Kylie: I want a charismatic man

Kylie Minogue has revealed she is looking for a man who can sweep her off her feet with charm and laughter.

The Australian singer, who split from model boyfriend Andres Valencoso last October, admitted she would also like to find someone who can cope with her "crazy life".

"I'm looking for someone with charisma, humour and can cope with my kind of crazy life - all of it," she said during a session streamed live on Facebook from the London headquarters.

Kylie, 45, gave a sneak preview of five tracks from her new record, Kiss Me Once, followed by a question and answer session hosted by her fellow Voice judge Ricky Wilson.

The singer, who has more than 2.3 million fans on the social networking site, said the album - her first with Jay Z's record label Roc Nation - symbolised a "new beginning and a new era".

"I had a true epiphany and a huge realisation after I celebrated 25 years in the business in 2012," she revealed.

"My vision was a horizon with nothing on it and a calmness came over me. I realised I need to do something different. This has been an exciting and challenging year."

Kylie, a judge on BBC's The Voice, continued: "I don't want to go round and round and become a parody of myself. I am moving forward and hungering for new challenges. I am going towards the second half of my life and I wanted to feel re-invigorated."

The singer also revealed how spending New Year's Eve alone - "the best she'd ever had" - inspired her to chase new experiences, and how she has had to sacrifice precious time with her family for her career.

"My wish would be to spend more time with family but it's impossible in order to achieve what I want for my career," she admitted.

Kylie's new album, Kiss Me Once, is released on March 17, while her new single Into The Blue is out now.
