Kylie Minogue - Kylie Minogue Inducted Into Aria Hall Of Fame

Subscribe To:

Kylie Minogue has been inducted into the Australian Record Industry Association (Aria) Hall of Fame.

The 'All the Lovers' hitmaker was welcomed into the body - which is considered to be the Australian equivalent of the BRITs - by Australia's Prime Minister Julia Gillard and music journalist Molly Meldrum.

Accompanied to the event by her boyfriend, Spanish model Andres Velencoso, the 43-year-old pop star admitted the hunk has fallen "in love" with her native country.

In tribute to him, she said: "Thank you to my boyfriend Andres, who is in love with this country. You've made him feel very welcome."

Kylie also told guests she felt a sense of "amazement, gratitude, humility, wonderment and pride" at receiving the honour and still being able to work in the music industry.

She also thanked her family for their support throughout the course of her 24-year-career, singling out sister Dannii Minogue for special praise.

Last month, Kylie received an honorary doctorate of Health Sciences from Anglia Ruskin University in Chelmsford, Essex, East England, in recognition for her work promoting breast cancer awareness.

Kylie - who was diagnosed with the disease in 2005 - told graduates at the ceremony: "I never went to university so my dad will be very proud when he sees the pictures. I am here partly for the work I do promoting breast cancer awareness.

"When you are diagnosed yourself it becomes a lot more real and you appreciate at first hand the hard work that goes on to support patients through it."
