Kylie Minogue says she's inspired by Lady Gaga

Kylie Minogue has admitted her new album Aphrodite was partly inspired by Lady Gaga.

The Australian singer has opened up about the effect the Poker Face performer’s distinctive style has had on the direction of popular music.

“Lady Gaga dropped a meteor in the middle of the pop landscape - which is amazing,” the 41 year-old said.

“But it meant that we had to take that into account. It wouldn’t have made any sense to go down that road to try to fit in.”

The chart topper also revealed that despite more than 20 years as a performer, reading bad reviews is a painful experience.

“It cuts like a knife if I read a bad review. But in the end, how the album is received by the press won’t make any difference to me - I’d still come back,” Minogue told Out magazine.

The star also confessed that despite being known for her sexy style, she does not think she is much of fashion trendsetter, labelling herself 'untrendy'.
