Kylie Minogue Quotes
"Gay icons usually have some tragedy in their lives, but I've only had tragic haircuts and outfits."
"I didn't want to fizzle out. I had to keep going, like a little Shetland pony."
I don't try to be a sex bomb. I am one."
"If I stopped making records or performing, I'd probably still be famous for a while being me. But I'd rather have something to show for myself."
"I'm like an eight year old with the dressing-up box. I have the luxury of being able to change on a whim."
When asked what it is that nobody knows about her: "Probably one of my measurements. Madame Tussaud's has them all because they just re-did me, and I learnt measurements I never knew existed on a person's anatomy!"
"I never say never about a lot of things. Whatever you want, then more power to you. If someone feels they have to live up to a certain image, then I can kind of understand that pressure because I'm considered to be one of those images, and I know how unreal they are."
"I could see myself as a glitter-hippie."
