Kylie Minogue is happy to admit she will "never sound" like Christina Aguilera.

The Australian singer is celebrating 25 years in the music industry this year. She is proud of all she has achieved and loves her voice – even if she can't match the vocal gymnastics of other successful musicians.

"I will never sound like Christina Aguilera, but that's OK. I have pipes!" she laughed to Closer magazine.

The 44-year-old star is famed for her extravagant stage shows, which usually include many costume changes. She has performed in corsets by Dolce & Gabbana in the past and in heavy headdresses and says people should be impressed by how easy she makes it look.

"And you think strutting around on stage in seven-inch heels and a dress I can barely balance in while walking over five semi-clad men is easy? Think again!" she laughed.

Kylie has notched up over 68 million record sales worldwide during her career and has won BRIT and Grammy Awards.
