Golden year for Kylie, 50

The Sunday Times - - NEWS - Full in­ter­view in The Guide

KYLIE Minogue was think­ing ahead when she penned the lyrics for the ti­tle track of her lat­est al­bum Golden.

The lyric goes, “We’re not young, we’re not old, we’re golden”. It be­came her go-to re­ply when any­one asked her about turn­ing 50 in May this year.

“You can’t pre­tend it’s not hap­pen­ing, it’s about hav­ing a dif­fer­ent mind­set and a dif­fer­ent at­ti­tude,” Minogue said.

And the singer ad­mit­ted that while she was ini­tially dread­ing hit­ting the mile­stone birth­day, she’s had a “bril­liant” year — both pro­fes­sion­ally and pri­vately. She’s hap­pily loved-up with GQ cre­ative di­rec­tor Paul

Solomons, pic­tured with Minogue above.

The pair went pub­lic with their re­la­tion­ship at Minogue’s 50th birth­day party in Lon­don in May.

Her lat­est tour, Golden, which kicked off in the UK in Septem­ber and hits Aus­tralia in March, has been re­ceiv­ing glow­ing re­views.

Minogue will play an out­door show at Sir James Mitchell Park in South Perth on March 9.
