Madonna: mutton dressed as lamb?

Date

Kylie Minogue is 'perplexed' by Madonna and her inappropriate outfit choices.

Australia's pop diva Kylie Minogue has poked fun at Madonna for the cheerleader outfit the 53-year-old has worn on stage during her world tour.

Minogue, 44 - who herself wears a revealing black web dress in the music video for her latest single Timebomb - was apparently taking a swipe at Madonna for dressing too young.

Minogue's comment, which came after some prompting, occurred on Friday when she appeared on Fashion Police, the catty American chat show co-hosted by comedienne Joan Rivers and Kelly Osbourne.

Rivers showed a picture of Madonna dressed as a cheerleader and asked Minogue for her opinion.

"No - just no," Minogue said, groaning.

Rivers, picking up the signal, said: "Madonna, stop it already, you're 108. Madonna as a cheerleader? What school does she go to? Our Lady of Osteoporosis? She looks like she flunked 10th grade 48 times."

Rivers then asked Minogue's opinion about an incident this month in which Madonna flashed a nipple at a concert in Rome.

"Was she caught up in the moment? Was it premeditated? Who knows?" Minogue said.

"I think it's got people more perplexed than excited by it."

The two stars have a history of rivalry. In a 2000 awards show Madonna wore a T-shirt emblazoned with the words "Kylie Minogue" and, in 2010, Minogue put out publicity shots of herself in a Jean-Paul Gaultier conical bra of the kind Madonna made famous in her 1990 Blonde Ambition days.

Rivers referred to the competition between "the two great pop divas".

"Competition. I don't know, but I grew up such a fan of her," Minogue said. "I don't even care how we're in the same sentence. It's quite good for me."

Minogue is in the United States to promote Timebomb, which marks her 25 years in the music industry.

  • Mutton? More like a flyblown sheep carcass.

    • The woman flashed her nipple at a concert last week in Istanbul. She really needs to grow up.

    • I'll bet you get all embarrassed when a woman breast-feeds too, Vinnie. You're the one who needs to grow up. A bit of nudity is to be expected at concerts these days.

    • Breast feeding and flashing at a concert aren't the same thing. I can't believe you're trying to draw similarities between the two.

      I'm all for Katy Perry or Rihanna getting their kit off at a concert, but when a grandmother aged woman starts doing it, there has to be a line drawn.

    • 53 is hardly "grandmother aged". Most people don't become grandparents until much later and even if Madonna had a grandchild, so what, her body still rocks! Just because you don't like seeing Madonna doesn't mean a lot of men don't - plenty love seeing her, even at 53. More power to her. No-one tells Mick Jagger to quit gyrating his pelvis because he's "too old now".

      When people go to concerts they expect to hear music/be entertained. Nudity should not be part of the program. If you want nudity with your entertainment then go see a sex show, or watch porn for those who don't like to leave their house.

    • Lol what? If you have a kid at 25 (hardly early) and your kid does the same, 53 is easily old enough to be a grandparent.

      Sounds like someone isn't cool with being 'grandmother aged'? Hehe.

    • @ Grannie:

      I'm cool with being a grannie (though I am not one yet), just sick of people telling people of a certain age what they should or shouldn't do.

    • According to Wikipedia, Madonna has sold 300 000 000 million records making her the highest grossing female act of all time. Kylie has sold 68 000 000 – not a small amount but statistically 22% of Madonna’s tally. If KM was taking a swipe at Madge, she’s got a hide. KM is barely known in the USA, Madonna’s market is worldwide and as Clive James once pointedly said, “You are not famous until you are famous in America.” True – so KM – keep your mouth closed.
