Kylie Minogue and her fiancé Joshua Sasse have vowed to continue their fight for marriage equality in Australia as it continues to dominate the political debate.
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, Minogue commented on how “backward” Australia is on the same-sex marriage issue, stating that “the earth didn’t cave in” in other countries where it is now legal and that “love is love.”
Mingoue also shared how her fiancé has used his social media platforms to advocate for marriage equality, even comparing Australia’s slow progress on same-sex marriage with Mauritania abolishing slavery.

“He loves Australia,” Minogue said.
“He’s so adamant to fight for gay rights in Australia and it’s coming from the most genuine place. He just can’t fathom that same sex marriage hasn’t been legalised and of course I back him up on that, we are waiting for it to happen.”
Minogue also revealed she has been recording new songs to add to a reissue of her Kylie Christmas album/
“I’m working on various things,” she said. “We’ve got some really really good new additions to the Christmas album for this year. I have started work on new material, the way the year’s panned out I won’t have that much time to work on it but my brain’s working overtime.
“I’m so keen to get what’s in my brain out and turn it into what I hear in my head, make that a reality. So new music is really, consistently on my mind. I’ve opened the door and stepped into the room but I’ve yet to spend as much time there as I look.”
The singer also revealed she has recorded an original duet with Robbie Williams.
