Seven amazing facts about Aussie pop icon Kylie Minogue

Kylie-2014

It was Kylie Minogues birthday this week (28 May) and to celebrate we thought we’d take a look back at her amazing career and discovered some things that you may or may not have known about the pop superstar.

It makes sense that Kylie’s name is Aussie slang for “boomerang” – she’s the pop icon who keeps coming back. She’s survived critical scorn, changes in musical tastes and a decade-long tabloid fixation with her bum to become one of our biggest pop stars and most enduring sex symbols.  

  1. Kylie acted in various TV shows including Henderson Kids, Fame and Neighbours.
  2. Kylie’s movie credits include The Deliquents, Street Fighter and Sample People.
  3. Kylie’s pop career began by accident. She performed a version of sixties hit ‘The Loco-Motion’ at a benefit concert for an Aussie sports team, and was promptly signed to Mushroom Records. Her subsequent recording of the song became the best-selling single of the eighties in Australia.
  4. Kylie’s first 13 singles stormed straight into the UK top ten. That’s a chart record that ABBA, The Beatles, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Oasis and David Bowie were unable to match.
  5. Kylie has had number one hits in the 80’s 90’s and 00’s.
  6.  She was part of the Sydney 2000 Olympics Opening Ceremony.
  7. Kylie’s signature tune ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ reached number one in 40 countries, ended her 13-year absence from the US top ten and became the third most popular song in the world in 2001.
