Kelly Clarkson A Lesbian? We Wish

Kelly Clarkson A Lesbian? We Wish

The singer of the #1 smash single answers the question on our minds. Kelly Clarkson admits, "I get that all the time. People are like, 'Are you secretly a lesbian? Because I’d really love it.' Lesbians tell it to me all the time."

Kelly Clarkson is on top of the world -- well, at least the charts. Her new single, 'My Life Would Suck Without You,' shot to number one this week, setting an impressive new record for the largest leap to No.1 in the history of the Billboard Hot 100.

The girl rocker did an interview with about her new feat, album, and becoming a tough girl in the music industry. But when talk turned to rumors she's a lesbian, she didn't quite have the answer her girl fans were hoping to hear. 

Kelly on her gay fanbase and rumors about her own sexuality:

"I get that all the time. People are like, 'Are you secretly a lesbian? Because I’d really love it.' Lesbians tell it to me all the time. I’m like, 'I’m glad it works for you and I wish I liked women like that because oftentimes men are very hard for me, but I happen to like boys.' I could never be a lesbian. I would never want to date [someone like] myself, ever. I’m a crazy person. I need some kind of stable, quiet man. I don’t really care if you’re black, white, yellow, gay, straight, crazy, whatever. As long as you’re cool and you like the music, and you’re coming out to have a good time at the shows, I don’t really care. I have everything I just said in my family, so I’m just used to being surrounded by that. I just don’t know any different."

Kelly on Clay Aiken coming out last year :

"I was actually on vacation when I found out. He called and he just said, 'You’ll probably get a lot of calls about this, but I just wanted to give you a heads up.' I honestly don’t care if he is gay or isn’t gay, and I don’t care if he tells people or doesn’t tell people. I’m not friends with him for either of those reasons. If I’m a fan of an artist, I don’t really care if you’re gay or not gay, as long as you’re making cool music."

Kelly on negative press, particularly Perez :

“Honestly, I don’t know what the hell I did to [Perez]. He’s very concerned about my sexuality and my weight, which I’m not. I learned at a very young age from my father: “Honey, you’re never gonna be able to control what people think about you or say about you; you might as well just stop worrying about it.” I learned on ‘Idol’ not to read any of it -- never. You’re either going to become one these people that you know have just totally lost perspective because everybody’s tooted their horn so much, or you’re gonna crawl in some hole and want to kill yourself because people are just so mean. I enjoy our conversation right now, but I won’t read what we do.”
