To think Kylie is an irritating squeaking budgie who can't sing?

Well, am I?

She's done very well for herself, and I respect her as I know she's been through hard times in the past, but she's ubiquitous and annoying.

I loved her when I was a kid but I didn't know any better then.

Anyone else sick of the sight of her?

LOVE her grin

Do the locomotion.....

Yep she is yanbu

MrsMook Wed 30-Oct-13 05:18:10

Another YANBU. A couple of tracks are OK, and her voice holds up sufficiently for a dance track. That doesn't live up to the hype around her. It's astounding how much longevity she's had.

itsonlyapapermoon Wed 30-Oct-13 05:50:45

Yanbu, and I say this as an Aussie. She's done very well for herself but I can't work out her appeal. She's all nasally.

YANBU

And Madonna has a thin little voice that is almost as irritating.

She can't dance either

NewtRipley Wed 30-Oct-13 06:25:43

She can't sing very well, that's true. I like her. I think it's a shame she can't age gracefully though

yy about Madonna

Mind you, Rihanna sings through her hooter too

Canthaveitall Wed 30-Oct-13 06:43:17

Yanbu but hats off to her for pulling it off.

Lazyjaney Wed 30-Oct-13 06:57:56

It was never her voice that attracted the fanz.....

fanjofarrow Wed 30-Oct-13 07:08:48

Laxyjaney She was cute little Charlene from Neighbours before she went all sexpot. I can assure you that as a 10 year old I was immune to the charms of her (then covered) arse. grin

At 35 I am still immune to the charms of her (now bare) arse.

SharpLily Wed 30-Oct-13 07:17:04

Nope, you're spot on. Her face is starting to look really dodgy too - stay away from the needles, Kylie!

natwebb79 Wed 30-Oct-13 07:20:38

I've seen her in an interview admit that she can't dance for toffee and that she knows she hasn't got the best voice in the world. Good luck to her I say. Several of my gay friends adore her, she's a bit of an icon. I was grateful to her that I had a break from Cher for a while when I was house sharing! grin

Blueberrymuffint0p Wed 30-Oct-13 09:42:32

Ive seen her in concert-she put on a spectacular show but her voice was pretty dire. I've also seen an interview with her where she admits to singing like a budgie so I think she'd agree with you!

You can't compare Kylie to Madonna. Whatever you think of Madge, at least she writes her own music.

MidniteScribbler Wed 30-Oct-13 09:46:06

You sent us convicts. We sent you Kylie. Fair trade.

PrimalLass Wed 30-Oct-13 09:46:16

YABU. I love her. This is a brilliant album.

I have a huge girl crush on Dannii too, after watching the Australian Xfactor on youtube.

fanjofarrow Wed 30-Oct-13 09:49:28

LOL, my fella is an Aussie and he says much the same as you, Midnight.

I do admit she puts on a good show! I remember accidentally catching a bit of one of her live shows played on tv after the event. She was singing Especially For You. The 10 year old former fan I once was emerged unexpectedly, and went ''aah, how cute.''

Then I came to my senses and vomited!

mignonnette Wed 30-Oct-13 09:50:49

Not my cup of tea but I did go to school with her tour manager!

UriGHOULer Wed 30-Oct-13 09:54:47

Is she back or summat?

She's rubbish and her selling herself on her prepubescent figure and mannerisms always made me feel a bit queasy.

She's been usurped many times over, she should go and retire and run a donkey sanctuary or something.

whogrewoutoftheterribletwos Wed 30-Oct-13 09:55:40

I heard a story from the guy who shot the 'Can't get you out of my head' video that the reason.there's so many close ups of her arse was because she was so bad at dancing they had to distract from it

But pretty standard can't sing pop fare afaic. Don't single out Kylie - the rest of them are just as bad, generally with only a 5 note range

OMFGShockHorror Wed 30-Oct-13 09:57:50

She's a massive gay icon, cue longevity.

Some of her tunes are good but she is screechy singing live.

CiderBomb Wed 30-Oct-13 10:01:16

The appeal of a Kylie is baffling. Her voice is weak and whiny, admittedly she has had some very catchy pop songs over the years, but vocally she's awful. I'd put Madonna, Britney and Rihanna in the same category, good pop records but terrible voices.

I also don't think she's at all beautiful like she's made out to be. Her sister Dannii is stunning, but I think Kylie is very plain. Huge horsey teeth and a very waxy, over botoxed face.

AnyChippednailvarnishfucker Wed 30-Oct-13 10:03:02

Apparently she's going to be a judge on "The Voice"...

shrieklesoda Wed 30-Oct-13 10:04:02

I hate her voice too, but I can't bring myself to dislike her, she's had some tough times.
