Minogue on 'Better the Devil'

Australian pop star Kylie Minogue has admitted in an interview with Elle magazine that she has been forced to change the way that she sings her 1990s hit 'Better The Devil You Know' due to not being able to reach the high notes any more.

She says she now sings the track, which reached number two on the UK singles chart in 1990, in a lower key for performances.

"Better the Devil You Know' was a turning point and an exciting time for me. I was 21, I'd just started dating [Australian singer-songwriter] Michael Hutchence and a different world had opened up. That song is ludicrously high, so when I perform it on tour, we take it down a bit. Some of those songs sound simple, but when you tackle them live, they're not easy."

Minogue's new single 'All The Lovers' makes its radio premiere on May 14.
