Kylie Minogue says chemotherapy was like being hit with an atomic bomb. The singer has revealed that after having a partial mastectomy she underwent a six-month chemotherapy course which she describes as a â€œprison sentenceâ€. Kylie told Elle magazine: â€œI canâ€™t quite articulate it. Itâ€™s like a prison sentence. Itâ€™s a bit like being in an atomic explosion ...â€
Kylie says that throughout her darkest moments, one person was always by her side â€” her lover Olivier Martinez. She says she began to look forward to small things like drinking coffee. â€œIt would get to five oâ€™clock and Iâ€™d think, â€˜I got through another day!â€™ If you can only have one coffee a day, it better be damn good coffee. That trip down the street, Iâ€™d relish that moment.
