Kylie Minogue: My gay fans looked after me

"A lot of record companies market directly towards 'the pink pound'. But I never did that. They [my gay fans] kind of adopted me instead." - Kylie Minogue

UK Pink News reports:
Minogue said: "When I started out in music, going from acting to singing, that transition was very successful, but I also got flack for it. Many hurtful things were said. It wasn't easy. I was only 19 and I think the gay audience kinda picked up on that and decided to defend me and adopt me. They [my gay fans] saw I was being criticised for being myself.

Kylie starts her first US tour at the end of next month.
