Heard this one about Australian singer Kylie Minogue (famous for I Should be So Lucky and her pointless remake of Locomotion) -

Apparently, back in the late 80's, she was asked to comment on the situation in South Africa. Probably not having read a single newspaper in months and not knowing who Nelson Mandella was, she replied "It's a shame what they are doing to the rhinos there".

Please let it be true!

I'd be inclined to think it's more along the lines of Mariah Carey's oft-reported ignorance about world news. That is to say, a fib.

Who would consult La Minogue if they wanted a quote about world events anyway?
