It’s kind of hard to dislike Kylie Minogue. She makes fantastic pop music and has done so for several decades now, does a lot of charity work, overcame cancer, works damn hard and is adorably pint-sized. She’s great – even though The Abbey Road Sessions was a terrible idea. In any case, I’m a fan, which is why it was exciting when Jay-Z announced this week that he’d signed her to Roc Nation.
From Jay’s Life & Times blog:
“Roc Nation would like to welcome Aussie singer, recording artist, songwriter, actress and designer Kylie Minogue to the family. In a career now spanning 25 years, Kylie has released 11 studio albums, two live CDs, eight live concert DVDs, a greatest hits double album, and multiple video packages. She has released over 50 hit singles worldwide, including the Grammy-winning Come Into My World, and has sold more than 68 million albums worldwide. Needless to say, we’re excited to have Kylie join the Roc fam.”
It might seem like an odd pairing, but Jay-Z is known for his eclectic tastes, and this could be amazing. Maybe Kylie will go hip hop! Maybe Jay-Z will become a gay icon! The opportunities are endless.
