Kylie Minogue is a phenomenon, an international star recognised around the world, with more hits in the charts during the last decade than anyone since the Beatles and Elvis Presley. But in the late '80s she was a just a shy teenager growing up in Australia.
How has she become the sophisticated and successful celebrity she is today? What lies behind the beautiful face on the covers of the CDs and glossy magazines? And what is her role in the industry that has grown up around her?
Here is Kylie's definitive story: from her beginnings in the comfortable eastern suburbs of Melbourne, to her years acting as Charlene in 'Neighbours' and on to singing stardom. This is the story of the enormous changes she has weathered, the well-publicised romances with Jason Donovan and Michael Hutchence, and the personal changes that have accompanied them: from innocent girl-next-door to a young woman in charge of her own destiny, with the world at her feet.
