Pop icon Kylie Minogue hopes gay marriage in Australia becomes a reality sooner rather than later.

Last week, the 45-year-old Minogue released Kiss Me Once, her twelfth studio album.

Minogue told Michigan gay weekly Pride Source that she would love to do a U.S. tour.

“I would, of course, love to travel to more cities, see more of the U.S – and yeah, bringing my A-show to the States would be fantastic,” she said.

On marriage equality in her native Australia, Minogue reiterated her support.

“As always, I support gay marriage,” she said. “I feel like it will happen eventually, but wouldn't it be great if it happened sooner rather than later? I just came from Australia where they had Mardi Gras and it actually struck me when I was there, because I did Mardi Gras a couple of years ago – and I also did it in the mid-'90s, too – and I thought, 'Wow, it's so fortunate that people can express themselves that way.' It seems ironic and a bit backwards that marriage isn't fully embraced with that.”
