Kylie Minogue welcomes special guest on stage at the opening of World Pride

Both of their surgery is excellent. Madonna should take pointers.l

How typical that this big commercial Festival for Eunuchs has the sexless 'singing budgie' and her sister.

by Anonymousreply 2February 25, 2023 5:19 AM

Kylie looks pretty hot, and feminine, without being cheap. Hardly sexless. When I look at Madonna, I see a sex void, like a sex black hole. Anti-sex, like anti-matter.

Kylie sings tonight and the state-sponsored memorial for Olivia Newton John occurs tomorrow.

Kylie has never looked better, to be honest.

Her maturity is shining through and it definitely makes her more attractive. Pity, she can't get a man to love her

Dannii looks good too.

by Anonymousreply 5February 25, 2023 6:15 AM

She can get men to love her, but she's not into the kind of men who will love her. It's all because of Hutchence. She's got a bad boy addiction because of that formative experience. She's not going to marry an accountant.

I have Australian friends that have met Kylie in person. Lovely woman, but her face hasn't moved/shown expression in decades.

Her face looks pretty good here. There were some points many years ago when the injectables work was less stellar. To say her face doesn't move isn't true. You are thinking of Madonna.

Both Dannii and Kylie were messing with their faces a few years ago but they seem to have people around them who care about them or they at least have enough self-awareness to say enough.

Madonna has neither of those things.

She always said she was attracted to unconventional men. Kylie is a Gemini (mercurial, dualistic, and easily bored) and they definitely love the bad boys.

Unconventional... They've all been hot men in creative or show business roles.

On the plus side, she doesn't really need a "forever" relationship. She seems like a self-motivated, independent woman. She never had children and she's not going to now. She's got more money than she could spend in three lifetimes, she's got a very close family and a lot of old friends in Melbourne (and doubtless even more close friends in Britain), and she remains a huge hit and a level 1 gay icon in Australia and Britain. Under those circumstances, peppering her life with short but sexy relationships with bad boys is probably all the fun it seems.

R15, I thought the parade (for Sydney gay / lesbian Mardi Gras / world pride) was more political than normal and that the crowds loved having the event back on the streets. I’ve been out to a bunch of events over the past couple of weeks and the diversity, quality has been excellent. .

Actually, it's more disappointing in Kylie's case because she's always supposedly been an ally.

Danni remade her entire face and bought her boobs in the 90s. She was originally very plain and pudgy, plus known to be a conceited famewhore. She's grown up a bit.

Everyone I know who has ever dealt with Dannii, personally and professionally, has only the highest praise for her as a person. She was let down by poor A&R in the early part of her career. Neon Nights showed what she could do with the right help.

by Anonymousreply 19March 18, 2023 3:34 AM

Neon Nights is a great album. She really found her niche and then, sadly, her music career stalled. Neon Nights still sounds great 20 years later and is just as good as Kylie's best albums.

by Anonymousreply 20March 18, 2023 7:29 AM

I’d argue Neon Nights is stronger as a body of work than Light Years, Fever or Body Language. Shame Dannii wasn’t able to lock down that one inescapable hit to sell the album ala Spinning Around/CGYOOMH.

All I Wanna Do is a great pop single.

by Anonymousreply 22March 18, 2023 7:36 AM

R22 It’s a great song, but not nearly as iconic or ingrained in the public consciousness as Kylie’s signature hits. Dannii needed a monster song to break through, and that wasn’t it (despite a decent chart placement in the UK).

The Neon Nights singles did well but, yes, nothing as iconic or as well-remembered as Spinning Around, CGYOOMH or even Love at First Sight or Slow.

I Begin to Wonder is Dannii’s biggest song on streaming (by far), with 7.5 million streams. But compared to Kylie’s 350 million for CGYOOMH, Dannii is practically forgotten. All I Wanna Do is sitting at a measly 1.4 million streams.

It's true, but both look beautiful and well-proportioned on stage.

"I Begin to Wonder" did actually chart in the US dance top 20.

Dannii spent most of the early 90s in New York when Julian was starting his career in the soap Another World. She was already established by that time, but if she had worked on a US soap too it would have gained her a bigger profile.

by Anonymousreply 36March 18, 2023 12:39 PM

R12, Kylie dated the very unconventional-looking Nick Cave, and Pauly Shore too.

She also had a crush on Rutger Hauer and asked him to play her mafia don husband in her music video. So it appears she has might have been attracted to everyone from pretty boys, to studs, to gnarled old men.

by Anonymousreply 37March 18, 2023 12:53 PM

Dannii's debut album Love and Kisses was very decent. Her 2nd album Get Into You was dreadful. I always wondered what it would've been had her then shelved album, the superior The 1995 Sessions were released as the 2nd album instead.

Girl (3rd album) is very good and Neon Nights is the Crown gem in her discography so far. Club Disco is her latest album and sounds like a somewhat inferior version of Neon Nights. It has several great songs on it but is more of a compilation rather than an album since it is comprised of several then non-album singles, B-Sides and outtakes.

While Dannii has only sold less than 1/10 of the amount of records Kylie has sold (7-8 million vs. 80 million+) she has a good number of quality songs.

I usually stay away from celebrity products, so I was surprised to find out that Kylie's perfume 'Darling' (in production since 2006) was created by the legendary Thierry Wasser of Guerlain.

Kylie is the only celebrity he has created a scent for.

Some of his Guerlain parfums like 'Habit Rouge Extrait', and 'Le Parfum 68' go for several $1000 online. So to get a Wasser perfume for under $30 is incredible value.

Kylie wine is very good and that's why it's doing spectacularly well. I don't drink but my partner does and he knows his wine. He is not a fan of her music but drinks it constantly.

I concur, I’m not usually a rosé drinker but hers is excellent. Much better than anything else at that price point.

