She first made it big in the late 1980s in the Australian soap Neighbours, but upon moving to England, she made the transition to pop sensation. When the hits dried up in the 1990s, Kylie was faced with her first major challenge--she had to reinvent herself for a new generation of fans. Stepping out of the shadow of her producers, she bravely forged her own path as an independent performer- and though everyone was still talking about her, she had to face the fact that she wasnt at the top any more. So she reinvented herself again in the early 2000s as a disco diva--and this time, her career, which appeared to be in gentle but terminal decline, was turned around dramatically. Songs such as Spinning Around and Cant Get You Out of My Head became pop classics, and provided reason enough for the public that had always held her in huge affection to fall in love all over again. Kylie-mania spread all over the world and her reputation was sealed--she was an international superstar. After her traumatic 2005 battle with breast cancer, the Aussie diva came back stronger and sexier than ever, putting on a breathtaking comeback with her ever-elaborate Showgirl tour. Now, still a favorite with the public, Kylie Minogue can do no wrong. Twenty years after her first single Locomotion, with her 10th studio record released, she shows no signs of slowing down.
