The lady who brought us "Lights" has a real dark streak, by her own admission.

Ellie Goulding says she recently re-read diaries she kept as an eight-year-old and again as a teenager. Her reaction: "Whoa! I'm worried about this girl!"

Goulding cites Bjork and Grimm's fairy tales as a big influence, but while she has dark tendencies, she's not a dark person.

She says he's happy and friendly most of the time.
