Are Kylie Minogue’s PWL Albums Being Re-Released? We Could Be So Lucky!

Kylie Minogue‘s first four albums — released on PWL Records between 1988 and 1991 — are being re-released. I think. There’s no official announcement (yet) but a seemingly official YouTube video alludes to their arrival on August 15. That date is supported by a countdown on the iconic British label’s website. Are you ready to step back in time?

With little inventions like eBay and iTunes, the pop icon’s early work is actually pretty easy to get ahold of. So hopefully the re-releases of Kylie, Enjoy Yourself, Rhythm Of Love and Let’s Get To It are digitally remastered and have previously unreleased material, which is unlikely given how ruthless SAW were about using everything they produced. See the video announcement after the jump. More »

Kylie Minogue’s Commonwealth Games Performance Crashed By Turnt Steeplechase Runner: Watch Her Flawless Seven-Song Set

Kylie Minogue brought some much needed glamor (sorry, Lulu) to the Commonwealth Games’ closing ceremony on Sunday night (August 3) in Glasgow, Scotland. The pop icon put on a spectacular show complete with extravagant costumes, shirtless male dancers, a kooky setlist and an unexpected cameo from Australian steeplechase runner Genevieve LaCaze, who crashed the stage and danced along before being escorted from the venue.

The flawless 46-year-old kicked off the performance with 2000 hit “Spinning Around” before belting out Kiss Me Once lead single “Into The Blue”, “Love At First Sight”, “All The Lovers” and “Locomotion”. She then performed a solo version of Enrique Iglesias duet “Beautiful” — adding weight to rumors that it will be released as her next single — and closed (almost inevitably) with “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”. Watch the GQ cover girl‘s full seven-song set after the jump. More »

Kylie Minogue Will Perform At The Commonwealth Games’ Closing Ceremony

Finally a sporting event Idolator readers can get behind that isn’t men’s diving. Kylie Minogue has been tapped to headline the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland on August 3. She will share the stage with local stars Lulu, Deacon Blue, Prides and Dougie MacLean in front of an expected 40,000+ spectators.

There’s no word on the pop icon’s setlist yet but expect to hear a bunch of old classics instead of Kiss Me Once cuts. Kylie famously sang “On A Night Like This” (and covered ABBA‘s “Dancing Queen”) at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, so it would be interesting to see a repeat performance. The closing ceremony will be televised live in 72 countries. Check your listings. More »

Kylie Minogue Shows Her Famous Butt On The Cover Of ‘GQ’ Italy, Poses Topless Inside: See The Sexy Pics

Kylie Minogue teased her eye-popping GQ Italy cover on Instagram yesterday (July 28) and set tongues wagging with her beautiful bikini body. The full image surfaced online today and it’s a real jaw-dropper. The flawless 46-year-old poses partially bottomless thanks to an extremely well-trained poodle. You can even see a bit of crack!

The camp and playful (and thus quintessentially Kylie) shoot was helmed by Steve Shaw and he does a great job of capturing the pop goddess in all her glory without being smutty. She even poses without her bikini top in one pic, exposing some heavenly side-boob. But she’s at the beach and it’s for a European men’s publication, so it’s pretty restrained when you think about it. See the saucy snaps after the jump. More »

Kylie Minogue Stuns In A Tiny Bikini On The Cover Of ‘GQ’ Italy: See The Sexy Snap

Kylie Minogue is aging in reverse. The gorgeous 46-year-old looks absolutely stunning on the cover of GQ Italy in a tiny bikini. What kind of Jennifer Lopez sorcery? “It’s summertime!!” is all the pop icon had to say about the sexy snap when she posted it on Instagram this afternoon (July 28) and there’s not much else to say but WOW.

The “Into The  Blue” diva recently wrapped up mentoring duties on The Voice Australia and can now return her focus to Kiss Me Once, which she will support with a world tour beginning August 22 in Ibiza, Spain. Cutfather-produced pop anthem “Sexy Love” was recently sent to radio down under but there’s still no word on the album’s next single internationally. Salivate over her GQ cover after the jump.

Kylie Minogue Gets Emotional In All-Encompassing ’60 Minutes’ Australia Interview: Watch

Kylie Minogue 60 Minutes Australia 2014
Kylie Lets It All Out
Kylie Minogue is both a beloved figure in the pop world and a national treasure in her home country of Australia. And while the Kiss Me Once singer has been back Down Under shooting her stint on The Voice, she took the time to sit down for a pretty captivating interview with 60 Minutes.

The chat covers all the bases of Kylie’s career — from her very first appearance on ’80s soap Neighbours up her coaching gig on The Voice — and doesn’t shy away from emotional topics like her early ’90s relationship with late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence (who Minogue says she had “many firsts” with) and the devastating breast cancer news she received nearly a decade ago.

The sitdown isn’t all fraught with emotion, however. For a bit of comic relief Kylie revisits her classic “Spinning Around” gold hotpants, which are now safely stored in Melbourne’s Cultural Arts Center…and must be handled with gloves. More »

Kylie Minogue Mashes Up “Sexy Love” & “Love At First Sight” On ‘The Voice’ Australia: Watch

Kylie Minogue Sexy Love The Voice Australia Love At First Sight
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 »
