Even though I don't have one in my state, I know a guy who works as a DJ in a gay bar interstate and he put a post up saying he played the whole album last night - icon.It’s Kylie new alberm day and I’ve not heard anything in any of the bay bars I’ve been in tonight. Not even Padam. I hate 2023.
I made the original comment. I agree it’s reductive to frame it all around her age. I guess maybe I worded that badly. What I mean is more in line with what you say here. At 55 she’s vital, current, having genuine global hits, conquering the streaming age and is arguably at the height of her powers at 35 years odd years into her career. All the while looking fabulous and projecting grace and confidence. And she seems to finally be getting the recognition of her clear talent both as a performer and as a songwriter and artist. It’s inspiring (as well as clearly sexist and ageist to some degree that she seems to have to earn that more than others). Her achievements are truly remarkable. Nobody else is really doing it like her. And she bloody well deserves it.Not necessarily but what it does it have to be a taboo topic? It is remarkable that a 55 year woman in the show biz is able to disarm with joy and awe.
Kylie is breaking that ceiling; it is promising for future female singers and entertainers .
