KYLIE MINOGUE Gives the Gays What They Want

Kylie's not messing around. And she's not being remotely subtle. Her new album, apparently titled 'DISCO' is due out later this year. The first single, 'Say Something' is out THIS Thursday. The country pop excursion on her last album, Golden, was fun, but I'm so happy to see her returning to all-out, unapolgetic, campy disco sheen.

I think we saw a bit of "Disco Kylie" on her last tour for "Golden". I went to see it at the O2 and while the country-tinged songs from "Golden" were good live, the "disco" section with songs like "New York City" and "Raining Glitter" got the best response from the audience.

I've seen some discourse about the album cover and that it looks off, cheap. But, really, anyone with knowledge of popstars knows that Kylie is in on the joke. She's always been SLIGHTLY more aware than we think that her brand has consistently been "the somewhat watered down imagery that Madonna already did" She's had some good album covers, like the 1994 album and Impossible Princess, which is gorgeous.

Kylie is huge in Europe and around the world with fans into dance music. For instance she’s been popular in Japan since the late ‘80s in Japan when she was more bubblegum pop. I was introduced to Kylie’s music by my late brother who worked for top nightclubs for over 20 years up and down the west coast. She’s associated with dance music and it’s what she does best. Her voice is quite good and way better than Madonna’s.

by Anonymousreply 3007/21/2020

There's a lot more to Kylie and why she's so popular. She was in Neighbours which was an Australian soap that (somehow) managed to be the biggest hit in the UK. She could do nothing wrong. She was Madonna levels of huge.

She went through the SAW stage with massive success but then decided to change direction. This got her the critical acclaim she'd been looking for and her comeback was huge. She's been wholly loved in the UK and everywhere else since, not just by the gays. It's kind of hard to describe.

With Kylie you know you're getting someone who can act, sing, dance and her music will be high quality even if it's her being pop, indie or disco. Plus she always comes across as a really nice woman. Even people who don't like her music like Kylie.

UGH. Girls, girls. Can't we just have one pop diva thread in which we celebrate the artist without the weirdly personal need to take down other artists? And why not an artist who just radiates joy and lightheartedness like Kylie. While she takes her work very seriously, she doesn't take herself too seriously.

It's not a pie, there aren't a limited amount of slices. You can like more than one woman in music.... it's okay.

R26 - I'm not the biggest Dua Lipa fan, but there's no denying she's one of the most successful artists of the moment. Whether she will endure the way Kylie has remains to be seen. That said, I THINK R24 was actually in agreement with you and was probably referring to the fact that Dua is a known Kylie stan and when asked who her dream collaborator is has often said Kylie. I think R24 was saying that Dua "gets it" not that Dua is more important than Kylie.

Kylie, Madonna and Janet are all Queens of pop for me and there’s no doubt that they’ve all inspired each other and stolen from each other but it’s very clear that the whole confessions era was heavily inspired by Kylie and her fever record.

Madge was living in London and Kylie was tha Queen and that record was fucking everywhere and you could even tell by Madge’s reinvention for confessions as a delicate soft pale disco diva that she was channeling Kylie including her dance moves which were taken from kylie’s videos for fever.

And it goes back way further than that. Kylie's What Do I Have to Do in 1991, the first video where she reinvented herself as a love goddess. She takes notes visually from Bardot, Ann-Margret, Jane Fonda, Olivia Newton-John but especially from Madonna. The remix even had a makeover in the Shep Pettibone style that Madonna made hot.

Madonna came back next year with the Deeper and Deeper, a song that was structured like a Kylie Eurobeat song and even had the signature Stock Aitkin Waterman midi keyboards playing all over it.

The day of the last ever G-A-Y it was announced there'd be a very special surprise guest. Gay London went wild on social media trying to guess who it was and the consensus eventually settled on Kylie. You could almost taste the excitement.

The night was really enjoyable, if extremely sweaty with thousands of over-excited drunk and drugged up gays all piled in to celebrate this special night. The acts were pretty good (Mika, Sophie Ellis-Bextor etc) and then it became clear the very special surprise guest was coming on. People were so overwhelmed they were in tears and the place was going wild.

