And on she goes. The years might pass but Kylie will only look younger, keep wearing smaller and smaller hotpants and continue pumping out ever more hyperactive pop music. Even when she’s done little more than eat at The Ivy for two years, she attracts more interest than all the mini-Britneys can hope for in a lifetime.
It’s good to know there’s some things in life you can rely on. And after Dance Kylie, Dodgy Madonna Kylie and Ill-advised Indie Kylie, the pint-sized Princess of Pop has returned to what she knows best. ‘Spinning Around’ is made of the same fizzing, giddy disco-pop that made Kylie famous in the first place and will thrill gay discos everywhere. Co-written by (yikes!) Paula Abdul, it has gloriously little substance and little worth remembering above the glittery, hi-NRG chorus where Kylie reminds us all that she’s back, back, back (“I’m spinning around, get out of my way”). Indie chancers throw away your hair slides and take note. This is the sound of someone enjoying what they do. Does it scare you?
