CANNES WATCH: Kylie has ice cream date in Cannes

Associated Press

CANNES, France (AP) — Pop siren Kylie Minogue was in Cannes for a birthday party — not for a person, but a favorite treat.

The Australian singer and sometime actress attended the Cannes Film Festival Wednesday night to give a concert celebrating Magnum ice cream's 25th birthday.

The celebration for the brand included a Minogue concert. She sung hits, including "The Locomotion," after posing for cameras in a rather appropriate shimmering silver sequined cocktail dress — after all, the 25th is the silver anniversary.

Minogue is no stranger to Cannes — two years ago she attended for "Holy Motors," a film in the official selection in which she played a role.
