This image does what most recent Kylie album covers* do: it screams
PAY ATTENTION. I AM A GORGEOUS POP LEGEND.
Indeed. But can we please acknowledge one glaring thing about this photo? That Kylie appears to be pulling some of that Benjamin Button shit?
Still, pop stars are never embarrassed about this sort of thing, are they? I remember my senior high school portrait being so airbrushed I thought it made me look Asian. I was mortified. If I had the pop star gene I would have just said, "Ooh, well done me! Don't I look deluxe?" and been on my way. The Kylie looks great here, but even better in real life.
*except, err, Body Language. I don't like that one.
