can we have a gig Sophie??

I was just thinking.. Sophie has 3 albums out, and she hasn't really done a tour whatsoever in ages. Girls Aloud had their "party". So why doesn't Sophie have one, sometime in 2009 before the baby?? 2 hours, a televised event. Not a gigantic crowd, an intimate gig, with a few hundreds of people, her friends and family, celebrities... just to keep the fans happy..

A good time for Rimmel also to place their products in the background, using standees or whatever, sponsoring the event.

I was thinking of an elaborate tracklist, with a few guest appearances from her friends..

Sophia Loren
Video Killed The Radio Star - with The Feeling
Love Is Here - with The Feeling
Take Me Home
(Groovejet) If This Ain't Love
New York City Lights
I Won't Change You
Lover
The Walls Keep Saying Your Name - with Mika
CIrcles (Just My Good Time) - with Mika
Catch You
If I Can't Dance
Today The Sun's On Us
Move This Mountain
Love It Is Love
Crying At The Discotheque - with Sinead Quinn
Mixed Up World - with Sinead Quinn
Heartbreak Make Me A Dancer
Off & On
Yes Sir, I Can Boogie
Get Over You
Murder On The Dancefloor

Sophie is not going to go with "Split Second Love"

Sophie changed her mind and will release her fourth album in late-summer/autumn sometime in 2009. The name "Split Second Love" was her idea for the new album, but she wasn't happy to find that name on the internet already, so she will think about a brand new title. It was always a pleasure for her to find extraordinary names for her albums, so it will be - again - a secret until the very end for the fans. She really wants to come back after the birth of her baby...

Most of the information on wikipedia is not confirmed. So don't let yourselves get carried away. Sophie may not release Sophia Loren as the first single from the album. In fact, Off & On and Heartbreak might not even make into onto the final cut. Lets pray it does though, it would be criminal to waste them, even if they land up as bonus tracks or iTunes downloads they should be a part of the album!

Inside sources reveal that Sophie is also planning to use her MySpace to upload some demos there. This suggestion came up on the UKMix forums, and Sophie decided to go with the idea. However, she may not upload anything there till 2009, which does make sense. Afterall, the album is going to be out only after August, so she wouldn't want to kill the surprise by putting up the demos right away.

Also confirmed by inside sources, Carnival won't make it to the final cut. Sophie got the demo and tried to make a song out of it, but it wasn't fruitful! So that song is not official anymore!

An interview from Panele mag

Sophie's management team have updated the official site stating "Next year Sophie will be returning to the pop scene with an all new album and of course, the odd single or two"... (somehow, that sentence worries me, and i don't know why)

Anyway, here's the interview from Panele (thanks to Pork Smork from seb.net)
Sophie Ellis Bextor – a Star . . .and no Murder On The Dance Floor

There is a lot of rumors about her, but she think that it is because she doesn’t speak a lot about her personal life. She has no problem with "bums" (homeless), but "they" talk that she hates them. She can call her self a electro dance pop artist, but she doesn’t have many celebrity friends..

I heard you are very busy – what are you doing?
I am finishing recording of my fourth album and I’m in a make-up commercial campaign.

But there is Kate Moss
Me too now. Their make up is so bright so I couldn’t not to participate – it is like my image as well. But don’t you worry – I’m not pushing her out – she is still in a campaign.

Know her personally?
We spoke a few times, but we’re definitely not friends….

Records, concerts, campaign… do you still has time for family?
When needed I always have time for family. Maybe I’ll sleep less at night… seriously when I am so busy I really feel a lack of sleep. There is nothing more pleasuring like going to bed these days….

Does your son not disturb your career?
I would say he helps. Sonny is very communicative and calm kid. He is my inspiration.

Is it true that you are going to have a second child?
Well – yes. I always dreamed about bigger family – and here it comes. March and April I am going not to do shows and after that I’m going to get back to work.

How would you describe your husband?
He’s very sweet and patient. We are five years together and we get along very well. By the way he is a musician too. He play bass guitar in The Feeling.

Two musicians in one family – isn’t this a atomic milkshake?
I guess it would be so, if there would be two singers, two leaders in a family. Or if Richard would decide to come play in my band. I wouldn’t let him to do that. I know lots of families where is two musicians – and they get along very well, while are playing separately…..

Do you watch your shows?
Sometimes I surf internet an watch, how I was looking before. It is really interesting to compare what I was and what I am now.

Do you read your interviews?
I would lie if I would say no. To not read about your self is the same thing as not to know what is talking behind your eyes.

What biggest nonsense have you read about your self?
I don’t really pay my attention to such things. Why should I react if those things being said aren’t really about me.

