Kylie Minogue is out to prove that 50 is the new 20 as she debuts new boyfriend on her birthday
The Spinning Around singer threw a celebrity-filled birthday bash for her half-century life innings on Saturday night at London's Chiltern Firehouse
Kylie Minogue not only wished herself on her own birthday, but she decided to do it in style, the style being butt-naked. The talented musician, who celebrated her 50th birthday on Monday, May 28, posted a naked picture of herself on social media where she also wished herself happy birthday.
In the post, Minogue posed with only a decorated guitar covering her modesty, and captioned it, "And so a new decade begins. How thankful I am for the opportunities life has afforded me. 50….. Let’s go!"
Minogue has been tweeting about the different decades of her life prior to her birthday and has posted a lot of pictures from her life in the last few days, including a photo from 32 years ago where she's seen playing Charlene in 'Neighbours' in 1986 before leaving for her round-the-world tours.
And for what it's worth, the queen of pop is all set to show the world that 50 is, in fact, the new 20, especially after she debuted her new boyfriend on the joyful occasion of her birthday.
The Spinning Around singer threw a celebrity-filled birthday bash for her half-century life innings on Saturday night at London's Chiltern Firehouse. However, there was one guest on top of the list, her rumored boyfriend Paul Solomons, creative director of British GQ.
The couple's relationship has been kept under wraps for a long time now, although speculations of the two dating each other have been doing the rounds for quite some time. But it now looks like we'll be seeing more of the duo since they seem to have made their relationship public via the Instagram post.
The news of Minogue's new boyfriend comes a year after she split from British actor Joshua Sasse. On multiple occasions after her breakup, Minogue had admitted to having a really tough time dealing with the split. She told Vogue in an interview that she was having "a slow, steady nervous breakdown" after the break-up. She also added that she attempted to have children of her own, but "that obviously wasn't the path for me, either".
"I think we all know that things were not going great in my relationship, but, you know, when you're kind of deluded and you're thinking maybe, maybe ... maybe this needs saving. Turns out, it didn't," she was quoted as saying at the time.
Hey #lovers, as my birthday is coming up, I thought it’d be a good time to look back through the decades. So first up, tiny Kylie! This photo was taken at home in Melbourne, Australia in our front room by my Uncle Noel. I didn’t know I would end up spending so much time in front of the camera!! So stay tuned as we lead up to May 28th! #KylieGoldenYears 💛
Kylie and Joshua had gotten engaged in February 2016, but called it quits in the subsequent year, amid cheating allegations against the latter. She allegedly kicked her former lover out of their West London home after he "grew too close to" Spanish actress Marta Milans.
And although she did not have children of her own, the talented star acts as the cool aunt to her sister Dannii Minogue's seven-year-old son Ethan, and hopes to someday be a prospective stepmother to her future beau's children.
"And I mean, if I was to meet anyone — that sounds really gloomy — but if there's one person on the planet Earth who might like me and I might like them, the chances are pretty high that that person would have children anyway. So, I think it's more (likely) in that vein, than having children of my own," she explains her stance.
However, now, one year down the line, Minogue is the proud owner of another successful album, Golden, and has admitted that she is now happier than ever.
"I honestly am. I am very aware and thankful that this is a good time in my life," she said. "I don't know if it is the 50 thing, it probably has a lot to do with it ... [But] people can see it and I know it's happening. I feel good and thankful."
