Kylie dreams of credible film career not US success

Pop singer Kylie Minogue is not bothered that the music stardom she enjoys in Britain and Australia has eluded her in the United States but says she fantasises about a credible film career.

Sandy Nairne: They don't begin and end with Kylie Minogue and Judy Garland

This year is the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York – a marker for many in the gay community in terms of resistance and overcoming the negative attitudes and discrimination that gay people have experienced for so long. But what we wanted to say with this exhibition is that while it is an important anniversary, it is a very good moment to celebrate the diversity of the achievements of gay people over these years. The way in which we wanted to stage the exhibition was not simply to follow a set-piece idea of what other people might think were the "classic" gay icons, but instead to invite a number of distinguished figures, from many different backgrounds and places, to become our selectors and to ask "Who is it that is iconic for you?" The selectors have interpreted what "iconic" means in very different ways. But centrally there is a strong sense of inspiration. Of course, there is a crossover with the broader themes of equality, tackling discrimination and finding ways to overcome it.

The Word On... Britney Spears, the new album

"'Circus' echoes its title through the album with unnerving beats and creepy riffs. Britney can hardly smile sweetly after such a public breakdown, so it's an album of dark electronic drums, demure only on "Out From Under" and in the bizarre cover artwork." - Talia Kranes, bbc.co.uk/music
