Is she big in the U.S.? I quite frankly have rarely hear about her.
Only among the gays
What R1 said. Not sure why, but she's never quite been as popular here - several hits, yes, but not to the level she's loved elsewhere.
Awful little toad dressed in glitter.
COLLECTIVE HUGE GAY GASP at R4's BLASPHEMY!!!!!
Damn, was her Locomotion cover awful, Little Eva might as well have been Aretha in comparison.
She's had 2 Top 10 US hits, the terrible Locomotion, and "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" in 2001. 3 other songs were marginal Top 40 hits, none since 2001. That's plenty enough for a Britney-level "talent."
I'm not a Kylie fan but "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" was a great song. It would have been great no matter who sang it.
I liked "2 Hearts" too.
Most of the other typical-thumpy-disco-diva stuff, I can do without.
For about a decade there, her records weren't even released in the U.S.
She's still desperately trying to break into the US market. She even lowered herself to go on Fashion Police, where she dissed Madonna.

Eh, not really. If she was that desparate, she would tour here more often. She did two dozen U.S. dates combined in 2009 and 2011. That's it, for her entire career.
It's like Robbie Williams. She does well enough elsewhere, it's not worth the time/effort to try and break the U.S., especially when it doesn't seem too interested.
She's obviously nothing. Threads about me are about 7 times longer.
25 years of hits in UK and many other countries, with no scandal only a rep for being a hardworking pro.
Not really a "Britnany" level star. Much, much more. (Britnany still around in 25 years?!?!?! Not.) Sure she would like to break in the US, but her career is better than most without it.
I liked "I Should Be So Lucky" when it came out. And she seems very charming and unpretentious.
Kylie has admitted in the past that breaking the US market is not a big priority for her. It's probably the only country where she can walk around unrecognized, save for Los Angeles and New York where the paps are EVERYWHERE. Besides, she's been in the biz 25 years, and that's a great run for a pop dance star.
You got your nerve, just because she's fat doesn't make her a bad person. Maybe she just likes food.

They always say that after they've tried and failed. Any singer who says breaking the US market isn't important is full of shit. It's THE biggest music market.
BTW, Kylie hasn't had a number one song in the UK in 10 years.
All I ever think of is that hideous Locomotion song (and video) from the 80's.
I always enjoy seeing her on Fashion Police and/or WWHL. She seems like a nice, grounded person.
Roc Nation signed her several months ago, so it looks like Kylie is going to attempt it yet again. Guess Jay -Z is going to force her voice onto some ghetto blaster "music".
I heard she is huge in Cesky Krumlov.
She's pretty big here in Europe. I've always wondered why Americans don't really care for her. Anastacia is an even stranger case-she's actually an American, but is much more popular in Europe than in her home country.

Lets face it - Kylie isn't all that talented and makes mindless pop music; we already have enough "singers" like her over in the US. Anastacia on the other hand I totally agree with that it's strange why she's not popular over her. She's one of the best singers out there. However, even she isn't all that popular in Europe anymore - her recent albums and singles have all flopped.

She needs to give that pipe dream up - you aren't going to break the US music market at 45 years old.
