Kylie Minogue: Evolution of a Pop Princess

Minogue, Kylie: Evolution of a Pop Princess

Over the years, Kylie Minogue has reinvented herself to move with the times and in the process has become not only a recording artist, but also a business woman, a fashion icon, and an idol to the gay community. She credits her first change in style from "singing budgie" to sexy vamp to INXS front man Michael Hutchence, with whom she had a relationship. She took control of her career by starring in The Delinquents and launching a new album. She and Hutchence broke up but remained friends until his death in 1997. Once again, the press fixated on her change of image, but for Kylie the constant evolution was just a natural part of growth. Her ninth studio album saw a more mature, sultry Kylie. She also ditched boyfriend, James Gooding, for French actor Olivier Martinez. Her private life was finally coming together, but in 2005 she was shocked to learn she had breast cancer and had to focus her energies into fighting for her life. Olivia Newton John, a fellow cancer survivor, came to her defense and urged the press and public to let Kylie recover in private, and fans remained supportive. Her recovery coincided with her amicable breakup with Martinez. Kylie took steps toward a comeback by appearing onstage at one of her sister Dannii's concerts. Other important milestones were to write a children's book and to return to the stage for the Australian leg of her own tour. She vows never to take life for granted again.
