Dannii Minogue - Biography

 

Danielle Jane "Dannii" Minogue (born 20 October 1971) is an Australian singer and actress. Minogue rose to prominence in the early 1980s for her roles in the Australian television talent show, Young Talent Time and the soap opera Home and Away, before commencing her career as a pop singer in the early 1990s. Minogue achieved early success with hits such as "Love and Kisses" and "This is It", though by the release of her second album, her popularity as a singer had declined, leading her to concentrate on other fields such as television presenting. The late 1990s saw a brief return to music after Minogue reinvented herself as a dance artist with "All I Wanna Do", her first number one UK Club hit. In 2001, Minogue further returned to musical success with the release of her biggest worldwide hit to date, "Who Do You Love Now?", while her subsequent album, Neon Nights, became the most successful of her career. In the UK, she has achieved twelve consecutive number one dance singles, becoming the best-performing artist on the UK Upfront Club Chart. Minogue is currently a judge on The X Factor and Australia's Got Talent.

Minogue was born in Melbourne, Australia, to Ron Minogue, an Australian accountant of Irish ancestry, and Carol Jones, a dancer from Maesteg, Wales. She is the youngest of three children; her sister, Kylie, is a pop singer, and her brother, Brendan, is a news cameraman in Australia.
Minogue began her career as a child on Australian television. From the age of seven, she appeared in several soap operas, including Skyways and The Sullivans. In 1981, she joined the successful weekly music programme Young Talent Time. Minogue recorded her first solo recordings for the programme, including a cover version of Madonna's hit single "Material Girl"; during this time, she also performed live at several sold-out nationwide concert tours. In 1988, Minogue departed from Young Talent Time to continue her acting career, appearing as the rebellious tomboyish teenager Emma Jackson on the soap opera Home and Away. Minogue remained on the programme for only a year. She proved to be popular among Australian audiences when she was nominated for a "Silver Logie" as the Most Popular Actress on Australian television.
In September 1988, Minogue released her own fashion range entitled Dannii. She became interested in fashion design while appearing on Young Talent Time. Minogue had designed the clothing she had worn on the show, and the positive response from the audience resulted in her releasing her one line. Minogue's debut line Dannii sold out across Australia in ten days, and was followed by three additional summer lines in 1989.

At age 9, Minogue signed a recording contract with Australian-based Mushroom Records in January 1989. Her first album, Dannii, was released the following year and reached number twenty-four on the Australian albums chart. Outside Australia, the album was released in 1991, under the title Love and Kisses, and became a top ten hit. Minogue's debut single "Love and Kisses" peaked at number four on the Australian singles chart and was certified gold. In the UK, the song reached the top ten on the singles chart. August 1991: Embarked on an extensive promotional tour of South East Asia, including Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taipei and the Philippines.
Minogue released Love and Kisses and..., a re-issue of her debut album, in April 1992. The album, a collection of dance songs, comprised tracks and remixes from Love and Kisses. It peaked at number forty-two on the UK albums chart, and sold nearly 60,000 copies. Several remixes by producer and DJ Steve "Silk" Hurley were successful in European dance clubs. She credits these remixes for providing her with a "new image and sound to work with" on future releases. Also that year, Minogue made her feature film debut in Secrets, which co-starred Noah Taylor. The film revolved around five Australian teenagers who become stuck in the basement of a hotel in an attempt to see The Beatles. The film was not well received by audiences or critics, with Minogue's performance being described as "not all that convincing".
Minogue released her second album Get into You, which included the songs "Show You the Way to Go", "This Is It" and "This Is the Way", in October 1993. The album contained uptempo dance tracks and mature vocals, but despite her past chart success, failed to make the British top fifty. In mid-1994, Minogue returned to television as a presenter, co-hosting Channel 4's morning show The Big Breakfast in the UK. In 1995, Minogue released the singles "Rescue Me" and "Boogie Woogie", a collaboration with dance act Eurogroove. Released only in Japan, both songs reached number one on the Japanese singles chart. She began recording her third album in 1995; however, Minogue and her record label, Mushroom Records, parted ways in late 1995 following a contract disagreement.
In 1990 Dannii Minogue was asked by Queen Elizabeth II to perform at the Royal Variety Show; she sang her latest release "Success".

The album did not perform as well as her debut, peaking outside of the top fifty in Australia and the UK. After a brief hiatus from recording music, Minogue released her third album Girl in September 1997. The album, comprised of dance and electronic music, produced three number one club songs in the UK. In March 2003, she released her fourth album Neon Nights. Inspired by dance music from the 1980s, the album was certified in gold in the UK. It produced four singles, all of which became number one on the UK Dance Charts. In 2007, she released heavily inspired by 80s dance music studio album, Club Disco. The album had six singles, "You Won't Forget About Me", "Perfection", "So Under Pressure", "I Can't Sleep at Night", "He's the Greatest Dancer" and "Touch Me Like That".

Minogue and McMahon were married for less than two years and divorced in 1995. Referring to the divorce, Minogue said that it was her "biggest regret and biggest downfall". In October 1995, Minogue posed nude in the Australian edition of Playboy magazine. Commenting on the reason she posed nude, Minogue said she "just had a marriage break-up. Most women go to the hairdressers – I did Playboy. I chose the photographer, the location, what I did or didn't want to wear and everything else about the pictures. I found it a really liberating, empowering experience". The edition featuring Minogue sold out in under four days and became one of the best-selling editions in Australia.
In October 1999, Minogue became engaged to French Canadian Formula One driver Jacques Villeneuve, but their relationship ended in 2001.

The baby is due in July 2010 and Minogue revealed the news after receiving the all clear at her 12 week scan.

 

Dannii Minogue - Personal Quotes

 

"I can't wait for my new album to be released, it's in the style of hot house disco. It will bring other elements to my sound, but keeping in the groove that I found with Neon Nights. I've been inspired by the pumping tunes of DJs working in Ibiza, Miama and Hot House destinations. I have worked with some of the same producers as Neon Nights, and some new ones. My main aim is heavy-fat-bass-lines, I love that thumping feeling. Hopefully I have topped Neon Nights, which was made with lots of love."

"I think it is great. I've already had my boobs done as well as Botox. As I get older I'll have more things done."
