After 30 years of living in the United Kingdom, it has been reported that Australia’s very own princess of pop – Kylie Minogue – will be moving back home to Melbourne.
Update: Kylie herself confirmed that after 30 years of living in the UK, she will be relocating back home to Melbourne.
In an interview with Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2 Minogue said she “couldn’t believe” the public reaction to the news, going on to say they “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.”
With the new Kylie Minogue and Years & Years colab ‘A Second To Midnight’ dropping this morning, Minogue went on to hint at the possibility of a forthcoming tour telling listeners she has been “dreaming of doing dates.”
“We are inching closer to being able to do something like that. Patience… I can’t wait. Keep your disco outfit not too far away. Not at the back of the cupboard.”
According to The Mirror, Minogue made the decision after spending time in lockdown with her family in the Melbourne suburb of Camberwell. The tabloid said that Minogue wishes to set a base in Melbourne to be closer to family and friends.

“This year, when she was in Australia for an extended period due to travel restrictions, it gave her time to think about where she wants to be based.”
The source said Minogue’s home visit gave her “a lot of time to think about the future.”
“She wants to see more of her family in the times when she isn’t travelling. So, she will use Australia as her base.”

In an interview with Allure Magazine while in London last year, Minogue said that the pandemic had forced her to think about life’s priorities: “I, like so many people, had the time to reflect and perhaps understand myself and what’s really important.
“I don’t wish anything for myself,” Minogue added.
According to The Mirror, newly filed documents show that Minogue has changed the service address for her four main companies to an address in Hawthorn, in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. Similarly, her place of residence as director of those companies is now registered in Australia.
Another source close to Kylie said: “She’s changed her company details to reflect that she is moving.”
Looking To The Future
Minogue was most recently in Australia in March when she performed in Melbourne at the funeral of Australian music executive and long-term friend of the Minogue’s, Michael Gudinski.

The only hint Minogue may have dropped about her rumoured move down under came on Monday night when she tweeted, “After a weekend of looking at the past I’m taking a second look to the future.”
However, her plans to move might be side railed by Minogue’s most recent love interest, GQ magazine creative director Paul Solomons. The pair were introduced to each other back in 2018, however, Minogue has said Solomons “wouldn’t want to live down Under.”
