I ask visitors to think about the way they would behave to the real Kylie and not to touch her. —a Madame Tussaud's spokesman to The Mirror (London), after the underwear on the Minogue waxwork had to be replaced due to excessive groping

Can't get her out of your head

Will the real Kylie Minogue please stand up? Fever, her best album by miles, is purposefully devoid of personality, slave to the rhythm is a dancer. It's a neat special effect that works even better in this backwater: She can brandish disco-diva vacancy more effectively here than in her biggest market, the U.K., where the tabloids muddy the context daily (News of the Worldonce reported that she was an alien). But Feverhas already sold over 2 million copies worldwide, and the colonization of our virgin territory can't be far off. She's made it through the wilderness. Her last name, she's been known to remind tongue-tied Americans, rhymes with vogue; her first comes from the Aboriginal word for boomerang.
