Kylie confirmed the end of her engagement to the British actor earlier this month.
The 48-year-old singer confirmed her split from Joshua, 29, a fortnight ago, thanking fans for their support on Instagram. The breakup was reported to be due to Kylie’s suspicions that Joshua was getting close to Spanish actress Marta Milans.

The popstar apparently gets to keep her first name trademarked.
Kylie Minogue and Kylie Jenner have been locked in a bitter copyright battle ever since the latter tried to trademark just her first name, despite the former having used the mononym for almost thirty years. Now it seems that the popstar has successfully blocked the reality star's application.
Kylie Minogue wins trademark battle against Kylie Jenner
Jenner tried to apply to trademark 'Kylie' in 2014, which was just before she launched her popular lip kits for Kylie Cosmetics. Naturally, Minogue and her team immediately blocked the application to the US Patent and Trademark Office in February 2016 arguing that she was an 'internationally-renowned performing artist, humanitarian and breast cancer activist known worldwide simply as 'Kylie'', while her 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' counterpart was simply 'a secondary reality television personality'.

Kylie apparently ended their year-long engagement when Sasse "grew close" to another woman.
Nearly a year after they announcement their engagement following a whirlwind romance, Kylie Minogue has reportedly called off her marriage to fiancé Joshua Sasse amid allegations of infidelity.
The 48 year old pop princess met Sasse, 19 years her junior, on the set of his TV series ‘Galavant’ in 2015, when she made a guest appearance on the show. Months later, in February 2016, they announced that they had gotten engaged.
However, according to a report in The Sun on Thursday (February 2nd), Kylie threw Joshua out of her home in West London this week after she discovered he “grew close” to 34 year old Spanish actress Marta Milans. The report broke just a few days after she was pictured without her engagement ring.

The Ab Fab movie hits cinemas on July 1st.
But for eager fans Kylie’s cover is already available to pre-order on download. ‘This Wheel's On Fire’ has always been the show’s theme and was covered by Julie Driscoll and Adrian Edmondson for the sitcom.

There'll be a Ramsay Street reunion on the set of new Australian movie 'Flammable Children', which begins filming in October.
Former ‘Neighbours’ alumni Kylie Minogue and Guy Pearce are set to reunite when they star in a new movie together, marking the first time they’ve been on set together since their Ramsay Street days over nearly 30 years ago.
They’re both set to work on comedy movie Flammable Children under the aegis of director Stephan Elliott, whom Pearce has worked with before on ‘90s cult classic The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert. Radha Mitchell, star of London Has Fallen, is also due to feature in the film.
It's the battle of the Kylies.
Kylie Minogue is the one and only Kylie according to her recent notice of opposition against Kylie Jenner's request to use the mononym as her trademark, and she's not letting up anytime soon. The 'I Should Be So Lucky' singer also slammed the reality star for her career and fame and is furious that anyone would consider taking her brand from her.
Kylie Jenner wants to be known as 'Kylie'
'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star Kylie Jenner is quickly becoming a hugely recognisable brand. She's branching into cosmetics, fashion, mobile apps and literature so it's no wonder that now she wants to make it official by trademarking her first name. Unfortunately for her though, it's already been done. She filed an application for the trademark because of advertising reasons, and it was released in August 2015 for opposition. It seems that Minogue has finally stepped forward to challenge it.

Over the last six weeks, 47 year old Kylie has been photographed sporting a sizeable diamond ring on her finger, leading to rumours that she was engaged to Sasse, a British actor famous for playing the title role on ABC’s musical comedy ‘Galavant’.

"I met a new person and I fell in love. Yes, he was this wild guy, he was the rocker, he was all of that. But I'm always at pains to say, he was Byron-esque, he was poetic, he was cultured and hilarious and tender, he was all of these other things,” Minogue said of Hutchence.

Speaking to the Mirror, the 24 year old singer was asked about her appointment to the panel of ‘The Voice’, when she said: “Without pulling the whole female card, I think it has always been harder for females in all aspects.

