Dannii Minogue: Innocent comment or homophobic slur?

Tue 13 Oct 2009 In: Worth Checking Out View at NDHA

Minogue sister Dannii got in hot water over in the UK where she's a critic on a TV talent show. Have a look and you be the judge! We Begin to Wonder: Dannii Minogue The tabloid press has been hounding X Factor favourite contestant Danyl Johnson, shouting about his sexcapades with men. Singing Jennifer Hudson's hit And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going, Danyl changed he pronouns, to sound like he was dedicating the song to a lady. Dannii's comment to Danyl as part of the judge's critique (at around 3 minutes into the video linked below) got fellow judge Simon Cowell hot under the collar. Red-faced Dannii apologised for the remark in the following episode, but was she being offensive, or sharing a light-hearted observation with the singer? Have a look at the video setting Britain alight here. We're also keen for your views about it on's Forum. Matt Akersten - 13th October 2009
