Australian pop star and gay icon Kylie
Minogue will go gay in her return to the silver screen.
Minogue, the New York Post
reports, will play Tara, a heavily tattooed lesbian, in the film
Jack and Diane.
“Kylie does have one love scene where
she kisses a girl,” an unnamed source told the Post, “but
her performance is good.”
In the movie, two teenage girls, Jack
and Diane, meet in New York City and begin exploring their sexuality.

The film stars Juno Temple and Riley
Keough, Elvis Presley's granddaughter.
Minogue's career was put on hold in

Ross that family, friends and fans helped lighten the “darkness”
The 42-year-old singer took to the
stage earlier this month at the Plaza de Espana to celebrate Madrid's
gay pride parade, one of Europe's largest, where she performed her
single All the Lovers from her new album Aphrodite.
Minogue was last seen in Director Baz
Luhrman's musical Moulin Rouge.
