Pop princess Kylie Minogue may be busy preparing for this year’s Sydney Mardi Gras, but she found the time to celebrate the festivities by appearing at a VIP party.
The night began the weekend celebrations for K25 – Kylie’s 25 year career in the music industry.
She will be performing a 20 minute set, a medley of hits from across her discography, on 3 March at Mardi Gras in Sydney, one of the world's most famous LGBT events.
Communications manager Katie Hoskins was there at the party, and said she saw Kylie meet the fans outside and sign autographs.
Other celebrities attended, including Australia’s Next Top Model judge Charlotte Dawson and Kath and Kim star Magda Szubanski.
The speakers were Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras CEO Michael Rolik, Board Chair Pete Urmson, and Australian politician Bruce Notley-Smith.
In her announcement, Kylie said: 'I am coming home for Mardi Gras this year! I simply cannot wait, and it's going to be a beautiful way to celebrate 25 years of this relationship.'
This is the first time the pint-sized popstar has performed at the Sydney Mardi Gras for fourteen years.
Hoskins told Gay Star News: ‘She performed here in 1998 and everyone in the community kept hoping every year Kylie would come back. This was the year, and we are thrilled to have her’.
While Hoskins would not reveal any of the surprises to happen during Saturday’s performance, she promised it would be a show to remember.
