A fan quizzed Sophie Ellis-Bextor on how she keeps her skin looking so good. Sophie responded, “I am very lucky in that my skin is naturally clear and pale. I stay out the sun, don’t smoke and drink lots of water and since I was about 18 I hardly get any spots. I used to before that, though, so I really appreciate it now when I’m complimented on my complexion. I remember when I used to feel very self-conscious about it. It is true that they touch up stuff in pictures but I am lucky to have no scars and I hope it stays that way. There are other things that I have had touched up, I’m sure, but I’m not going to tell you what!”

Sophie explained, “I am going to be in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina, and I am hoping to stop off in New York for a couple of days on the way back too.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor Gives Her Opinion On American Pop
July 28, 2002 – Hera Diani of The Jakarta Post spoke with Sophie for her thoughts on American pop music. “I think American pop is, like, really slick,” she said. “American artists can spend two years on the development and get stuff right before they release it to the public. Whereas with English and European stuff it’s more like rough and ready. I quite like that (the latter). I like being distinct, I think it’s quite charming. Everything is like a little bit homemade. But on the other hand, English pop stars, all the boybands get fat after a year. While in America, they are always like, you know, muscley.”
As for the chances of her own success in the U.S., Sophie said, “I feel that I’m going to have success in America, but I may not succeeded in the whole of America. I think that’s a bit of a stupid attitude. It’s actually a bit greedy.”
