Kylie Minogue

"Locomotion"

(1988)
.
.

.
Genre: Pop
We, (Australia, New Zealand & England) remember her from the TV show "Neighbours" (Whatever happened to Henry?) .Most of the world knows about her illness from Breast Cancer recently and wish her a speedy complete recovery and get back to videos like "Cant Get You Out Of My Head" mmmmmm.

Lets look at some of the comments about Kylie.....

"Minogue is regarded as a gay icon, which she encourages with comments such as "I am not a traditional gay icon. There's been no tragedy in my life, only tragic outfits." While part of her appeal lies in her flamboyant costumes and her confident sexual posturing, she acknowledges the gay community throughout the world by performing at gay venues and events, and by openly supporting AIDS and gay rights causes. She has said that she believes gay fans responded to her apparent distress when the news media began heavily criticising her in 1989, and that those fans have remained loyal, explaining, "My gay audience has been with me from the beginning... they kind of adopted me"."
"Despite her commercial success, and her acceptance by a large audience as a contemporary sex symbol, her critics describe her willingness to display her body as an attempt to disguise a lack of talent. Her detractors, such as those discussed in the book La La La, have described her as a "one dimensional performer" and "pretty, but mindless and talentless". Miki Berenyi of the group Lush said "I have a massive problem with her because she epitomises the acceptable role ... it's a shame she gets so much credibility when there are so many women worth a hundred times that. It's war & you shouldn't stick up for Kylie, she should be fought at every turn"."
Hey, why is there not a "Hetro Icon" for us hetro's? And who would it be? I struggle with the term "Gay Icon" i cannot figure why that represents savy? Oh well.
