Skrillex and Ellie Goulding’s collabo finally gets the video treatment.
Skrillex and Ellie Goulding are no longer together, which gives us a major case of the SADZ. However, we do have something to remember them by: their time together in the studio, of course! “Summit,” a collabo from Skrillex’s Bangarang EP, marked the first time the former couple ever recorded together, and even though they have since parted ways, Ellie still totally respects her ex’s work: “We’re both still big fans of each other, and nothing changes that, so, if we get a chance, we will,” she recently told MTV News. See? They’re being totally adult about this, guys. Not like any of OUR breakups (we are STILL not talking to you, you know who).

While Skrillex only shows up sporadically in “Summit,” his friends take up the remaining screen time (sadly, there is none for Ellie). Besides, Skrillex’s limited participation is probably for the best, as his friends are straight up CRAY. If he DID decide to spend all his time onscreen, let’s just say that his mugshot would probably end up plastered all over the internet the next day. Because when you trespass, start fires (including setting yourself ablaze), are drunk in public, and make out with mannequins, that’s basically an open invitation for TMZ to come a-calling. Luckily Skrillex’s buds manage to survive their night of debauchery — whew! Though we wouldn’t be surprised if the next day consisted of lots of carbs, Advil, and untagging spree across all social platforms. While it looks like amazing fun, Ellie was probably smart to skip the “Summit” party. It’s always awkward running into an ex at those things, anyway.
