Washington: Kylie Minogue has joined the big league with a whopping 35 million-pound deal from EMI, thus toeing the line of Robbie Williams and his 80 million-pound pay packet.
Having signed a paltry 800,000-pound three-year deal with EMI before the success of “Spinning Around” and “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head”, the Aussie singer will become the recipient of the second highest record deal since Robbie’s last year.
According to PeopleNews reports, her lawyers and manager have been in talks with EMI for a month. “Kylie’s camp have been working on three separate aspects of her contract – record sales, DVD and video sales and merchandising, which for her is phenomenal and they’re trying to sort it. So every penny goes to her.”
Kylie (35), who could live off the proceeds of her scanty calendars and lingerie collection alone, looks set to be in the money and Top 40 for a while longer.
