Biography

Kylie Ann Minogue is the eldest of three children of the Australian couple of Ron and Carol Minogue. She grew up in the suburbs of Melbourne and never thought of a show-business career. At the age of ten, her parents took her to the TV studio, as her sister Danii was going for a casting. However, it was Kylie, not Danii, in whom the jury got interested. Nevertheless, the younger one (both played in serials) overshadowed the elder sister - until Kylie received her major role in a soap opera Neighbours in 1986. As a major Australian celebrity on the wave of the Neighbours' success, Minogue was invited to a charity concert in 1987 among other personalities. She sang Little Eva's The Locomotion and the record of that performance was given to the local Mushroom studio. As a result, the single became a nation-wide hit in the summer of 1987, while Kylie packed her things and moved to conquer London.

In London, nobody knew anything particular about Kylie's status and when she came to the agency, she had been sent to - Stock, Aitken and Waterman - they simply forgot about the starting artist. Stock, Aitken and Waterman worked with big names like Bananarama and Samantha Fox, so Minogue was not a priority to them. She had to wait at the door when her first English hit I Should Be So Lucky was written quickly. Soon Minogue became so popular around Europe that left the Neighbours in order to concentrate on her singing career. At that time, Kylie had relations with the INXS frontman Michael Hutchence, who stimulated her for personal growth as an artist. Under the influence of these ties, Hutchence even devoted the hit Suicide Blonde to Minogue. In 1990, Minogue decided to control her image and worked on the video to Better The Devil You Know from the album Rhythm Of Love independently from her agency. This video showed the singer as a sexual and mature woman, which contradicted to the promoted by Stock, Aitken and Waterman look of a next-door girl. In 1991, with the album Let's Go To It, featuring slow pop ballads, Kylie also insisted on her lyrical contribution to the songs. Therefore, she saw no better way than to leave the company for Deconstruction label.

Minogue's popularity faded during her work in Deconstruction, but working there she noticeably improved her style and produced a number of hit singles from the two albums - Kylie Minogue and Impossible Princess. All the singles had a bright sexual coloring and winding bits. The style varied from Europop to club-dance. In 1995, Minogue sang a thrilling duet Where The Wild Roses Grow with the celebrated Australian rocker Nick Cave. This step helped Kylie to position herself within a wider auditory. Deconstruction and Minogue parted ways and after contributing to the Nightlife album by Pet Shop Boys she subscribed to their label Parlophone in 1999. Next year Kylie released Light Years - an album, strongly influenced by the disco style of 70s. It featured a duet Kids with Robbie Williams and a dancing hit Spinning Round. In 2001, the follow-up Fever was ready with the electro pop bomb Can't Get You Out Of My Head, which undoubtedly won even the USA listeners. After the release of her next album, Body Language, in 2003, Kylie became a Grammy winner for the second time. The artist issued her second official hit collection Ultimate Kylie in November 2004 and launched her Showgirl - The Greatest Hits Tour. Unluckily, the performer was diagnosed breast cancer and broke off the tour. After 18 months of heavy treatment Kylie came back on the scene, publishing her own book for children, launching personal perfume Darling and releasing the tenth studio creation X which was followed by the record Showgirl Homecoming (2007). In 2007 Kylie released the compilation album titled Confide In Me: The Irresistible Kylie. In 2009 the album of remixes Boombox (The Remix Album 2000-2009) was issued. Kylie’s following long play entitled Aphrodite (2010) saw the light three years after the release of album X. The singer’s fans enjoyed the long-awaited record, which was preceded by its lead single All The Lovers, creating the right mood. Incredibly atmospheric Aphrodite peaked at the very top of the UK Chart, which proved both the highest level of Minogue’s performance skills and of the concept of the long play itself.
