Leave Kylie alone!

AUSTRALIAN pop diva Kylie Minogue copped a bitter serve from ex-Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown at the Q Awards overnight.

Brown said Kylie's music was "rubbish" and "for little kids".

He told the BBC Radio Five Live: "I don't know what Kylie's doing at a music awards to be honest.
"I don't think she's cute. I don't think she's good-looking. Her music's rubbish - she makes music for little kids.

"I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm putting her down, but there's a lot of great minds out there making music and she's not one of them."

Sir Paul McCartney, Kylie Minogue and Arctic Monkeys were the big winners at this year's Q Awards, held at the Grosvenor House Hotel overnight.

The Beatles legend received The Q Icon award, Kylie took The Q Idol accolade and Arctic Monkeys claimed the prestigious Best Act In The World Today prize at the glitzy ceremony at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.

Paul notably failed to mention his estranged wife Heather Mills in his lengthy acceptance speech, in which he thanked his former Beatles bandmates, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison, and his late wife Linda McCartney.

He said: "I've been coming to these things for a long time and you sit there petrified, not knowing what to say, should you tell a couple of dirty jokes?

"I would like to thank George, John and Ringo, the boys. I would like to thank Linda for seeing me though some real tough periods, and my beautiful family, my kids, who are fantastic."

The 65-year-old singer was presented the award by a visibly drunk Damon Albarn, who earlier bemused the star-studded audience with a rambling speech when he collected The Q Inspiration Award.

Well, I don't recall Kylie ever saying she was making 'fine art' it's just rock n roll, right? (psst, I also interviewed Kylie on the red carpet,for the opening night of Muriels Wedding; and I ducked under the ropes and walked up the stairs with her whilst still interviewing her, to the sheer horror of her minders.

They totally freaked out! It was great fun.

(and no, I don't know where that interview is) :(
