So I was reading MX on the way home, as you do, and I came to the bit about the recent Q Awards in Britain.
Ian Brown, former singer in what I regard as one of the greatest bands ever, The Stone Roses, had just received an award. Inexplicably, so too had Kylie Minogue.
Brown allegedly had this to say about Minogue:
"I don't think she's cute. I don't think she's good-looking. Her music's rubbish - she makes music for little kids.
"I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm putting her down, but there's a lot of great minds out there making music and she's not one of them."
This is truly one of those moments where, one would think, that the music media turns and says, "Hey, that kid's right. The Empress truly has no clothes on," before turning on this media darling in a spectacular bloodbath of stinging criticism and unmitigated censure.
Minogue somehow gets away with particularly grievous musical crimes against humanity, and I'm tipping that her next album, due in November, is one of the world's truly memorable musical disasters. Or at least holding my breath.
Incidentally, for the pair of you who regularly read this blog, I do plan to finish off my gratuitous character assassination of Minogue soon. Just getting around to it, is all.
