For many festival goers at this year’s Glastonbury, Kylie Minogue’s all-singing, all-dancing performance in the Sunday afternoon ‘legend slot’ was the highlight of the weekend.
However, the Aussie songstress has revealed that, despite drawing huge crowds and gaining critical acclaim for her set, she was disappointed in her performance.
In fact, the 51-year-old pop star struggled to understand why everyone was such a big fan, telling GQ: ‘My reaction was so at odds with the response and the reception it got.’
She continued: ‘I’ve always been so hypercritical [and] I hadn’t done it was well as I wanted.
‘Was this supposed to be the pinnacle of my career? It’s not good enough. I’m better than that.’
From where we were stood, it was a pretty damn impressive show, Kylie!
Our heart breaks a bit hearing that the Better The Devil You Know singer wasn’t a fan of her performance, particularly as it carried so much emotional weight.
Kylie’s Legend performance marked her first time back at the fest since she was forced to pull out in 2005 due to her cancer diagnosis.
Kylie’s finally got to grace the stage, 14 years later and her performance included multiple costume changes, backing dancers and duets with Nick Cave and Chris Martin.
Looking back on her performance now, the pop star, whose career spans four decades, is able to look at Glastonbury a little more fondly.
‘I mean, I am fine now,’ she said, adding: ‘Sort of.’
She said: ‘I guess I had to go through that, watch it, look at it objectively and get that out of my system. It just wasn’t perfection in my eyes.
‘I didn’t hit every note, hit every mark one of the [backing] girls’ mics wasn’t on… Just stuff. But I have to learn to let it live, as it was for everyone else.’
Well, we thought it was pretty amazing!
