Kylie Minogue Empathizing With Britney Spears

January 30th, 2008 // 3 Comments

Global darling pop star Kylie Minogue is speaking out about Britney Spears and her series of meltdowns should be expected. Kylie says she herself has come close to a meltdown herself before. Ok, that’s fine but sweetie, you had cancer. Britney’s toughest challenge has been itchy scalp and bad personal choices involving men, fashion, and birth control. Kylie says “”I wish someone would write a manual about fame because it’s not easy. I’m always loath to say that because there are a lot more difficulties out there that people deal with every day – but when fame is handed to you, it is unique. It’s not to the same extreme, but I can remember having a mini-meltdown myself – and unless you’ve got good people around to support you, you’ve got a problem. Who knows what is going on in her life? Britney isn’t that young any more. I think she will still come back but it’s like she’s taken an extended holiday. Whatever help she needs, she should reach out and get it.” Amen, White Diamond. Kylie herself says she “isn’t happy” and is “still searching” in her life. Honey, searching or not, you’re about 5000 entries over Britney on the “got your shit together” list.

    “I’m always loath to say that because there are a lot more difficulties out there that people deal with every day…”

    Too right, Ms. Minogue.

    Kylie says “”I wish someone would write a manual about fame because it’s not easy.”

    How lovely and gracious of Kylie. It ain’t rocket science either. Life is about choices – famous or not.

    Is it just me, or does Kylie bear an increasing resemblance to Pete Burns, of ‘You spin me right round, Baby, right round, like a record, Baby, right round, round, round’ fame?

    Yes its nice of her to be gracious. I think the ‘mini meltdown’ Kylie is talking about actually refers to events nearly 20 years ago, just after she first cracked the UK. I’m old enuff to remember the coverage in trashy women’s mags over here.

    A major tussle with The Big C does not rank as a mini-meltdown in anyone’s book. Its more a ‘Red Alert, Full-Blown Life-Or-Death Crisis’, n’est ce pas?
