Kylie Minogue has reflected on her 2005 breast cancer battle, saying it felt like ‘the earth had slipped off its axis’ when she was diagnosed.

The 52-year-old singer underwent a lumpectomy and chemotherapy before she was declared cancer-free in February 2006.

Now Kylie has recalled being ‘in a daze’ after she was diagnosed, which caused the Australian icon to see the world around her differently.

She told People: ‘It’s like the earth had kind of slipped off its axis. You see everything differently.

‘I remember having had my diagnosis, but the world didn’t know. I was with my brother and my boyfriend at the time – we were all in a daze and went to a cafe. The server at the cafe was like, “Hey, how are you today?” We just kind of robotically said, “Good, thanks,” and in that moment I just thought: You really don’t know what anyone is going through. I thought that same person by tomorrow is going to see the news and say, “Oh my God, she was here yesterday, and we didn’t know”.’

The Spinning Around star also said her diagnosis caused a ‘huge change’ in her life, which left her needing to adapt to a new normal, much like those impacted by the current coronavirus pandemic.

She went on: ‘It’s a huge change, and it is before and after. Now with what’s happening in the world, there’s a lot of people talking about a new normal, but I think after cancer or any other big, life-changing incident or illness, you have to adapt.’

However, there is always a silver lining as Kylie said following her own difficult years, and the current health crisis gripping the world, she’s now hoping people can find the good in life as much as possible.

The Grammy-winner mused that when good moments happen in her life she acknowledges them, as she encouraged us to note the positive times, adding ‘because it’s all coming at you, good and bad’.

Kylie previously reflected on missing out on motherhood due to her cancer diagnosis, after treatment meant any plans to have kids were pushed back.

‘Realistically, you’re getting to the late side of things. And, while that wasn’t on my agenda at the time, it changed everything,’ she told Sunday Times Style magazine.

‘I don’t want to dwell on it, obviously, but I wonder what that would have been like.

‘Everyone will say there are options, but I don’t know. I’m 50 now, and I’m more at ease with my life. I can’t say there are no regrets, but it would be very hard for me to move on if I classed that as a regret, so I just have to be as philosophical about it as I can.’
