Sophie Ellis-Bextor is an English singer, songwriter, and model. She first came to fame in the late 1990s, as the lead singer of the indie rock band Theaudience. After the group broke up, Ellis-Bextor went solo, achieving widespread success in the early 2000s. In her former blog The Tig, Meghan raved about Sophie’s music, including her hit Come With Us, which is featured on one of her playlists. She wrote: “Yes, sweet Sophie stole our musical hearts with the hit, Murder on the Dance Floor, a tune that has stood the test of time for our requisite late night grooving, but her new album Familia offers this beat titled, Come with Us that channels old-school Madonna vibes like no other. “Love, love, love! Bravo, Sophie! Love to you and the family!” Unfortunately, she wasn’t invited to the wedding.
Strange But True: Sophie’s song ‘Groovejet’, went straight to the top of the charts, pushing Victoria Beckham’s out of the number one spot.
Although Meghan wasn’t able to attend Serena William’s wedding to Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian due to a conflict with her acting schedule (wrapping up the filming of Suits). Meghan describes Serena as being “her closest friend.” Meghan said they met back in 2014 while playing flag football at DIRECTV’s Celebrity Beach Bowl and hit it off immediately.
In an interview posted on her lifestyle magazine, The Tig, Meghan said: “(Serena) quickly became a confidante I would text when I was traveling, the friend I would rally around for her tennis matches, and the down-to-earth chick I was able to grab lunch with just a couple weeks ago in Toronto. We are both the same age, have a penchant for hot sauces, and adore fashion, but what connects us more than those things is perhaps our belief in exceeding expectations – our endless ambition.”
Strange But True: Not only has she won 308 grand slams and 4 Olympic gold medals but Serena also speaks French fluently.
