Kylie Minogue: Her Beginnings as the Princess of Pop Music (Watch Video)

Written by Shane Smith, Editor, Stonewall Gazette

It was a year ago this month that TV host, producer and actor Paul Ryan (pictured at left) died from leukemia at the age 69. Ryan, hosted the Here TV series, "Legends From Here." It featured interviews with many of the biggest names in Hollywood such as Rock Hudson and Shelley Winters.

As a Kylie Minogue fan, I was so glad to find this clip from the show where Ryan interviewed the "fresh faced, record-breaking" Australian pop singer. The year is 1989 and she is ONLY 21 and already breaking music chart records around the world by this time in her life! Kylie Minogue, of course, has gone on to be a fantastic ally for the global gay community and has earned her rightful place as a Gay Icon.

Beginnings as the Princess of Pop

Let's take a trip back to 1989! Kylie released her second studio album, "Enjoy Yourself." The singles were: "Hand on Your Heart", "Wouldn't Change A Thing", "Never Too Late", and her cover of Little Anthony and the Imperials smash hit of the 1950's, "Tears on My Pillow."

I like them all but decided to post the music video for "Wouldn't Change A Thing." It was a top 10 hit in some markets and a Top 20 on most of the music charts around the world!
