Singer Kylie Minogue has backtracked on her recent comments saying she’ll never get marriage.

The Can’t Get You Out Of My Head singer, who turned 50 at the end of May, previously said that she’d never marry after splitting up with fiancé Joshua Sasse.

‘Just going through “being engaged” seems like an experiment, because I’d never – as a girl or in all my life – had a vision of getting married,’ the Spinning Around singer shared in April.

‘It’s not something I needed or wanted. My parents never brought me up with the idea of “the big marriage”. I never had it as a goal,’ she admitted, before stating: ‘I don’t think marriage is for me.’

However, it seems Kylie’s changed her tune somewhat, suggesting that she may be a bride after all.

After finding new love with Paul Solomons, the star told the Sun that she may be tempted into wedlock, teasing: ‘I might, I might not.’

‘Life’s, I won’t say a little bit, I’ll say a lot, better. Life’s great. Take that as you wish,’ the singer revealed, after going through an emotional break up with her ex.


When the subject of settling down and marriage came up, Kylie was somewhat non-committal: ‘Like, I might, I might not. I did say, “Maybe it’s not for me.” But the other half is “Maybe, I don’t know”.’

Kylie elaborated: ‘The thing I’ve said for years and years, even when I was probably doing press at 21 years old, is that I think I’ll have a family – I don’t know if I’ll ever get married, though. It’s weird. I’ve done neither.’

The Australian icon shared her milestone birthday with Solomons and even posted a sweet snap on her Instagram to mark the occasion with him.

Captioning the post ‘Birthday girl’, she shared the picture of the couple with her 1.7 million followers.

Despite the pair having been rumoured to have been dating since February, according to a source at the Sun, apparently Kylie is in no rush to settle down: ‘Kylie’s in no rush to get into a serious relationship, but she’s enjoying the attention. It’s no secret she was left feeling very bruised and vulnerable after her break up.’
