Ellie Goulding Might Anger EL James With 'Fifty Shades' Revelation

File this one under: How is this even possible? Despite scoring a Golden Globe nomination for the song "Love Me Like You Do," singer Ellie Goulding says she has never seen Fifty Shades of Grey.

Ellie was successful in Great Britain before EL James came calling, but she shot to international fame after contributing a song to the oft-praised soundtrack, which also features The Weeknd. However, the 29-year-old revealed to talk show host Jonathan Ross, who said he hasn't seen Fifty Shades, that she has yet to sit and watch the film, either.

"Honestly I never in a million years thought I'd be nominated, it was a Golden Globe and two Grammys in the same week," Ellie admitted about her recent honor. "That just all kind of hit me and it was in the craziest week of my life."

Unfortunately, Ellie didn't go on to explain why she hasn't seen Fifty Shades yet — I mean: Shouldn't she have had a front-row seat at one of the movie's premieres?! But she went on to speak so much about her hectic life and schedule that the assumption is that her many responsibilities have a little something to do with it.

More from The Stir: Ellie Goulding May Get a Second Chance at 'Fifty Shades' Stardom

It's pretty interesting: Ellie is probably the third most famous person to emerge from Fifty Shades (after Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, of course) and she has no idea what the movie is all about. Even people who haven't seen the film (and have no plans to) have likely heard her song, considering how it plays all day, every day, on certain radio stations. 

Time will tell whether she contributes another successful track to Fifty Shades Darker. Or will James ban her until she gets on board and takes a few hours out of her schedule to watch the first film?
