In collaboration with www.kylieminogue.it, fans tell Swide their special moments with Kylie Minogue. This second article is written by Andrea, the PR of the italian fan club...
Kylie, Kylie, Kylie… The first time I met Kylie it was in 2004, I will never forget it. I first started being her fan with Light Years in 2000, I was too young in 1987, but I do know all of her work from beginning to end. What I’ve always loved about Kylie, apart from her obvious music talent, passion, involvement and professionalism, her career, is her personality.Singing well and being pretty are not enough if you can’ t transmit those qualities to the audience. Today many International artists are like record player, you just need to press play to hear the song, it’s often mechanical, cold and emotionless. What’s left? Maybe a good song if you are lucky.Kylie gives you emotions, energy, passion, feelings that mixed with her interpretation, aphrodisiac beauty and voice lead you to become addicted to Kylie.
I met her for the first at the Rai Studios in Milan at the end of her live promotional tour “I believe in you” lead single of the “Best of” Ultimate Kylie. I was very nervous, too nervous! When I saw her enter the TV studio my heart started beating very fast, I couldn’t swallow! To fight the angst I had to drink some water! Few minutes later we met. There aren’t enough words to describe Kylie: pretty, sweet, sensitive, fun, cordial, human… the list is endless. I spent a total of two hours with her in which she asked me about my work, my dreams, what I liked about her! I was very touched and nervous, but she makes you feel at ease and you never want to leave her. I made a joke: “Dear Kylie I am so happy we met, you are a great star if I had known you were so open I would have brought an entire trolley full of things for you to sign!” … and she laughed. Not knowing her I had brought only a CD, I wasn’t sure I would get an autograph. After 20 minutes the conversation ended… thankfully we met again and it was always like the first time.In Milan, London, Paris… it was like seeing a friend you get to see only a few times a year, a very special friend! This is what I wanted to share of my brief live experience with Kylie, it was great, lovely, happy. Three adjectives that define Kylie as the queen.
Thank you Kylie for being part of our lives, thank you for making us feel this way!
