On Tuesday we got our first look at Kylie Minogue on the cover of the new issue of British Elle magazine and today we learn from her coverstory interview that Ms. Minogue has strange yet strong dislike for clothes hangers … so much so that she refuses to use them at all. Doesn’t this sound a lot like someone else in pop culture that we know?
Kylie Minogue as a bizarre phobia – the pop superstar is terrified of clothes hangers. The style icon admits she is terrified of the sight and sound of hangers, and has even designed a special type of closet to display her designer outfits. She tells Britain’s Elle magazine, “The problem is I hate putting things on hangers. I have a hanger phobia – I don’t like the way they sound when you put them in the wardrobe. [My wardrobe is] a room in my home where everything is laid out. It never looks like other people’s wardrobes. I’ve got far too many shoes, but they’re so pretty I don’t like to hide them away.” Also in the interview, Minogue revealed one of her biggest fashion regrets. “The occasions when I listen to others and not myself,” she said. “But that can apply to numerous aspects in my life, not just fashion. Sometimes I’ll be wearing something I feel really uncomfortable in, and I’m sure it looks awful and you’re all liars… and then I see what the photographers were seeing and it looks brilliant.
LOL!! Of all the celebs in the world, I imagine that Kylie Minogue is the most unlike Joan Crawford (a.k.a. Mommie Dearest) and, yet, by her own admission she appears to be the one celeb most like her. Sure, I doubt Kylie would beat her child with a wire hanger for using wire hangers on on her clothes but still … with this new information, I guess we cannot be so sure. HMMM.
