Band Or Solo Artist?: Solo
Genre: Pop, Dance
Greatest Hit: "Can't Get You Out of My Head" (2001)

After getting her name out with a role in the Australian soap opera, Neighbours, Kylie Minogue shed her girl-next-door image for a sexier persona. Stateside, we know her best for ubiquitous 2001 hit "Can't Get You Out of My Head," but she was already a superstar down under, so to speak.  But her album sales and striking beauty aren't the only two reasons she deserves respect; Minogue battled breast cancer a few years into her career and won the battle resiliently.
