You Oughta Know: Kylie Diagnosed with Breast Cancer; S'pore Concert Postponed

Kylie Minogue has been diagnosed with breast cancer! As a result, the Australian and Asian legs of her highly-anticipated Showgirls Tour has been postponed.

This is indeed shocking news, it came out of the blue. As for the concert, I think it is more likely that it is cancelled rather than postponed. I don't expect her to recover fully so soon and take the road in the next couple of years. Good thing I have not bought tickets yet.

That aside, Kylie is the second young pop star to be diagnosed with a disease that is predominantly of older women. The other was US singer Anastacia, who recently recovered from it. Kylie is 36 and Anastacia was 29 when she got it.

Sigh, this is bad news for Kylie's fans and fans of pop music in general. Let's pray that Kylie will recover soon and wiggle her bum to us once more!
