Kylie Minogue described herself as a high-heel stunt woman

Kylie Minogue has credited very high heels and great lighting for her much-lauded bottom - and says she does not mind a man having "a bit of a paunch", grey hair, or even no hair at all.

The Australian pop star, who famously wore tiny gold hotpants in the video for her hit Spinning Around, said she is a "romantic", and added: "I would like to find someone."

Minogue, 46, whose successful career has spanned almost three decades, also said there are moments on tour when her "blood starts to boil" if she, for example, sees one of her dancers miss a few steps.

Speaking to the Mail on Sunday's Event magazine, she said her bottom is "its own entity", adding: "I think of it as something entirely separate to me. Probably the reason for it is the fact I've spent most of my adult life dancing around in very high heels.

"If I'm ever honestly asked to explain my job I'd say I was a high-heel stunt woman."

She said the other secret is great lighting, adding: "I always make sure I am best friends with the lighting man on any shoot I do."

Minogue, who is single, also said she likes being in love, and said: "I don't mind grey hair, I don't mind bald or balding. I don't even mind a bit of a paunch. Maybe too good-looking is where I've been going wrong!"

The star added: "I'm putting it out there. I would like to find someone. I'm a romantic. I'm not conventional. I don't think even as a kid I dreamed of a wedding day or a wedding dress but I do like being in love.

"I don't see myself as unlucky in love as I've had a lot of really great relationships - and I don't have any regrets."

Minogue said if you want to be good at what you do and if you want to get better then you have to "work it".

The former Neighbours star said she applies that rule to everyone on her team.

"I don't scream and shout and I like to think I am firm but fair. But I definitely have moments on tour when I'm on stage and I'll see, for example, one of my dancers start to go a bit stir-crazy and improvise a few steps or miss a few and my blood starts to boil.

"I'll be the one who will face it head-on straight afterwards," she told the magazine.

The star said if she is really mad she has a look which is "like a laser look that will cut you in two".
