Kylie Minogue has spoken about the heartache of splitting up from her fiancé and that she doesn’t think she’ll ever get married.
During a candid interview in the upcoming issue of Red Magazine, Kylie, 49, revealed how she dealt with the emotional struggle of calling her engagement off to Joshua Sasse in February of 2017 and has since made her reevaluate her marital desires.
‘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 said.
‘Sometimes it takes something like stepping out of your comfort zone, some drama like that, to shake things up.
‘Now being on my own again and reclaiming myself and just asking myself harder questions like: “What do you really want, how did you get here, how do you feel, how are you going to move on?” Now I have enough drama in my life.’
And speaking about the idea of marriage, Kylie insists she’d not be putting herself under any pressure or succumb to expectation: ‘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.
‘I thought, “Maybe I’ve got it all wrong and I should go for it. Maybe I should do what most of the world do. It works for them”.’
But having had the time to assess her current situation and remove that pressure of marrying because it’s expected, she admitted she didn’t think it was for her: ‘Now I’m going to stick to my previous view. I don’t think marriage is for me.’
Kylie also shared how she goes ‘all out’ during the dating stages, and that she can ‘shape shift really easily.’
‘I love to do it actually, it’s part of my job. But when that goes into my private life, that’s not always good,’ the icon admitted.
Speaking about the break-up of her last relationship, the Australian spoke candidly about the inevitability of accepting when something isn’t working and the toll it takes on a person mentally and physically: ‘You can’t negotiate the downfall of your relationship carefully. I did have to rebuild myself, physically and mentally a bit.
‘But no, 2017 was a great year. I loved it. I actually loved it. Because I knew where I stood. I knew what work I had to do and I did it.’
After overcoming cancer in 2005, the singer says she’s since revised her priorities and discovered a different meaning to her life – primarily the fact that she’s still with us: ‘I’m still the same. I am just happy that I’m still here.’
