Disco, Kylie, Minogue, Needs
@acesigma06 @acesigma06 This is a gay (non-controversial) anthem. Gay is always good and we gays should never be locked up!. Statement 55 clearly never understood the meaning of this song and should be locked up for that reason alone! As a gay man (to quote Emmett Honeycutt) my flame is burning brighter than ever thanks to this song!!!

i aint gay and i think its great song!
Sehr ” Schwufig ” kann man auch noch sagen !! Sehr süß !! Und so !!
This is the GAYEST SONG EVER. And I mean that in the absolute MOST complimentary way =)
@Iceblooo It’s too bad. Kylie was, and continues to be overlooked here in America, because I think she has
every bit the star power and entertainment value as some of the lesser talented, but more widely known female musicians like Mandy Moore or Jessica Simpson.
should have been
@Iceblooo Someone like Liza Minelli or Fantasia being gay icons I get that. , They aren’t beautiful in the pop culture sense, but then they’re not being sold on their looks, and I don’t think that a female singer’s attractiveness matters to the gay community to begin with. It’s usually the power of the voice thats the selling point.
@Iceblooo Kylie markets herself the same way that Cher does here in America. They may not overtly market themselves to gays in their print and television ads, but their shows push the boundaries of camp. This I never understood, because it’s not like she never had the sex appeal. She was especially hot looking in the 1990’s.
@Iceblooo If I recall correctly, I don’t think that Kylie initially marketed herself to the gay community like she did in later years and currently today. During her S.A.W. days, she was marketed as the sweet, girl next door. When she broke from that label, she went for the bonafide sex symbol route, trying to appeal to the adult men and women crowd. There she seemed to sort of languish for most of the 90’s. I think it was during her resurgance in 2000 that she began marketing to the gays.
@jstephenj I don’t really agree with you. Lady Gaga has embraced the gay community far more than anyone else. EVERY TV interview she gave in the US in her first two years of fame she stated her support for the gay community/ Kylie never really talked about her support for gay people in her mainstream interviews. Gaga is the biggest selling artist in the world & in the US so supporting gays is not such a big deal anymore however I think BEING a gay artist is still a problem for the US audiences.
@jstephenj I agree with you up to a point but no one has played to the gay audiences and defended the gays and supported the gays like Lady Gaga and she is the biggest selling artist in the world including the US. I think Kylie just has a bad promotions person. She doesn’t need much promotion in the UK and Europe so her stuff sells there without much help but in the markets where she needs help her promotion is terrible.
Kitsh & Camp ! Love it, great video!
Am I the only one that thinks this is cool??
I love it. It’s catchy and kitschy! <3
It’s a turd, but it’s solid. Coming from a Kylie fan.
Love the song but this mix is rubbish and the video is a bit naff. Can’t wait to see Kylie on the 25th!
@felixn65 You suppose the cancer might have had something to do with how she’s been poorly promoted in America? It’s not like Americans aren’t capable of warming up to recording artists who’ve had bouts with cancer. Ask Sheryl Crow.
@felixn65 I have to think that it’s because she’s hard to package to middle America, therefore American record labels do a half assed job in marketing her albums. Her X was a well done effort, and the only song they bothered to push was ‘Wow’ — one of the album’s more weaker songs. Speakerphone and Like a Drug should have been the headlining numbers promoted on American radios IMO.
@felixn65 She’s shown alot more polish than J. Lo, B. Spears and J. Simpson in my opinion, and yet despite her success elsewhere, Kylie is largely ignored in my neck of the woods. It’s a shame because it’s not like her songs are any worse than the other 3 I mentioned, and American record labels always shove them down our throats.
@jstephenj However, in one of her more recent interviews she lamented over her inability to break through into N. America. Aside from Locomotion and ICGYOMH, she’s barely a blip on anyone’s radar. It’s not like she lacks the talent either.
@felixn65 Look, I’m not saying her more recent tunes aren’t entertaining. I’m just pointing out that she’s more than capable of delivering more in-depth tunes without going the full-blown Lady Gaga route. I found her opening number during the 2000 Olympics where she did a rendition of Waltzing Matilda/Celebration to be particularly moving, and I loved her duet with Paul McCartney a few years back. I think those type of performances can cross over into other demographics.
@jstephenj Well, I bite the bullet and confess that Impossible Princess, musically speaking, is better than other pop-oriented (or gay-oriented) albums of Kylie’s. Isnt it more “mature”, as it were, don’t you think? Nevertheless, let Kylie be free to do as she wants.
@felixn65 @felixn65 If she produced indie numbers like the ones in Impossible Princess I think she’d have more leeway here in the States. Most Americans don’t know who Kylie Minogue is, and numbers like your ‘Disco Needs You’ ‘Did It Again’ and ‘Dancing Queen’ only pidgeonholes her as camp. It’s too bad because she’s produced some good tunes that deserves to be recognized too.

@felixn65 She actually showed some flashes of brilliance with her Impossible Princess album in 94, but has since then taken the kitsche route with her cheesy outfits and elaborate tours that border on showtunes. I am a fan of her music, but I tend to keep it on the downlow because of numbers like this. I find it alot easier to recommend artists like Dido, Shakira and Sheryl Crow to my friends than I do Kylie Minogue. Not knocking her as an artist, but it’s just my 2 cents.
@felixn65 I realize that there are gay demographics in the world, but I just find it odd when talented musicians specifically gear their music to gay sensibilities when they’re more than capable of branching out into larger fanbases.
