In some glorious news for Australia, our queen of pop, Kylie Minogue, has officially announced that she is returning to her home Down Under after several decades living in London and we can’t get it out of our heads. It comes after a turbulent year of lockdowns in the UK, with the singer having resided there—away from her family—for the duration of the pandemic.
Confirming the news on BBC Radio, Minogue remarked “I have spent a lot of time with my family this year in Australia and it felt really good and I have been talking about that for a while.” Whilst this obviously caused stir within her UK fan base, Minogue reassured that she “won’t be a stranger”. “I’m not really going. I’ve lived here for 30 years, I’m always going to be back”, Minogue responded.
According to sources, Kylie plans on relocating to Melbourne, her hometown, upon her return, but won’t be bringing her partner, British GQ Creative Director Paul Solomons, with her. Whilst the pair has been together for 3 years, the couple plan to continue their loving relationship from a distance.
Kylie has had a history of highly publicised relationships, whether that be with late INXS frontman and heartthrob Michael Hutchens or Neighbour’s co-star Jason Donovan, so unsurprisingly has kept her relationship with Paul out of the limelight.
There couldn’t be a more fitting time for Kylie’s return. With restrictions lifting and Mardi Gras just around the corner, we can’t wait to grab our disco pants and make our way to the dance floor. DJ play In Your Eyes.
