Yeah, I know, I’m supposed to be Out-Of-Office and all that jazz, but I’d be remiss if we didn’t bring up the fact that it is her royal fabulousness Kylie Minogue‘s birthday today. SHE IS 43 CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I guess it makes since, considering that my mom bought me the 45 of “I Should Be So Lucky” back in – yikes – the 80s! Anyway to celebrate this day here is the trailer for her 2008 tour DVD in support of the X album which is one of my all time faves. Promise me you’ll at least watch it until 19 seconds in where her guys lift her over their heads while she’s doing the splits. She FINALLY played the US in 2009 and I literally shed a few tears when she descended from the ceiling on a giant skull* disco ball. It was all the lasers making my eyes water, I swear! Anyway she is such a positive presence in the Pop industry and my kind of icon. Happy bday Kylie and may there be many more.
* The aforementioned giant skull disco ball is visible at the 50 second mark. You’re welcome.
