Kylie Minogue has been diagnosed with breast cancer and has been forced to postpone her Australian Showgirl tour.
The following statement was issued by her management:
"Whilst at home in Melbourne with her family this week prior to her Australian Showgirl tour, Kylie was diagnosed with early breast cancer. She will undergo immediate treatment and consequently her Australian tour will not be able to proceed as planned."
Minogue said today: "I was so looking forward to bringing the Showgirl tour to Australian audiences, and am sorry to have to disappoint my fans.
"Nevertheless, hopefully all will work out fine and I'll be back with you all again soon."
Minogue had been scheduled to tour Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth over the next month.
The promoters, The Frontier Touring Company, said ticket holders should hang onto their tickets pending the announcement of new dates.
She can always make videos of her arse if surgery is radical and a full norkectomy is required.
I think Aunty Stella has a set of novelty busters he is prepared to rent out.
Sad news but it could have been worse..... could be someone I know or worse than that colon cancer and the need to wear nappies under those hotpants would have fella's woodies subsiding the planet over.......apart from mine
