Pop star Kylie Minogue is considering quitting her adopted country Britain - because she's become fed up with being too famous.

The Australian born star is currently trying to improve the balance of her private and professional life after admitting she suffered a mental breakdown in the past due to her hectic workload, and that her busy schedule caused her split with model James Gooding earlier this year (03).

Now Minogue, 35, who is currently dating French actor Olivier Martinez, is reluctantly considering leaving Britain - where she has enjoyed massive success - in order to escape the intrusive spotlight of fame.

She explains, "I don't want to go. I love England. I'm an adopted daughter. But it's all gone up to another level.

"I feel like I've got two lives to live. There's this me who says, 'Let me wear the spangly clothes and put me up on the stage,' and then there's this other me, saying, 'Please take it all away.' I'm followed every day and I could rip my hair out."
