It's good to see that Kylie Minogue is really back in it, but it seems not everyone is particularly overjoyed with Kylie's return to the spotlight. While I'm sure Dannii Monigue loves her sister and is truly happy for her having beaten cancer, it seems like sibling jealousy is something you can never outlive. According to The Daily Telegraph, Dannii Minogue has written a song about how her Kylie's cancer was difficult for her.
In the world's saddest case of famous sibling syndrome, Minogue appears to be cashing in on her sister Kylie's battle with cancer, releasing a single about how tough life has been for her since her sister announced she was battling the disease in May last year.
Sadly it is not Kylie's pain which Dannii describes in the single So Under Pressure but her own.
"I want the pain to end, I'm so under pressure" are some of the words included in the lyrics.
Minogue has "poured her heart out" describing the turmoil she felt when her sister was diagnosed in May, reported the UK press as the music video hit British television channels yesterday. Minogue admitted she used Kylie's experience to inspire the single.
"I'd spent all year saying 'everything's going to be fine, we're all strong' but then you hear in the song that some days I actually felt like I was in quicksand," she said,
But while it had been a tough year for her, Minogue said the future was looking much brighter now.
"I'm having the best time now. Last year was a pretty tough one," the 34-year-old said.
A particularly tough part of the year for Dannii was being captured on film engaged in a lesbian lapdance romp with a stripper called Jupiter in a London strip club.
We're yet to see a song about that ordeal.
Wow, if you didn't care about Dannii Minogue before, I'm sure this is just the thing to make you start. Oh wait, no it isn't. Sure it must suck to always be in the shadow of your more famous sibling, but please, don't try to cash in on it. That just makes you look all the more desperate. If you really want more attention, just go make to getting lesbian lapdances at strip clubs. I'm sure the world will pay attention then.
