Lazy lazy lazy lazy

A mixture of pure laziness and work is the reason I haven't updated the blog for the past month. Things have went sort of quiet on Kylie's end as well but things are starting to pick up. I promise to start updating regularly again and it's time for another new look for the blog, don't you think? :)

Kylie back in the studio with Greg Kurstin!

The pic is from Kylie's official twitter. I for one am excited because Greg did some fabulous tracks for X. All the Wow haters are soiling their panties yet again and I couldn't be happier! Greg has really evolved over the past few years as a producer since working on X so the results should be amazing!

Greg produced Wow, No More Rain, Do It Again, Carried Away, Deepest Blue, and don't forget his amazing remix of Can't Get You Out Of My Head!

Entertainment Weekly reviews Kylie's NYC concert!

Kylie Minogue live at NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom: Come into her world
by Adam Markovitz

When I spoke to Kylie Minogue earlier this year about her upcoming US tour—the first in her 20-year career—she warned her usual arena-size stage show would have to be scaled down to fit the smaller venues she’d be playing over here. But she also made a promise: “There’ll still be the razzle-dazzle, don’t you worry. It’s not going to be me with a banjo.”

She wasn’t kidding.

Last night’s show at NYC’s Hammerstein Ballroom was a two-hour post-disco fantasia of strobe, bass, and glitter—an all-out spectacle worthy of her American fans’ pent-up adoration. Barreling through her sizable songbook, Kylie stepped into a cast of personae—a wind-up space princess, a stomping glam rocker, a pouting screen siren—each with its own over-the-top costume and set decor. Seven jumbo screens pulsed background images for each number. Hits old (”Better the Devil You Know”), new (”Wow”), and soon-to-be (the upcoming single “Better Than Today”) whipped the audience into a sustained frenzy, while rose petals and confetti showered the stage at key moments.

But despite the glitz, this was no exercise in Spears-ian auto-pilot pop. The size of the venue demanded audience interaction, and Kylie happily chatted with the crowd throughout, taking requests for songs and dance moves from audience members who had queued up as early as 2am that morning to be front and center for the show. She lavished attention on her band, including a three piece horn section and two unfeasibly gorgeous backup singers. Fan-favorite ballads like “Confide in Me” and a stripped-down “I Believe in You” became a showcase her voice, a surprisingly solid soprano that usually gets glazed under thick layers of processing on her recordings.

And one thing was clear from the get-go: Minogue knows exactly whom she’s singing for. The opening number began with a brief instrumental medley of tunes from West Side Story, The Wizard of Oz, and The Sound of Music, and then segued into the lesser-known 2000 album track “Light Years,” at which point the singer, dressed in a Mars Attack- style minidress and feather wrap, was lowered onto the stage atop a giant, metallic skull. The crowd—some still wearing pins from that morning’s National Equality March in Washington, DC—roared their approval, a warm NYC welcome twenty years in the making. It would be a shame to make them wait that long again.

Kylie North America 2009 Tour Reviews

Kylie has been getting some great reviews from the North American press about her first ever tour here. There are a couple that have been on the negative side but they are outweighed by the positive reviews. Judging the reviews and audience reaction from the shows I would say this tour has been a success and hopefully North America will be seeing more of Kylie's live shows in the near future.

Below is a compiled list of reviews from various sites.

LA Times
Las Vegas Weekly
San Francisco Chronicle
Rolling Stone
US Weekly

Know of anymore reviews that should be posted or if you want to tell us what you enjoyed about the tour then don't hesitate to comment! :)

Speakerphone live at the Hollywood Bowl 10.04.09

Is it me or has Steve Anderson took major inspiration from Daft Punk for this new mix? It's fucking amazing!

I'm back from Vegas!

Hello, hello! How is everyone doing? I'm back from seeing Kylie in Vegas and what a wonderful time it was. Kylie definitely delivered and put on a great show. The audience was eating it all up. Anywho, I'm going to be posting some of the tour reviews and pictures that have popped up around the net. I've got to get back into the groove of things. :)

Tony Testa choreographing Kylie's upcoming US tour!

