Kylie Minogue used to have a decent amount of performance anxiety every time she took the stage.
That is until she fought and beat breast cancer!
She was diagnosed back in May of 2005, fought hard and was given a clean bill of health in 2006.
She said it helped her put things in perspective and get past her stage fright.
"Even with the 'Fever' tour [in 2002], as proud as I was of that tour, I was still a little uncertain on stage. It probably wasn't until after being ill, coming back onto the road after the 'Showgirl' tour stopped. I certainly wasn't 100 percent, but by that point I just thought, 'f**k it'. I thought, 'I just can't worry that much, people are enjoying it, I love doing it, so I owe it to myself to try and enjoy it and let go.' In anything you do, the more relaxed you are the better you will be. That's what I try to do.
Well, that's the idea anyway. I'll still get stressed about a show, but it was around then that I started to accept who I am. This is who I am, this is where I'm good, this is where I'm not so good, this is my voice."
We're so glad to hear that she turned a real negative into something positive!
So she still gets butterflies every now and again but she won't let that stop her from enjoying her time on stage.
We're so glad you're healthy and happy!
