Pop superstar Kylie Minogue is worried that fellow star Britney Spears is struggling to cope with growing up in the public eye.

The CAN'T GET YOU OUT OF MY HEAD singer has complete sympathy for the 21-year old beauty - who recently pulled out of the European promotional tour for her new album IN THE ZONE after falling ill - because she grew up under the glare of celebrity too.

Kylie, 35, says, "I look at Britney and, like other people, I think, 'My God, what's happened?'

"But then I have to remind myself that I did the same thing myself. I'm sure she'll survive. Growing up - it ain't easy."
