Kylie Minogue Covers 'BlackBook' June/July 2010

Kylie Minogue Covers 'BlackBook' June/July 2010

Kylie Minogue models a leotard with sexy cutouts in this shot for BlackBook magazine’s June/July issue.

Here’s what the 42-year-old entertainer had to share with editor Nick Haramis for the “Smart” issue:

On the beginning of her career: “I signed up for [unemployment] when I graduated, but I never got a check because I started working on Neighbours. Fame wasn’t the driving force, but I can’t say I didn’t aspire to it at all. I used to daydream as a kid that my neighbor was a record producer and that he would hear me singing.”

On the day before announcing her breast cancer diagnosis: “It was the first time I’d felt such absolute terror. We stopped at a café that day. I remember looking at everyone around me, watching how normal they all seemed, and thinking, These people don’t know now, but they will tomorrow.”

On her last album, X: “That album had some great moments on it, but, as a whole, it wasn’t cohesive. I think people wanted to hear something with more gravitas considering what I’d just been through, but the most personal songs I’d written, like ‘Ruffle My Feathers,’ didn’t end up on the album. That one was about cancer: How could you do this to me? How could you ruffle my feathers? It’s symbolic, but also, very literally, cancer put an end to my Showgirl tour.”

On her father’s advice: “My dad has always said since the very beginning, ‘Kylie, you know you can say no to any of this. You can walk away from the whole thing if you want.’ But I’m a people-pleaser. ‘No’ doesn’t come naturally to me.”

    WOW i read the interview! just WOW !! what a woman!!
    i loved this part: “But the comparison that gets thrown about most often is between Minogue and Madonna, and not without reason. Madonna has her controversial Sex book, and Minogue has Kylie, an equally envelope-pushing collection of photos—some topless—and an illustration of her with a *****; Madonna has Truth or Dare, a tour documentary, and Minogue has White Diamond: A Personal Portrait of Kylie Minogue; Madonna has a much-younger boyfriend, Brazilian model Jesus Luz, and Minogue has 32-year-old Velencoso. “But it’s a bit of a lazy comparison now,” she says. “If someone were to look at it more closely, they’d see that I have a lot of influences that precede Madonna.” She adds, “We have friends in common. She’ll pass me a message and I’ll pass a message back to her. I’m sure we’ll meet one day and have a good laugh.”

    I also loved this part : “I did all of the dishes from last night, but I refused to wash anything without gloves,” she says, which seems reasonable when one considers that she is among the world’s richest female performers, her net worth estimated last year at $71.25 million. “That was my only diva request. So I went to the store and bought a pair.”
    hahahhahah she is so down to earth!! ;-)

    In The Know Says:

    Darling K owns the House of Europe which unlike the US is over a billion consumers strong. She can go out at any time and sell out multiple arena nights in every major city in Europe. She’s one of a kind, and truly one that no longer needs a label.

    She has had more work done than Joan Rivers.

    CanadaGirl Says:

    I’m glad she’s doing well. Kylie seems sincerely sweet and kind. I read that she is worried that she’ll never be able to have a baby because she’s on cancer meds still. Poor dear. I hope she’s able to fulfill that wish as she seems she’d make a nice mum.

    This was a actually superb post. In theory I’d like to write like this also – getting time and true work to create a great piece of writing… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get some thing accomplished.
