Kylie Minogue: Gets French cultural honor
Kylie Minogue, the musical sensation, has been honored by the country of France. She has received ‘Knight in the Order of Arts and Letters’ for all her contribution to French culture.
Thirty nine year old Australian singer has received this prestigious title the day just before she is about to set on a world tour for her album titled "X." Other recipients are namely Ella Fitzgerald and Bob Dylan.
In praise of Kylie Minogue Culture Minister Christine Albanel referred her as "princess of pop, the uncontested queen of the dance floor." Albanel also praised her for personal courage in her battle against breast cancer.
"The heart, in French, also (refers to) courage, and I want to salute the courage you have shown in publicly revealing, three years ago, that you had been stricken with breast cancer." "This is an exceptional moment for me,” adds the culture minister.
Kylie Minogue’s words fell short in praising Paris.
"I fell in love, and it's a love affair that continues to blossom like an eternal spring," states Kylie Minogue this time in English.
