Two years ago this coming week, Kylie Minogue‘s “All The Lovers” music video premiered. It was the lead single off her 11th album Aphrodite, and the pressure was on to ensure that pop’s reigning princess could deliver a smash hit. (She could.) But with new single and video “Timebomb” — released simply to commemorate Kylie’s 25th year in the music business (and her birthday on Monday) — Minogue shrugs the weight off her shoulders and simply has a great time.
The Christian Larson-directed video for “Timebomb” comes hours after the song leaked. (It’s now available on iTunes worldwide.) The clip, which shows the flawless blonde pop minx running and shaking her booty through London, plays in parts like an homage to both Madonna‘s “Ray Of Light” vid and Kylie’s own “Come Into My World”. In other words, we love it. Welcome back, Kylie — and happy birthday.
