Kylie Minogue breaks her silence over her most famous former love.
“It was great love and it was true heartbreak.”
And with that, Kylie Minogue has finally opened up about her relationship with the late Michael Hutchence, during a intimate interview on 60 Minutes.
Kylie is back in Australia after joining the judging panel on Channel Nine’s The Voice. She sat down with Karl Stefanovic to discuss Neighbours, Michael, cancer and her enduring career, and let’s just say that after working steadily for 30 years, at 46, Kylie shows no signs of slowing down.
More than 20 million people in Australia and the UK watched when Scott and Charlene married on Neighbours, and Kylie went on to become one of the 80s biggest popstars. Karl asked if there's any Charlene left in her and Kylie answered, "You should see me in the morning. When I release my inner bogan, yeah".
But her life underwent a major change when she was propositioned by Australia's hottest rock star, Michael Hutchence at a nightclub.
"I'd never met anyone like that, I really hadn't," she said. When asked what she learned from him she said, "Many things. Ways of the world. We travelled and, I had so many firsts with him. It was great."
Karl asked her if that famed pickup line is accurate. The rumour is that Hutchence said, "Kylie, I don't know whether to take you to lunch or have sex with you." But she refuses to confirm or deny it.
"I'm not going to say exactly what the line was because I like that it was just between he and I, but it was something like that."
After two years together Kylie was dumped for supermodel Helena Christensen. She says she was heartbroken but after a time she and Michael made their peace and became close friends until his death in 1997.
