Kylie Minogue Considers Intimate “Anti-Tour”

‘Dannii asks, Kylie answers: Part 3’ has been posted, where Dannii Minogue asks a series of questions to her sister Kylie Minogue. The elder Minogue talked about putting together a musical, if she’s considering a duets album, which song of each other’s they would do, doing an anti-tour of non singles or new material and stripped down production, and wanting to be in a great British drama.

“I really like the idea of an anti-tour. The opposite of this,” the 43-year-old said, referring to her ‘Aphrodite’ tour. “I don’t think I can get bigger than this production. It would be really great to do tiny, intimate shows: no dancing, no lights. There’s nothing flash about it. (I’d be) performing songs that would never ever, ever have a hope in hell of being in a show like this. (It would be) only fan-known B-sides or songs that I’ve just done once.”

I absolutely love it,” Dannii told Jess Cartner-Morley. “It’s the weirdest thing, because before I had the baby, when women talked about breastfeeding, I’d be a bit like, whatever, what’s the big deal? Do it or don’t, right? But then you have the baby and every cell in your body is crying out to feed this baby. It’s an incredible thing. I don’t want to stop. It’s a bit disruptive for everybody because you have to allow time to feed him in my schedule. And it means he has to be down at the television studio all day Saturday and all day Sunday, because that’s where I am.”

Dannii Minogue discusses My Story

Dannii Minogue is opening with her new book ‘My Story’ about her time on ‘The X Factor’ which began with a verbal tirade from Sharon Osbourne minutes before her first live show on the ITV program. While Dannii was having her make-up finished, Sharon stormed in and read her the riot act over gossip from the British tabloids. “I tried reasoning with her. ‘Sharon, they are just stupid press stories about a non-existent feud. All I’ve ever done is tell people how much I admire you but they don’t want to print it,'” Dannii explained. “‘Oh, don’t play the innocent,’ Sharon spat. ‘Cos if you wanna play games, Missy, I’ll play… don’t you worry, I’ll play!’ I froze in my chair as furious Sharon came towards me. I turned to look at my friends Terry and Mark, whose mouths had fallen open in horror. Then I caught a glimpse of my make-up girl Karen, who was frozen, holding a mascara wand in mid-air.”
