London, Dec 3 (IANS) Australian singer Dannii Minogue is scared of going for drastic weight loss regimes after watching a close friend ‘nearly die’ in a battle against anorexia.
‘I’d been very good friends with this girl since primary school. I distinctly remember going into a white hospital room and seeing her lying there, strapped to the bed. I was just a young teenager and it was so horrendous. I watched my friend nearly die from anorexia,’ she told a magazine.
Minogue has struggled with public scrutiny of her figure, but credits her self-confidence with helping her overcome the criticism, reports contactmusic.com.
‘There was no headline that someone could write about me that would make me do that to myself… There were some horrific headlines. Had I not been confident about myself and my body, I would have been in a load of trouble,’ she added.
