Kylie To Play Lesbian Rock Chick
Former Neighbour goes gay for first film role in nine years...
The film takes its name from the 1982 song John Mellencamp, whose song Pink Houses recently featured in an episode Glee. Jack and Diane is currently filming in New York, and is set for release next year.
Kylie’s previous film roles include playing an absinthe fairy in fellow Aussie Baz Luhrman’s Moulin Rouge, and high-kicking Lieutenant Cammy White in much-derided video game adaptation Street Fighter.
In other Kylie news, the star admitted in an interview with Out magazine that Lady GaGa’s success made her rethink the direction for her latest album, Aphrodite. "Lady GaGa dropped a meteor in the middle of the pop landscape – which is amazing. But it meant that we had to take that into account. It wouldn't have made any sense to go down that road to try to fit in.”
The 42-year-old also revealed that negative critiques still get her down, even after more than 20 years in showbiz. “It cuts like a knife if I read a bad review. But in the end, how the album is received by the press won't make any difference to me, I'd still come back.”
