Kylie Minogue is the ''best girlfriend'' Jake Shears could have.

The 'All the Lovers' hitmaker has a close Bond with the Scissor Sisters frontman but he admits he hates making her angry because she gives him the silent treatment.

He said: ''Kylie is the best girlfriend a gay boy could have. [But] I really p***ed her off a few months ago.

''We had arranged to go and see George Michael's Symphonica premiere at the Royal Opera House.

''Well, I woke up a little late that evening - if you catch my drift. I was supposed to pick her up and get to the premiere for 7.30pm. I turned up to her house at that time.

''She was fuming. And when Kylie is angry, she doesn't say anything. Just this awful silence.''

Despite Kylie's fury, the pair didn't miss a minute of the show - which saw the 'Freedom' hitmaker perform a selection of his hits backed by a full orchestra - because the performance had been delayed.

Jake added: ''We got there at 8.05pm and everyone was sat in the auditorium, waiting. They'd held the show up for us.''
