About Kylie Ann Minogue
Kylie Minogue has an estimated net worth of $75 million. At 42, and after more than two decades in the music business, the actress-turned-singer, still has the ability to generate mammoth ticket sales for her live concerts, a skill she is expected to demonstrate again with her latest European tour Aphrodite: Les Folies which kicks off in February 2011 in Denmark.
The songstress has been churning out chart topping hits for 23 years, ever since breaking away from her acting role in the Australian soap Neighbours - where she earned just £150 an episode - and hit the music world by storm with her cover version of Locomotion in 1987 and soon afterwards with I Should Be So Lucky.
Melbourne-born Minogue is paid an annual salary through Darenote, a UK company run by her parents. The company manages the payments from her tours, records, royalties and other business ventures such as perfumes and home wares.
The singer is said to be pocketing more than she ever has before. In the year to April 2009 the company had a turnover of £4.6m, the majority of which came from her highly profitable tour in 2008-2009, and paid her a salary of £1.2m.
That year she also received £2m to perform at a hotel opening in Dubai.
Such personal appearances are a money-spinner for the star whose career began a resurgence in 2000 with the single Spinning Around, after a period of relatively lacklustre record sales during the 1990s.
In 2004 she was paid $1m (£630,000) to entertain Deutsche Bank staff for just 40 minutes.
Then in 2007 she received $500,000 (£315,000) for a 30 minute gig at the wedding of Vanisha Mittal daughter of steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal.
The petite performer also made a cameo appearance in the Bollywood film Blue in 2009 and was paid $1m (£630,000) to record its big number dance song. That year she also co-hosted the Brit awards.
Minogue has also derived a modest stream of income from acting since her Neighbours days. She played herself in an episode of the comedy series The Vicar of Dibley and appeared in the 2007 Doctor Who Christmas special, which attracted a television audience of over 13m, the cult programme's highest viewing figures since 1979.
She is said to be keen to kick start a more serious movie career in the near future building on appearances over the years in The Delinquents, Street Fighter and as the Green Fairy in Moulin Rouge. She also performs the role of a tattooed rock star in the werewolf thriller Jack and Diane due out next year.
The blond, blue-eyed beauty also manages to pull in a pretty penny from fronting advertising campaigns and is currently the face of Tous, the Spanish jewellery and handbag brand. Minogue's (skantily clad) appearance in a controversial advertisement for lingerie company Agent Provocateur in 2001 earned her good money and was recently voted as the best cult cinema ad of all time.
In 2002 she helped launch the Ford StreetKa at the Paris motor show. In her time she has also endorsed British Airways, Eurostar and Pepsi.
Minogue launched her first perfume 'Darling' with cosmetics firm Coty in 2006, which proved to be a particular moneyspinner in Australia. Fans can now pick from five brands in her perfume stable, including a scent for men. The singer also introduced a range of bed-linen in 2008, which is sold in High Street department stores and in 2007 she launched a swimwear range with fashion chain H&M.
While convalescing from treatment for breast cancer in 2006, workaholic Minogue threw herself into publishing a children's book 'The Showgirl Princess', which is still on sale.
Still on medication for cancer five years on from her diagnosis, Minogue nevertheless keeps up the pace on working and earning. As well as her forthcoming tour, she is rumoured to be writing a musical based on her songs.
Meanwhile, she and her Spanish model boyfriend Andres Velencoso are said to be looking for a home in New York City, where he is usually based and from where she might be able to progress her acting ambitions.
She obviously wants to keep London as her permanent base, however, The Chelsea flat she has owned since the early 1990s is currently on the market for about £4m although she has already apparently splashed out on a bigger £5m five-bedroom home along the road to replace it.
She has treated herself to a a holiday home for £450,000 in Velencoso's home town of Tossa de Mar, near Barcelona.
Property appear to play a big part in her investment portfolio. Astute with money, probably thanks to the influence of her accountant father Ron, Kylie and her family also own a clutch of commercial and residential rental properties in the Melbourne area of Australia. Last year they sold for a rumoured £1m a renovated property in the remote French Island area, where Kylie went to recuperate after her cancer treatment.
