Picks and Pans Review: Introducing ... Delta Goodrem Down Under Diva
ON BEING DIAGNOSED WITH HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA IN 2003
It changed everything. I went from being an 18-year-old girl to losing my innocence. Suddenly I looked completely different. My skin was green. I lost all my hair, my eyelashes, my eyebrows. I wasn't myself anymore. I had just broken through, and then this happened. It took a year of treatment, I feel very lucky to feel strong again.
ON HER MENTOR OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN
She's been a guiding light to me. We're both Australian women. We're both cancer survivors. It's a beautiful friendship.
ON DOING SONGS FOR CELINE DION
I had just written ['Eyes on Me'] and then I got a call that they were going to record it [on Dion's Taking Chances]. Oh my God! Because I have looked up to her as a phenomenal singer, I was so overwhelmed and honored that she would sing one of my songs.
ON FIANCÉE BRIAN McFADDEN
He used to be in [Irish boy band] Westlife. He heard me on the radio and went, "That's the voice" [to duet with Westlife on 'All Out of Love']. I met him; later on we became the best of friends and fell in love. He's a very funny Irishman. I learned from him how to let go.
