It has been reported that Australian singer Kylie Minogue is set to take a break from her music career, as she focuses on her acting career. Kylie split from her long time manager Terry Blamey, much to the shock of her family and friends, and has now decided to move away from music and towards acting.
An insider explained, “Kylie’s decision to stop recording for the time being and part company with Terry has come as a massive shock. Ever since she broke into the charts in the 80s Terry has been the man behind the scenes. But now Kylie is saying she wants to pull back from the pressures that come with a music career. She says she’s determined to devote more time both to herself and to her career as an actress.”
One of the reasons for Kylie’s decision could be that she moved from Parlophone, which was sold, to Universal Records, which would not be able to commit as much time to her. The source added, “Kylie used to be a big fish at her former label. She’s now been put into a huge roster of acts at Universal and probably can’t expect the special treatment she was used to. She may be thinking she’s achieved most of what she wants as a pop star.”
Kylie Minogue is no stranger to acting, having starred in the Australian soap Neighbours, as well as the movie Street Fighter, which was a bit of a flop. Most recently, Kylie appeared in the movie Holy Motors, a role which the she admitted to finding difficult.
