Kylie Minogue Mobbed By Fans During US Trip (PICS)

As big and brilliant a popstar Kylie Minogue may be, there's always been one thing she's failed to do - win over the lucrative US market.

However, things were looking good for Kyles on that front yesterday, as she was mobbed by American fans in Beverly Hills.

The pint-sized popstar was swarmed as she finished shopping at the D&G store, waving and smiling for the cameras.

But she obviously didn't realise she'd left her nightie on...

Kylie has only had two top ten hits over in the States - The Locomotion in 1998 and Can't Get You Out Of My Head in 2002, and the star has long desired to make a big name for herself there.

Before a promotional tour ahead of the release of her album X in 2008, a source close to the star told The Sun: "It eats away at Kylie that she’s never hit the big time there.

"She has tried before and it didn’t happen. But being the kind of determined person she is, she’s giving it one more go.

Back in 2010, Kylie tried to explain why she hasn't achieved her American dream, telling US TV show Extra: "Europe has seen a lot more of me over the years. But here in the States, you've kind of just seen me now and then.

"My [U.S.] audience has been exceptionally loyal and overwhelming patient, waiting for me to come back."
