Kylie Minogue has told how being diagnosed with breast cancer changed her view of the world.
The Australian singer found out that she had the illness in 2005 when she was 36 and in the middle of her Showgirl tour, and said her life had to be put “on hold”.
Discussing the impact of the diagnosis, she told WHO magazine: “It’s always such a difficult question to answer with a neat sentence, but cancer changed many things forever, and some things didn’t change at all.”

"My view of the world was different, my destination, for the most part, was the same,” she added.
Looking back, the Love At First Sight singer said her illness made her “even more passionate” about the people and things that she loved.
The singer, now 51, underwent treatment for cancer following her diagnosis and early in 2006 her sister Dannii Minogue announced that she was in “full remission”.
In 2016, Minogue celebrated 10 years in remission.
She marked the milestone with a moving message of thanks on Instagram.
Sharing a childhood picture of herself, she wrote: “Today marks my official 10 year 'all clear' from breast cancer.
“Naturally, my nearest and dearest were at the forefront of my mind.
“Behind the tears were relief and thanks and thoughts.
“Thoughts of all those who are making their way towards this landmark, those who are past the landmark and of those who we sadly miss.
“Thank you just doesn't say enough.”