A fictional account of 24 hours in the life of Nick Cave has received critical acclaim.
Nick Cave's talent for songwriting had never been disputed. In fact, many would consider the Australian amongst our generation's most talented songsmiths and so it came as no surprise that his screenwriting debut, 2007's The Proposition, was heralded as a sharp, sprawling epic.
Cave's new movie, 20,000 Days on Earth, has been in development for some time. The musician co-wrote and stars in the film, about a fictional 24 hours in the life of the Bad Seeds man. It premiered in-competition in the World Cinema Documentary Competition at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in January, winning two awards. And now, on the eve of its bow in the cinemas, critics agree that 20,000 Days on Earth is one of the most intriguing movies of the year.

Jenny Lewis isn't the only former actress to find musical success.
There seems to be a special musical buzz in the entertainment business at the moment reserved for screen actresses who are wanting to spread their wings in their career - and maybe earn some more money too. Whether it's Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande blowing everyone away with her stunning vocal range as she gears up to release her second album this summer, or indie favourite Jenny Lewis becoming ever more successful with her solo singing career after a good three years fronting a band, it appears that some actresses just can't resist testing their pipes in the recording studio. Even Hollywood sensation Scarlett Johansson dipped her toes in musical waters back in 2008 with her well-praised debut 'Anywhere I Lay My Head'.
While we're half expecting Keira Knightley to release a record any day now after singing on her latest drama 'Begin Again', we look at the film world's biggest female musical successes.
Jenny Lewis: Singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis this week released Voyager, her critically acclaimed third studio album. Although best known for her time fronting indie favourites, Rilo Kiley, music wasn't actually Lewis's first career choice, instead the Vegas native was intially known as an actress. Her early showbiz experience mainly consisted of TV roles, with small parts in the likes of 'Baywatch', 'Brooklyn Bridge' and 'The New Twilight Zone' in the 80s and early 90s as well as film stints on 'Troop Beverly Hills' and 'The Wizard'. Her last major acting venture came with 1995's black and white drama 'Don's Plum' alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire before she formed Rilo Kiley with then-boyfriend Blake Sennett.

In true Nick Cave style, the lines between real-life and fiction are blurred in a drama documentary based on a supposed 24 hours in the life of this seminal Australian rocker. He contemplates his 20,000th day on Earth as he explores his earliest memories, his biggest influences, his biggest dreams and his darkest fears. We see how his creative impulses are brought to life and how he feels transformed during his highly exciting stage performances.
Nick Cave has been the frontman of alternative rock band Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds since 1983, with the group only recently landing their first number one in their native Australia with 2013 album 'Push the Sky Away'. Cave has had a fulfilling creative career outside of the band too, having authored several books and composed several film scores - including this one.
'20,000 Days On Earth' has been artistically directed by film collaborators Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard ('Do You Love Me Like I Love You', 'Run for Me'). It's evocative presmise won it the FIPRESCI Prize at the Istanbul International Film Festival and two awards for directing and editing at Sundance. The movie is scheduled to hit cinemas in the UK on September 19th 2014.
Kylie Minogue looked dazzling in white as she smiled at the paparazzi and chatted to some reporters on the red carpet at the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York. The singer has long been an advocate for LGBT causes among her many humanitarian ventures.
Kaiser Chief's frontman Ricky Wilson is still unsure whether or not he will return for the fourth series of 'The Voice UK'.
Ricky Wilson, a popular coach on The Voice UK, has revealed he hasn’t yet been signed on to return to the talent show for the next series. When asked by The Sun whether he would be returning for the next season of the show, Wilson replied, “I haven’t been asked yet, for a start.”
It's still unclear whether Ricky Wilson will return to The Voice UK
Wilson indicated that fellow coach Kylie Minogue’s decision to leave the show may impact his own decision on whether or not to return. “It would be weird doing it without Kylie,” Wilson explained, “She helped me get over the edge…Kylie, Tom Jones and Will.I.Am were a huge part of the experience. If I do it again I will definitely miss her.”
Kylie confirms The Voice bosses' worst fears
The Voice may have been given a popularity boost via a certain Australian popstar, but it’ll have to source a new famous face for next season as Kylie Minogue has confirmed she won’t be returning as judge.

