Kylie Minogue has been awarded a surprise OBE by her adopted country, Britain. She said that she was honored and touched. Evidently, Queen Elizabeth appreciated her battle with breast cancer and soldiering on in her music career despite of her pain and suffering.
The OBE award was usually presented to icons of their industries. Kylie had been a singer for the past 20 years and was considered an icon in her field.
Kylie said that she appreciated the love, support and help given to her as she struggled to return to show biz. She was grateful that the difficult year had passed and she looked forward to 2008.
