Kylie Minogue Reveals How She Copes With Anxiety

Kylie Minogue Reveals How She Copes With Anxiety

Kylie Minogue graces the cover of Attitude‘s May 2018 issue, out on newsstands on Thursday (March 29).

Here’s what the pop superstar had to say…

On why Golden is her most personal album yet: “I’m not writing from a place of heartbreak. I was a bit broken, I wasn’t feeling very strong at a certain point, and we’ve all been there, we know what that’s like. But I tend to bounce back pretty quickly, I’m pragmatic about stuff. It’s looking rationally, with heart, with humour, to where I’m at… I hope you can feel on the album there’s no blame, I’m not hanging on to anything. I’m just taking a really good look at where I think I am in my life.”

On dealing with anxiety: “There are a lot of voices in my head. I guess part of that is our brains, they’re problem solvers, tick tick tick tick tick… [When I’m feeling anxious] I put the kettle on and make a cup of tea… But if I knew the answer I would do it and I would have no anxiety… They say that the fast track to happiness is gratitude and it’s true, just think that thought.”

On how rather than seek professional help for anxiety she resorts to a more traditional method of healing: “There’s enough discussion in my head. I probably would benefit from [counseling] but I don’t really like it… 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’. And she’s so right, so I will. On a video day, during lunch I’ll go, ‘Right, phone off, dim the lights,’ and try and just be still.”
