Who Takes This Woman to Be Wed?

Apparently Nobody. News of Kylie Minoque's Wedding in Bali Denied.


Bali News: Who Takes This Woman to Be Wed?
Click Image to Enlarge

(9/2/2002)

A late August report in News of the World that pop Diva Kylie Minoque married her long-time companion James Gooding during a brief Bali stopover have been denied.

That the jet-setting millionaire pop icon actually did not decide to tie the knot on Bali is a cause for some relief in local circles. Particularly so, if Kylie's real wedding plans are anything like those described in the News of the World coverage.

With a headline shouting Kylie - The Bali Bride? Star and Lover Do a Jagger, the article compared her marriage ceremony to one performed on Bali many years ago for Mick Jagger and model Jerry Hall. Moreover, the article went on to unbelievably suggest that some strange incantation involving a dead chicken's blood are somehow central to the celebration of a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony.

Such distasteful and sensational reporting explains why the Balinese no longer allow non-Hindu's to celebrate their wedding with a classical Hindu religious ceremony. A huge holiday wedding industry does exists on the island with people welcome to exchange their wedding vows in accordance with their own beliefs. A Bali-Hindu wedding ceremony is, however, strictly reserved for only those who have fully embraced the tenets of Bali's majority religion.

Those wondering why the typically easy-going Balinese draw such a hard line when it comes to wedding ceremonies, need look no further than the Kylie Minoque report that, were it true, serves to trivialize one of Bali's most sacred relgious ceremonies. Similarly, rock and roll legend Mick Jagger, after being wed in a specially arranged Hindu ceremony with model Jerry Hall, managed to deeply offend his Balinese friends and fans when, some years and several children later, he repudiated the marriage, claiming that the Bali ceremony "wasn't real anyway."

Little wonder that soon thereafter Bali put the scotch on any more Hindu wedding ceremonies for non-believers.

Fortunately, several days after the erroneous announcement of Kylie's Bali wedding, her official spokesperson stepped up to deny the reports. "They haven't got married and they haven't exchanged any vows in a Balinese ceremony," he told the BBC News.

Now, that is a relief.
