Kylie Minogue Tells ELLE UK How Insecure She Is About Her Looks

The Australian pint-sized pop star, 44, has graced her seventh cover of ELLE UK and opened up about the way she views herself at this age. While she still looks banging for her age and definitely takes care of herself, she explained to the high fashion Mag that things are not always as they seem on the surface, especially when it comes to her looks.

“I am not going to lie about this. There are lots of times I look in the mirror and I see that gravity has taken hold. Or suddenly see my face on a phone or on Skype and it’s like a Spielberg special effect and you just scream, “Who is that?”,’ she tells Elle.

She has been making music for 25 years and acknowledges that age does play a factor in how she views herself. “Some mornings I look in the mirror and I see 94 not 44. That is the reality before the make-up. And midriff tops are definitely out for good.”
It is refreshing to hear she doesn’t feel pressured to always recapture the younger glory days of her fashionable self. While those gold hot pants caused a stir about 8 years ago, being a woman in her mid 40s she knows that some things have to change, and that’s ok. It doesn’t make her any less beautiful, in fact it makes her classy knowing that her beauty is not defined by an article of clothing, but by her essence and intelligence.
She also mentions her views on plastic surgery saying although she hasn’t gone under the knife, she wouldn’t rule it out.
“I don’t know whether I will but I am not against it. The only time it isn’t amazing is when it’s not done well or someone takes it too far.,” she said. “We put make-up on every day, we tint, pluck, wax, we do anything to make ourselves look as good as we can and I think it’s pointless being hypocritical about something that if it’s done well can be really good.”
Look, we understand that being a celebrity for as long as she has been, there are different pressures than the average woman. It is great to hear someone as beautiful and successful like Kylie open up about her insecurities, because it shows she is just like us. However that shouldn’t mean plastic surgery is the only viable option the older she gets. Yes, it is a personal choice, but as there are so many young women who look up to her, it would be nice to see more pop stars be themselves and accept their flaws and the aging process.
We feel the more you try and change and conform to an unrealistic standard, the more you isolate yourself and risk losing the respect of fans who thought you were “just like them”. It is important to maintain a healthy balanced image of yourself and seek out mentors and role models who will steer you in this direction.
Kylie, we hope you don’t ever feel the need for plastic surgery, you are perfect and great just how you are and your fans love you no matter what, ya classy gal! We want you to keep looking like YOU and not something out of a surgeons’ catalog. We stand with you and celebrate our flaws and insecurities, because they make us who we are.
What are you insecurities and how do you deal with them? What are your thoughts on plastic surgery and do you think someone like Kylie Minogue needs it?
