    On the timing of the diagnosis and how it impacted potential parenthood, she said: “Realistically, you’re getting to the late side of things. And, while that wasn’t on my agenda at the time, it changed everything.”I don’t want to dwell on it, obviously, but I wonder what that would have been like.” Advertisement She added: “Everyone will say there are options, but I don’t know. I’m 50 now, and I’m more at ease with my life. “I can’t say there are no regrets, but it would be very hard for me to move on if I classed that as a regret, so I just have to be as philosophical about it as I can.”

      Minogue spoke to the magazine ahead of a big summer, during which she will perform at Glastonbury.She will take to the stage in the Legend slot, 14 years after the breast cancer diagnosis forced her to pull out of her one previously planned appearance at the festival.”I’m bound to cry – it’s going to happen,” she said of the gig.”When I was meant to be there, I watched from Australia. I was dealing with much bigger things back then, but when I’m there it will take me back to when I wasn’t there. But I’ll work through that.”
