Kylie Minogue uses self help books

KYLIE Minogue has credited a self-help book 'Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking' with helping her personally and professionally, particular with her decision to join record label Roc Nation.

The 'I Should Be So Lucky' hitmaker has gone through some big changes in her life both personally and professionally - including her split from Andres Velencoso to her upcoming album 'Kiss Me Once' - and she says it was an "epiphany" when she signed with Jay Z's record label Roc Nation.

She told The Sun on Sunday: "Signing to Roc Nation was an epiphany not to go with them, but it makes a change.

"I met with [the label's co-founder] Jay Brown and I happened to be reading a book called 'Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking' at the time, which helped me decided in the first 60 seconds that I met him, 'You're the one, let's do it.' "

While her career might have been given a boost, the 45-year-old singer has insisted her famous bottom is going "south" with age.

She recently said: "In your 40s things tend to go south. I don't think I can live up to expectations.

"I see myself in the mirror every morning and it's not the same as what everyone else sees. It's a less polished version."
