Superfan: Kylie Minogue – Owen Lambourn
Devoted fans show us their collections and pop memorabilia. This time, Owen Lambourn from Melbourne gives us a good look at his Kylie collection….
Q When did you first become a Superfan of your favourite artist and why do you like them?
A I wasn’t allowed to watch Neighbours growing up, so I became a fan of Kylie after seeing the promo for I Should Be So Lucky. I was about seven years old at the time. My older sister and I would spend our Saturday and Sunday mornings watching the Top 30 countdown on Aussie music TV shows like Rage and Video Hits.
Q What do you have in your collection?
A I have CDs, DVDs, cardboard cut-outs and standees, posters, candles, books, mugs, T-shirts and vinyl. Vinyl is my favourite thing to collect at the moment.
Q How much have you spent on your collection?
A I’ve spent A LOT, and that’s not including tickets to Kylie’s live shows. The most I’ve spent on one single piece would be approximately $400 (AUD).
Q What is your favourite item in your collection?
A The limited edition release of Fever on white vinyl by Sainsbury’s at a limited run of 1,000 units worldwide!
Q Have you ever met your favourite artist?
A Only briefly. I’ve had many encounters with Kylie while getting a quick autograph here and there, which I’m forever grateful for.
Q If you could ask your favourite artist one question, what would it be?
A So many fans say Kylie would never do something like this so the one question out of many that I’d love to ask her would be: “If you were asked to compete on a reality TV show like I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! to raise money for your favourite charity, would you do it? And if so, what would your charity be?”
