Kylie će se navodno još jednom pojaviti u Britanskom showu X Factor no ovog puta neće nastupati nego će pomoći svojoj sestri Dannii - koja je jedna od sutkinja u showu - da izabere 3 od 6 najboljih kandidatkinja u njezinoj kategoriji za krajnji dio showa!
Kako su mediji jučer objavili Dannii će sa svojih 6 djevojaka u kategoriji od 16-25 god. otputovati u Dubai gdje će uz Kylie izabrati 3 finalistice!
Kylie je danas viđena u Londonskoj zračnoj luci (slike ispod) od kuda je vjerojatno otputovala za Dubai!
Judge Dannii Minogue is hoping for second time lucky, lucky, lucky. She has got her sister Kylie helping her to win the contest. The Aussie beauty, 37, won two years ago with her protege Leon Jackson, 20. Now she is after the crown again. Dannii will be mentoring the young girls category this year.
Today she flies to Dubai for the homes stage of the competition.
The pop star has already chosen her six faves but now faces the nail-biting decision of picking the best three for the live stages of the show. And she has asked Kylie, 41, to come on board. The pair will put the girls through one tough final audition. An insider said: “It’s nerve-racking enough to face Dannii but having Kylie as well really piles on the pressure.”
Cheryl Cole, 26, is picking the boys category in Morocco. Simon Cowell, 49, will choose the best over-25s in Los Angeles, while Louis Walsh, 57, will choose his bands in Tuscany.

Kylie is Australia's most powerful personal brand!
Kylie - australski brend br. 1
Popularna australska pjevačica, Kylie Minogue postala je ponosna vlasnica titule najmoćnijega australijskog brenda. Laskavom titulom okrunilo ju je 400 ljudi iz zabavne industrije u anketi Talent Inc! Personal Brand, ocjenjujući doprinos poznatih Australaca u ostatku svijeta.
Ta 41-godišnja džepna Venera u svojoj je dosadašnjoj glazbenoj karijeri prodala 40 milijuna singlova i 25 milijuna albuma.
Na top listi deset Australaca koji imaju veliki utjecaj u svijetu te time ujedno i uspješno promoviraju svoj kontinent, među ostalim su ne našli i premijer Kevin Rudd, glumci Hugh Jackman i Nicole Kidman, igrač kriketa Shane Warne te pokojni "lovac na krokodile" Steve Irwin.
Kylie Minogue is Australia's most powerful personal brand

SHE was once labelled the singing budgie, but Kylie Minogue has beaten sports stars, media moguls and even the prime minister in a survey of Australia's most powerful personal brands.
Some 400 people in the marketing/entertainment industry were asked to rate famous Australians according to how well developed their brand and brand awareness are.
Minogue topped the Talent Inc! Personal Brand survey, with a brand based on her music and acting, her perfume and underwear ventures, and her good looks and integrity.
"I think what makes Kylie number one is overall she appeals to a broad stream of people," Mark Richardson from Talent Inc! said.
"Although she's had ups and downs in terms of her albums, and especially in her ... love life and her health, she's always managed those things with grace and integrity.
"Over a period of time it's given her brand a real strength and value."
Coming in at second place is supermodel Elle Macpherson, who has her own lingerie label and skincare products.
Cricketer Shane Warne, personality Dame Edna Everage and golfer Greg Norman rounded out the top five.
Richardson said Warne was one of many sports people who made the list for their reputation off the field and as well as on.
"Because of his extraordinary genius on the pitch, he will always be revered," Richardson said.
"The indiscretions he had are kind of idiotic, they're kind of stupid, not malicious. Ben Cousins' indiscretions are far more damaging than Shane's."
Steve Irwin, Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman also ranked in the top 10, while Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and entrepreneur Dick Smith came in at number nine and 10.
Despite being our highest paid entertainers, The Wiggles only ranked at 18, while Aussie icon Ned Kelly came in at 34.
Richardson said among the survey's general findings were that if you're a man you don't have to be attractive to have a powerful personal brand, but being a good looking as a woman helps.
Being famous internationally also seemed to boost your ranking.
Richardson said many of the people with the most powerful personal brands were involved in a range of activities, such as Elle MacPherson and Greg Norman.
"It's important that there's balance there and they're seen as well-rounded," he said.
"But more importantly that there's some integrity there."

