WATCH: Outstanding Kylie Celebrates Award | HQ Glamour Magazine Pics
Kylie Minogue has celebrated her 25th year in pop music - and her birthday - with an Outstanding Contribution Award.
The star, who turned 44 on Monday, was presented with the title by Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears at the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards.
Kylie, said of her award: "I don't know how I ended up here when I started out in dungarees (in Neighbours) pretending I could fix a car. I nearly blew up my first car as I didn't realise it had water and oil and all that stuff."
She added that she "hoped to become a better woman. Like my grandma. She's really my icon. I'd like to dedicate this to my grandma and mother".
Although it's difficult to pinpoint just one area in which Kylie has made an outstanding contribution - music, acting, fashion, fragrance; the pintsized popstral is a whirlwind of multi-talent, wrapped up in an undeniably-adorable package. Thought of as a national treasure despite her Aussie roots (if anyone's an honorary Brit, it's Kylie!), she boasts 33 Top Ten UK singles, seven UK No.1s, record sales in excess of 68million, and two further GLAMOUR trophies after being named Entrepreneur and Woman Of The Year at the 2009 awards.
