The 'Burn' star opens up about not starting her career as a singer at a younger age.

Ellie Goulding says she was so unconfident in her younger days that she didn't believe she could sing well enough to pursue a music career.

The 'Anything Could Happen', who has two successful solo albums under her belt, says she regrets not following a pop music career earlier on in her life.

"I wish I'd pursued music a little earlier and taken it more seriously," Ellie reveals in the new issue of Grazia, while looking back over her music career to date. "I didn't believe I could sing or would go anywhere!"

Despite regretting the fact that she didn't try to become a singer earlier on, Ellie says that in retrospect there is still nothing she would change about her past.

"There is nothing I'd change," she revealed. "Not even travelling around, because if I was at home I'd be moaning that I wasn't on the road.

"I'd be wary to change anything," Ellie added.
