SISTERS DOING IT FOR EACH OTHER
WHEN a fellow judge on her UK series, dared to suggest Kylie Minogue couldn’t sing, Dannii Minogue leapt to her big sister’s defence.
Minogue stormed off the set of her UK talent show after Louis Walsh had a go at the elder Minogue, saying his remarks were ‘‘unforgivable’’.
Far from being jealous of Kylie’s success, Dannii has regularly commented that she is proud of what the iconic singer has achieved.
Though it was Dannii who first had the spotlight as one of the stars of the 1980s series she was eclipsed by Kylie’s star-making turn in
and overseas music success.
Despite battling it out in the charts, endless media comparisons and rumours of sibling rivalry, the Melbourne sisters are actually the best of friends. The pair spoofed their supposed feud in
— a one-off TV special to launch Kylie’s most recent album, — with a mock dressing-room catfight.
And Dannii recently told a UK newspaper that Kylie’s cancer battle had brought the two even closer together.
‘‘You can’t come out of that experience and be the same person,’’ she says.
‘‘We are closer now and we spend so much time together. In fact, we’re always with each other.’’
