Goulding recently completed her first US tour in support of the American release of her debut album Lights.
She previously admitted that, while she would love to find the same success in the country as she has back home in the UK, she wants to do it naturally and without help from her record label.
The 24-year-old also described 2010 as the hardest year of her life, as her hectic schedule left her feeling exhausted and overwhelmed.
