Ellie Goulding has "no ego" when she's with Dougie Poynter.
The 28-year-old singer is happy to close the door on her performer persona when she is with the McBusted bassist and loves the fact their respective careers don't come first when they are together.
She said: "When I'm with him, I'm just his girlfriend, nothing else. He's been doing this much longer, which is a first for me. We can have a really healthy understanding of what we do, but we're not too into it. There's no ego or anything like that."
Though the 'Love Me Like You Do' hitmaker has fallen victim to social media trolls, she doesn't get upset by the negative comments as she is comfortable with herself.
She told the new issue of Britain's Women's Health magazine: "I Instagram and I tweet and I perform in whatever I want and if you accept that you're always going to get negativity then you can overcome it."
She also feels that if she reads anything about her in the press that isn't true, she is able to "blur" it out and get on with her life.
She added: "I feel like when things happen that make me sad, when people might talk about me or when the press might say things about me that aren't true, I feel like I can deal with it now. So when you see a nasty comment, you don't think, 'That's not fair'. It just kind of turns into a blur. I feel strong. I mean, physically I'm strong but I feel like it does add to me being a bit stronger and being able to deflect things easier."
