Comedian duo Hamish Blake and Andy Lee interview Kylie Minogue in this excerpt from their Hamish & Andy radio show from 2012.

Kylie talks about the origin of her famous booty dance, which is now an essential part of her dance repertoire in concerts and music videos.

She traces it back to being 9 or 10 years old. When dancing with sister Dannii and her brother, they used to compare whose bums wiggled the most!

The dance is discussed in the context of her being allowed to perform her racy trademark move at The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert on 4 June 2012.

Her ability to laugh at herself is beautifully illustrated in this excerpt. It sounds like she even takes Hamish and Andy by surprise with her graphic description.

Kylie clearly loves comedy and shines in her cameo performances on The Comedy Company (1989) and Kath and Kim (2004) where she appeared as Epponnee-Raelene Charlene Kathleen Darleen Craig.
