Is Kylie’s bondage act a step too far?

Kylie Minogue“Kylie Minogue wows US audiences with bondage performance” screamed the headlines.

In a bid to crack the American market, which she has surprisingly yet to do, Kylie dressed up as nothing more than a high-class call girl to perform Can’t Get You Out Of My Head on the Us version of Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing With The Stars.

The thing is, shouldn’t Kylie be a bit beyond all this ‘shock factor’ by now? Isn’t this act just a bit ‘ewwww’?

Maybe she feels she has something to prove after her battle with breast cancer, but now she’s into her third decade of a pop career, can’t she just settle for producing good music and not try to fool people with a lot of flim-flammery?

‘Cracking’ America can take years and, although not exclusively, is a young person’s game.

Given that Kylie is unfeasibly successful throughout most of the rest of the world, it surprises me that she feels the need to try and make it in the US.

I also look at the Minogue now and just see a slightly tired once-youthful pop star desperate to keep her star bright.

Kylie, just keep it simple – make good pop songs and people will come.
