Kylie Minogue too busy for Glastonbury

(askmen.com)- Kylie Minogue will not perform at the Glastonbury Festival next year.

The singer was tipped to headline the closing day, but festival organizer Emily Eavis - who runs the musical extravaganza with her father Michael - has revealed Kylie will be too busy touring to attend.

Emily said: "Kylie has a lot of touring up her sleeve and I think if she was going to do Glastonbury, she'd rework her show and I don't think it's going to be possible in that time frame. It's just not going to happen."

"The 'Showgirl' tour takes up so much of her time. And its so exhausting for her, it would be too much to headline Glastonbury as well."

The news has upset Kylie's close friend Scissor Sisters singer Jake Shears, who planned to "marry" his boyfriend Chris at the event.

Jake - who asked Kylie to perform at his wedding - has postponed the nuptials and cancelled the circus performers, dancers and fireworks he had booked for the big day.

Now Jake is planning to hold a lavish reception at Las Vegas' Circus Circus Hotel and Casino after Kylie's tour has finished.

Kylie, 38, had to pull out of last year's Glastonbury Festival after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