She was brought out behind a sheet and the place went even wilder. Then the sheet was dropped. It was Dannii Minogue. She was booed off the stage.

Kylie's lack of success in America was because of a combination of factors, some of it was intentional. She'd had a big early success there and her producers were geniuses who had already made inroads into the US charts via Bananarama, Rick Astley, and Donna Summer to name but a few. A few things they crafted for the American market. They had plans but it got pushed aside, perhaps because she had no US citizenship and her commitments in the UK were HUGE.

Kylie's UK fame and popularity was at Princess Diana level in 1988. That's no exaggeration, word for word, Kylie's name in the UK media in 1988/89 was second only to Di. Her stunning success took them all by surprise and America was kind of forgotten as a potential market for her.

While she had number one songs around the world, she'd go into a dress shop or restaurant in the US and people would ask if she worked there. Kylie did not mind. She had friends and respect from people who worked in the industry. The fashion people all knew who she was. She enjoyed her visits where she could go about her business while not being very well known.

by Anonymousreply 8007/22/2020

I don't think that Kylie being at a teenyboppers age in comparison to Madonna would have stopped Madge from guarding her territory fiercely. Even when Kylie was cute she was still a lot raunchier than Tiffany, Martika and Debbie Gibson. Kylie would have needed to change her image and sound to fit into the US. She would have needed to record some R&B type songs and that might have jeopardised her European sales as an up-and-coming disco queen. She did record several US-style tracks with Stock Aitkin Waterman, one was a duet ballad with US soul singer Keith Washington. It kind of works but...

America didn’t have the soap opera so they didn’t care about her & jason donovan. The saw sound was mostly rick astley & some bananarama here . They tried to keep the hits going after locomotion. It didn’t work. She had a lot of ‘hits’ in the gay clubs- but they were disco mixes. Now, if she tours here, it’s in the gay friendly big cities. So why bother?

Yes, both of those North American tours were so much fun. She was playing venues much smaller than she does in Europe and Australia. Even though the crowds were half the size of her 'regular' tours, they were REALLY passionate fans -- some of whom had been waiting literally decades to see her so the atmosphere was electric. And she was so great -- like someone upthread said -- she takes her craft seriously, but doesn't take herself seriously. She can somehow simultaneously embrace high camp and high concept -- sometimes in the same song. I remember going to her first N. American tour with a straight friend. It was basically thousands of homosexuals and hundreds of women and a handful of straight men whose GF's had convinced them to join them.

Some crazy obsessive fan (and god bless him for it) created a "DVD" of the tour by mashing up several amateur videos from the performance with HQ soundboard recordings from the tour. It was crazy how much spectacle she packed into those theatres and small arenas.

For those who weren't listening. Kylie was just interviewed on BBC radio and premiered the song. She was, of course, sweet and effusive. She said the video was a "galactic" experience and would be out in a week or two. It's directed by Sophie Mueller. She said the single 'Say Something' was written last year, but they chose it as the lead single because it ended up feeling very appropriate for the time we're in. And she's right, the lyrics feel like they were written about this time. It's wonderful. A mid-tempo slice of dreamy disco funk. It's really well produced, too.

The thing I love about Kylie is she makes fun music. Does it always hit the mark? No but A for effort. But she’s in on the joke. She seems to really appreciate her fans.

R127 what joke is she in on? There’s no joke. She mostly hits the mark compared to many artists. Except for that country mess album which I’m sure some people liked. Aphrodite the whole album was incredible. Every other album has at least 3-5 solid songs.

"Even when Kylie was cute she was still a lot raunchier than Tiffany, Martika and Debbie Gibson"

Don't forget Kylie dated INXS's Michael Hutchence for two years. She never talked about it until the doco Mystify, where she spoke at length, and it was obviously a meaningful relationship for both of them, however improbable. It was a strangely edgy thing for him to do, because at the time she was patronisingly known in Australia as The Singing Budgie and he was the height of cool, but apparently he revelled in introducing her to the world, of which she was still quite innocent. Not just sex, but travel and art and all that. He was like a sexed-up version of The Baron in Sabrina.

