When we think about our favorite idols, we often forget they have a big army of super talented producers, stylists and makeup artists standing behind them. But perhaps one of the most overlooked person in a celebrity or singer's life is their best friend.
And that's why Ellie Goulding's new video, dedicated to her real-life BFF Hannah, is so refreshing. Yep, the entire clip of the British singer's new record titled "Army" is a gorgeous black-and-white tribute to their friendship.
"I realized that I had focused a lot of writing on past relationships and it hit me I had never written about my best friend," Goulding is quoted on her YouTube channel.
"The person I met in college over 10 years ago. The person who was at my very first gig."
"The person who has seen me at my lowest, and the first person I call in muffled sobs when something bad happens."
"We've been deliriously happy together, deliriously tired, and deliriously sad together."
"I wanted to show our friendship for what it really is — honest, real, electric."
"I think about the times we drink together until neither of us can stand. The laughing at our own ridiculousness and foolishness. Comparing our trials and errors; overthinking our break ups and new loves, remembering everything we've been through to get to this point and being so proud of it. Two girls from Hereford trying our best in the city. We open our hearts up and take risks, but together we are more powerful than ever. We are challenged every day but we see it through, and sometimes it feels like we can conquer anything. "
Well put, Ellie.
