Kylie Minogue: I'm still a worrier

Kylie Minogue has said she still suffers from anxiety about her career - despite her huge success.

The pop princess, 46, has sold millions of albums and never dropped out of the limelight.

But she revealed: "I still worry about a lot of things, and my anxiety levels can go through the roof, especially on tour, although I don't think they're as bad as they used to be."

Kylie, who is about to embark on more live dates, added: "I trust my team, and new people are brought in because they bring something fresh and a new energy.

"Some things feel different this time around, with this tour. It's hard to put my finger on what, but there is a different energy. I've got I-don't-know-how-many tours under my belt now, but the excitement doesn't diminish at all."

The former Voice coach said that the hardest thing about touring is adjusting to life afterwards.

"It can be tough and I believe there's a recognised condition of post-tour depression," she said. "When you've been away on a tour like this, or any sort of tour where your adrenalin is going every day, it can happen.

"I have friends who say they look forward to doing nothing after a tour, but I always tell them that's the worst thing you can do. Your adrenal glands are screaming, ready to go, so you have to keep active.

"Whenever I get off tour, I make sure I see all my friends to find out what they've been doing. It's like, 'Enough about me, what have you been doing?' It's very easy to get out of the loop, so it's great catching up."

:: Kylie's 12th album, Kiss Me Once, is out now. She's touring the UK and Ireland from September 24.
