Ellie Goulding appears as the cover girl in the August issue of the U.K. edition of Glamour this upcoming month. In the article, the 27-year-old singer talked a little bit about her friendship with fellow superstar singers Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

"We're friends because they understand the predicaments. They see what is and isn't real," the British singer admitted.

She even shared that she gets some tough love from Swift occasionally.

Goulding said, "I'm not anywhere near their level of fame, but if I say, 'Oh God, Taylor, this happened,' she'll be like, 'Girl, that's nothing.' Suck it up, kind of thing!"

"I have strong female characters all around me, really cool women," she continues. "My tour manager is a woman, my manager is a woman. I want to be surrounded by powerful women, not men."

As for her sexy figure, the singer wanted to put an end to a rumor that she's had any kind of body surgery. "I'm petrified of anything like that. My friends will think that's hilarious. I ran every day for seven months, maybe too obsessively, and when I stopped I became curvier. My boobs look bigger because my waist is smaller. People underestimate how you can shape your body. Since I stopped eating meat and fish, my body's better than ever."