Kylie Minogue has quit The Voice after just one season.
Signing up Kylie Minogue for The Voice was the BBC's way of proving that this singing contest - with its spinning chairs and blind auditions - could pack as much of a punch as The X-Factor, despite losing Danny O'Donoghue and Jessie J following its second season. The Australian was certainly a marquee signing, and alongside Tom Jones and Will.i.am (and the fella from Kaiser Chiefs), the BBC show had a judging line-up that could rival that of its ITV rival.

Now, The Voice executives are on the hunt for another big name to fill the gap left by Minogue, who has quit the show after just one season to focus on her live touring.

BBC bosses are desperate for Kylie to return
The Voice has emerged as one of the U.K’s most popular shows after a slow start in the shadow of Simon Cowell’s The Voice. Getting renewed for another season was expected, but one thing that is still up in the air is the personal; will Kylie be going for another series?
Kylie Minogue is a wanted woman
BBC One Controller Charlotte Moore said in a statement: “It’s been fantastic to see The Voice return in top form to kick start BBC One’s brilliant year so far, the new line-up has really connected with audiences and I look forward to it returning to the channel next year.”

Kylie Minogue has landed a starring role in a Sky Arts TV comedy based on Andy Warhol's muse Edie Sedgwick. The Australian pop princess - who is dedicating more time to the acting side of her career - will appear in an edition of Playhouse Presents titled Hey Diddly Dee, with comic Peter Serafinowicz playing the enigmatic artist.
The drama follows a group of actors putting on a production about Warhol, with Minogue playing a Sedgwick-style character called Bibbi. "When the script was sent to me, I read it and knew instinctively I wanted to be part of this project. In Hey Diddly Dee, Marc [Warren, director] has created a beautiful and quirky story," said Kylie in a statement. Sedgwick was an artist student who joined Warhol at the infamous 'Factory' - the pop artist's studio and debauched hangout for a group of cool New York eccentrics, some of them drug addicts. She gained fame as a Warhol muse and successful fashion model, though died in 1971 at the age of 28. A coroner ruled her death as "undetermined/accident/suicide" though her death certificate stated the immediate cause was "probably acute barbiturate intoxication." She was played by British actress Sienna Miller in the 2006 movie Factory Girl, which received mixed reviews from critics, though most lauded the actress' individual performance. Film 4 said, "Sienna Miller guarantees herself a bit more than 15 minutes with a strong performance in an otherwise dazed and confused film." James Christopher of The Times said, "Miller is a genuine surprise as the damaged star. But the film leaves her very much as it finds her: a clueless naïve."
Minogue has appeared in a number of movies including Leos Carax's frankly bizarre Holy Motors, which was tipped to win the Palme d'Or in 2012, though eventually lost out to Amour. The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw gave it 5 stars, saying, "A gorgeous furry teacup of a film." Hey Diddly Dee is due to screened on Sky Arts on March 14, which will be followed by a Playhouse Presents episode written and directed by Idris Elba, and another by artist Grayson Perry.

The Australian pop stars took to the stage at last night's The Hit Factory Live - Christmas Cracker (Dec 21) at the O2 Arena in London to perform their 1988 smash hit 'Especially For You,' with the crowd erupting into great applause straight after. The show was put on to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Stock, Aitken, Waterman; the pop music powerhouses behind such acts as Rick Astley, Bananarama, Mel & Kim, Dead or Alive as well as the Australian twosome.
Having shot to fame in the Australian soap opera Neighbours, Minogue and Donovan followed up this recognition with two of the most recognised pop careers in the 80's and 90's, and for Kylie, the 2000's too. The Aussie twosome were joined by Rick Astley, Bananarama, Steps, 2 Unlimited, Sonia, Princess and Pepsi & Shirlie on the night, with all the acts taking to the stage to close the show with a rendition of Slade's 'Merry Xmas Everybody.'

