Kylie Minogue may not be the most conservatively dressed pop star out there (“Timebomb” music video, anyone? That web dress isn’t exactly subtle), but apparently she draws the line at flashing her nipple to an audience of 55,000 fans.
On a recent “Fashion Police” appearance, the Australian singer expressed her bewilderment regarding the controversial moment at Madonna’s Istanbul concert when the Queen of Pop exposed her breast to the audience.
“Was she caught in the moment, was it premeditated, who knows?” Minogue speculated. “I think it’s got people more perplexed than excited by it.”
The conversation then turned to the cheerleader costume Madonna sports during a segment of her “MDNA Tour.” According to Joan Rivers, the getup makes the 53-year-old superstar look “like she flunked tenth grade 48 times.” Kylie had a more straightforward reaction to the ensemble, stating simply, “No. Just no.”
Still, the Australian crooner insists she has nothing but respect for her pop predecessor. When asked about the frequent comparisons between the two, Minogue quipped, “Is that because we are the two oldest ones?”
Generational similarities aside, 44-year-old Minogue graciously admitted, “I grew up such a fan of her. I don’t even care how we’re in the same sentence. It’s quite good for me.”
Well said, Kylie.
