Kylie Minogue's lesbian crush
This article is from 2008.
Kylie Minogue says she has considered becoming gay, and has a crush on late American actress Tallulah Bankhead.
Kylie Minogue has considered becoming a lesbian.
The Australian-born pop star jokingly claims she has thought about experimenting with her sexuality because there are no men in her life.
She also admits to having a crush on late, rumoured bisexual actress Tallulah Bankhead.
Kylie is quoted by Britain's The Sun newspaper as saying: "I'd go gay for her. She was a fascinating and exotic woman. There was so much to admire about her.
"She lived life to the full, maybe a little too fully. I want to release the inner Tallulah in me. God knows I can't get a man - so maybe I should cross over."
American actress Bankhead had a critically lauded but tragic career, starring in films such as 'Devil and the Deep' and 'Tarnished Lady' in the early 30s.
She died aged 66 in 1968, surrounded by controversy over her sexual affairs and drug use.
Kylie's last publicised relationship was with French actor Olivier Martinez.
The couple broke up after four years together in February 2007.
Kylie has a strong gay following.
In a recent poll of 3,000 gay men by website gaygolddiggers.com, she was voted second in a list of gay icons, behind soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Kylie's 'KylieX2008' tour will resume in November, taking in dates across South America and Australasia.
