Craig Kilborn Interview (February 2002)

During Kylie's promotional trip to America for 2001 "Fever" album, she stopped by the Late Late Show studio's and spoke to the shows host Craig Kilborn about meeting Prince Charles for the first time, her wax figures at Madame Tussauds in London, her favorite American pasttime, and the old days of Neighbours and the Loco-Motion. Worth a watch.

Alone Again (Unreleased Song)

I didn't really want to add video's of the fan made nature to the site but I decided to vote against myself and add this one because I really enjoy this unreleased song from Kylie which was written by Madonna and Rick Nowles during the creative process of Madonna's Ray Of Light album (1998).

Once it was scrapped from Ray Of Light, the song was given to Kylie for inclusion on her album Fever (2001). Kylie recorded the song but it did not make the cut for the album and talk later surfaced that it would be included as a b-side to her single "Come Into My World", but these plans also fell through.

The track has to this date not been officially released but it was overheard in Kylie's recent documentary "White Diamond" during scenes of her discussing her ex boyfriend Olivier Martinez. Madonna was thanked in the credits of the film.

Kylie's New Beau?

The rumourmill has been abuzz with reports that Kylie has found a new man. Kylie, who split with her long time boyfriend, actor Olivier Martinez last year, was seen in the arms of Spanish supermodel Andres Velencoso at burlesque artist Dita Von Teese' birthday party.

On lookers were reported as saying, "It was Dita's party but Kylie was definitely the star of the show. She was turning heads and people were asking about the guy she was sitting with."
Velencoso, who has posed for designers from Emporio Armani to Chanel, is 10 years younger than Kylie and bears a striking resemblance to Martinez. I say go for it Kylie.

The Minogue Sisters Take It All

This is almost literally every gay man's musical wet dream come true! As mentioned in her interview on Rove Live, Kylie intends to take back her "biggest gay icon" stature from Soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo by recording a duet with her sister Dannii.

The two sisters who have performed only a handful of times together (most recently Dannii joined Kylie to sing the Robbie Williams duet Kids during one show of her sisters Showgirl Homecoming tour), have joined forces and recorded a cover version of the ABBA classic "The Winner Takes It All" which will be used as the theme song for the new BBC2 comedy sitcom "Beautiful People".

The song will be featured as part of the soundtrack for the show that will be released in stores October 20th in the UK. Anything would be better than hearing Meryl Streep trying to sing it in Mamma Mia! Sweet Lord, that was awful.

Kylie: The Musical

Kylie is set to start writing a musical for the West End in London that will be based around some of her biggest hits.

She is joining together with Australian author and friend Kathy Lette to write the dialogue for the show and she promises her fans that the show will be raunchy. Kathy says,

"We'll weave all her hits together into a great storyline,"

"Kylie never does anything naff. She's got a finely tuned crap antenna and we don't suffer from an irony deficiency."

Kylie's sister Dannii is also reported to be working on the project and they all hope to turn the musical into a film if it's a success. I would say that this is a bad idea but it seems to be the big thing to do these days. This is very "The Boy From Oz", or even Jersey Boys. Some make it and some don't.
