Rough Justice: There's Nothing Wrong With Kylie

XOLondon and Paul FizzyPop point out that there's an article in the upcoming July issue of Attitude titled "What's Gone Wrong With Kylie."

I thought to myself, Self, this sounds so familiar! Self reminded me that, coincidentally, I just happened to write about this very topic in a post titled "Do We Have Kylie Fatigue" way back in early May.

"Amazing," no?

My two cents on Kylie, X and the whole shebang now that all the dust has settled: great album, but it's likely the record label model—not to mention a rethinking of how what worked promoting an artist in 1988 (or even 2001) isn't gonna fly in 2008—that needs examining more than La Minogue.

Cut the broad a break. She's been doing this for 21 years now. It's been a great run and it's hardly over yet. There'll never be another "Can't Get You Out Of My Head." It's called lightning in a bottle for a reason. Do you see many others who've lasted this long?

They should be so lucky.

    Kylie did her part and made an excellent pop CD. It's the record company that's off the tracks. Their promotional choices have just been astounding.

    The author of that article gave Hard Candy 8.5/10 - so as far as I'm concerned anything he says is entirely irrelevant.

    Oh and Pop Justice really needs to stop ripping you off or at least give you credit every once in a while. It's getting embarrassing. For them.

    I consider everyone must read this.
