Over Kylie Minogue
Armed with an appealing pop style that mesmerizes the masses release after release, Kylie Minogue is a dancefloor icon in the tradition of Madonna. This Australian-born actress turned pop performer has had a series of international hits since she first scored with an unforgettable 1987 cover of Little Eva's "The Loco-Motion." Currently sporting a slick, fresh take on disco trimmed with self-assured and seductively delivered lyrics, Minogue made a triumphant stateside comeback in 2002 with Fever. Songs like "Can't Get You Out of My Head" and "Love At First Sight" sailed to the top of the charts, providing strong testimony to this kittenish pixie's staying power. In 2005, Minogue was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent the usual treatment of surgery and chemo, but that was punctuated by a few emotional stage performances amended to preserve the diminutive singer's strength. After a few years' hiatus, Minogue returned to recording in 2007.
