Kylie Minogue is a pop star from Down Under. She's made a nice career comeback.

Taylor Swift writes songs about her exes as frequently as some people change their underwear. Swift's "Shake It Off" is rumored to be about both former flames Jake Gyllenhaal AND Harry Styles.

Or it's just an anthem about rising above and shaking off the haters. Either way, that's Taylor's M.O., but she isn't the only scathing songwriter in the game.

She's joined by a veritable legion of singers and bands who've made it their great pleasure to respond to their critics, enemies, and exes via song.

I Knew You Were Trouble - Taylor Swift
Oh, Taylor Swift! You just can't NOT write songs about exes! "I Knew You Were Trouble" is very publicly about One Direction's Harry Styles.

And then there are the musicians whose songs aren't about heartbreak at all but are instead tributes meant to help a friend through a tough time.

Songs in which others also find solace, like "Fix You" by Coldplay, which Chris Martin wrote for Gwyneth Paltrow, and which brought comfort to many facing tough times. 

We put together a playlist featuring 19 songs inspired by celebrities, some you know well and others you might not. Sit back, relax, and just push play!

Give Jean-Claude Van Damme points for honesty. We guess.

Interviewed by The Guardian this week, in promotion of The Expendables 2, the martial arts expert confirmed a long-time rumor: that he cheated on then-wife Darcy LaPier with singer Kylie Minogue during the 1994 filming of Street Fighter.

"Yes, yes, yes. It happened. I was in Thailand, we had an affair," said Van Damme, who has been married to Gladys Portugues since 1999.

For some reason, he then added of the fling:

"Sweet kiss, beautiful lovemaking. It would be abnormal not to have had an affair, she's so beautiful and she was there in front of me every day with a beautiful smile, simpatico, so charming, she wasn't acting like a big star. I knew Thailand very well, so I showed her my Thailand. She's a great lady."

The actor does have a point. Even at 43, Minogue can seriously work it. Really, it would be abnormal for any married man not to toss his vows in the trash just for one night with the beautiful artist.

In a word: Dizzzamn!

Kylie Minogue is 43 years old (and actually turns 44 Monday) but you'd never know it based on the way she dances and dresses in her music video for "Timebomb."

It's been released as part of the celebration for this Australian's 25th year in the music business and, in it, Kylie dons what very few people would actually refer to as a "dress."

What do you think of Minogue in this outfit?

 

Look for Minogue to perform "Timebomb" live on the British version of The Voice on May 27 and to include it on her upcoming greatest hits album, due out on June 19 in the U.S.

Pop star Kylie Minogue and Andres Velencoso, her Spanish model boyfriend, are reportedly shopping for a home and about to announce their engagement.

The pair have been dating since meeting in Paris last year, The Courier-Mail newspaper reports. Minogue and Andres Velencoso have been looking at property in the fishing village of Tossa Del Mar, a few miles north of Barcelona.

Tossa Del Mar is where the 31-year-old model was born and his father and sisters continue to live in the area. Velencoso's mom died seven years ago.

"I'm happier with him than I have ever been before, you never know, he could be the one," Kyle Minogue reportedly confided at the Cannes Film Festival. "He is great, who knows what the future holds but hopefully things will work out."

Kylie Minogue confirmed she is learning Spanish "because it would make things easier" between them, and has taken up golf, one of his passions.

Those close to the Aussie pop singer said that the 40-year-old is completely smitten and unlike with past love, Olivier Martinez, feels wanted.

"She feels loved, adored and wanted," a friend said, adding that her parents have already approved the dart-loving, soccer-mad Spaniard.

Meanwhile, it appears it be a double announcement for the Minogue family, as there are separate rumors floating around surrounding her sister, Dannii Minogue, who supposedly was proposed to by former rugby player / model Kris Smith.

There may be a 10-year age gap, a nine-inch height difference, and many thousand miles between their native Australia and Connecticut.

But thanks to matching golden locks and flawless skin, 5-foot-flat Aussie pop icon Kylie Minogue (left), 38, could double as a "mini-me" of sorts for 5-foot-9 Grey's Anatomy surgical intern and Knocked Up star Katherine Heigl (right).

What do you think? See the resemblance?

Eh, maybe not. But give us a break, alright?

Keep in mind that we've recently linked Jennifer Toof, a.k.a. "Toastee" to Mena Suvari, sellout chef Rachael Ray to teen idol Miley Cyrus, and Mary-Kate Olsen to ET. Yes, the alien. This is mostly for fun. And an excuse to talk about Katherine Heigl. Man she's hot!

Next up? A comparison of Daimon Shippen to an SNL's unfrozen caveman lawyer. After that? Those supposedly "controversial" and "nude" Amy Polumbo photos to pictures that any college girl in America has taken. Only Amy's are more vanilla.

Kylie Minogue is having a good week.

First, she was named best dressed celebrity.

Now, Aussie songstress has been immortalized in wax at Madame Tussauds in London. But her figure is even more impressive than that of Brangelina. How come?

Because Kylie is scented. The statue smells like Kylie's signature perfume, "Darling," and was unveiled yesterday by a pair of hunky Trojan warriors. Naturally.

Reportedly, Minogue was also hailed as the greatest gay icon of all time in an online poll at OnePoll.com. Lance Bass and Ellen DeGeneres were displeased at this news, however.

Kylie Minogue has topped UK Glamour's annual list of best dressed female celebrities. It's quite a triumph after her battle with cancer.

Last year's winner, Kate Moss, finished fourth. This may be due to the fact that she rarely wears a shirt anymore.

Kate Moss Pregnant?

Minogue, on the comeback trail since undergoing breast cancer surgery in May 2005, was praised for her understated look. It differs greatly from that of Keira Knightley, whose understated look applies to her layers of skin.

"We've seen a newer, softer-looking Kylie emerge this year - she's still sexy, but she's not flaunting that side of herself in gold hotpants any more," said Jo Elvin, editor of Glamour.

Minogue jumped from No. 26 on the list in 2006, while Moss slipped to fourth this year from first in 2006 - while her British rocker, drug-riddled boyfriend Pete Doherty was named one of the worst dressed males.

In second place was Victoria Beckham. The former member of the Spice Girls wears tight shirts to accentuate her giant boobs. She's also married to David Beckham, the magazine's best dressed male.

U.S. socialite, vicotin user and all around waif, Nicole Richie, somehow came in third place; while British actress and dietary expert, Sienna Miller, rounded off the top five in fifth.

Who was the biggest gainer of the year? Another rail-thin star, Kate Hudson. Owen Wilson's ex jumped 41 places to ninth. The list that will be published in the February edition of Glamour UK.
