Kylie Minogue lands `rock-chick` movie role
London: Pop star Kylie Minogue has landed a tattoo-clad `rock chick` role in a new feature film.
This is the first movie role in long time for the `Spinning Around` hitmaker who shot to fame with Australian soap opera `Neighbours` in the 1980s before launching a hugely successful singing career, a news website reported.
In the 1990s, she made a handful of movie appearances, with roles in `The Delinquents` and `Street Fighter`, followed up with a part as the Green Fairy in `Moulin Rouge` in 2001.
The 42-year-old singer is now starring in `Jack And Diane` opposite Juno Temple, Jena Malone and music legend Elvis Presley`s granddaughter Riley Keough.
Minogue jetted to New York this week to start filming her scenes. Pictures show her dressed in ripped skinny jeans, a cropped vest and ankle boots with her neck, back and arms covered in fake tattoos.
The movie, which follows the story of two teenage girls in New York City, is due for release next year.
