Oh we’re just kidding, we’re sure she’s lovely. Anyway, Kylie Minogue has surprised a Sri Lankan theatre group formed in the wake of the 2004 tsunami by visiting them and then fooling around on top of an elephant there.
Now that her cancer seems to be subsiding, Kylie Minogue (CDs) seems to be
trying her best to get back in the public eye. First came the hokey
marriage stories, and then the news that Kylie had been writing a
children’s book version of her life. We’re not sure if Dannii Minogue
having a big romp with a stripper was part of Kylie’s plan, but it
seems to have worked a little bit anyway.
And now Kylie Minogue has stopped by a theatre group she sponsors in
Sri Lanka whilst flying from Europe to Australia. The group, called
Children Of The Sea, is made of 27 youngsters, many of whom were
orphaned in the tsunami. Formed by English director and producer Toby
Gough, Children Of The Sea have been performing a version of
Shakespeare’s Pericles, adapted to the aftermath of the tsunami, which
features songs and dances from Sri Lankan cultures,
fire-eaters, plate-spinners, drummers, acrobats and an elephant, which
Kylie Minogue hopped on and rode down to the beach.
Stating that her interest in Children Of The Sea began after
noticing the children’s "triumph through adversity," Kylie Minogue
"My visit was all too short. Everyone has been so welcoming; I do hope to return one day soon."
