Speaking to MTV, the 19-year-old claimed 'Mirror Man' is an "edgy" new tune that is completely different to her usual style.

"For me it's a track that shows a side of my character people don't really get to see - unless you rub me up the wrong way," she warned.

Hinting the guy in question had done just that, Ella revealed: "[The song] is simply about the most self-centred person I've ever met. It's about someone who loves themselves before anyone else."


She then joked: "They probably love themselves so much, they don't even realise it's about them!"

Now we're all intrigued, right?!
