Pop beauty Kylie Minogue's former manager Pete Waterman has ridiculed the world's obsession with the singer, insisting there's nothing sexy about her or her legendary backside.

The music guru - now a judge on Britain's POP IDOL - visited the star's changing room "more than once" but never felt lusty urges toward Kylie, something he puts down to his increasing age.

He says, "Everyone thinks I'm the luckiest man in the world - I've been in the changing room with her more than once. I'm lucky, lucky, lucky. I just can't see Kylie as sexy.

"I must be the only man in Britain. All this stuff about her bum, I can't see it personally. It's me getting older - I need new glasses."
