Kelly Clarkson: ‘I get hit on by the hottest lesbians’
03 January 2013

Pop star Kelly Clarkson has had rumors surrounding her sexuality for years, but it has never bothered her.

The ‘Catch My Breath’ singer and original American Idol star continues to get the speculation, despite recently becoming engaged to her fiancé Brandon Blackstock.

Speaking to Cosmopolitan magazine, the original American Idol winner attempted to explain where the unfounded rumors could stem from.

‘People think “Oh, she’s been single for too long”,’ she said. ‘That’s kind of an insult to the gay community.

‘Being single doesn’t mean you’re gay. But I’m never insulted by it, obviously.’

Clarkson was single for six years before she met her fiancé, but reveals in that time if she was gay she would be very lucky indeed.

She said: ‘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.

‘But it’s not just my thing. I’ve always batted for the boys’ team.

‘But 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?”’

Recently it was announced Clarkson will return to television screens to be a judge and mentor for the second season of Duets.
