  Kylie slams reality TV shows for kids
Updated 12 November 2002, 09.04
Kylie said children should not just think about fame
Kylie Minogue has slated TV shows like Popstars and Pop Idol saying they encourage children to be "frighteningly" obsessed with fame.

The singer reckons this type of programme makes young people just want to be famous, without caring what for.

She said the ITV shows, as well as programmes like Big Brother and Fame Academy, were to blame.

'Sake of being famous'

Mikey from Popstars was the latest evictee
"For teenagers, that's the kind of TV they've had for the last five years," Kylie told Radio 1's Jo Whiley.

"It's like 'What do you want to do when you grow up? I want to be famous. What for? It doesn't matter.'"

She said young people should want to do something else first, not just want to be famous for the sake of being famous.

This comes just after Robbie Williams, who sang a duet with Kylie, also slammed this kind of show. He said the programmes "messed with young people's lives".