The new song -- "Say Something" -- doesn't sound very "disco." It's just a pop song. I hope it is not representative of the rest of the CD.

by Anonymousreply 14307/23/2020

With 16 tracks, I'm guessing there will plenty of full on dance-dance-dance disco throughout the album. There are definite 70s and early 80s disco/funk/synth-dance references throughout the song, but, yes, I'd agree it's certainly not capital 'D' disco. I will say, it's remarkably fresh sounding. It manages to capture those influences while still sounding very 'now' and also feeling very Kylie. It doesn't feel like she's inauthentically trend-chasing (as, for example, some of her early/mid 2000s R&B attempts sounded)

R144, I am very underwhelmed by the single and I am a Kylie fan. She is usually straightforward and I would have imagined if she were audacious enough to title her project "Disco" and publicize that title before releasing the music that the single would speak for itself. Almost any track from "Aphrodite" is more disco than "Say Something."

The new Jessie Ware CD is really good -- and very disco -- so expectations for Kylie are not just being set by her prior work. "Golden" was awful so she really needs to come hard with "Disco."

This may sound a bit strange, but I respect that she never had children or married, because she realised that her lifestyle and her shaky health history (physical and mental) would make her a less able mother.

She has openly told the press that while she has occasional days of longing for a child, for the most part she is happy with her decision not to give birth and will not be pressured over it - an important message for so many women to hear. Similarly she says that she “never dreamed of walking up the aisle” and wanted instead to become independent and build a career as a single women on her terms, which is laudable.

It’s mature empathetic decision-making that so many people lack.

It's clear they're releasing this first with months to go as it was probably in some agreement with the label and producers that this was going to be the first single because, I agree, it seems a little to the left of what the visual language is emitting.

I LOVE Kylie. LOVE her. Like flippin adore her. I'm a stan. I'm also pretty clear-eyed. I think there's about much chance of Kylie "cracking America" in 2020 as there is Donald Trump winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Kylie has a very passionate, dedicated and small fan-base in the US made up of 95% homosexuals, 4% women and 1% closeted men. She will probably get more #1s on the Billboard dance charts as she has in the recent past, but she barely cracks the top 40 in singles in the UK anymore -- her strongest market, by far. It's why BMG very smartly focuses on the album strategy, rather than the singles. It's how they got her two back-to-back #1 albums in the UK with Golden and the greatest hits album from last year. It's VERY challenging for "legacy" artists to achieve chart success these days due to the overwhelming dominance of streaming.

Would I be overjoyed if Kylie, against all odds, somehow scores some massive breakout hit from this album on either side of the Atlantic? Of course. I'll happily eat crow if I'm wrong. But I wouldn't put your hopes and dreams on this one. Instead, just enjoy the music for what it is and be grateful she's still killing it well into her 50s.

Honestly, if someone like Taylor or Dua Lipa or Ariana were releasing this song I could easily see it being a big hit. It feels very fresh. Very of the moment, while still wearing some of those 70s and 80s influences on its sleeve. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Also it was all done in glass and chrome étagères and white lacquer furniture, real tacky expensive Italian luxury stuff. Oh how he loved Vartan and oh how I loved his mega cock, easily 10+ inches (25cm).

R204 Kylie always has good, catchy, danceable songs on the records she releases, but she always seems to come out of the gate releasing the most bland ones, which kills any enthusiasm listeners might have for the album itself. It's like self sabotage.

Her "X" album is a perfect example. The first track she released from that was "All I See" - pleasant enough, but not memorable. She should have released "Wow" or "The One" first. That would have created momentum.

She actually did move to LA in the 90's but it wasn't to make it in the US. (Her records weren't even being released here,something people often forget when talking about her lack of US hits. You can't have hits here if you don't have a US label releasing your stuff ) She said she liked living here because no one knew who she was and that it was amusing to her because she could walk right past paparazzi on the street with not a single camera turned her way. I always thought that was charming. Most celebrities would have a breakdown over that.

