Ellie Goulding has announced that she would be quitting music next year to take time to "live a bit". The "Anything can happen" singer confirmed her split from boyfriend of 2 years, Dougie Poynter and says the past couple of weeks have been tough. She intends to take time off after her Delirium tour in October to mend her broken heart and get to know herself.

Last year in one of her interviews, she described Dougie as ‘one of the most special people in the world’, and  referred to him as ‘the one’. She had even admitted in interviews how they had spoken of tying the knot and having children...... And now this...pretty sad though

According to her, she's not writing any new stuff and has no idea when she would release a new album as she doesn't know what the future holds. "Next year I need to live a bit. Who knows? My situation has changed." so she said.

The 29 year old is currently enjoying her UK leg of her world tour while her ex is in LA forging an acting career.

Push through Ellie, you're only human after all. Take as much time as you need
