9780091880965: Kylie: Naked

Kylie Minogue is an icon to millions who have followed her remarkable career for over a decade, from Neighbours to Stock Aitken & Waterman to her current dominance of the charts. She has constantly reinvented herself over the years, morphing from bubblegum Pop Queen to steamy Sex Vixen and now sophisticated Disco Seductress. Naked, an intimate biography of the antipodean pop princess, explores the real girl behind the many guises: childhood stories; her secret relationship with Jason Donovan; her 'adult' education at the hands of Michael Hutchence; the competitive relationship she had with her sister Dannii; plus Kylie's thoughts on a wide range of subjects and interviews with colleagues and confidants. Exposing the personal and professional highs and lows that have created a star who has had chart-topping hits spanning three decades, Naked is a biography as glittering as Kylie herself.

Review:

The authors of Kylie Naked assure us in their introduction that there wasnít time to obtain Kylieís co-operation with this exploration of her life and career; a bit unfortunate since her involvement may have resulted in something more than the bog-standard showbiz biography that we have ended up with. Kylieís career from TV soap queen as the lovable Charlene in Neighbours to international pop star is covered in a rather routine fashion and features none of the surprises which are surely half the point of celebrity books like this. The trouble is that there is no controversy in Kylieís life that we donít already know about and that which we do is dredged up again as old news and dressed in rather unnecessary rumour and speculation (do we really need to know that Michael Hutchence may have allegedly been in the middle of a bizarre sexual act when he died?) To their credit, the authors donít try and shatter her girl-next-door image and her career is covered in almost bang up-to-date detail, including an extra chapter to take account of her recent success with "Canít Get You Out of My Head" and her fantastic performance at the 2002 Brits Awards. Hopefully the Princess of Pop will find time one day to pen her autobiography, but until then Kylie: Naked is as thorough and an enjoyable account of her life as you could possibly want.-- Jonathan Weir
