"I just hate her delays and her canceling stuff, that oh I will release a cd, oh no I won't, I will tour, I won't, I will tour with Take That, I will release a best of, oh the bonus tracks are good so I am doing a proper cd, oh no I am not, I am releasing a baby instead etc etc BORED me to death and she is now a joke to me, like Jelly and Leona.Nowhere without you and If you go also make me mad, staying as son singles while she released CRAP like I Won't Flop You and Me & My Flop."
I know there are many more than just one or two fans who feel this way. I'm a little worried about Sophie at the moment. There's a lot of good popstars out there, and she really has to stay in the top 10 if she wants to prove that she is any good. Not that chart success matters that much to her fans. But it is a big requirement if you're a musician, don't you think? The album also needs to sell well. Trip The Light Fantastic sold lesser than her 2nd album, even though it was commercially superior. Why? - i have blamed Sophie and her management enough for the wrong decisions and cancellations.
Sophie's 4th album has to accomplish a lot:
1. Re-gain the loyalty of fans who are either too upset to bother about Sophie anymore, or who hate her so much for cancelling the tour twice and delaying her albums.
2. Live up to the expectations of all her fans.
3. Do complete justice to all those big producers on the album.
4. Sell more than Shoot From The Hip at the very least.
5. Re-gain her image as a confident popstar.
Do you feel the same....?
The only silver line i can see now is Jordan Jay's (Universal A&R manager) tweet about the album:
"listening to the new Sophie Ellis Bextor songs for album 4- @Sophieeb - going to be the best album yet methinks!"
DISCLAIMER: The poster on PopJustice is a big fan, his other post says it all - "It's all in humour, don't worry... I am a fan remember! I have so much SEB stuff ****looks at Watch My Lips dvd and Music Gets The Best In Me CD Maxi***"
