If Cher can last until 58, then expect Kylie to stick around.

You're free to disagreee as much as you like. You're as entitled to your opinion as I am to mine. It's just that yours is wrong.

"So chuffed they asked".!!!!! I'm sorry but out of the 20+Million Aussies living in this country, not one... I repeat, not one, would say "chuffed" ("Stuffed" as in something is broken, ie "My ipod's stuffed" but not "chuffed".) And for Gawd sake girl, what is it with the accent????
Tania!!

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to side with Ms Genetically Modified Horse 1988 on this one. It saddens me, but that's life.

The annoying bint has lived in the UK for about 12 years now, so she's bound to have picked up phrases here and there. As for the accent, well, I do agree with you, but as I have moved around a lot, I've picked up traces of local accents here and there, even as an adult.

Doesn't make her screeching any more tolerable though. Also, I know she can't help this, but WHY does she still have pre-pubescent boobs at the age of 36?

The one who REALLY gets on my nerves with her ridiculous fake accent is Madonna. I know a lot of people find it endearing that she wants to sound like she comes from our crappy little island in the middle of nowhere. I don't. Why spend 20+ years building a strong identity for yourself and then desperately try to be from somewhere else?! Great tunes though, in general.

I like quite a few Kylie songs. And I like the few I've heard by her sister, too. 'Slow' is a fantastic dance song.

So did I, when I was 9/10/11... I don't mean that to sound as though I'm being rude to you, because I'm not - I'm just stating a fact. I loved K when I was a kid, my sister and I thought she was the dogs bollocks (not literally) and knew all the words to all the songs.

Slow is quite atmospheric, and I still like On A Night Like This. Some wag reviewed the latter, and offered the opinion that "Kylie sings this song of yearning with all the passion of reading out a grocery shopping list". It did make me laugh, but it was pretty unkind of them really.

That's really not saying much! I do think she's a good entertainer, live, though, as I said earlier - she does seem to put her heart into all her shows, which cannot truthfully be said about the majority of today's poptarts . IMO, obviously.

Indeed, but then I don't really have a high opinion of what the pop market is offering at the moment

I miss the Spice Girls :/

If it came to a choice between choosing between Kyles, the Spices, or being shot... I'd go for the third option. It's a 'cake or death' thing!

Nah. I'd definitely choose The Great Horsefaced One over that lot. She has some talent at least.

Well, I'm 28 and pretty comfortable with my taste in music. No offense taken.

So you still like at least one of her songs, think she's a good live entertainer, and admit she has some talent. What's the problem then? She's probably not the best singer out there, but I just don't see the need to call for her retirement.

Glad to hear it! To each her/his/its own. It would be boring if we were all alike.

Good point! It's not a problem. It's just that having been stuck with her for 18 years on and off, I'm fairly fed up of hearing about her - in the UK she's been around since 1987. I find her somewhat irritating. Maybe I'm prematurely becoming a Grumpy Old Sod.

My mum told me off too, for complaining about her, lol!!!

Look, I know she's irritating, her voice sounds like 14 rats on helium and she's 2 foot 3, BUT if she retired, what would Australia have left in the poptart's arena:

DELTA FUCKING GOODREM, that's who!

Gimme Kylie over Goody 2 shoes (even if she's become a homewrecker these days!) anyday!

yes I will expand my opinion to include HeartlandGirl's, because that's what I agree wtih

I'd sooner see people like Aerosmith retire.

Kylie's great and better than most.

Not many women can actually get sexier with age.

Her songs aren't that bad. They are shallow, yet they never [retend to be anything other than pure pop.

Better the Devil You KNow
Some Kind of Bliss
On a Night Like This
Red Blooded Woman
Love at first sight


All are thoroughly enjoyable...
