Australian pop sensation Kylie Mingogue has attacked her own record label, saying she feels ‘let down’ by them.
The stars latest hit album, Aphrodite, got to number one in July, but her two singles released so far, Get Outta My Way and Better Than Today have flopped and she blames the label.
Minogue feels poor marketing was to blame for their lack of success and said, “I felt a little let down with my releases from Aphrodite. I was caught out like a lot of artists were, with record companies figuring out how to do single releases these days.
“I remember doing a promo for one of the last singles and it just felt really old-fashioned. I’m pretty computer-savvy, something didn’t feel right, but no one said anything to me.”
She also wants to follow in the footsteps of Lady Gaga and Briney Spears and allow her fans to download the new songs the day they hear them on the radio.
She added, “You get Britney releasing Hold It Against Me and Gaga’s Born This Way available on iTunes the day you hear it first. That’s how it should be. And there’s me waiting for a mid-week chart figure like it’s 1989. I was a bit disappointed by that. I didn’t know how to gauge the success of the singles. How do you measure it now?”
