Memorable quote: “I’m not trying to be a sex bomb, I am one!”
Together with Madonna, Kylie was the only female solo performer to make number 1 hits in the 80s, 90s and the 21st century. The Australian diva-to-be became world-famous playing Charlene in the television soap Neighbours. More or less by chance it was also discovered that she had a talent for singing. Her first single immediately became a number 1 hit in Australia. Soon after, she broke through internationally. Her performance at the 2000 Olympic Games closing ceremony in Sydney impressed millions of people around the world. The little girl from Australia has been singing for more than 20 years now, and has a trophy case loaded with platinum CDs and albums. Her sexy appearance and ever-changing looks have made her into a real pop icon.
