Kylie Ann Minogue was born on 28 May, 1968 in Melbourne Australia. Kylie's acting career began early, but it was her role as Charlene in the Australian soap Neighbours (1985) which established Kylie as an international star.
Kylie's singing career began purely by accident when a record company executive heard Kylie's rendition of Little Eva's 1962 hit "The Loco-Motion." And as they say the rest is history.
But what made her even more of a success is when she made history by having more than 20 consecutive top ten hits in the UK. She also has her own lingerie brand called Love Kylie.
Currently dating and rumored to be engaged to Olivier Martinez, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and cancelled her tour of Australia (May 2005).
