I should be so lucky to look as good as Kylie
Kylie Minogue is 50 years of age. It is shocking news in one way because the ageless Australian songstress doesn't look to be a day over 35.
Pictures from her birthday bash this week show her in figure-hugging gold looking fresh-faced, wrinkle-free, elegant and utterly glamorous.
But her big birthday news is also slightly shocking in another way, because she seems to have been around (and indeed spinning around) forever.
In fact, I was a wee bit shocked to discover Kylie was only 50.
It just seems an awful long time since she was in dungarees in Ramsey Street.