A huge hit, and it gave us a sexier Kylie. And several hit songs on the soundtrack. But I don't think it was ever released in the US.

The Locomotion was released in 1987 in Australia and its success led Kylie to fly to the UK to record with Stock Aitken Waterman, which obviously led to I Should Be So Lucky, the first single in the UK. The Locomotion was re-recorded with SAW and released as the third single in the UK.

R237 Also: Kim Wilde, Samantha Fox, Nena, Toyah, Liz Phair, Deborah Blando, Alannah Currie, Mandy Smith, Alison Goldfrapp. All new Madonnas! Credit where credit is due, Kylie is the only one who had any staying power and got bigger every decade 1980s - 2000s.

by Anonymousreply 23907/26/2020

R239 - I'd argue Goldfrapp had staying power. They were never massive (other than, perhaps, briefly in the Supernature era in the UK), but they've maintained their success over their roughly 20 year run. Speaking of which, they were undoubtedly an influence on Kylie's 2 Hearts.

by Anonymousreply 24007/26/2020

Kylie's influence on Australian culture was massive, both for actresses and singers. Most Australian female singers before Kylie were either tough rock chicks (like Chrissy Amphlett), or sensitive new-age crooners like Renee Geyer and Sharon O'Neill. There had been pretty, blonde actresses before Kylie, but the most actresses of the day were hard-looking women, some were as rough as guts. A different aesthetic entirely.

Singers like Tina Arena and Kate Ceberano readily found new young audiences for their music, and every new show had to have a hot young babe who could sell records on the side.

Kylie also suffered massively from Tall Poppy Syndrome in Australia. She was the figurehead for that phrase in the 80s, it became kind of a touchy subject in the Aussie media because they weren't standing by the talent they were producing. Luckily she was resilient. Whenever she changed her look or sound the Australian media were harsh.

Beloved now. It got better but for years there was uneasiness. That's why when she escaped to the UK she didn't really come back much (if ever) in the first 10 years, until her career cooled a bit in the UK. When she went back home to promote Impossible Princess which was a big commercial and critical hit in Australia, and a personal triumph for her, the relationship became much better.

One of the reasons she appreciates her fans is their loyalty. After Impossible Princess didn’t do well in the U.K. many people WANTED her to fail with the Light Years comeback., but she didn’t, and then came back even stronger with Fever. L

Wonder if there’s a way for Louise Redknapp & Eternal to come back with a retro sound? It always seems to work as a formula - Kylie is the Queen of it, but it also worked for Girls Aloud, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Emma Bunton, Natalie Inbruglia, et al.

It’s so difficult to be on the pulse of anything new unless you have the best youngest producers and money to pay them, so looking back not forward is usually where the guaranteed money is. Or are those days over now?

Then again, seeing as Louise blatantly ripped off ‘Sexercise’ five years too late, perhaps there’s no way back.

Kylie relies on the kindness of songwriters. What songwriter would give up a potential hit song to Kylie when it could go to Ariana Grande ? They’ll give kylie an ok or blandly fine one & save the better one for ariana. So that’s what the new kylie song is & what her new album will be: bland but fine.

It helps to watch the video on the highest definition your ISP can handle. The clarity helps with all those sparkle-attack effects. It still doesn't really stop it looking like a tour background video, but, I guess it was tough to do anything more elaborate in the midst of a pandemic. Also, yes, Sophie Muller has some very solid videos in her catalog, but going back to the 80s, 90s and 2000s, but if you look at the totality of her work there are a LOT of duds. In terms of quality, she's pretty inconsistent. Anyway, Kylie rocks

Kylie has had number 1 albums in the 80s, 90s, 00s, and 10s, Having another number 1 album in the 20s would give her a record.

The video is SO lame. So underscaled. It opens with short cut of Kylie in each of the dumb looks she will wear in the video. Then she is sitting on an upholstered arm chair (barely readable as 70s disco era furniture) with 2 undersized gold panther statues, an two folding metallic screens that look leftover from the coffee bar in a gay sauna in middle europa, 1983. The two floor lamp brass palm lamps behind her are nice classic pieces but too small in scale for this shot. It's downhill from there.

