The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

KYLIE Minogue says she’s now more likely to be­come a step­mother than have her own chil­dren.

With her 50th birth­day just a few weeks away, the un­lucky in love pop singer con­cedes she con­sid­ered hav­ing chil­dren on her own.

“I did pur­sue that,” Minogue tells the May is­sue of Vogue Aus­tralia.

“That didn’t ... that ob­vi­ously wasn’t the path for me, ei­ther. But, I think now ... I love be­ing an aunty. And I mean, if I was to meet any­one — that sounds re­ally gloomy — but if there’s one per­son on the planet Earth who might like me and I might like them, (then) the chances are pretty high that that per­son would have chil­dren any­way. So I think it’s more (likely) in that vein, than hav­ing chil­dren of my own.”

From the late Michael Hutchence to model An­dres Ve­len­coso, Minogue has long been un­lucky in love.

She most re­cently strug­gled through a messy breakup with ac­tor Joshua Sasse, re­veal­ing she suf­fered a “slow, steady ner­vous break­down”.

“Last year was a lit­tle stress­ful,” she told the magazine, in stores on April 30.

“I think we all know that things were not go­ing great in my re­la­tion­ship, but, you know, when you’re kind of de­luded and you’re think­ing maybe, maybe ... maybe this needs sav­ing. Turns out, it didn’t. But your fam­ily, they can see through all of that, and they prob­a­bly just want to shake you and go: ‘Can’t you see what’s hap­pen­ing, and what’s hap­pen­ing to you?’ ”

Ca­reer-wise, Minogue is cheer­ing. Her new al­bum, her 14th stu­dio of­fer­ing — Golden — topped the charts here and in the UK al­though she was forced to can­cel her Aus­tralian promo trip due to ill­ness.
