Kylie Minogue is the queen of brand revival, and now she's ready for her biggest physical transformation thus far. Kylie, now 40, has been known to crank up the spice on her stage costumes, as well as for pushing the raciness boundaries on photo shoots, but she has now decided to retire her sexy image.
"It's difficult to age with dignity in the pop business, but I'd like to think I've managed it so far," Kylie told Britain's Easy Living magazine. "But I won't be wearing hotpants any more!"
Kylie, now 40, swears she won't be giving up the stage -- she intends to perform until she's 60 -- but she says it's time to be responsible and dress more her age. Not only that, but the Australian singer says she wants to turn shift her pop-style music in more of a jazz direction.
"A while ago I sang I Should Be So Lucky as a romantic torch song on Later... With Jools Holland (U.K. TV show). Jools accompanied me on the piano, and I can imagine working like that," said Kylie.
While most people her age would be best to hide their bodies to disguise sagging, Kylie shows no signs of wear and tear. The gallery shows how incredibly well she's maintained her physique.
By realizing that just because she can, doesn't mean she should, Kylie could be teaching the public (and other celebs) a really valuable lesson.
As she shows in the images of her white pea coat, sophisticated can be very sexy too!
