Australian singer Kylie Minogue has found the secret behind her and fellow pop icon Madonna's success - they both take calculated risks.

The pair have enjoyed enduring musical careers since making their debuts in the 1980s, and Kylie is certain forward thinking has played a large role in their longevity.

She says, "We both like to keep an eye on what's happening - trends. She's definitely the front-runner in this business, but I share her enthusiasm for being experimental - we'd be bored otherwise.

"And I've got a good commercial head on my shoulders."
