British pop star Ellie Goulding has spoken out to dismiss rumours she is risking her health by replacing meals with intravenous vitamin drips, branding the gossip "absurd".

The Burn singer has been open about her health troubles in recent weeks, revealing she has been battling asthma on tour and struggling with exhaustion due to her hectic schedule.

Goulding recently revealed she boosted herself with a vitamin drip backstage at a TV show over the holidays.

"I had to pay for me and the band to have IV vitamin drips. Can you believe it? We're backstage at Alan Carr (TV chat show) and we're all sat there on drips," Goulding told Red Magazine.

However, Goulding has spoken out to insist her comments about the vitamin-boosting treatment have been taken out of context, and she is adamant the drip is not a substitute for healthy meals.
