In January it was reported that Aussie popstress Kylie Minogue would be collaborating with some fellow Aussies on their upcoming new album … and those fellow Aussies go by the name The Wiggles. That’s right, the all male singing group that is hugely popular with the toddler set has enlisted Ms. Kylie Minogue to sing with them on the track Monkey Man on their album The Wiggles go Bananas. At last, a music video for the song has been released … here are a few screencaps:
POP princess Kylie Minogue has teamed up with another favourite pop act, but this time from a different demographic – pre-school pin-ups The Wiggles. It is still unclear if Minogue will be pulling on a skivvy for any live performance of the kiddies track. Whatever the case, her two-year-old nephew Charles, son of cameraman brother Brendan, will love his aunt’s work – he is already a big fan of the fab four in primary colours. Minogue stars on their new track Monkey Man, from the upcoming album The Wiggles Go Bananas. The group were last year Australia’s top-earning entertainers for a fourth year running, after banking close to $45 million in 2007-8 from TV, shows, videos and albums. Kylie said: “Now Charles really will think I’m cool. I hope he likes the song. It was fun to do. I might even grab a shirt and go on tour with the boys. I’m not sure what colour I will be.” Late last year Kylie said she wished that she was a Wiggle. “I wish I was a member of the Wiggles. I wouldn’t mind doing a duet with them,” the pop princess lamented. At the time Yellow Wiggle Sam Moran said, “That would be a fantastic idea. We are definitely up for that. That is something we would love to do in the future. She would have to be in pink as our Showgirl Wiggle.”
Well duhvs, of course Kylie would be the Pink Wiggle. Truth be told, I don’t get The Wiggles but even my beautiful goddaughter Princess Zakiya is a fan so I cannot hate on them at all … now that they’ve teamed up with Kylie, well, I might even say I’m a bit of a fan ;) After the jump, check out the new music video for The Wiggles featuring Kylie Minogue in Monkey Man …
Okay … I know I said I cannot hate on these dudes but … to be honest, they’re still a bit weird to me. I do love that Kylie is in the video but … yeah, I still don’t get it :) Ah well, I suppose it’s not for me to get … clearly I am not their target audience. It’s a cute vid tho, don’t you think?
