Kylie Minogue Wants Her Own Family, Not Adopting


Pop princess Kylie Minogue has denied reports she plans to adopt an Aboriginal child, but says she would like to have a family of her own "some day".

Minogue, 39, who has successfully resumed her pop career after beating breast cancer, told Madison magazine's January edition she believed the incorrect reports of her adoption plans originated with the United Kingdom's News of the World.

"There's so much noise and waffle about me and my future family," she told the magazine, which is on sale tomorrow.

"But if asked if I'd like to have a family I say, yes, I would love to some day.

"We'll see if and how that might happen."

Minogue, who recently released her first new studio album in four years and the 10th album of her career, X, said some of the songs on it reflected her recent health battle, but mostly it was more light-hearted.

"I just want to sing about the disco, which might seem flippant, but it would have been wrong to have an album that was too far one way or the other," she told the magazine.

"I wanted to deliver something that was, in a sense, what people would expect.

"Something you can listen to when you're getting ready to go out, or when you're out.

"But I also have songs like Cosmic or No More Rain, where it acknowledges my past two years, but that's not something I wanted to dwell on."

Minogue said she still did not "have a nice set of words to describe" what her battle was like, but she was determined to no longer be a passenger in life.

"I work very hard and I'm very driven," she said.

"But I do also feel that our destinies are pre-written.

"I've come to the realisation that this (being a performer) is what I do and that's why I want to embrace it even more now, to not let it just carry me along as a passenger on this ride.

"This is my life."
