Kylie Minogue feels 'incredible anger' over cancer battle

Kylie Minogue is obsessed with memories of her cancer battle and is overcome with "incredible anger" when she dwells on her health crisis.

The Spinning Around hitmaker was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 and underwent surgery and chemotherapy to beat the disease.

She was given the all-clear the following year (06), but admits she's never fully come to terms with her ordeal and often upsets herself thinking about the dark time in her life.

The star tells Paris Match magazine, "Over time, people have a tendency to forget about it. Not me. A day does not go by without me thinking about it. Just looking in a mirror is enough - the scars are moral (sic) and physical.

"There are days when I feel an incredible anger, others when I say that I was very lucky in my misfortune. I always try to present an optimistic picture. At first, I look very open, but basically, I'm pretty reserved. I knew I was strong, I was fortunate to be surrounded by people who really loved me."

But Minogue is grateful to have overcome the disease, adding, "I feel like a cat, having had several lives. In my career as in my personal life, I made enough bad decisions to land me in deep water. Finally, I haven't got out too badly."
