Kylie Minogue Visits Fans At 1AM To Say "Goodnight", Buys Biscuits In The Morning And Signs Books At Harrods

Kylie Minogue was proven to be one of the most fan-friendly celebrities in the world quite few times to date.
She easily rolls down the car windows to chat with fans in the middle of the busy road in NYC, stops to take pictures and chat to them when being late for the plane, signs merchandise through the fences and sends autographs to fans' homes.

But this is just a brief list of things Kylie does! This time, Minx dropped by after the Am Manager Awards (where her Manager of 25 years, Terry Blamey, received The Peter Grant Award) to say "goodnight" to fans camping outside Harrods Bookstore (to get a chance to see her at Kylie Fashion book signing), offered warm things to keep them "warm" and then bought biscuits for the "naughty lovers" the next morning so they don't starve!

This story was sent to me from my good friend, who was one of the lucky-naughty-lovers and felt the warmth, charm, sweetness and care of the Goddess herself! ;)
so, Enjoy!


The trip was amazing!! It was so worth it! I feel blessed that I could go!
I arrived at Harrods around 21.45, I think. There already were about ten people queuing. Some already got their tickets from the security, to make sure they could go in the evening. Around 22.30 he came back with more tickets for people who just arrived. I was glad we did get a ticket (wristband), did take a lot of stress away because we knew we could get in now. The security asked if we had a place to go, and if we did, then we should go and stay warm and come back in the morning to buy the book and get the wristband.

A few of us decided to stay. We had fun in the evening. Suddenly a car drove by really slow. It was Kylie and her car! So people started to tweet her. A bit later Leanne showed up with Kylie's phone, filming us and asking us how we are doing. She then said she has a little suprise to keep us warm tru the night. And then the car came back, and Kylie came out. Calling us "naughty lovers" and answering a few questions, telling us to be safe and warm. That visit was so good. And even if the book signing got canceled for some reason, it would not even have bothered me, cause that visit was so unique and special!

The morning came really quick and more and more people showed up. The queue was already going around the corner around 6 am. A lot of people decided to come early to make sure they would meet Kylie.
 While everyone was waiting a really lovely lady from TBM showed up with biscuits, saying that Kylie texted her asking to bring us the biscuits in the morning after she visited us. That made everything even better! It was all so perfect and so lovely. Kylie is a truly great person and has the best personality! Who else would come by and later deliver biscuits?!?! WOW! (I did hear she also asked to send us tea, but we did not get that. Don't know if that is a rumour or if something went wrong).
At 10 am they let people into Harrods in groups of 25 to buy the book and get the wristbands. They organized everything so good! No stress at all, everything was going smoothly.
People left when they got their wristbands. A lot of people were disappointed because they showed up too late since it was already very crowded really early.
The flier said come back at 5.30 for the signing.
 Around 6 pm, the security was getting ready for the signing. They let us back in, in groups of 25. There were 10 people who got invited to get a book signed, and they went in first.
After that they let us in the room, the room was very well decorated, with lots of roses and "Kylie shoes" on top of them. Really lovely!! And special to see shoes she keeps on tweeting as #shoeoftheday!
 By the time I got to Kylie I was so nervous! I am surprised I even said something to her! She was shining, and her eyes are... WOW. She has the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen! They keep surprising me - her eyes!

She said "Hello Ilse, how are you?" We had a little chat about the night, I bought her a present for Xmas and she thanked me for that and said that she will have a look at it later, she asked if I bought it in Harrods. She signed my book. And after that she signed yours (lucky me to have a friend and inspiration like these two! :).
I told her that you asked me to send her your love. She replied saying you run a really good website, keeping us all very up to date (Thank you, Kylie, it means the world coming from YOU!!).
After that my time was up and she wished me a good evening and said bye.

It was an amazing experience. Would not have wanted to miss this for anything in the world!!


Ilse (@ip_1984) also sent me the video and a picture of the visit. And I also wanna thank Hayley (@Hayley_KM) for sharing her video and pictures as well!
