Kylie Complaint Strikes Bum Note

Kylie criticised rival pop starlets for exposing too much flesh this week, telling a German magazine 'when I see some of these hip-hop videos I'm as horrified as my grandmother and think, 'Oh God, what gross things are they doing there-"

Her complaint prompted several British tabloids to call her a hypocrite though the Standard didn't seem to fussed, instead publishing an ecstatic feature hailing her bum as 'the prime example of the perfect bottom'.

"What British men want is something relatively small and pert," psychologist Dr Linda Papadopolous told the paper.

"What you see in Kylie is also an ageless bottom- it could be mistaken for a 14 year old's."

Red-blooded NME hack Piers Martin appeared to agree, branding her 'the most exciting pop star in the universe' in this week's issue.

"To dismiss her as another manufactured MTV entity is to miss the point," he gushed.

"She is pop personified, a beautiful, living disco hologram onto whom we mere mortals are encouraged to project our wildest fantasies."
