Padam! Kylie Minogue is Rolling Stone UK’s next cover star

By Rolling Stone UK

As Rolling Stone UK gears up to release our October/September 2023 issue, it’s our pleasure to introduce our latest cover star: Kylie Minogue.

The Princess of Pop will release her latest album Tension on September 22 and our latest issue sees the singer going deep on the record’s genesis. The star also opens up about the importance of protecting her own privacy, owning her pop icon status and why she’s ready for her Las Vegas residency.

“I’m happiest when I feel like I’ve expressed some deep emotion or thoughts that I’m struggling with and it’s like talking with a friend. Speaking your truth is helpful,” she says of the process of making music. “When I am able to do that, I like to almost paint it instead of just spilling it out. I like to have some poetry with it to not be entirely obvious.”

It comes as she gears up to launch her Las Vegas residency in November at at Voltaire nightclub at The Venetian.

“I’ve performed a couple of times at Vegas, but as part of a tour, and particularly when I did the Showgirl tour in 2004 – at that time we said, ‘oh, this feels like a Vegas show,’” she previously explained at a news conference in Los Angeles.

‘Padam Padam’, the lead single off Tension, reached number eight on the UK chart, making it her first top ten hit since ‘All the Lovers’ in 2010. She is expected to tour UK arenas in 2024.
