Pop star and TV personality Dannii Minogue is flying high as a judge with hit show X Factor these days, but the star has revealed that her life hasn't always been so happy. Speaking in an interview shown on Australian TV, Dannii explained she needed a bit of fun and happiness in her life after her divorce from Nip Tuck star Julian McMahon in the mid-nineties. The singer injected this excitement by transforming herself and choosing to have a boob job.According to, Dannii said: "I had a little bit of a transformation at that time. The girls arrived. It was something I needed to do at that time. "There's a funny story about me showing my gay friend them. I was like, 'Check these out!' "I was proud of them, very happy. I needed that fun and happiness back in my life." The recent birth of baby Ethan has had an impact on the amount of time Dannii spends on her looks, but the star continues to put the effort in for her X Factor appearances. The Daily Mail reports that she has tripled her clothing budget, taking the total up to 60,000 for the series. Earlier this year, the Minogue sisters shared their secrets for staying young, which included a number of non surgical treatments such as Botox and a range of skin care products. It's been claimed that fellow X Factor judge Cheryl Cole has also had a little help from Botox, although she has denied the rumours.
