Goulding said at the time, “I’ve dated Niall a few times, but I’ve never dated Ed.” .”
After years of refusing to bring up the issue again, Golding recently commented on the issue on TikTok as a “mistake.”
“I think I was really drunk when I wrote it,” she told the Daily Mail.
Goulding also touched on her youth when she was in her early 20s, stating, “I envy my friends spending their 20s with flirts and one-night stands and going through each 20s in private. I will.”
“But everything I did was written,” she said.
