Kylie Minogue weighs in on Britney Spears

'I can remember having a mini-meltdown myself'

Kylie Minogue
Kylie Minogue has commented on Britney Spears ongoing personal dramas, and revealed she too struggled with fame at a young age.

Minogue, who shot to fame as pop star 20 years ago admitted that being a celebrity is not easy.

"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.”

The singer goes on to say “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.”

The diminutive Aussie also told The Sun she thinks Britney’s career is not over yet.

“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."
