Happy Birthday, Kylie Minogue

Birthday Lurve goes out this fine day to the amazing Kylie Minogue who is celebrating her 40th birthday today. Here are a few pics of Kylie thru the years from childhood to womanhood which span the course of her blockbuster career:

There aren't many celebs that I feel an actually affinity for like Kylie. Despite the fact that I've never met the woman, I am utterly and completely convinced that she is just as sweet and kind as I imagine her to be from watching her as a fan thruout the years. I distinctly remember picking up the cassette tape of her debut album back in 1988 (mostly because I was intrigued by the blonde with the big smile, the poofy hair spilling out of the top of her hat and the totally 80's sunglasses pin on her blouse -- yes, I sometimes judge albums by their covers) and falling in love with her poppy sound and campy lyrics. I should be so lucky, indeed. I have been a huge fan of Kylie from 88 on, frequently checking the import bins at my fave record shop (the now defunct Harmony House in Detroit) in the days before the Internet made procuring import music as easy as procuring any domestic release. I am anxiously awaiting my chance to see Kylie Minogue live on stage (finally) in London this summer ... but in the meantime, I wanted to send out birthday wishes and all my love to her today. Happy Birthday, Kyles! XOXO [Source]
