Kylie Signs To Roc Nation


None of us saw this coming! Earlier today Roc Nation confirmed Kylie had joined their register of artists that currently includes Rihanna and her replacement, Rita Ora. It was shocking for a number of reasons. Firstly, because Kylie "retired" from music to concentrate on acting less than a month ago and, let's face it, the pop legend had all but admitted that was over trying to make it in America. After I got my head around the move, I started to get excited. Jay Z made a non-entity like Ms Fenty a star, so he should be able to do great things with the Australian superstar.

And the prospect of her working with American producers instead of the same old, boring cunts in Britain is exciting. "Timebomb" was the absolute nadir of her career, so the only way is up. I doubt they will push an urban sound on her but if they do, at least she'll get access to a better rapper than Mims (below). And to be honest, I love Kylie's previous attempts at capturing a more American sound. Body Language is one of my favourite albums of all time! Anyway, we don't have long to wait until we hear the next step in the evolution of Dannii's slightly more successful sister.

Billboard announced that a new single is on the way in a couple of weeks. Join me in praying it's a not a "Timebomb" remix featuring Juicy J and 2 Chainz!

Hard Candy was bad enough the first time.

I'm just glad Dannii has a new career in dairy-related trampoline stunts to literally fall back on. At least SHE knows how to keep her dignity unlike (not so) special K.

Needless to say, I can't wait to hear the results. Quite how she can top All I See Is You is her biggest challenge since pulling off pleats and army camouflage in a serious acting role.

Slightly off topic but is there a reason why Dannii didn't release 'Love Fight' as a single? Can anyone tell me?

R.I.P to the Kylie you used to see. Wait for her to sing all the songs Rihanna doesn`t choose for her albums, that is, she`s Rita with 40yo. Exciting!

^ Please no. One Rita Ora is appalling enough. I'm hoping they don't send her down the "Singing over 3rd rate copies of Calvin Harris stuff" either.

This just seems a bit of a thirsty move and I can't see it ending well.
