What refreshing news! She’s stunning, hugely successful and has dated a string of A-list hotties, but even Kylie Minogue has days when she feels down in the dumps. (Don’t we all?!)
The singer recently admitted that she isn’t happy “all of the time” and that she loved exploring her darker side in new film, Holy Motors. The 44-year-old said that while she’s been blessed with an incredible career, she can become frustrated and has enjoyed returning to acting to explore other sides of her personality.
She said, “No one’s shiny and happy all the time. There are other sides of me that an experience like this has allowed me to explore. My persona is ‘Kylie’. As soon as I step out of my house I have that projection of me. But that isn’t necessarily who I am. What face do I show?”
In 2005, Kylie was diagnosed with breast cancer and battling the disease left her so ill, she couldn’t even concentrate on watching a movie. She admitted: “Lots of friends sent me DVDs and I just said, ‘I can’t concentrate for a whole film.’ A trip to the shop for a drink was a massive excursion.”
The ‘Spinning Around’ hitmaker’s drive to beat the illness and get well again stemmed from her desire to return to the stage. She explained, “Possibly because I was diagnosed mid-tour, that was my goal, to get back and perform. I just realised that no, this is what I do, and I want to do it better than before.”
If ever you needed inspiration to power through tough times, follow Kylie’s empowering lead, ladies!
