Minogue launches networking site
Kylie Minogue
Minogue's latest single is available to buy as a digital download
Singer Kylie Minogue has launched her own social networking website for her fans to communicate with each other.

The KylieKonnect website enables fans to create personal profiles and upload images, as well as "keep up to date with all the very latest on Kylie".

The launch coincided with claims that the 39-year-old had shelved plans for a 2008 world tour to promote new album X.

The reports have been denied by record company Parlophone, who said a tour had not been scheduled in the first place.

"There never was a tour," a spokesman told the BBC News website, echoing an earlier comment made by the singer's Australian publicist.

Comeback single

The company said the Daily Mail story claiming that Minogue had cancelled a tour on doctor's orders was "completely false".

"There were and are no dates currently confirmed," it said. "Thus, reports that Kylie has cancelled a tour are not true for the simple reason that no tour had been booked."

Minogue was forced to end her last tour prematurely after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005.

She resumed her Showgirl tour towards the end of last year and has just released her comeback single, Two Hearts.

"Her health remains excellent and she is in the middle of promoting her new single and album," said Parlophone.

In a message posted on KylieKonnect on Friday, Minogue welcomed fans to her new site and said she would be "dropping by from time to time".