R41 It would be an incredible value - if it were any good. Unfortunately, Darling is just another sweet, generic fragrance the likes of which you smell in malls across America. Another La Vie Est Belle clone. Nothing like Guerlain’s high end masterpieces.

R43 My cougar friend (who loves her rose) has switched from Whispering Angel/Miraval to Kylie’s rose. She says it’s better tasting and a much better value. I’m not a rose drinker so I can’t vouch but she’s basically a high functioning alcoholic so I believe her.

My own cousin witnessed Dannii cunting out at a charity event when one of the unwell children mixed her up with Kylie. Plus the famewhoring when she was with Julian McMahon was extreme right throughout their rship, engagement, marriage (they took a trash mag with them on honeymoon!), separation, divorce and aftermath when she posed for Playboy before getting fake boobs and a remade face. McMahon was just as bad. He really came off completely lame. They were the least cool celebrity couple, appearing in all the trashy mags week after week. I remember when they first got together, Dannii had the most tragic hairstyle: mostly brunette but with a blonde fringe. Bogans in the 80s wore their hair like that. And looked better.

by Anonymousreply 47March 19, 2023 12:20 PM

I like Dannii but she had a much bigger head before all of the cosmetic surgery to better resemble Kylie. It's like she had buccal fat removal and a skull reduction. Weird.

Dannii and Julian had a good grift going. They not only did countless official shoots for the sad rags but also loads of fake pap sets, for which they got a cut. It all ended when she came home early one time and found him in bed with a cheap ugly slut from General Hospital. To make things worse he had spent all Dannii's pop star money and she was left so broke she had to whore her pussy to Playboy.

by Anonymousreply 51March 19, 2023 9:21 PM

She got booed at G-A-Y because management falsely led the audience to believe that the surprise performer was Kylie herself.

You know it's bad when Dannii Minogue gets booed at G-A-Y but La Toya Jackson doesn't (I'm actually a big fan of both of them).

Kylie is one of those celebrities I've never heard anything bad about. I've always had a soft spot for her.

Dannii, on the other hand, always bugged me for some reason. I remember when they really tried to make her happen in the early 90s. As a teen, I used to read "Smash Hits" and she got more coverage than Madonna and Kylie combined, even though her chart success was relatively marginal, even in the UK. Every fucking issue had something about her: "Dannii goes shopping for groceries!", "Dannii gets lost in New York!", "Dannii hates fruit yoghurt!"... She did have one (sort of) brush with greatness, "Neon Nights", but that's about it. She's always been super thirsty with relatively little to show for.

by Anonymousreply 57March 21, 2023 4:38 AM

To be fair, Dannii did genuinely excel as a judge on UK X Factor, back when that was an unimaginably huge show. People in the UK loved her and for the first time she became legitimately super famous and popular in the UK in her own right. Unfortunately that career pathway ended for her when the show's producer and undisputed star Simon Cowell admitted he was fucking her; an accusation that Sharon Osbourne had first angrily made years earlier. Dannii was so pissed at Cowell she never spoke to him again and has refused his work offers. She feels he ruined her image by making her TV success look like a cheap casting couch job.

by Anonymousreply 58March 21, 2023 4:45 AM

No matter what Danni did look like as a teenager, she looks fucking great now. All of those ugly teenagers who booed her will be even uglier and probably weigh 200 pounds these days. And let’s not even think about what those people at GAY look like these days…

Kylie is one of the most genuine nicest and genuine celebs you'll ever meet like Dolly Parton, Keanu Reeves and Yungblud.

I've heard Dannii can be a bit of a nasty bitch to fans and people in general sometimes. Kylie and Dannii have a brother named Brendan who works as a TV producer.

Not much as known about him as he lives a very private life but he is either a silent partner or involved some capacity or other in Kylie's media/production company KayDeeBee LTD. (named after all three siblings).

R58 Simon Cowell was a complete cunt to say that. Sharon Osbourne was I’m guessing jealous of Danni, she was younger, much better looking and the only person on the panel who had actual experience of being a pop star.

But karma will always come back to kick you in the cunt. I would love to see a picture of Simon, Sharon and Danni together today. Simon and Sharon look like burns victims whilst Danni has had fantastic work done.

Sharon Osbourne was very popular here in the UK for a few years, always on the cover of a magazine or on TV. I'm very glad people either lost interest or saw through her as she seems like a nasty old scold who thinks she's a cut above, and she's got about as much right to judge singers as Cheryl "autotune" Cole.

I like Kylie. She's refreshing. Unlike many American (looking at you Madonna) and British pop stars, she doesn't seem to take herself too seriously. She has a sense of humor about herself. She embraces camp and irony with gusto. Kylie also loves other pop stars and isn't the type to have beefs. She posts praise towards Madonna, Britney, Janet, Rihanna, Gaga and Beyoncé for inspiring her.

Dannii spells her name in a stupid fashion. She came up with it as a teenager and it shows.

With regard to Kylie cringing over Dannii's antics, that would probably include the Julian McMahon era where as a couple, they gave interviews to Frau trash mag Woman's Day every single week - even doing interviews and photo shoots on their honeymoon. When they split, at least one of them would give an interview to WD or rival trash mag New Idea every single week, responding to each other'sinterviews and statements. It was so undignified. And no other magazines were interested in either of them until Dannii did Australian Playboy. She claimed it was because she was broke, but their father was an accountant and oversaw the management of all the showbiz earnings. She couldn't get a loan from Kylie?

by Anonymousreply 71March 21, 2023 10:55 PM

People forget that Dannii did a series of really tacky topless calendars in the 90s, well after Playboy. After she'd had her implants done. Even Dannii has forgotten it because it's been expunged from her story and she just says she was forced to do Playboy by Julian's spending.
