Sophie Ellis BextorEarlier today, I had a very nice phone call with the returning queen of all things Frostypop, Ms Sophie Ellis Bextor. Now, she's been away for a while, raising her little boy Sonny with her hubby Richard. You may have got to know Richard a little better recently as the bass player with a new band called the Feeling, who've done quite well. You might even have heard one or two of their songs, in passing...

Here's just some of the exciting things I discovered:

Thing 1: Sophie likes to dress her son up as a penguin.
Thing 2: She likes to wear his dressing up clothes too.
Thing 3: She would like to end her days as a bitter old hag on the arm of her famous rock star husband.

Thing 4: She wants record companies to run more of their decisions about other artists past her before they go ahead.
Thing 5: She doesn't even know how to change the background colour on a MySpace page (GOD! THE SHAME!)

But don't just take my word for it...listen to the whole thing yourself, right here...

    If you were lucky enough to see Sophie Ellis-Bextor on Saturday at The Gale. I am sure you will all agree how amazing she was last night! An excellent performance yet again from Sophie! Loved it when she performed her new song catch you.. which I think is number 10 from downlaods alone ...??!

    She also performed some of the great dance floor classics... ‘yes sir I can boogie’ and ‘murder on the dance floor. Sophie you were an absolute delight. I am still in shock from managing to grasp her gorgeous hands. Welcome back Sophie Ellis-Bextor! Good luck for number 1

    Good point! How to contradict a header with the first sentence!

    Sophie is great. She has an original voice and doesn't have to great her baps or her backside out to sell her music.
