Gay Iconography: Can't Get Kylie Minogue Out of Our Heads

Big icons come in small packages. The petite pop princess Kylie Minogue is not just a gay icon, but, according to a survey printed in The Sun, she’s the biggest gay icon of all time.

You’re free to disagree, but there’s plenty more evidence in her favor. Even Rufus Wainwright named her one of his top gay icons, saying “I love Kylie, she's the anti-Madonna. Self-knowledge is a truly beautiful thing and Kylie knows herself inside out. She is what she is and there is no attempt to make quasi-intellectual statements to substantiate it. She is the gay shorthand for joy.”

She’s acknowledged and celebrated her gay audience throughout her decades-long career.

“I didn’t become a gay icon or become popular in the gay community for doing something specific. That happened just because I was being myself,” she told The Advocate last year. “When I’m on tour, I think there’s a little bit of everything there. From a row of muscle Marys and drag queens to dads, moms, grandmas, and three generations of girls – everyone is there. So I try to put into my shows and albums a little bit for everyone and I hope that colors my work in the best way.”

Whether LGBT audiences adore her for her disco-flavored dance tunes, flashy costumes or charming personality, Kylie’s fervent fans have made her an institution since the late 1980s.

Kylie Minogue Releases 'Crystallize': MUSIC VIDEO

Crystallize_kylie

Kylie Minogue released a new track and video on Monday. Minogue, a cancer survivor, wrote the song as a tie-in for the charity One Note for Cancer and the video reveals a long list of folks who donated at its conclusion. Idolator writes:

Minogue worked on “Crystallize” with Dev Hynes and Babydaddy of Scissor Sisters. Pity the track didn’t make the cut for Kiss Me Once, as its upbeat vibe and positive lyrics would have worked perfectly when sandwiched in with the rest of the set.

Kylie Minogue and Hugh Jackman Play 'Innuendo Bingo': VIDEO

Jackman

BBC Radio 1 was in for a treat when Hugh Jackman expressed interest in coming to their show for some rounds of "Innuendo Bingo." Unfortunately, the host of the show Scott Mills (whom you may remember from Game of Moans) was unable to be in the studio for the date they set up and Jackman was unable to come at any other time. They decided to take a chance and invited the inimitable Kylie Minogue to play hostess...and she said yes.

You can watch the cavalcade of muffled giggles, seriously out-of-context audio clips, and some very wet pants - and shirts, AFTER THE JUMP...
