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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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?

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.

Dannii looked great in her (mostly tasteful) Playboy shoot, with her nice slender body and natural perky breasts. Yet, she seemed to be a woman suffering an identity crisis.

I think she got a tiny nose refinement at the same time she got the huge rack, which did not suit her as featured in the All I Wanna Do video.

She saw how Kylie transformed from the girl next door into sex bomb and went for it. Kylie was involved in her indie music phase so less competition for Dannii.

Dannii is an exceptionally rare example of significant facial plastic surgery working strongly in someone's favor, rather than making them look like an uncanny freak.

She was cute. But despite all her vigorous dancing in videos she always struggled with her weight. I think when she finally got the weight under control, that made the biggest difference. Look at her Playboy shoot, it's the same face but more delicate. Then nose jobs, implants, and some really excellent facelifts.

Kylie is said to dislike Madonna on a personal level, after some disappointing private interactions. She would NEVER say anything about that publicly, because she is a class act.

Kylie probably cringes when she sees how Madonna acts in private towards the people around her. Going by Truth or Dare and Christopher's accounts, it wouldn't be nice. And we all cringe at how Madonna behaves in public.

Thanks, r120. Did she discuss it in her book? Someone linked it but I'm too put off by Dannii to read it. I saw a copy going for $2 in an op shop (Australian thrift or charity shop) yesterday and still passed. It would be something if she admitted to the overhaul, though. Not many do.

Dannii Minogue recently just released the 20th Anniversary Edition of Neon Nights. It's available in multiple formats.

My only complaints are that the music video DVD is only available in the basic CD re-release and not the box set which contains the album plus every single one of the Neon Nights remixes spread across an additional 6 CDs. Which means you'll have to buy both in order to get everything. -_-

That and the new artwork is ugly as sin. It literally looks like something that an amateur created within five minutes on Photoshop. I was hoping they'd keep the original artwork and have the artwork from the first deluxe edition (this is actually the 3rd one) as a slipcase.

What other Kylie songs should have been singles, and what shouldn't have been released?

If say Please Stay was too tame to promote Light Years

by Anonymousreply 155April 6, 2023 7:08 PM

Your Disco Needs You and Butterfly should have both been given an official worldwide single release. Instead YDNY was given a limited release in Germany which greatly hurt its chances of being a bigger hit and Butterfly was only a promo single in the US which made it a top 20 on the dance chart.

The problem whenever Kylie signs to a new record company is that in the beginning she is welcomed with fanfare and a lot of money and effort is put into her upcoming releases. Then several years after signing they don't know what to do with her and minimal time and money are put into promoting her work.

It happened towards her time with EMI/Parlophone/Capitol and it also happened when she signed with Roc Nation which was one of the few (and biggest) mistakes in her career.

Her Kiss Me Once album was a disaster. All of the good tracks weren't even on the album. The two EPs she released at the same time with Fernando Garibay were amazing.

Why she didn't chose him to produce the entire album instead of who she went with I'll never know. The tour aside from a few standout moments was a visual eyesore. You can tell at that point her then stylist William Baker (a backstabbing fame whore who used her) was running out of ideas.

He was probably bitching about her. She never got over Hutchence, even though he cheated on her and dumped her. She seems nicer than most stars, but a little stuck emotionally. The cancer occurred when she was relatively young and sounds like it cost her the chance to have children. Given how so many straight guys are about having bio-babies, putting her career first was probably a good thing, especially if most of her friends have kids. The whole surrogacy thing is common these days but not when she was in her thirties, early forties.

I remember when she was with Hutchence and talking openly to the press about having kids with him. And then he dumped her with sources close to him quoting him as saying he'd never marry her. He dumped her for a supermodel, then four years later he's with a woman who has three kids of her own and he fathers her fourth child. All in front of the whole world. That's gotta hurt.

He had the head injury in 1992. The making of the documentary Mystify: Michael Hutchence uncovered his full autopsy report which showed significant damage to large areas of his frontal lobe as a result of that accident. His habits before that included an addiction to casual sex and heavy drinking and drug-taking. Given his excessive use of ecstasy in the late 80s and early 90s, his brain would never have made it to old age intact, but that accident might as well have killed him then and there. He had a significant, untreated brain injury. He'd never even have BEEN with Paula if the accident hadn't occurred. She got him as damaged goods and didn't know about it. She'd probably still be alive if she did. Guilt played a big part in her life after his death, that's on record.
