Pop superstar Kylie Minogue has hit out at reports she's wearing a corset with a 16-inch (40-centimetre) waist on her SHOWGIRL world tour.

The CAN'T GET YOU OUT OF MY HEAD singer was said to have squeezed into the tiny item on the first night of the roadtrip in Glasgow, Scotland, at the weekend (19MAR05).

But petite Minogue has dismissed the suggestion she is anywhere near that thin.

She says, "A 16-inch waist? Wow, even I would be amazed by that. Of course that is an exaggeration, but a showgirl shouldn't reveal her measurements."

Minogue's spokesperson adds, "We do not want anyone to think Kylie is promoting any form of extreme weight management or control. She does not have a 16-inch waist."