Kylie se nalazi u još jednom Američkom časopisu, BlackBook, u kojem među ostalim priča o svojem ljubavnom životu, modi, njezinoj bolesti te njezinoj nadolazećoj Sjeverno Američkoj turneji!
Dio intervjua možete pročitati ispod:
Kylie Minogue looks stunning in a spread for BlackBook Magazine, in which she discusses her love life, fashion, her illness, and her upcoming tour in America.
Here are some of the highlights:
On Her American Fans:
"The fans in America aren't great in number, but they're great in spirit. And they've been so patient. I think I really shocked them when I said I was touring, because they've become accepting of the fact that it was never going to happen. But I meant it, all the years I spent saying I would love to tour the States."
On Her Upcoming Tour:
"I decided not to go somewhere I've never been before, direction-wise, because American audiences haven't seen my live shows for the most part. So we decided…to bring with us a "best of" my different tours."
On Her Cancer:
"I spent a lot of time being pretty quiet. You don't have a lot of energy to do much more than that. I spent time reflecting and projecting, trying to give myself goals for where I wanted to be when I was well…When people asked about my aspirations in life, I always said I wanted to find harmony, a balance between work and my private life, between work and play…I finally managed to make that happen."
On Her Style While Sick:
"Fashion takes a total rethink when it involves a scarf and when you're not at your best. But I wasn't prepared to let it all go, no way."
On Pal, Jean Paul Gaultier:
"I met him at the start of the '90s way, way, way back when I first spent time in Paris. He's such a talented, genuine and generous person. I was at his couture show just a couple of days ago because he'll be doing some outfits for these upcoming shows in America."
Kylie se nalazi na naslovnici rujanskog izdanja Američkog #1 Gay časopisa povodom svoje prve Sjeverno Američke turneje koja započinje krajem rujna!
Dio intervjua iz časopisa i jedna slika iz ekskluzivnog photoshoota ispod:
Pop Goddess KYLIE MINOGUE talks EXCLUSIVELY with Instinct Magazine about coming to America and why she’s more ready than ever to make you dance!
There are two types of gays in the world: Kylie gays and everyone else. We are so Kylie gays. Ms. Minogue has held the world’s attention for 20 plus years now; dancing, singing, acting and shocking millions along the way. Whether you remember her “Locomotion” or just couldn’t seem to shake “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head,” Kylie’s dozens of hits off her 10 albums have come to represent moments and memories for all of us. (Who doesn’t remember dancing to “Love At First Sight” during Pride 2002?!) And whether at the Olympic Closing Ceremonies, Sydney Mardi Gras or her extravagant, over-the-top tours, it seems the whole world has gotten to see Kylie live— except for us. But that is all about to change. Now, as she prepares for her first-ever U.S. tour (which kicks off Sept. 30), Kylie speaks exclusively with Instinct about her dream of a hot, sweaty club tour through the States, ’80s flashbacks and her deep-rooted love and commitment to her gays.
INSTINCT: Our prayers have been answered—you’re finally touring America! How does it feel?
KYLIE: [Laughs] I’m so excited, it’s ridiculous. There is still a certain amount of disbelief because it’s really happening. I’ve spoken about this for so long and I was sure the fans in the States had given up, hadn’t you?
Oh no! We may have gotten a little weary, but we kept the faith. Had you tried to launch a U.S. tour before?
With my management and production team, we talked about it many times, but as you know, my shows are on the bigger side. They’re bigger girls. [Laughs] And it just was never feasible for us to do it. So I just ended up biting the bullet and saying, ‘It’s now or never.’ I’m having such a good time performing at the moment and the X tour last year was something of a revelation.
Why do you say that?
Because when I used to do performances, I might have exuded an air of confidence but I didn’t really have it. I spent a lot of time stressing and worrying and I couldn’t tour and actually be. Then after I was ill I reevaluated things and said I can’t go through that stress again. It’s not worth it. This is who I am and I’m going to try and have the same outcome without so much stress. So that’s what I did. I’m happy and I’m having a ball. I love my new band, there’s a dynamism.
Literally I thought, it’s now or never. I want to do it and I don’t want to be making that move in 10 years. I was just on a bit of a roll with the team I have right now.
You’re doing smaller venues here than you normally do, so are you building a whole new show?
That’s been our one stumbling block. The venues are all totally different. I won’t bore you with the details but technically it’s really, really difficult. When we’ve had some stumbling blocks and complications I’ve piped up and said, ‘Oh, this is why we’ve never done this before.’ [Laughs] But we’re all so inspired to be doing this. We’re kind of back referencing some of the tours because I haven’t brought any of them to the States. So there will be bits and pieces, but I won’t tell you which parts. It’s a surprise.
Kylie confirms on her Twitter she has been/will work on her new album with:
- Nerina Pallot & Andy Chatterly

Kylie je na svojem službenom Twitteru potvrdila/otkrila te dala naslutiti s kime je već radila i skime će uskoro raditi na svojem 11. studijskom albumu koji se sada, ne službeno očekuje na proljeće 2010.g.
