Kylie Minogue has issued a statement about her decision to part company with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation company, which had managed the singer’s career for the last two years.

As previously reported, one of those pesky sources told The Sun last week that Minogue was disappointed with the performance of her most recent record ‘Kiss Me Once’ and that various endorsement and sponsorship deals promised when she joined Roc Nation hadn’t actually materialised. If only Kylie had been a little-used streaming service, then she’d have been Jay-Z’s top, top priority, that’s for sure.

Anyway, the singer was slightly more diplomatic while confirming that she was dumping the Roc-ers last week, focusing on how swell everything had been these last two years, rather than why, given all the swellness, she was now looking at other management options.

Said Minogue: “I’ve had an amazing time with Roc Nation and it’s been fantastic to team up with them over the last two years. We got together at a period in my life when I wanted to shake things up. I loved collaborating with Roc on the ‘Kiss Me Once’ album, world tour and DVD and have made great friends in the process. I’m now looking forward to my upcoming summer gigs and embarking on new adventures. And I want to thank everyone at Roc Nation who have been on this incredible ride with me”.
