Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue has been awarded one of the highest cultural awards possible from France - a 'knight' in the Order of Arts and Letters.

The award will be personally presented to Minogue by the French Minister of Culture and Communications at a ceremony in Paris on May 5.

In a statement she said: “I am deeply honoured to be recognised in this way. French culture has influenced me greatly and I have always had colossal respect for the arts and people of France”.

The 'Chevalier dans L’ordre des Arts et Lettres' will be awarded to her for her “contribution to the enrichment of French culture”.

The star joins the rank of past artists and writers who have been thus honoured including Ella Fitzgerald, Bob Dylan and T. S. Eliot.
