Kylie Taking A Break From Music to Concentrate on Acting Career?



In a move that has shocked many, it seems that Kylie Minogue is taking time out of her music career to concentrate on her acting career.

In 2012, Kylie spent the year celebrating her 25 years in the music industry, but it seems that 2013 will be all about her acting career.

More shocking than Kylie putting her music career on hold, is the news that she has ended her working relationship with her long time manager, and the man who is credited for much of her success, Terry Blamey.

Apparently this decision was made in September but the two continued working together right up until Kylie’s appearance at the Sydney New Year’s Eve celebrations.

In a text to Fairfax media, Terry Blamey confirmed the split,  “As we reach this fork in the road after a wonderful 25 years working together, we do so amicably, wishing each other nothing but the very best for each other’s continued success.”

Although Kylie has had a very successful music career, she did actually start as an actress, and has continued to dip her toes in TV and movies with an appearance in last year’s French film Holy Motors and guest spots in TV shows like Kath and Kim and Dr Who over the past few years.

Kylie is yet to confirm this move but fans need not worry as just because Kylie is going back to acting, this does not mean an end of her music career, it’s just a well deserved break!

Here’s a look back at some of Kylie’s most famous roles.

Kylie’s first role was at the age of 13, alongside her Neighbours co-star, Jason Donovan, in the Australian TV drama Skyways.

According to it looks like Kylie has already picked her next acting role.

A beautiful coastal village, present day Spain. After a whirlwind romance, Maddie is preparing to marry her gorgeous Spanish tutor Raf, and has invited her sister Taylor to the wedding. Unbeknownst to Maddie, however, Raf is Taylor’s ex-holiday flame, and the love of her life…

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving.
