But now, the 49-year-old appears to have firmly emerged on the other side, with a new album – Golden, in tow.
She is now sharing with her fans her mental health struggles, and how she copes. Speaking to UK publication Attitude, she says there’s one trick she uses to help her anxiety that she learnt from her grandmother .
“My 98-year-old grandma said years ago: ‘What you need to is lie flat, and you put your arms up and you just lie like that for 10 minutes,'” she said.
Minogue says that on days when she’s filming videos she’ll take a 10 minute break at lunch.
“I’ll go, ‘Right, phone off, dim the lights,’ and try and just be still.”
