Cathy Dennis has declared that Kylie Minogue is a "genius".

The British singer-songwriter, who penned Kylie's 2001 hit Can't Get You Out Of My Head, was quick to give all credit to the Australian singer for getting her music career back on track.

"It's wonderful to be an element in her career but I think she's an amazing woman - she springs back to life again and again, she is a genius at reinventing herself so she deserves everything she gets," she said.

Cathy - who has written chart-topping tracks for Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Sugababes - said there's no formula for success.

"I have no idea. I just turn up, start scribbling and keep my fingers crossed - and that's about it," she said. "I'm quite a selfish person so generally I try and write for myself, and if somebody else likes it, then fantastic."

Surprisingly, she's not keen on the songwriting process.

"I like the end of the song - that's my favourite bit - then I can relax. I actually find the whole process quite stressful so the end is quite good," she added.
