Kelly Clarkson Gay Rumors: ' I Get Hit on by the Hottest Girls', Talks Engagement to Brandon Blackstock
Kelly Clarkson recently addressed her engagement to fiancé Brandon Blackstock as well as rumors that she is gay.
Clarkson was interviewed for the February issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine and talked about her recent engagement and the lesbian rumors.
"People think, 'Oh, she's been single for too long.' That's kind of an insult to the gay community," Clarkson explained after she reportedly spent around six years without a love interest. "Being single doesn't mean you're gay."
The 30-year-old singer added that she does not take the rumors too seriously, but said that she would be very lucky if she were gay.
"But I'm never insulted by it, obviously. I mean, I get hit on by the hottest girls ever. Oh my god, if I were a lesbian, I would be so in luck," she said. "But it's just not my thing. I've always battled for the boys' team."
As for why she spent such a long time without a steady partner she explained: "Usually the guys who hit on me are tools. It's the ones that don't hit on you that make you like "Why didn't you ask me out?" It's like "American Idol" auditions: The guys who are the most confident are the horrible ones, and the ones who are good have no confidence at all."
Clarkson also talked about her recent weight loss of near 20 pounds which she attributed to eating smaller portions, increased exercise, and the desire to "look good" in the bedroom with her fiancée.
"I think that happens when you fall in love or date someone. If I'm going to be kissing or messing around, I gotta look good. There's not a fad diet," Clarkson said.
She also had the help of a trainer to get her in shape and said her busy schedule helps keep her on track. Though she added that once her tour is done it may be a different saying, "But when I'm on my off-time--girl, those 18 might come back."