The 'DNA' hitmakers insisted that Ri Ri's management prevented any contact between the star and the contestants. 'Her management wouldn't let anybody meet her, but she walked past me and said, 'Your hair is awesome!' This was when I had my head half-shaved, which I hated, so it cheered me up', Leigh Anne Pinnock told We Love Pop magazine. They also shared the stage with Lady GaGa who was apparently a lot easier to talk to. 'Lady Gaga was amazing', said Jesy Nelson.
Being new on the pop scene, that wasn't the last time they were to be a little starstruck by their fellow pop icons as they recently got the chance to meet Aussie singer Kylie Minogue. 'We met Kylie at the BRITs', said Jesy. 'I kept looking at her bum because she's got a really nice bottom.' The girls hope, however, that they'll be the ones the other stars are dying to meet revealing that they plan to become the world's biggest girl band within the next three years. 'You've got to aim high', Leigh Anne added.

Singer and actress Kylie Minogue gets out of her car on her arrival at 'The Wendy Williams Show' and allows a fan to come and get a quick photo with her. She signs a couple of autographs and poses for the paparazzi with a huge smile on her face. She is snapped again as she leaves the building following her appearance on the show wearing a blue leopard print dress.
Kylie Minogue’s new movie Holy Motors has impressed the critics. It’s been a long time since the Aussie pop star ventured in the word of movies but with this art-house offering, directed by Leos Carax, she seems to have done herself proud. It’s an unusual film, seemingly with little in the way of a fixed narrative structure, but that’s part of its off-beat charm.
The Telegraph review reveals that Kylie’s starring moment, though brief, is a highlight: ” Kylie Minogue, memorably, singing an ex-lover’s torch song along the dusty walkways of a derelict department store. We’re left with a vast amount to puzzle over and process. One thing’s for sure: you may struggle to wrest unified meaning out of this entirely irreducible movie, but like Kylie’s other featured song, you can’t get it out of your head.” Equally, The Guardian describes Kylie Minogue’s performance in Holy Motors as “stylish yet gentle.” The New Statesman review does a better job of un-ravelling the meaning of Holy Motors by explaining “the central enigma of Holy Motors rests on where life ends and performance begins, or whether the distinction is irrelevant.”
Also starring Eva Mendes and Denis Lavant, Holy Motors may seem like a peculiarly avant-garde excursion for Kylie but she seems quite at home in front of the camera and look relaxed, though evidently excited at the movie’s recent London premiere, where she revealed that she “couldn’t not do” the film.
Indescribably insane, this outrageously inventive French drama is so bracingly strange that we can't help but love every moment. It's certainly not like any movie you've ever seen before, and French director Carax packs it with so many offbeat touches - from wildly unexpected casting to witty movie references - that watching it is almost like a fever dream.
It's the story of Oscar (Lavant), who goes to work in a white stretch-limousine with his driver Celine (Scob). But the limo is actually his office, and his job entails dressing up in full make-up to play nine roles over the course of the day. These include a scabby homeless woman, a dying husband and a freaky green mischief-maker who invades a funeral and bites off people's fingers. But as the day progresses, Oscar begins to crack under the strain. Is it because of the job's huge emotional demands or because he's not living his own life?
The film is like a razor sharp satire of reality TV and social networking, as Carax cuts through the layers of artificiality of modern life. At the centre, these are all actors playing actors in a variety of scenarios. But who is watching? Some of these scenes are sexy and funny, while others are terrifying or darkly moving. But for all of the intensity of feeling, the situations are essentially shallow simply because they're not actually real. And Carax pushes each segment far beyond what we expect.

