Aside from Britney‘s forthcoming album, there is quite literally no other pop superstar’s return in 2013 more life-stoppingly important than that of Miss Kylie Minogue.
We’ve gotten tiny bits and pieces of news along the way: In February, she inked a management deal with Roc Nation. And over the past year, she’s hit the studio with the likes of Bonnie McKee, Ariel Rechtshaid, Greg Kurstin, Karen Poole and, most recently, Darkchild. (Side note: Brit Brit’s working with Darkchild too. How many e-signatures do we need to collect to make sure that a game-changing duet results from this? I’ll start the petition now.)
Now, we’ve got an important status update—3 entire words worth, actually.
After work, work, working down the sidewalk with her BFF Jake Shears, the ever-ravishing Mizz Kylie Minogue hit the red carpet at LOGO’s NewNowNext Awards, where she was honored with the Dance Floor Hero Award.
And while the show won’t be airing until tomorrow night, the red carpet interviews have already hit the Interwebz—including one with LogoTV, in which she was asked about the progress of the new record: “Almost finished, actually,” she said.
“ALMOST FINISHED, ACTUALLY.”
The reporter immediately launched into those stupid, no1curr rumors about going back into acting, and then everything was ruined. But for a brief moment there, we had it: A glimpse into the future, like a white diamond shining on and on in the not-so-far-away distance.
Do you want to hear her sing…POP? ‘Cause I don’t she wants to stop. Guess who’s back on top?
