Kylie Minogue and Michael Hutchence
Minogue was his muse and Michael is said to have penned the tune 'Suicide Blonde' after she used the phrase to describe the colour of her dyed hair.

Kylie Minogue and Michael Hutchence

1989-1991

History lesson: In the deep dark past, before portable MP3 players, the Internet and cable TV, Kylie Minogue wasn't cool. In 1989, after two albums of corporate-driven pop, Kylie stood a good chance of being just another footnote in the world of flash-in-the-pan bubblegum music. In 1989, the gay community was not obliged to celebrate all aspects of her Kylieness, though obviously some members of the community chose to do so of their own free will. This was not the Kylie we know today.

Things began to change in 1990 with her album Rhythm of Love. With this, Kylie presented a more adult image, her new look helped by her brand spanking new relationship with INXS lead singer Michael Hutchence. Michael's wild ways were just the tonic needed to turn a cute, bubbly pop star into a more mature pop icon. Hutchence at one time listed his favourite hobby as "corrupting Kylie".

This change in Kylie's image saved her from the obscurity that plagued most of her Stock, Aiken and Waterman contemporaries. The lessons in rock stardom weren't all taught by Hutchence, though. Minogue was his muse and Michael is said to have penned the tune 'Suicide Blonde' after she used the phrase to describe the colour of her dyed hair. The couple split in 1991 after Michael began an affair with model Helena Christensen.

While Kylie has evolved into the cool multi-faceted, ever-evolving star we know today, Hutchence's story is far more tragic. The singer died, aged 37, in 1997. The official cause was listed as suicide, though some still believe his death was unintentional and accidental. Hutchence's ways ultimately proved to be self destructive but his wild streak did, in some small way, help shape and enhance a career. If only, as Kylie has shown, he'd used it in a positive fashion.

Beyonce's dad reveals Jay Z elevator incident and divorce rumours were a 'trick' to boost tour ticket sales MusicFIX Blog by Yasmin 'Yoda' Vought Aug 28 2014 8:40AM

Beyonce and Jay Z have tricked us all to increase their 'On the Run' tour ticket sales....well, according to Bey's dad anyway.

Mathew Knowles was chatting to The Roula & Ryan Show about the Solange Knowles elevator incident when he revealed that it all could have been a big "Jedi mind trick" to up tour ticket sales. WTF?!

Listen to the 104.1 KRBE interview direct from Houston, US in the clip above.

Then watch the elevator scuffle below…

The same could also be said of the recent split rumours that had us all picking Team Bey or Team Jay...so was that all made up too?

After all, the pair looked pretty cozy at this week's VMAs!

Well, if it was all a Jedi mind trick to get us forking out our cash then we have to ask... Master Jay Z, more to say, have you?

Best news ever! Beyonce and Jay Z bringing 'On The Run' tour to Oz MusicFIX Blog by Carmarlena Murdaca Aug 26 2014 2:45PM

This is by far the best thing you'll read all day.

Queen Bey and Jay Z are bringing their 'On the Run' tour Down Under… after Ticketek accidentally posted the show's waiting list to their site. *Cue the mass hysterics*

Although #CampCarter are yet to comment, a well-placed industry source has also confirmed that the couple will be heading to Oz.

Yep, we can't wait to see Blue Ivy have her first koala cuddle.

Earlier this week the power pair shelved rumours they were on the brink of divorce, with a PDA-packed display at the 2014 VMAs. Check that out below!

With speculation they'll split post-tour, let's just hope they're not using our sunny shores as destination divorce.
