London, Jan 30 : Pop princess Kylie Minogue has offered a few words of wisdom to Britney Spears whose life seems to be taking a turn for the worse.
On watching Spears' life heading for a complete meltdown, Kylie spoke about the trouble fame brings with it.
"I wish someone would write a manual about fame because it's not easy. I'm always loath to say that because there are a lot more difficulties out there that people deal with every day - but when fame is handed to you, it is unique," the Sun quoted Kylie as saying.
"It's not to the same extreme, but I can remember having a mini-meltdown myself - and unless you've got good people around to support you, you've got a problem," she said.
"Who knows what is going on in her life? Britney isn't that young any more. I think she will still come back but it's like she's taken an extended holiday. Whatever help she needs, she should reach out and get it," she added.
Kylie has herself been able to steer clear of the many pitfalls that fame brings with it for 20 years, she has in fact been able to stay away from such things as drugs, dodgy boyfriends and career crises like a complete professional.
Britney is said to be on the verge of a full nervous breakdown, the latest crisis having taken place between her and her "adviser" Sam Lutfi, who has banned her from seeing her British photographer lover Adnan Ghalib.
