Pop superstar Kylie Minogue is determined to grow old gracefully - insisting she won't be wearing hotpants now she is 40.
The Australian beauty made a triumphant comeback to the music scene when she donned a pair of skimpy gold hotpants in the video for 2000's Spinning Around, but claims she isn't keen to maintain her sexy image as she gets older.
However the star, who turned 40 in May (08), is adamant she still belongs in the spotlight, and would love to perform more jazz-inspired sets.
She tells Britain's Easy Living magazine, "It's difficult to age with dignity in the pop business, but I'd like to think I've managed it so far. But I won't be wearing hotpants any more!"
She adds, "A while ago I sang I Should Be So Lucky as a romantic torch song on Later... With Jools Holland (U.K. TV show). Jools accompanied me on the piano, and I can imagine working like that."
