Kylie: I turned down The X Factor

Kylie Minogue has admitted that she was offered to fill in for sister Dannii on The X Factor - but she turned it down.
The pop princess said she thought it would get "messy" if she stood in as a judge on the talent show while Dannii goes on maternity leave later this year.
She told The Sun: "I couldn't possibly do it for two reasons. The first is simply that the timings don't work out with my new album coming out. But also - and more importantly - this is Dannii's thing. It would all have become really messy if I'd taken over."
Kylie added that she was proud of her sister for standing up to critics of her judging style.
"She went through two years of criticism and had to endure everyone putting her down the whole time.
"But she remained herself throughout and that's what I'm most proud of. She was completely consistent," Kylie said.
