Australian music guru Molly Meldrum landed an interview with long-time friend Kylie Minogue for Sunday Night. He chatted with the diminutive pop star on the eve of her big Aphrodite Les Folies tour in Scandinavia (yes, it’s coming to Australia!) about her big comeback and what lies ahead for the future. He got a preview of the amazing, water-filled sets and some of her exciting, Greek mythology-inspired costumes. The big talking point, of course, was her fight with breast cancer, and Kylie has just celebrated her five-year cancer-free mark. When Molly commented on how brave she seemed during her battle, she said, “You might’ve seen the bravery. I don’t think the public really saw . . . well, I stayed indoors, and it was my family who supported me through really rottened up moments.”
In promos for Sunday Night all week we’d seen Kylie wiping tears from her eyes and having to leave the room during their interview. Which moment really touched her? When Molly said she had inspired so many girls to go out and have tests for cancer. After making a quick return to her seat she told him, “Now let me just tell you. The reason that that gets me is — and I think the greatest part of my job and what I do — is the humanity of it. And there are certain moments where that really cuts through.”

As for the future, the other big question on everyone’s lips is whether Kylie will tie the knot with boyfriend Andres Segura. Her response was: “If you want to send my PA over the edge, ask her if she thinks I’m gonna get married one day. She goes, ‘I couldn’t cope,’” before adding, “It might happen! Who knows? He’s a natural with children.” She admitted that she always thought she’d have kids before being married, or that she saw herself as a mother before being a wife. In terms of having children one day, “We’ll just have to see. I’m not sure that’s part of my future.” But the always-cheery star isn’t going to let that get her down. As she told Molly, for the moment she feels “very content. I’m still challenged, but content with those challenges.”
