Do You Feel The Love?
On the June 30 episode of The Voice Australia, coach Kylie Minogue did double duty by performing her latest Kiss Me Once single “Sexy Love” (along with Fever classic “Love At First Sight”). Wearing a little black dress, Kylie strutted across the stage with a troupe of backup dancers while her Voice cohorts Ricky Martin and will.i.am hopped up out of their red chairs and danced.

The Aussie pop queen also announced that her Kiss Me Once Tour will be hitting her home country in March 2015. (Catch the full list of Australian dates here.) “I’ve absolutely loved being back in Australia and now I’m even more excited to announce the dates for my Australian Kiss Me Once Tour 2015,” Minogue said in a statement. “Bringing my show back home is always an amazing feeling so I can’t wait. Get your dancing shoes on!” More »

Kylie Minogue’s “Waiting 4 The Sun” Surfaces Online: Listen To The Unused ‘Kiss Me Once’ Demo

Kylie Minogue recorded dozens of songs for Kiss Me Once. Unfortunately, some of the most appealing ones didn’t make the album — at least if sublime rejects “Golden Boy” and “Crystallize” are any indication. Adding weight to the suspicion that someone got the tracklist very, very wrong is the arrival of an extremely promising demo called “Waiting 4 The Sun”.

Allegedly produced by Alter Ego (it first appeared on his SoundCloud), Australian DJ Tommy Trash and The Runners, “Waiting 4 The Sun” is a sweeping synth-ballad that finds the iconic diva in a hopeful mood. “I’ll be standing by your side, I’ll be here waiting for the sun to rise,” she declares before a massive electronic breakdown. It sounds unfinished but still packs an epic punch. Listen to Kylie’s latest lost gem after the jump. More »

Kylie Minogue To Star In Action Movie ‘San Andreas 3D’ With Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Kylie Minogue is returning to the big screen! The pop icon, who recently hinted that “Sexy Love” will be the third single from new LP Kiss Me Once, has signed on for a starring role opposite Dwayne Johnson in a new disaster movie about a massive earthquake called San Adreas 3D. It will be directed by Brad Peyton and filmed on the Gold Coast in Australia.

This won’t be the first time Kylie has appeared in a special effects-laden blockbuster. Who will ever forget her turn as a kickboxing action hero in Jean-Claude Van Damme‘s 1994 flop Street Fighter (I legit love that movie) or her iconic role as Dr. Petra Von Kant — say it out loud — in Pauly Shore comedy Bio-Dome. While those didn’t fare so well at the box office, she did have a memorable cameo in Baz Luhrmann‘s Moulin Rouge! and won rave reviews for her part in the award-winning Holy Motors. More »

Austin Mahone Thinks It’s Obnoxious To Compare Him To Justin Bieber: Morning Mix

Did You Hear?

:: Austin Mahone thinks it’s obnoxious to compare him to Justin Bieber. “You don’t know me,” he said in a recent interview. “You don’t know my music. You’re just making assumptions.” Fighting words! [MTV]

:: A man and a woman have been arrested for breaking into Miley Cyrus‘ home and stealing her car and jewelry. Police recognized them from security footage while they were taking a stroll in North Hollywood. [TMZ]

:: Kylie Minogue fans will, no doubt, be able to recite Jazzi P‘s rap on ’90s classic “Shocked” by heart. The femcee seemingly fell off the face of the earth but she has resurfaced as a contestant on Big Brother UK. Time for a comeback? [Digital Spy]

:: Some people have more money than sense. A replica of Kanye West‘s mustard stained polo short is now selling for the not-so-bargain price of $400. And people are actually buying it. Go figure. [Daily Mail]

Kylie Minogue, Tegan And Sara To Appear At Logo TV’s ‘Trailblazers’ Special

Logo TV will honor those who made historic strides for LGBT equality in a new one-hour special, Trailblazers.

Guests include Kylie Minogue, Tegan and Sara, Ariana Grande, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, and Against Me!‘s Laura Jane Grace, who announced her transition to a woman in a 2012 Rolling Stone feature story. A Great Big World of “Say Something” fame will perform, though other acts will soon be announced.

