Kylie Ann Minogue, OBE (born 28 May 1968) often known simply as Kylie is an Australian singer, recording artist, songwriter, showgirl, and actress. After beginning her career as a child actress on Australian television, she achieved recognition through her role in the television soap opera Neighbours, before commencing her career as a recording artist in 1987. Her first single, 'Locomotion', spent seven weeks at number one on the Australian singles chart and became the highest-selling single of the decade. This led to a contract with songwriters and producers Stock, Aitken & Waterman. Her debut album, Kylie (1988), and the single 'I Should Be So Lucky', each reached number one in the UK, and over the next two years, her first 13 singles reached the British top ten. Initially presented as a 'girl next door', Minogue attempted to convey a more mature style in her music and public image.