Kylie Minogue turned up in London on Tuesday night for the red carpet premiere of her new movie Holy Motors, which opens next week in the UK and next month in the US. A hit at Cannes, the film is a surreal masterpiece that really does your head in. And Kylie's great in it.
The big release in the US this weekend is Dredd, which isn't actually a remake of the 1995 Sylvester Stallone action romp. It's a completely reimagined thriller based on the same series of comics, a surprisingly intelligent blockbuster, and a rare 18-certificate film that topped the UK box office chart a couple of weeks back.

It's probably fair to say that the longer an artist is in the music business, the higher expectations become, especially when it comes to live performance. So, recorded over two nights at London's 20,000 capacity O2 Arena, twenty-something years into her career as a solo performing artist, this live recording and DVD shows how exactly how Kylie Minogue still does on this, the Aphrodite Les Folies tour in the wake of the release of her recent album Aphrodite.
The recording kicks off with an ambitious, suspense building opening entitled 'The Birth Of Aphrodite (Intro)' greeted by the cheering twenty-thousand strong adoring London masses, before pounding into the lead and title track 'Aphrodite' during which Minogue essentially personifies herself as Aphrodite; the [Greek] goddess of love, beauty, pleasure and procreation. Announcing lyrically 'I was gone and now I'm back, can you feel me on your stereo?' with great confidence and determination, the opening track of Kylie's show proves that the 43 year old is well and truly back for more with distinctive yet secure vocals. There's a smooth segue into 'The One' which continues the disco pound and energy beneath Kylie's vocals and then there's an almost eighties rock swagger to 'Wow' which follows maintaining the confident glory that one would expect from someone so many years into her career, so too having a cast of many performers alongside her on stage. 'Illusion' grows out of an atmospheric, suspense-creating instrumental passage which gradually gears up to kick into the track. The driving bass line of Kylie's 2004 single 'I Believe In You' then continues to hold the pace and energy meanwhile her vocals remain strong, secure and similarly suffer no falter in energy or flexibility. Ridden with electro synth riffery and even more of a swaggering dance pound, 'Cupid Boy' leads forward into 'Spinning Around', the number one single from 2000, with its' bass groove remaining dominant in the mix throughout to really drive the live performance and also continue a real funky disco flavour throughout.

Kylie's had a stellar year. A worldwide number-one album and a comeback that would make the likes of Christina Aguilera shudder, it is obvious that this Aussie pop princess is going nowhere. Following perfectly in tradition, Better than today, the third single off her LP Aphrodite, is a fun electro number, that whilst sounds great as an album track, sadly doesn't seem to pack a punch enough to stand firm as a lead-out track.

Turns out Doogal (Daniel Tay) is actually a dog. His best friend is Florence (Kylie Minogue), as well as a cow (Whoopi Goldberg), a train (Chevy Chase), and a flatulent moose (Kevin Smith). Their adventure, and you'll need to hang in there for this, involves magic diamonds that can freeze the sun. There's of course a bad guy with a plan to do just that: He's a kind of alien with a spring for the lower half of his body (voiced by an audibly bored Jon Stewart). Their adventure to stop her takes them across the countryside and, er, into, like, a magic land, or, something, I think.

Rock legend Lenny Kravitz has taken some time to discuss and explain his multiple pubic piercings and how they are apparently very pleasing to his lovers.
Lenny Kravitz has expressed delight towards the piercings he has for his penis as they allegedly increase his sexual performance. The rock legend behind 'Are You Gonna Go My Way?' turns 40 on 26th May, 2004, and has stated that his "public piercing" has caused no end of pleasure for his lovers.
Kravitz explained the piercing and boasted that: "I've never taken it out. It's a hoop about the size of a quarter. It hits the lady where she likes it and, because it swings, it can be effective in any position." Kravitz has been part of multiple celebrity relationships, dating stars like Kylie Minogue, Nicole Kidman, Natalie Imbruglia, Vanessa Paradis and Devon Aoki.