Trailblazers airs June 26 at 9 p.m. EST, the date being a nod to the Stonewall Riots and one-year anniversary of DOMA being overruled. Among others, the debut special will focus Jason Collins, who became the first publicly gay athlete in a major U.S. sport when he came out to Sports Illustrated in 2013, and the cast of Netflix series Orange Is the New Black, including TIME cover star Laverne Cox.

Kylie Minogue’s “Crystallize”: Watch The Video For The Cancer Charity Single

Kylie Minogue Crystallize music video
Shiny!
You won’t find Kylie Minogue‘s new song “Crystallize” on her recently-released album Kiss Me Once, but you will see all the names of those who donated to One Note For Cancer at the end of the clip. The track is a tie-in with the cancer charity, and Kylie got fans involved by having them bid on eBay for one of all 4408 notes contained in “Crystallize.” The final three minutes of the video show the generous bidders’ names scrolling by.

In the first bit of the visual, however, we see not one diva, but two, as Kylie appears as a guardian pop angel of sorts, watching over a young girl who twirls around her bedroom doing the old hairbrush/microphone schtick. It’s of course a far more toned-down video than Kylie’s recent sensual clips for  “Into The Blue” and “Sexercize.” More »

Kylie Minogue And Lily Allen Hung Out At The Cannes Film Festival

Kylie Minogue and Lily Allen are both on the promo trail for new LPs (Kiss Me Once and Sheezus, respectively). The quest for headlines brought the ladies to the Cannes film festival, where they are doing interviews, performing — at least in the “I Was Gonna Cancel” diva’s case — and generally hanging out and being fabulous.

The pop sirens posed for a happy snap at an event, which Lily later shared on her Instagram. The caption had lots of love hearts, so they obviously got along famously. They really should do a track together. Perhaps the Brit can talk/rap on Kylie’s next single? She would be awesome on “Les Sex”. See their glamorous party pic after the jump. More »

Whatcha Say: Solange, Beyonce and Mariah Carey Got Our Readers Talking

It’s Friday, Idolator readers! And what an unexpected week in pop it was, right Solange‘s shocking assault of Jay Z in an elevator with Bey made the Internet explode on Monday, followed by the memes and Twitter detective work by the BeyHive. (And then the family made a statement and now everything is back to normal. Right?!)

But it wasn’t all about elevators and high kicks: King of Pop himself Michael Jackson returned with his all-around great posthumous record Xscape, Glee wrapped up for the season and Danity Kane made a thirst-quenching return with their new single, “Lemonade.” Plus, Sheezus herself Lily Allen dropped by the Idolator studio and made her first TV performance in America in ages. (Also, have you entered to win a copy of Sheezus yet?)

As always, you guys had plenty to say. Check out the week’s best comments below! More »

Kylie Minogue’s “I Was Gonna Cancel” Video Is Literally Pedestrian: Watch

kylie-minogue-cancel
Kylie In A Crowd
Kylie Minogue has delivered some of the most memorable and innovative videos in the history of popular music but “I Was Gonna Cancel” is not one of them. The flawless diva simply stands in a bustling crowd of people and makes jerky hand movements while looking generally adorable. There is, however, a thoughtful explanation for the seemingly bizarre concept.

“This video is an abstract look at pedestrian life and how we’re all just trying to get through and rise above everyday challenges,” Kylie explains. “Although the song talks about a real life event that happened the day I recorded the song with Pharrell, the video has a more conceptual approach and I love how surreal it looks.” Fair enough. Watch up top. More »

Kylie Minogue Teases Her Bustling “I Was Gonna Cancel” Video: Watch

A thirty second preview of Kylie Minogue‘s “I Was Gonna Cancel” video surfaced online a couple of days ago and the footage has finally found its way to YouTube. The snippet finds the Australian pop icon singing the song in the middle of a bustling crowd. She previously used the same concept for a much-maligned live performance at the Logies.

There’s nothing fancy about the set-up but the simplicity and retro styling evoke iconic Fever-era visuals like “Come Into My World” and “Love At First Sight”, which is a very good thing. “I Was Gonna Cancel” remains something of a curiosity. The song is cute enough but it’s hard to imagine it being picked as a single without the Pharrell connection. (He produced it). Watch the preview after the jump. More »
