Sophie Ellis Bextor is on the cover of The Glasgow Daily Record’s 192 insert, and was asked about her newly blonde hairdo. “I think the wind changed,” she said. “It’s not a statement. I just got bored. I was a brunette for years I will go back to it, I like it best but I thought, let’s change. Last year I was a red-head.” She says she’s enjoying the new look and the attention it gets, but she admits it’s a “pain in the ass” having to always do the roots. But she dismisses claims she did the dye because she’s split up with long-term boyfriend and manager Andy Boyd, although she is getting more attention from men. She says, “I have had 500 people ask, ‘Do you have more fun as a blonde?’. Maybe it’s a bit naive, but I don’t feel like a different person.”
