ELLIE GOULDING: A MELODY OF MOVEMENT

Ellie Goulding’s bevy of talents ranges from the obvious — singing and songwriting — to the far less obvious — handstands.

 Yes, handstands. The award-winning multi-platinum artist is becoming somewhat of an expert in balancing her body on nothing more than a pair of palms and ten fingers.

On the surface, these handstands exhibit Goulding’s athleticism. But perhaps on a deeper level, they represent her knack for turning perspectives upside down.

The 28-year-old England native is more than just a powerful voice and a celebrity entertainer. She’s a beacon for a movement in which strength is the new standard of beauty.

“I feel quite proud to be an ambassador for women who realize that being fit is better than being skinny,” Goulding says. “I like the fact that I can be that role model. I still think there’s a little bit of work to do with promoting fit, not thin. But it’s getting there.”