I read that you hate “bums”
What? I newer gave any comments about homeless…. I don’t know how it is here in Lithuania, but in London there are really lots of homeless. I am not against them, but if I’ll meet one in my bedroom that would really be to much. I am so sweet… [for the record – is afraid to be liked deadly…]

What would you be if you wouldn’t be a pop singer?
I would walk through restaurants and do retentions about their kitchen. You see I really love to eat. Such job would be perfect to me…. When I was younger I dreamed to be an actress, but who didn’t?

Is it true, that Madonna had influence to your music?
Part of that is true. I like Madonna very much. She is a great singer, fabulous show master, I admire her very much, and that’s it.

Have you met her?
Not personally but I was at her show.

How many friends from show business do you have?
Not that much. I have to work with them, do shows together, but I am not in a hurry to call them friends.

Who is your best friend?
Hard to say… If from show business, I would say – my husband – he is very clever and kind.

How do you spend your spare time? I don’t believe that you don’t have it…
Most of the time is spend with husband and son. I spend a lot of time with parents as well. I am very lucky that me and my mom lives very close each other so we meet and talk very often.

What about clubbing?
It happens quiet often in near past, cause me and my husband did a bit of DJ’ing. I like clubbing. But I don’t drive myself like I was doing when I was twenty one… xe, xe, xe…

All celebrities has a star disease, did you already had it?
No. You know I’m too healthy. (laughing)

Have you ever had maniac fans?
I heard that there are such ones, but I guess I am so lucky. There is no one who continuing sending me letters or do other kind of following. All my fans are very kind and not disturbing, so I always trying to communicate with them in forums. It is better for them to know everything from me, then some other source.

Maybe you can give me a secret – how to become a star?
Hmmmm… can’t tell you exactly… maybe it needs a lot of make up and blazing outfits!
As soon as I heard this formula I bought a lot of make up. What for make up for men? Dream to become a star is really close to me… but it is shame, that I don’t know how rally is that “a lot”, cause I’m putting that make up, but ability to sing don’t appear yet… ok, I’m trying “murder on a dance floor” once again…

Sophie was at her "best friend's" wedding..

Okay, still no news about the album. Sophie is silent, which i'm assuming is because she's extremely busy juggling recording and maternity work.. But, Sophie attended her best friend's wedding. (Sinead, i didn't know they were best friends!! i didn't know Sophie had a best friend!).. and here's something about that..

Fermanagh singer Sinead Quinn — of Fame Academy fame — got hitched to her rock star boyfriend Paul Stewart at the weekend.

Sinead (28) and her new husband, who is the drummer for chart topping band The Feeling, got married at the Sacred Heart Church in her native Irvinestown, Co Fermanagh.

Sinead’s best friend and pop starlet Sophie Ellis-Bextor and husband Richard Jones, bassist with the band, joined the rest of The Feeling — Dan Gillespie-Sells, Kevin Jeremiah and Ciaran Jeremiah — and other music industry figures at the event.

Fans lined the chapel grounds and streets waiting for the bride-to-be to arrive — half an hour late.

“I wouldn’t leave the house until I got my sister to get me a glass of champagne,” Sinead said.

“I drank that before leaving — through a straw because I didn’t want to ruin my lipstick.”

She also said: “Irvinestown means the world to me and so does everyone in it. I wouldn’t have got where I am today if it wasn’t for the massive support I’ve been given from the local people in my town.

“There’s nowhere I’d rather get married than where it all started.”

Speaking afterwards, The Feeling lead singer Dan Gillespie-Sells described the wedding as “beautiful”.

“It was beautiful, really lovely. We only played in Belfast on Tuesday night so it’s been great being in Northern Ireland so much this week. We organised the tour around the wedding because we wanted to make sure Paul could be here to make his own big day.”

Sophie Ellis-Bextor said: “I was in Fermanagh a few years ago for a charity gig with Sinead and the boys in the band. It’s been lovely being back for her wedding.

“It was a great service and Sinead’s dad was a really brilliant singer; he even got a big round of applause from the entire congregation.”

Sophie Ellis-Bextor switches on Christmas lights

Pop star Sophie Ellis Bextor was surrounded by fans in Alfriston at the weekend as she turned on the village Christmas Tree lights.

The multi platinum singer/songwriter met with the crowds on Saturday as she signalled the start of a traditional family Christmas.

Sophie, whose family live in Sussex and whose father Robin Bextor took over Alfriston's Moonrakers earlier this year, spent many happy times in Alfriston as a child.

The mum-of-one, who is pregnant with her second child, is known for a string of massive pop hits.

On Saturday Sophie, who is an ambassador for the Child Poverty Action charity, collected donations in exchange for giving fans the chance to have a chat, and get an autograph or photograph.

Afterwards the singer enjoyed a family celebration with her brother, two sisters and other relatives.
