Pop singer Ellie Goulding (33, “Love Me Like You Do”) considers the worldwide “Black Lives Matter” movement to be overdue. "We as white people have finally woken up and see what has been going on at our front door for years," said the British woman to the German Press Agency.
"I'm ashamed of it and I'm embarrassed that I didn't pay attention to it before."
The musician said that she had paid too little attention to racism before the current wave of protests. «I want to learn a lot more about it, it changes my view of the world. I think having empathy is crucial. »
The 33-year-old, who released her new album “Brightest Blue” on Friday, has spoken several times about the protests in the past few weeks. «I feel responsibility because I have a platform. Some people in my position may not want to use them for different reasons. But I think it's better to use them, ”Goulding said.
