Ellie Goulding explains why she deleted THAT picture with Katy Perry

Hmm.

Earlier this week, Ellie Goulding (and Lorde!) posted pictures of them hanging out with BFF Taylor Swift’s sworn enemy, Katy Perry.

Dun, dun, DUN.

They both deleted the pics, making it even more conspicuous and dodge, TBF but now Ellie has explained why she deleted it.

"I deleted that [photo] because I looked bad in it. And I think I was a bit drunk," she explained to reporters at Glamour UK's Woman of the Year awards this week, as Vulture notes. "I zoomed in on my actual photo, and I was like,no."

As much as we don’t like promoting cat fights, we ain’t buying it Els. There’s nothing wrong with how you look in that picture and it’s also huh-larious because Lorde is living the dancing woman emoji. We love it so much, here it is again:

Katy Perry is Taylor Swift’s ‘straight-up enemy’ and Ellie even appeared in the video slamming the poor poppet. We reckon they deleted it because of a certain Swifty’s reaction.

SPECULATION.

But Ellie is defo Queen of Diplomacy or some shiz. She concluded:

"That's so funny that um, that's even a thing," adding that she deletes things all the time. “I'm great friends with Katy, I'm great friends with Taylor. That's very silly."

We hear ya.
