Australian singer Kylie Minogue became an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) Thursday, receiving the award from Prince Charles at a ceremony in London. Minogue said:
"I was totally blown away to receive this. I expected to be a little nervous, obviously very excited, but it was very emotional seeing all these people from different walks of life joining together for this event. It is an incredible honour for me to receive this award. It makes me feel both humble and proud to be recognized for doing a job that I love so much."
