Sunday Diva/Three From The Hip: Kylie Minogue
Sunday Diva/Three From The Hip:
In my own personal big gay church, there is a wing festooned with disco balls, strobes and a pulsing dancefloor. Here reign the Divas of the Dancefloor; a rare cultural phenomena somewhat confined to the clubs. Their siren calls beckon you forth, bewitching you with soulful sounds and inspirational words, causing your body to gyrate as if taken by a spirit. Theirs is the world of house - and by house, I mean, these ladies know how to take you to church, son. With their voices we soar and are liberated from gravity's and reality's pull. One such diva?
Style. Grace. She gives good face.
As colorful as she is delightful.
A pop princess who became a dancefloor diva.
Her life? Not without it's tragedies.
She senselessly lost her life partner.
Then cancer came to call.
But she came through it, with all her showgirl feathers still in place.
Her legions of fans would expect nothing less of her.
For them? She is a goddess, a siren bringing joy into the world for all to see.
The gospel according to her?
Well, here are three from the hip, dropping from her lips.
The topic? Being Funny Sexy.
"I've always been a little shy about taking my clothes off, but I don't worry about it any more. I do quite naughty things now. I do like to be a bit sexy. Part of me is a sexual exhibitionist."
"The Sun in London ran a front page declaring my bum a national treasure. I really did laugh at that. Its not like it can actually do anything, except wiggle."
"My gay audience has been with me from the beginning. I do dance music, and I can be pretty camp myself from time to time. Gay icons usually have some tragedy in their lives, but I've only had tragic haircuts and outfits."
