The day I met Kylie!

Kylie and Yasmeen

Kylie Minogue has written a children's book called The Showgirl Princess.

Press Packer Yasmeen got an exclusive interview with her when she was at her book signing event in London.

"I couldn't believe it when I was told I was going to interview Kylie Minogue.

I woke up and got ready to venture down to Oxford Street in London.

I was extremely nervous.

It didn't help that on my way to the station it was raining and I got soaked!

Children queuing

On the train I was again very nervous but my mum said that it would be OK and that I would have a good time.

When we arrived at the book shop, there was already a queue of children waiting outside.

Some had really dressed up, wearing fairy dresses or glittery clothes.

It was a great atmosphere, there were performers to keep the crowd entertained, including a woman riding a unicycle!

Kylie songs

We made our way inside, collected our wristbands and went to the area where I was going to interview her.

The atmosphere inside was busy and exciting.

They were playing Kylie's songs to get everyone in the mood.

I then had a bit of time to rehearse my questions for Kylie.

Naughtiest thing

Finally, the big moment arrived, Kylie walked through the door and straight up to me!

She looked amazing.

I shook her hand and gave her a hug.

Then once we were ready I asked her some questions.

One of the questions I asked her was what was the naughtiest thing you did when you were our age?

Kylie replied by saying: "When I was younger I tried to run away from home, but when I got to the gate I said no and turned back."

After all my questions she signed my book.

Amazing day

I was so pleased - especially because I was so nervous and in fact it went really well.

Kylie then went to speak to other people from the press but I had forgotten to give her the flowers I brought for her.

I couldn't believe it when she actually walked back over to me so I could give them to her.

We had another chat and then she went to do her book signing.

It was an amazing day - my mum was right!"
