KILEY MINOUGH – POP DIVA AUSTRALIA
An amazing and unique continent gives birth to no less colorful people. Australia gave the world of art a whole galaxy of movie stars (Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Paul Hogan) and musicians (Nick Cave, Natalie Imbrulyu, AC / DC, Bee Gees, Savage Garden). There is one performer among these celebrities with an incredibly radiant smile, whose work has been pleasing music lovers for many years. Her name is Kylie Minogue. She calls herself a pop veteran who will soon be retiring, but we know that this is just another aphorism of her, there can be no talk of creative rest.
Kylie (the Australian aborigines call this a boomerang) is the oldest of three children born to the family of Ronald and Carol Minogue. The girl was born in Melbourne on May 28, 1968. the singer Kylie Minougona grew up to be a rather shy child – she was not attracted to school activities, she did not want to participate in children’s theatrical performances, preferring choreography and music to them. Only once the future singer and actress could be persuaded to perform with other students in the production of “Cinderella”.
Kylie and her younger sister Danny got acquainted with the world of show business and made their first steps in it. At the same time, the parents of the girls were confident that a successful acting career awaited their youngest daughter. One day her mother took Danny to the screen tests, and Kylie was just taken for company. As a result, it was Kylie Minogue who got the role. Having passed film tests, at the age of 9 the girl made her debut on television. One of her first works were roles in the TV series “Skyways” and “The Sullivans”.
It all started with a movie …
After graduation, Kylie was offered a job in the soap opera “Neighbors”. This project brought the future celebrity not only a clear success, but also presented a meeting with Jason Donovan, the singer Kylie Minogue whom Minoog started a romance. After filming this series, Kylie became the youngest actress in Australia and received several creative awards and prizes.
The melodrama “Criminals” with the participation of Kylie Minogue caused discontent of critics, but at the same time became commercially successful. After that, the young actress took a pause in the work and returned to the screens only after 5 years in the action movie “Street Fighter” with the participation of Jean-Claude Van Damme. It is worth noting that this film did not add to Kylie’s popularity at all, quite the contrary. There were other tapes in her career, but still there were no landmark works in the cinematographic biography of this Australian. But the musical life of Kylie Minogue has developed much more successfully.
New turn Kylie Minogue
Over the years of creativity, the Australian singer has become known in many countries, leaving a mark in every direction of pop music. Kylie Minogue’s singing career began more than 30 years ago. In 1986, she was invited to participate in honoring the players in Melbourne. Then her performance singer Kylie Minogue impressed one of the Australian producers so much that he offered the girl to sign a contract. Kylie Minogue’s first single, Locomotion, was released the following year and became the best-selling single by the end of the music season. Such a successful start of a musical career forced Kylie to complete work in the TV series “Neighbors”.
The singer was invited to the British capital for collaboration with the famous trio of producers – Mike Stoke, Matt Aitken and Pete Waterman. True, at first the producers underestimated Kylie, forgetting about her arrival. They had to write the song “I Should Be So Lucky” on the go to somehow fix the situation. But it was she who became a real hit, and Minogue’s first album, Kylie, reached number one in the British charts and turned out to be the best-selling compilation of the year, which sold over 7 million copies. The largest sales were in Europe and Asia, but the United States had a less favorable reception for a rising star.
A series of successful albums
Three more Kylie Minogue albums followed one after another – “Enjoy Yourself”, “Rhythm Of Love” and “Let’s Get To It”, securing the success of the Australian singer in the music arena. Becoming a global figure, Kylie decided to change her stage image. At the very beginning of the 1990s, instead of a courtyard girl, a seductive beauty appeared in front of fans singer Kylie Minogue. Such changes only added to the popularity of Minogue. By this period, her repertoire already had more than 30 compositions.
She became a regular guest of the tabloid pages that printed the details of her novel with INXS singer Mike Hutchins. And in 1992, the public’s attention was attracted by the collection of its hits “The Greatest Hits”. This album managed to become the leader of the British charts. Soon Kylie signed a contract with the record label Deconstruction Records and released the next solo album “Kylie Minogue”. His global sales reached 2.5 million copies, and the single “Confide in Me” lasted five weeks in the first place of the Australian charts.
