Ellie Goulding not recognised by driver
Ellie Goulding’s cab driver told her he didn’t like her music.
The ‘Burn’ hitmaker was amused when she used taxi app Uber and her driver told her how he had had someone from her band in his car earlier in the day – but failed to recognise his famous passenger.
She tweeted: "Mine said he had someone from Ellie Gouldings band in earlier. But didn’t like her music soooo. (sic)"
Ellie was tweeting in reply to fellow singer Lorde, who had told her followers how her own Uber driver had spent their journey telling her about having an unnamed famous passenger.
And the ‘Royals’ hitmaker admitted she felt he wasn’t as impressed to have her in his vehicle.
She tweeted: "uber driver currently busting a nut about the fact that there was a ‘celebrity passenger’ just before me
"i can tell our ride, by comparison, sparkles significantly less for him
"i can feel it from the back seat, his dazed glow. he’s probably now pretending that i am not here, that they are still together, and alone (sic)"
Ellie and Lorde aren’t the only stars to have had unfortunate incidents with the taxi app as Kanye West recently almost missed a private showing of Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest movie ‘The Brothers Grimsby’ because his car took him to the wrong place.
Sacha,44, previously said of the hilarious blunder: "Unfortunately, Kanye was brought around to the wrong address. His Uber dropped him off at the wrong address and he ended up sitting on the street for half an hour."
And a few weeks later, the ‘Famous’ rapper hitched a ride with a paparazzo after his hired car left him stranded.
As he walked towards the pile of photographers lingering outside a fitness facility, the 38-year-old rapper clutched his phone as he looked around for the motor he’d rented.
He pondered, "Where is this black sedan? before adding to the paps, "Hang on one second. [I] Uber everywhere."
The photographer filming the fashion designer immediately offered to give him a lift to "wherever" he needs to go.
Kanye replied as a smile spread across his face: "I don’t need Uber anymore. I just have the paps take me where I want to go! I’ll ride with you then. come on, let’s go!"
