Kelly Clarkson is featured inside the February issue of Cosmopolitan, which hits newsstands on January 8th and has Julianne Hough on the cover. In her interview with the mag, Clarkson chats about turning 30, earning respect and why love is the best diet.
Check out some highlights below:
On fiancé, Brandon Blackstock: “Brandon’s totally the one. I’ve never been so happy.”
On how her and Brandon get together? “We’ve known each other for years, but we didn’t start talking until the Super Bowl last February. And this is the funniest/worst thing ever: One of my superhero idols is Whitney Houston, and the day she died was our first date. I was like ‘This is a bad omen…’ Six years I was single before this. I’ve never been truly loved like I am right now.”
On the lesbian rumors: “People think, ‘Oh, she’s been single for too long.’ 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. I mean, I get hit on by the hottest girls ever. Oh my god, If I was a lesbian, I would be so in luck. But it’s just not my thing. I’ve always batted for the boys’ team.”
Blake Shelton on what he loves about Kelly: “One thing I love about Kelly is her ability to not give a shit. She’s not running for office. She’s a badass singer, a badass songwriter, and that’s her focus. The whole celebrity thing just doesn’t matter to her.”
