Kylie Minogue Set To Be Known As Kylie Sasse As Singer Confirms She’ll Take Fiancé Joshua’s Name In Marriage


Kylie Minogue might be one of the most recognisable names on the planet, but that’s all set to change it seems.

The Aussie singer has confirmed that she’ll be taking the surname of her fiancé Joshua Sasse when the couple eventually tie the knot.

The 48-year-old singer, who has been with the British actor, 29, for the last 18 months, made the revelation in an interview with You magazine, but insisted that ‘Minogue’ will still feature.

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

“I’ll definitely be taking Sasse but there will be Minogue in there somewhere. Taking a different name makes a statement.”

Kylie Sasse-Minogue anyone? Hmmmm.

The ‘Wow’ singer, who got engaged to Joshua in February last year, also revealed that her husband-to-be bought her the “perfect” engagement ring..

“For me, it’s perfect,” she says. “I’m not the sort of girl who would wear a solitaire. He got exactly the right ring for me. I love it. I love wearing it and what it represents.”

Last year, Joshua told Australia’s Sunrise show that they are prepared to wait until the law changes.

He said: “There are chances of a Melbourne wedding but me and Kylie have talked about it and we are not comfortable getting married until this law has passed.”

“That is something that we’ve talked about and decided on. Why should we? Why is it fair? Why are we more important than anyone else? It’s not right and something’s got to be done about it.”

“I simply can’t fathom on any level, whether it’s moral, religious or anything, that I have the right to get married and to marry the person I love and that somebody else doesn’t just because of their sexual orientation.”
