.@EllieGoulding talks social media: "This idea of capturing the moment rather than living in the moment is quite absurd, and I think that at some point we need to snap out of it." https://t.co/sAIsbMlQ8g— W magazine (@wmag) July 30, 2019
For a recent interview with w magazine, the publication asked her thoughts on social media, to which she said “I didn’t really grow up with social media, so it’s never really been a huge part of my life. It’s a bizarre thing, and I think you can honestly say objectively social media is bad for you, and you have to remember that there’s real life, and experiencing real life in the moment is more valuable than taking an Instagram Story of you walking down the street, I don’t know. This idea of capturing the moment rather than living in the moment is quite absurd...”
When asked if she’d allow social media on her wedding day she said “Definitely not. No. I encourage people to be in the moment, and therefore that isn’t compatible with Instagramming every five seconds.”
She acknowledges that unlike her, her fiancé Caspar Jopling, is quite active in social media.
Would you ban social media on a special event?
