Singer Kylie Minogue says she knew she was not a marriage person, but got engaged because “that’s what people do”.
The 49-year-old singer split from her fiance Joshua Sasse last year, just six months after they got engaged, and she says she got ”swept up in the moment”, reported Contactmusic.
”Was I really going to get married? I had the ring on the finger, didn’t I? But we hadn’t actually planned a wedding. It was a beautiful moment and I loved it, but then, you know, as time goes on… What happened? It’s complicated. To try to put it in a nutshell would not only be too difficult but unfair. ‘Actually, I never thought I was the marrying kind.
“In my song ‘A Lifetime to Repair’ I say, ‘I thought I’d settle down, a happy-ever-after princess…’ I know for a lot of people that’s where they want to end up but, for me, it never was. ‘I guess I thought, ‘That’s what people do, maybe I’ll give it a try.’ ‘But either it isn’t for me or I was with the wrong person. I was swept up in the moment and I’m not afraid to admit that,” Minogue said.
The singer says it was a ”relief” when her relationship with Joshua ended as they had been having problems for some time.
”Making the decision to end the relationship was the hardest part. After the break-up people were saying, ‘I hope you’re OK’, and I thought, you know I am OK. I’ve coped with the help of laughter, friends, music and family.
”Once it was done it was a relief to both of us because it’s hard.
