Kylie Mingoe releases "Kiss Me Once"
When we last checked in on Kylie Minogue, she had split from her longtime manager Terry Blamey. But Minogue quickly landed on her feet, inking a deal with Roc Nation. She was featured on Italian singer-songwriter Laura Pausini's single "Limpido" in the fall of 2013, and it not only went to number one, it was nominated for "World's Best Song" at the 2013 World Music Awards.
With her music career once again on an upward trajectory, Minogue was hired as coach for the third series of BBC One's "The Voice UK" alongside will.i.am, Ricky Wilson and Sir Tom Jones. Her first episode on the show as a judge aired in January 2014, and Minogue has since been hired as a coach for the third season of "The Voice Australia."
This past March, Minogue released her 12th studio album, "Kiss Me Once." It peaked at the top of the charts in Australia and No. 2 in the UK. The project also spawned two singles – "Into the Blue" and "I Was Gonna Cancel" – and the Kiss Me Once Tour.
Here's more good news for Minogue fans as we close out 2014: she's shooting a brand new video. According to reports, Minogue has called on noted dancer/choreographer Blake McGrath for help, but hasn't revealed exactly what the video is for. It could be another single off her latest album, or possibly for an upcoming collaboration with synth-pop pioneer Giorgio Moroder.
Minogue is currently slated to appear in the upcoming 2015 disaster film, "San Andreas," alongside Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Minogue breaks from music to refocus on acting (Updated January 30, 2013)
A child actress no more, Australia's Kylie Minogue is her own woman these days. With her infectious dance pop and a string of hits from 1988's "The Loco-Motion" to 2012's "Timebomb," she successfully made the transition from a bubblegum pop princess to the much more rhythmic world of dance music and nightclubs.
Long before she was called a "sex goddess" by Rolling Stone magazine, Minogue got her start acting in television dramas as a teen. But it was her 1986 debut on the soap opera "Neighbors" that catapulted the then 18-year-old to stardom. She landed a record deal soon after, with label heads convinced of her unlimited potential. Sure enough, her remake of the Little Eva hit "The Loco Motion" went straight to number one.
Having dominated the Australian charts, Minogue began a trek across the globe. The only place she found resistance was the American market, which turned a blind eye to her much more mature image and transition to dance pop in the early 90's. It took almost another decade for the songstress to be reintroduced to U.S. audiences, and this time she was massively successful at winning them over. Her album "Fever" and the single "Can't Get You Out of My Head" charted inside the top five, and the Grammys showered her with nominations (and an eventual win in 2002 for "Come Into My World").
Breast cancer sidelined Minogue in 2005, but it certainly didn't slow her down. After making a full recovery, she released her tenth album, "X," in 2007. The sales were strong enough that she planned her first tour of the U.S. in 2009. Following the release of her 11th full-length EP, "Aphrodite" in 2010, she also collaborated on songs with some of music's biggest names.
In 2012 Minogue celebrated her 25th year in the industry with a greatest hits release, a new single ("Timebomb"), a singles collection (K25) and an album of her biggest hits 'reimagined' for a small band and orchestra called "The Abbey Road Sessions." At the beginning of 2013, however, she split with her longtime manager, and also announced she was taking a break from the pressures of her career to devote more time to herself and to acting.
