"Canada's a bit more tuned in than the States, but Kylie Minogue's audience in North America still largely seems to consist of gay men and geeky music writers who over the years have consistently found themselves as wooed by the wee Aussie superstar's classy brand of haute couture pop as they have her feminine wiles." [Toronto Star]Kylie and Lenny dated according to the above quote, and "Who's Dated Who".
According to Facade, Lenny and Kylie are 71% emotionally compatible, but only 33% physically compatible.
