After beginning her career as a child actress on Australian television, she achieved recognition through her role in the television soap opera Neighbours, before commencing her career as a recording artist in 1987. Her first single, “Locomotion”, spent seven weeks at number one on the Australian singles chart and became the highest-selling single of the decade. This led to a contract with songwriters andproducers Stock, Aitken & Waterman. Her debut album, Kylie (1988), and the single “I Should Be So Lucky”, each reached number one in the UK, and over the next two years, her first 13 singles reached the British top ten.
In March 2010 Minogue was declared by researchers as the “most powerful celebrity in Britain”. The study examined how marketers identify celebrity and brand partnerships. Mark Husak, head of Millward Brown’s UK media practice, said: “Kylie is widely accepted as an adopted Brit. People know her, like her and she is surrounded by positive buzz”. She was named one of the “100 Hottest Women of All-Time” by Men’s Health. As of May 2011, according to the Sunday Times Rich List, Minogue has a net worth off $66 Million (£40m)