Regarding the title of this thread. I'm gay, and Kylie is NOT giving me what I want. There's ZERO gay chic to the song and video of Magic. it's not sexy. It's not sleazy. It's not amusingly camp. It's not chic. Why are they line dancing?

by Anonymousreply 39409/25/2020

Jessie Ware's talented and her album is very good, but she doesn't really have that 'it' star quality.

I'm fairly confident this single is going to be a minor blip and the album, as a whole, will be very good. Hopefully Say Something is more indicative of the album's quality. But, I think using Covid restrictions as an excuse for the serviceable songwriting and anemic production of Magic isn't going to fly. Especially following on the heels of the far superior Say Something. It also isn't an excuse for Sophie Muller's sometimes bafflingly awful choices in editing, lighting and overall framing of shots. Other than those shots of Kylie in that gorgeous Paco Rabanne dress, the video's a bit all over the place.

Anyway, this is still Kylie. She'll deliver.

That's the kind of music she should be doing now at her age - sexy, moody pop. This disco shit is tired as hell, the songs all sound super cheap and she's too old for it. She's starting to remind me of that crazy grandma (Disco Sally?) who frequented Studio 54 and dropped dead in the middle of the dancefloor one night.

I'm kinda relieved to see it has element of live performance and doesn't just look like one long music video. Plus, that looks like a big choir backing her which should be great for the second half of the song where the vocals really sore.

Well, she lost consistency in the wake of "Can't Get You Out of My Head." There were great singles after it, of course, but it was a mistake to go "a bit R&B," which doesn't suit her vocal style. She may love "Red Blooded Woman" and "Chocolate" but they weren't right for her and they didn't add to her legacy, sort of like the Spice Girls and "Holler."

I think and R&B influence/attitude can work well with her, but going straight R&B just feels like a reach. I think you could argue that even Can't Get You Out Of My Head -- especially her vocal delivery -- has a bit of an R&B edge/influence... it's the attitude.

It's definitely 70s disco. I like it, but it'll get old fast.

Donna Summer was '70s disco but she and Moroder/Bellotte varied the sound. Oh, and they had something to say. All the Kylie songs are saying much the same thing. Prostitutes/Bad Girls might have been kitschy/hokey but it differentiated the song majorly from "Hot Stuff."

Kylie is 53 and has had a great, long career. And though her new song is quite catchy and she did country last year, she long ago peaked as a singer. I'd really like to see her try something new, maybe a return to acting. She's hoping to move back to Australia once quarantine is over and join her sister Dannii, and I'd like to see her back on Neighbours early next year.

It's a shame she can't replicate that livestream performance of Say Something with the gospel choir -- that took it to an even higher level -- and feels tailor made for 2020.

Yeah, and, unfortunately, older artists -- by and large -- tend to have stronger physical sales than streaming numbers.

If Disco hits #1, Kylie will be the only person to have had a number 1 album in 5 consecutive decades in her own name.

3 men have achieved it, but their number 1 albums include the groups they were part of - Pauls Weller and McCartney and David Gilmour. I'd disqualify Paul McCartney though as the 90s and 00s albums were Beatles compilations.

West Coasters (or anyone who hasn't seen it yet,) let me say, if you're even a casual Kylie fan you do NOT want to miss Infinite Disco. I don't always think everything Kylie does succeeds, but this livestream concert is an utter triumph. It give you a taste of what a possible post-Covid Disco-themed Kylie tour would be like. It's like a cross between a traditional live concert, a music video and an in studio TV performance. Kylie's voice is in fantastic shape, the live arrangements are so stinking great -- on both the classic and new tracks -- and it is so damn stylish, sleek and modern in its lighting and staging. And, yet, through all of those dazzling laser shows and stage arrangements, Kylie's star presence and warmth are never lost. It truly exceeded my expectation. I think there's one more livestream happening at 8pm PT.
