Kylie Minogue: "Dole supported showbiz career"

Australian superstar Kylie Minogue signed on the dole to fund her showbiz dreams.

The pop princess is celebrating 25 years in the music industry after beginning her career as a child actress on Australian television.

Minogue knew she has to prepare herself for a tough journey when she started out in the entertainment world.

She told Elle magazine: “My parents didn’t push us but they supported us. I knew it wouldn’t be easy. When I left school I signed on the dole so I could focus on getting parts, I was prepared for the long haul and then almost straight away I got a part in Neighbours.”

Minogue is currently dating model Andrés Velencoso, and the 44-year-old has discussed her thoughts on becoming a mother one day.

She explained: “I do think about it. I’m still hopeful to have a family. But being an older woman, I’m realistic, you have to think about it, you can’t say you will or you won’t because ultimately it isn’t up to you.”
