"I went from next to nothing then I just ballooned with the drugs, and I guess now maybe I'm just curvy Kylie," theage.com.au quoted her, as saying.
Minogue admitted that she was aware about losing hair, but the weight gain came as a complete surprise to her.
"I've been every other Kylie, who'd have thought it would be curvy Kylie. As far as losing hair and that process, you know it's going to happen, you try and prepare yourself," she said.
"In a strange way I think I was quite well prepared for that because I am so used to having different looks. But, yeah, the body was a bit of a surprise," she added.
