KYLIE MINOGUE has admitted she still misses MICHAEL HUTCHENCE, and has opened up about her cancer treatment in an emotional TV interview.
The Spinning Around singer talked to Australia’s 60 Minutes about some of the toughest parts of her life, and looked back on her relationship with INXS singer Michael, who died in 1997.
Kylie dated him from 1989 to 1991 and, according to the Daily Mirror, told the programme: “I had never met anyone like that. I was probably not very cool then and he was uber-cool and somehow we met in the middle.
“I love seeing pictures of then because he was so proud.”
She added: “He had this all-encompassing love of life and if you have such a strong love and they are not there, it’s different to when you have a strong love and the possibility of seeing them again to talk and share experiences with.
“I miss him just as much as anyone who was fortunate enough to spend time with him.”
n ELLIE GOULDING has told how she seeks advice from famous friends TAYLOR SWIFT and KATY PERRY about fame.
The 27-year-old British singer told Glamour magazine how she aims to surround herself with powerful women, and turns to Taylor and Katy for guidance about fame.
Ellie said of her famous pals: “We’re friends because they understand the predicaments. They see what is and isn’t real.
“I’m not anywhere near their level of fame, but if I say, ‘Oh God Taylor, this happened’, she’ll be like, ‘Girl, that’s nothing’. Suck it up, kind of thing.”
She added: “I have strong female characters all around me, really cool women. My tour manager is a woman, my manager is a woman.
“I want to be surrounded by powerful women, not men.”
n KIM KARDASHIAN has insisted she was being sarcastic when she said women should “hide” during pregnancy. The 33-year-old reality TV star - who is mother to one-year-old daughter North with husband KANYE WEST - was asked in a recent interview with Elle magazine about pregnancy style, and advised women to “never leave the house”.
But Kim has tweeted: “I guess you can’t be sarcastic when doing interviews! I was asked about tips on pregnancy style...I jokingly said pregnant women should hide/stay in if they looked like I did lol.”
In the interview, Kim was quoted as saying: “I recommend hiding for a good year and having no pregnancy style... that’s what I recommend.
If you can do it, hide. Never leave the house. That’s really my recommendation. Wear a huge blanket.”
n MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ has called Fast And Furious 7 “the roughest shoot” for herself, her co-stars and crew.
The Avatar actress stars in the film franchise’s latest instalment with VIN DIESEL, and paid tribute to their late co-star PAUL WALKER, who died in a car crash when shooting on the movie was already under way.
According to The Wrap, Michelle marked the end of filming by posting a photo on Facebook of herself and Vin in a car, captioned: “15 years later Ride or Die through thick and thin we finally finished the hardest emotional roller coaster, #FF7. Hope to make you proud P, love you.”
She also posted: “One love to a crew and cast that endured most likely the roughest shoot in their careers.
A labour done with love and respect for a legacy that will live on long after we’re gone.”