I'm glad that they actually got rid of Michael Rooney and are bringing in some new creative blood. This is making me real excited for the tour in a few more weeks! Read his bio and watch his choreography reel below.
Tony Testa recently relocated to Los Angeles from his hometown of Fort Collins, Colorado in 2005. He started dancing at the age of 8, and at 14 was on tour with the original cast of TapKids and with Aaron Carter for his Jukebox World Tour.

Since moving to Los Angeles, he has danced with Beyoncé in Dreamgirls, with Britney Spears on the VMA’s, and choreographed and danced for Janet Jackson in her 20 Y.O. and Discipline projects.

At the age of 22, Tony has fully established himself as a choreographer, leaving his stamp on Danity Kane’s Making The Band 4 Tour, the Cheetah Girls GMA & ALMA performances, So You Think You Can Dance in Holland, half time shows for ABC’s Slamball, and two commercials for Sketchers.

In 2008 he co-directed his first show for Monsters of Hip Hop, choreographed Nickelodeon’s Dance on Sunset, a music video for Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly) and multiple episodes of Disney’s The Wizards of Waverly Place. He just returned from Japan where he choreographed two TV show appearances for Britney Spears' Circus promo tour.

Most recently he was blessed with the opportunity of a lifetime to work as a part of the creative team on Michael Jackson's final project, This Is It.

Kylie performs at ABBA tribute concert 09.13.09

I'm totally late making this post but you all will get over it. Kylie performed this past weekend in Hyde Park at the largest tribute concert for ABBA held to date. Kylie performed in front of a crowd of over thirty-thousand ABBA fans. Kylie performed the classic ABBA tracks Super Trouper and When All Is Said and Done. Watch videos of her performance below! :)

If anyone wants the audio rips from the radio broadcast then just comment and I'll upload them! :)

This video better win the Speakerphone competition!

What a fantastic job the guy has done! I freaking love the concept of Kylie being some goddess who catches men and turns them into stone. Hopefully this is the video that will be picked to be shown at the Hollywood Bowl concert! :)

I'm so freaking excited about this collabo and I'm hoping it makes the new album!

BlackBookMag: Kylie Talks North American Takedown

Kylie Minogue Talks North American Takedown Kylie Minogue has nothing to prove. She’s the sweetheart of just about every nation in the world. Countless European tabloid covers have devoted serious headline space to her romance with Italian pin-up Andrés Velencoso, 10 years her junior. The mini-divinity has not one, but five fragrances. She was even honored with the prestigious Order of the British Empire and the French Order of Arts and Letters. So why, exactly, has Minogue’s career not taken off Stateside? Maybe it’s because she hasn’t toured in North America since first chugging along to “The Loco- Motion” in 1987. Even Neighbours, the TV soap opera that gave birth to her illustrious career, was broadcast almost exclusively for Australian and European audiences. But all that’s about to change as the gamine, 41-year-old entertainer from Down Under takes her spectacular live show this side of the pond for the first time ever. Through each endeavor and incarnation—from Charlene, the garage mechanic on Neighbours, to the early-’90s shiny bubblegum-pop princess and the moody soul-searcher alongside Nick Cave, to the breast cancer survivor and activist—Kylie stays Kylie. Both sexy and likeable, she is the diva-next-door.

I’ve been watching you since the early days of Charlene on Neighbours. Now, again, those 1980s outfits are everywhere.
Can you believe it? I’m sure everyone from that time thought it would never, ever happen, but now you’ve got girls wearing scrunchies—my God, it’s incredible.

Did you ever anticipate that you’d grow up to be such a massive brand?
No, absolutely not. Maybe I’ve got a false impression of myself, but I was very shy at school. When I was younger, I wasn’t really at the front. I never did school plays or anything like that, though I began learning music from the age of 4. Acting came up by chance and one thing led to another. I don’t think about it very often, but if I looked back on Charlene, and how feisty she was, I guess that was in me as well.

