Kylie Minogue isn't going to be called Kylie Minogue anymore.

Kylie Minogue has revealed she plans to take her husband’s name when they wed.

The Aussie pop star, who is engaged to British actor Joshua Sasse, has some surprising reasons for choosing to part with her iconic last name.

However, the songstress said she wouldn’t drop Minogue from her name entirely, in an interview with the Daily Mail.

“I’ll definitely be taking Sasse but there will be Minogue in there somewhere,” she told the British newspaper’s insert, You Magazine.

So why the big change?  Well, the 48-year-old said it was because she thought her new name would sound better.

Also, she thought it would “make a statement” – we’re just not exactly sure what statement.

“Sasse is a great name,” she said. “Kylie Sasse is a great name. It’s a great stage name. Kylie Minogue has never exactly tripped off the tongue.”

“Taking a different name makes a statement.”

The interviewer, Louise Gannon, then asked if she was referring to the fact that sometimes less-famous men are referred to as their partner's husbands, rather than by their own name.

Minogue seemed to agree, saying it was "awful" Joshua had to deal with being labelled Mr Minogue.

"Nobody wants to be Mr Minogue. It takes a very strong man to put themselves in that position and I fully appreciate that."

"The world around you sees it differently and a lot of guys can’t deal with that."

Minogue met her husband-to-be in 2015 and the pair announced their engagement in February last year.

Although hinting that she was "about to disappear for the whole of January", Kylie said she had no plans for her wedding day and reiterated the couple's stance on waiting until same-sex marriage was legal in Australia.

"Overseas same-sex weddings are recognised in South Australia now but it makes sense and seems only right to us to only get married when it is okay for everyone to be able to marry who they love," she said.
