Kylie Ann Minogue was born on May 28, 1968 in Melbourne, Australia.
When she was ten years old, Kylie went with her sister to audition for "The
Sullivans" and got the part of Carla.
Kylie's big break came in 1986 when she was cast as car mechanic Charlene on the
popular Australian soap opera "Neighbours". During her two and a half years on
"Neighbours", Kylie recorded her debut single, a remake of the classic 1962
track "The Locomotion", introducing her to the pop music scene. Her string of
successful hit singles took off with the release of "I Should Be So Lucky", and
was followed by "Got To Be Certain", "Je Ne Sais Pas Pour Qui", "Hand On Your
Heart", "Wouldn't Change A Thing", and "Never Too Late" from her self-titled
debut album and the follow up "Enjoy Yourself". Kylie's success grew even more
after several duets with her "Neighbours" co-star, Jason Donovan.
After Kylie's debut film role in "The Delinquents" (1989), the '90s saw Kylie
turn into a sexy superstar. The newly transformed Kylie was now gaining more
media coverage than ever, and was signed to a deal with DeConstruction Records.
She even jumped on the Madonna erotic literature bandwagon and wrote a sex book
of her own, but it never saw the light of day.
In 1994 Kylie released a second self-titled album that was grungier than the
first. She also appeared as Lt. Cammy in the live-action adaptation of "Street
In 1996, she collaborated with the Manic Street Preachers, and released an album
the following year entitled "Impossible Princess".
Although her later albums did not see the same commercial success as her more
poppy ones, Kylie Minogue is still one of Australia's greatest exports. She was
last seen performing the ABBA classic "Dancing Queen" and "On A Night Like This"
at the closing ceremony of the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. She recently
released "Fever", a collection of post-disco electro-funk.
