Kylie Minogue, who turned 52 in May, was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 36 in 2005. In a recent interview, the pop superstar shared the impact of that disease on her life.


Kylie Minogue told WHO back in April that the questions about her cancer diagnosis were a complicated question for her to answer with a neat sentence. The Australian singer added:

"But cancer changed many things forever, and some things didn't change at all."

Minogue's cancer diagnosis led to the postponement of the remainder of her tour, "Showgirl: The Greatest Hits Tour." She also withdrew from the Glastonbury Festival.

"My view of the world was different, my destination, for the most part, was the same," the star shared, adding that she was even more passionate about people and things that she loved.

However, Minogue, who is the highest-selling female Australian artist of all time and has been recognized for reinventing herself in music and fashion, admitted that life, as she had known, was on hold.



The acclaimed singer went on to say that in spite of the fact that she attempted to be positive, she was likewise reasonable with the need to permit some space for all of the other distressing sentiments and feelings.

It was those around her loved ones that gave her the strength to come out the other end of her breast cancer diagnosis, the "Can't Get You Out of My Head" singer said.

Aside from being a great singer, Minogue is also a great actress.



Minogue is currently working on her fifth studio album called "Disco." In July, she released the song "Say Something" as the first single from the album, and in September, she released the second single "Magic."

Like everyone else, the plans of the star for all this time in COVID-19 pandemic have not gone quite according to plan, she explained during her interview with GQ magazine in May.


Meanwhile, in a candid interview last year, the Grammy award winner stated that she had blamed her breast cancer battle for ruining her chance to have children.

Despite the fact that she has acknowledged she will never become a mother, the pop star said she actually can't help thinking about what that would have been like.

Aside from being a great singer, Minogue is also a great actress. At 11 years old, she landed her first professional acting gig on the hit television series "Skyways."

In 1983, she gave her first singing performance on a show called "Young Talent Time." Minogue is now being referred to by the European press as the "Princess of Pop," as well as a style icon.
