Kylie Minogue's Copacabana cover

Kylie Minogue is reportedly set to release a cover of Barry Manilow's hit 'Copacabana'.

The Australian singer - who has been performing the upbeat track during her 'KylieX2008' tour - is planning to record the track for release, but is said to have angered the lyricist Bruce Sussman by asking for the woman's name in the song to be changed from Lola to Kylie.

Kylie wanted the lyric, "Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl" to be changed, but Bruce refused.

A source told gossip website MSNBC: "Bruce was furious. He told Kylie, 'No way. Her name's Lola. Not Lola Minogue, not Kylie.' "

Kylie's sister Dannii recently revealed she wants to vocally collaborate with Kylie again in the future.

Dannii said: "I definitely want to do a duet, it's just about finding the right thing and the right time. I miss singing so I am planning to do some more next year. I did a duet with Kylie on her tour last year - we sang 'Kids' which was amazing. Every time we watch it back, we fall about laughing, especially when we are swinging each other around because we used to do that on roller skates when we were young."
