LATEST: Pop beauty Kylie Minogue has been forced to cancel her headlining spot at Britain's Glastonbury Festival next month (JUN05) - so she can recover from breast cancer treatment.

The SPINNING AROUND star discovered she had the disease earlier this week (begs16MAY05) during a visit to her family in her home town of Melbourne.

And she has apologised to fans for postponing the Australian leg of her SHOWGIRL TOUR and her performances at the annual Somerset festival.

The Antipodean singer was so excited about performing at the legendary festival, she took up drum lessons to impress the crowd with her new musical skill.

But her illness has left her no alternative but to scrap her Glastonbury debut, which had outraged fellow headline act Ian Brown, who insisted the event should be exclusively rock-based.
