Minogue Claims Obe On Queen's Honours List

KYLIE MINOGUE has a very special reason to celebrate the New Year - she has learned she'll pick up an Order of the British Empire (OBE) medal after landing a place on British monarch QUEEN ELIZABETH II's New Year Honours List. The cancer survivor, 39, has been a beloved Australian export in her adopted Britain for more than 20 years, and has sold more than 60 million records worldwide. Also named on the Queen's coveted list is British chat show king Michael Parkinson, who will be knighted in 2008, and Lord of The Rings star Sir Ian MCKellen, who becomes a Companion of Honour. Actress Julie Walters and beloved comedy actor Leslie Phillips will also be honoured by The Queen. Both get Commanders of the British Empire (CBE) medals. And James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli is to receive an OBE. Minogue isn't the only music star on the Honours List; JethroTull singer/flautist Ian Anderson becomes a Member of The Order of The British Empire (MBE), and Soul II Soul hitmaker Jazzie B, aka Trevor Romeo, is awarded an OBE.
