Video: Taylor Swift and Ellie Goulding Perform “Anything Could Happen”

My friend and I were talking last night about about the VMAs and I mentioned Ellie Goulding, telling him that I love her more than ever because of Halcyon Days. (It’s all about “Midas Touch” and “Flashlight”)…

Me: The new songs uhhh so good!
Him: You two should have lesbo kids!
Me: I would totally have lesbo kids with her any day any time
Him: P (:)
Me: I’ll throw her in a burlap sack full of crumpets
Him: Laaaaybia
Me: And impregnate her with copies of Downton Abbey

So, bad British stereotypes aside, Ellie was weirdly not asked to perform at the VMAs because she’s just too talented for Miley’s steamy foam herpes finger. (Fortunately “twerk” was added to the dictionary and it’s a great Scrabble word.) BUT there is this pre-VMA video of Taylor Swift and her at Staples Center.

Swifty introduced Goulding as one of her “favorite” artists and also her friend. Awwwww.

Video: Ellie Goulding – “Anything Could Happen”

Ellie Goulding lays around in mysterious wreckage on the beach in her new video and there are balls everywhere. Floating metal balls.

“Anything Could Happen” is off Goulding’s second highly anticipated album, Halcyon, and is technically the second single after “Hanging On,” which was probably not chosen as lead radio-friendly track because of Tinie Tempah’s song-ruining verse.  Continue reading “Video: Ellie Goulding – “Anything Could Happen””
