Madonna Gwen Stefani Lindsay Lohan look fierce on the cover of ELLE UK?
Actually, hello Kylie Minogue.
In the accompanying interview, 44-year-old Kylie spoke candidly about her feelings on aging – well, kind of candidly. “There are lots of times I look in the mirror and see that gravity has taken hold,” she said. “Or suddenly see my face on a phone or on Skype and it’s like a Spielberg special effect and you just scream, ‘Who is that?'”
Kylie insists her makeup-free face makes her look 94, not 44 and that she hasn’t had surgery – but hasn’t ruled it out in the future either. Kylie says women shouldn’t have to apologise about having plastic surgery done.
* cough * Can we respectfully suggest that ‘surgery’ is a slightly disenguous term to use. Does it mean she hasn’t had a facelift or that she’s never used anything other than make-up, skin cream and SPF30+? What about filler? Botox? Collagen?
Kylie, we love you but you do not have the same face as you did 20, 10 or even 5 years ago. So let’s not pretend your approach to aging is au-natural. Take a look:

“I look at someone like Jane Fonda – I’m a super fan of hers, she doesn’t apologise (about her surgery) and she shouldn’t have to. We put make-up on every day, we tint, pluck, wax, we do anything to make ourselves look as good as we can and I think it’s pointless being hypocritical about something that if it’s done well can be really good.”
3. Tell us: Would you wear it? It’s a glitter, tiger-striped jumpsuit teamed with black leather over-the-knee boots. And it’s what 47-year-old Shania Twain wore during her first concert in eight years. Coincidentally, it’s what we were all planning to wear to the Mamamia Christmas party. Snap Shania!

5. BIRTHS, DEATHS & MARRIAGES
Which celebrity has given birth to her sixth child? If she doesn’t have one already, 42 year old Antonia Kidman is going to need to buy a Tarago. Or maybe a tour bus. She’s just given birth to a baby boy, three weeks before his due date.
In a statement she said:
It is with great delight Craig and I are thrilled to advise that Alexander Norman Kidman Marran arrived safely in the early morning of the 3rd of December weighing a healthy 3kg.Alexander caught us by surprise arriving earlier than anticipated with Craig and Sybella jumping on a flight from Singapore and arriving this morning.
Forty-two-year-old Antonia has four children from her first marriage to Angus Hawley – 13-year-old Lucia, 11-year-old Hamish, 9-year-old James and 5-year-old Sybella – and one more child with her current husband Craig Maran – 22-month-old Nicholas. All of the children are said to be extremely excited about the new addition to their not so small family.
