Kylie Minogue’s documentary reveals her concert collapseNovember 26th, 2007 - 6:51 pm ICT by admin
London, Nov 26 (ANI): Kylie Minogue’s documentary about her battle with breast cancer was aired on November 25 on Britain’s Channel 4, featuring the pop star’s collapse during a show in Manchester.
The dramatic footage featured a distraught Minogue trying desperately not to cry as she walked the stage trying to sing one more song.
However, the Australian diva was forced to go backstage, where she broke down into tears.
“I hate to let you all down but I’m just going to do one more song,” news.com.au quoted Minogue as telling the audience.
In the documentary White Diamond: A Personal Portrait of Kylie Minogue, the singer revealed that after the collapse, she couldnt move a step further.
“I was really weak, dizzy and couldn’t sing. I was hyperventilating and panicking and in tears and then we stopped and there was this gap that seemed like it went forever,” she said.
“At the end of the medley I go through the back doors and at the top of the stairs I just sat there and burst into tears with my head in my hands. Let alone the tour, everything just collapsed. Everything. The world kinds of stopped spinning,” she added.
The footage showed Minogue being carried by a security guard back to her dressing room, and her head lying heavily against the man’s shoulder.
She was not aware that she had breast cancer when all that happened.
She revealed in the documentary that she was distressed about feeling so unwell.
“The last time I was really ill on the stage was before I was diagnosed so I had a lot of, kind of, I felt really um pummelled. I was quite tormented in fact,” she said.
The documentary also features the pop star acknowledging the support she received from her now ex beau, actor Oliver Martinez, after her May 2005 diagnosis.
“Ollie was amazing I have to say, really supportive through Showgirl 1, and was with me when I was diagnosed,” she said.
“I have learnt that when the going gets tough, or in a crisis, you learn a lot about people. And I, I can’t tell people enough, how amazing he was,” she added. (ANI)
