Kylie Minogue has discovered her funk side on her new album BODY LANGUAGE - thanks to superstar Prince.

The diminutive Australian singer is usually better known for her pop songs, but believes her love of the RASPBERRY BERET singer shines through on the new longplayer.

She says, "I did find myself saying to friends, 'It's actually got some funk influence in there.'

"I guess it's my whole Prince thing. I was obsessed with him as a teenager. So my album is pop-funk. It's still got that electronic overtone - I'm not pretending I've gone all R+B - but there's definitely a funk influence."
