Kylie Minogue accepts the Icon Award at Billboard’s Women In Music 2024.

This has just been getting up the stairs or for all of us getting through the rain today, that rain soaked entrance. Thanks so much. Oh, hi everyone. I love being in this room. And it’s ridiculous to say, but I have never been in a room like this a pure and vital celebration of women in music, and I’ve been one for 37 years. So, it is especially nice to be here and so wonderful to be in your company. Thank you, Billboard for this incredible honor and recognition.

On the one hand, be still my beating heart, on the one hand, it seems completely surreal. Like is this really happening? How did I get here? And then on the other hand simultaneously, I know the steps it took to get here physically and mentally navigating the highs, the lows, and trying to never lose sight of the in between the terra firma I also know there’s luck, fate, a calling and help. A lot of help from a lot of people over a very long time, in my case. So, thank you to anyone and everyone who has been there for me. My team, many of whom are here tonight. Predominantly women thank you so much. To my fans, wherever you may be, thank you I simply love you. You might go to this possible, I love your thank you.

Closer to home, thank you to my family, and especially my mom who is my icon and my best friend and trust me, you know this night is so inspiring. I will be calling her the second that gets my phone. I know tonight is all about celebrating but I thought on my way here I thought I’m gonna give a shout out to all the times. But we’re not peak moments. There were no fun. But those challenges the lows, the one with this stuff we’ve got to get through sometimes. I wanted to give a big shout out to all the terrible times. Thank you for teaching us that there are horrendous in the moment, but they happen and it’s how we navigate them and what we do with them. So I’m not looking forward to the next one, but it will come so thanks to all the moments that make up this free one. And finally, music I literally am I more and more and more in love with music all the time. So music I love you. And thank you so much. Have a great night everybody.
