Ellie Goulding performed in shorts with a “poo trap door” at Coachella.
The 34-year-old pop star has revealed she needed to take urgent action as she was feeling really unwell at the time, and feared she was on the cusp of a major embarrassment.
She said: “The last time I played Coachella, I had a stomach bug. I thought that something could happen downstairs.”
The ‘Love Me Like You Do’ hitmaker made the confession during an appearance on ‘Never Mind the Buzzcocks, admitting she needed a “poo trap door” to get her through the gig.
She said: “I was wearing leather shorts – look it’s not going to go anywhere! It’s not going to soak up in the leather – it’s just going to come out.
“So it just so happened to be the design included a zip all the way around so I could just run off and…”
Ellie was then interrupted by comedian Greg Davies, who asked: “So you did have a poo trap door?”
She replied: “Fine, I had a poo trap door.”
However, the ‘How Long Will I Love You?’ singer seemed to imply that the day was saved by American rock band Kings of Leon.
She said: “It just so happened a band, I think it was Kings of Leon, I can’t remember – they had a cat litter which they used to pee in with other humans.”
When pushed by Greg to confirm whether she used the litter tray to relieve herself, the pop star gave a telling smirk.
The comedian then said: “Ellie Goulding uses a cat litter tray. Let’s get that trending online.”
