Kylie Minogue Sends Advice To Troubled Spears
(contactmusic.com) - Pop superstar Kylie Minogue sympathises with troubled singer Britney Spears - because she once suffered a breakdown herself. The Spinning Around hitmaker blames fame for the demise of talented young stars and urges the mother-of-two to seek professional help before it is too late. She says, "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. "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. "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."
