Kylie Minogue Quotes
"I never say never about a lot of things. Whatever you want, then more power to you. If someone feels they have to live up to a certain image, then I can kind of understand that pressure because I'm considered to be one of those images, and I know how unreal they are."
"People see me as Kylie the singer. It would be a dream for me to be taken seriously as an actress."
"I don't have to try to be a sex bomb, I am one!"
"I'm totally shattered. Everything has been so crazy. I've been trying to get my act together, but I am so exhausted I can barely string a sentence together. Making this album has really taken its toll." (on recording the Fever album).
"When I was eight, my pals and I went up to my bedroom, put on our party frocks and mimed to ABBA records using broom handles as microphones."
"I especially enjoy the period with 'Shocked', 'What Do I Have To Do' and 'Better The Devil You Know', so maybe something from there." (when asked what earlier hits she would re-release if given the oppurtunity)
"That's always a difficult question. Still being here!!! The point of my job is to entertain and make it look easy, so I guess it's the parts you don't often see which make me feel proud. All the behind the scenes work, the fears and insecurities I have to face and overcome to improve myself as a person and performer, all of the people who believe in me and encourage me. As you can see the list starts to go on and on. My sense of achievement is a study in motion and there's much I wish to accomplish in the future, professional and personal." (on her biggest achievement; 2004)
"Since my first hit, I can't believe how quickly time has passed. This collection is very dear to me and holds a lifetime of memories. There is nothing like time to give you a sense of perspective and I hope the listener gets as much enjoyment out of these tracks as I do. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to experiment throughout the years and that my fans have embraced the need in me to try new approaches. I am just as excited about the new tracks featured here as I am about all the others on the record. At this point in my career, I am happy to celebrate the past and look forward to the future." (on her 2004 greatest hits compilation Ultimate Kylie)
"I nearly killed myself in rehearsals, but the outcome is classy, I hope. It's a lot different from any other videos I've done before. I really wanted to do some ballet in my next video and luckily I've been able to. I normally have three or four hours to practise the choreography for my clips, but this time I had four days to get it right." (on her music video Chocolate)
"I'm so happy that my costumes have found a home here in Melbourne, my home town, where I know they will be cared for and preserved. Its just such an honour that the Performing Arts Collection wanted it all. What I imagine people will want to see is the wear and tear, the ingrained make-up after fifty shows, where the audio-pack rubs these are things that for me, bring costumes to life."
I am so excited to be performing once again at GAY. There's an atmosphere there that is unlike anywhere else. Last time I performed there they had a huge clock counting down the minutes until the show and by the time I came on the crowd was at fever pitch. It's a special venue for me and I have some amazing memories of gigs gone by. So many of the audience go to great lengths to make special outfits and they know the lyrics to the songs better than I do.
Cruelty to children is an everyday occurrence, which must be stopped. The work undertaken by the NSPCC is essential and I fully support its mission to end child cruelty. I support its vision of a society in which all children are loved and valued. The levels of abuse in this country are shocking. Without charities like the NSPCC, they would be worse. Together, we hope to improve the lives of children within the UK.
The band have been rehearsing for the last five weeks, the dancers for the just over three weeks, and me whenever I could, so I'm the last bit! It has been pretty intense. I'm trying to look really calm but it has been an intense few weeks leading up to today! Not very oldies though; we are stepping marginally back in time! It's always difficult choosing - for a start choosing which new songs to perform from the album and then what's gonna work with the old ones. But, yeah, there's a couple of surprises in store and also some real trainspotter surprises too. (on her Money Can't Buy show)
I have been in L.A. for a week and the town has been full of Grammy fever, to actually be a recipient is incredibly special. I am thrilled and cannot wait to bring it home. (on winning a Grammy)
