Kylie: ‘gravity has taken hold of my face’

Kylie Minogue admits she forgets her age and wants to dig out her famous hot pants

Kylie Minogue has admitted in a revealing interview that just like the rest of us, she too sees the effects of gravity when she looks in the mirror.

The 44-year-old said, “I am not going to lie about this. There are lots of times I look in the mirror and I see that gravity has taken hold." Kylie's stunning platinum blonde make over © Elle / Cuneyt Akeroglu

"Or suddenly see my face on a phone or on Skype and it’s like a Spielberg special effect and you just scream, ‘Who is that?’," she added.

The singer, whose face appears line-free, fresh and youthful on the accompanying cover of Elle Magazine, added that the time for little gold hot pants is over. “Sometimes I forget I am 44 and I think, ‘I must get those hot pants out of retirement’.


“And some mornings I look in the mirror and I see 94 not 44. That is the reality before the make-up. And midriff tops are definitely out for good.”

Kylie is celebrating a quarter of a century as a top pop star, beginning her career in 1987 at just 19. She’s also launched a fashion book that shows off her biggest style hits and has been looking stunning on the promo trail (even stopping for a chat with our pals omg!).Kylie admitted that pre-make up, even her celebrity face shows the signs of time passing © Elle / Cuneyt Akero …

And though she doesn’t enjoy seeing herself age, Kylie insists she hasn’t had any work done yet. “‘I am not against surgery, I haven’t gone down that route yet, I don’t know whether I will but I am not against it. The only time it isn’t amazing is when it’s not done well or someone takes it too far.”


She added: “We put make-up on every day, we tint, pluck, wax, we do anything to make ourselves look as good as we can and I think it’s pointless being hypocritical about something that if it’s done well can be really good.” Kylie had a fashion hit at her book signing in Harrods © Elle / Cuneyt Akeroglu

Of course, the rest of us mere mortals think she looks fab, and reckon those hot pants could totally have another airing.
