Kylie Minogue Slept in Lavish LA House Twice

19 Oct 2012

Kylie Minogue has revealed she purchased a lavish house in Los Angeles in 1999 when she thought her music career had reached its conclusion but only slept in it twice after relaunching her pop career in the UK

Kylie Minogue once bought a house in Los Angeles, but only ever slept in it twice.

The singer worried her career was over in 1999 so decided to move to California. However, it didn't last long as she was approached by British record label Parlophone to release Spinning Around - which became her first UK top ten hit in six years.

She said: ''It was so quiet for me that I though, 'Maybe that's it?' So I bought a house in Los Angeles, because it was this weird middle ground - it wasn't Australia, It wasn't England, and it was fun, like a grown up's playground."

''So I bought this house and I must have stayed there twice and then I signed with Parlophone. Then, well ... Boom Parlophone and Spinning Around, let's just say I sold the house!''

The 2000 single may have given Kylie's career a huge boost, but it was her next track, Can't Get You Out of My Head in 2001 which put her back on the top of the pop world

She added in an interview with UK station BBC Radio 2: ''Spinning Around  was a golden moment. It was the Millennium, it was back in the most shiny, exuberant way. Then with Can't Get You Out of My Head on the next album, the sound, the video, this time it wasn't golden, it was ice cool, sharp and futuristic, and it took it to a new place, and with the reach of that song to another level.''
