Kylie Awarded French Honour

2 05 2008

Kylie 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 presented to Kylie by the French Minister of Culture and Communications at a ceremony in Paris on the 5th of May, just one day before she opens her new X2008 tour in the city.

Kylie gave a statement to the press saying, “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. Previous recipients of the award include Ella Fitzgerald, Meryl Streep, Robert Redford, Bob Dylan and T.S.Eliot.