Your success hasn’t been as recordbreaking stateside. Americans were slow to embrace your 10th album, X.
The fans in America aren’t great in number, but they’re great in spirit. And they’ve been so patient. I think I really shocked them when I said I was touring, because they’ve become accepting of the fact that it was never going to happen. But I meant it, all the years I spent saying I would love to tour the States.

What can we expect from the tour?
I decided not to go somewhere I’ve never been before, direction-wise, because American audiences haven’t seen my live shows for the most part. So we decided—and I guess it works well in these financial times—to bring with us a “best of” my different tours.

You’re best known as a performer, but you’ve diversified well.
I have all of these side projects—from bed linens to perfumes—but none of them would exist without the nuts and bolts of what I do, which is music and performance. But I find them really enjoyable; it’s just another way of being creative

After years spent being a famous rave scenester, did being sick make you discover other parts of yourself?
I spent a lot of time being pretty quiet. You don’t have a lot of energy to do much more than that. I spent time reflecting and projecting, trying to give myself goals for where I wanted to be when I was well. That was obviously pretty emotional and I was still a bit delicate. But now I think I’m back in full flight.

And you’re actually living what you projected positively?
I actually am. When people asked about my aspirations in life, I always said I wanted to find harmony, a balance between work and my private life, between work and play. I almost got tired of hearing myself say it, but I finally managed to make that happen. It’s a bit of a shame that it took something so traumatic for me to take action. But, at the moment, I really am enjoying my work, I’m enjoying performing more than ever and I feel a lot more relaxed and confident onstage—not that I’m without my nerves, of course. I’m also making time to do other nice, pleasant things…

Let’s face it, you do have a majorly hunky bloke.
For all the talk of me having boyfriends and failed romances—I always find it a bit depressing when it’s written like that—my life just hasn’t been the white picket fence. I’ve spent plenty of time on my own, so it’s good now to have someone to do those fun and not-so-fun things with. I’m not particularly good on my own.

I’d imagine you let go of your passion for clothing when you became ill.
I still tried to make an effort. Fashion takes a total rethink when it involves a scarf and when you’re not at your best. But I wasn’t prepared to let it all go, no way.

You seem to share a special bond with Jean Paul Gaultier.
I met him at the start of the ’90s, way, way, way back when I first spent time in Paris. He’s such a talented, genuine and generous person. I was at his couture show just a couple of days ago because he’ll be doing some outfits for these upcoming shows in America. I wore a rare vintage lace dress of his that my stylist found on eBay. It wasn’t in Jean Paul’s archives. It’s really sexy, with all the poppers up front.

Does it have cowboys in the lace? I have that dress! I wonder if I can still get into it.
Force yourself! Pain is fleeting, but fashion is forever.

Kylie heats up Madrid for MTV Day 2009

Kylie performed for the second time ever in Spain this past Thursday to an audience of almost 20,000 for MTV Day 2009. The show featured the same setlist as the other past festival gigs she has done so far this year and a couple new costumes were thrown into the mix. Kylie also performed with Spanish pop icon Miguel Bosé. Must say that Kylie is looking sexier than ever and I am about to piss myself with excitement to see her this October in Vegas! 8D

Sexual Gold (The Slips Remix)

A remix using the official accapella of Sexual Gold. The original has yet to leak but hopefully it will soon. It's like the only demo I'm dying to hear from the X sessions besides the Daft Punk tracks.


Thinks are a bit boring in Kylie land at the moment.

You know Kylie is working on a new album when things start to quiet down a bit. Not to mention she still has a few gigs across Europe this summer and preparations will begin for the US tour this fall. Things are just a tad slow and boring right now.

I also really haven't been compelled to update that much either but I'm getting really excited for everything that is coming up in Kylie world. I'm going to be posting more from now on.

Kylie makes Entertainment Weekly's Music 'Must List' 2009

Kylie Minogue: Must American Invasion
For two decades, she's been one of those Aussie treasures — like Vegemite or rugby — that never quite hooked America. But a fiercely loyal following has finally lured the pop icon into her first-ever U.S. tour, with eight dates starting Sept. 30. Expect enough room-shaking beats to keep you dancing from here to Down Under.,,20286320_3,00.html
