She thinks they're a disgrace...

Earlier this week the Faroe Islands commenced work on an ambitious new tunnel, designed to cut down transport times for the tiny community.

A collection of islands in a rough spot of the North Sea, the work has been celebrated by those involved as a major step forward.

Except – somewhat curiously – for Ellie Goulding. The pop queen reckons it's a "disgrace" which is, we think, a bit of an over-reaction.

So, what does she mean by this? Perhaps she's actually referring to the Grind, the much-denounced local practise of culling pilot whales.

Or maybe she doesn't like tunnels…?

We aren't one to put words in her mouth, but it's certainly Today's Bizarre Social Media Moment.
