Kelly Clarkson: 'Rumours About Me Were An Insult to the Gay Community'

Kelly Clarkson had to face some pretty wide-of-the-mark claims during the time that she was single, namely that she was gay. Not that there’s anything wrong with that of course, but the 30 year-old pop star never was, she was just suffering from something we all go through – being reluctantly single for a while.

Clarkson is now happily in a relationship, one which is going to turn into a marriage after she revealed last month that she’d got engaged to her boyfriend Brandon Blackstock. Talking to Cosmopolitan though she reflected on the rumors surrounding her sexuality. "People think, 'Oh, she's been single for too long.' That's kind of an insult to the gay community," the singer said. "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."

Clarkson also ruminated on what this new change in relationship status would mean for the content of her songs in the future. "It's kind of the next chapter for me, so there's still stuff to write about. The idea of 'Catch My Breath' is 'Man, it's been a decade and a lot of growing up.' And I think women in their 20s are searching, searching, searching... What do I want? What makes me happy? What doesn't make me happy?" she said. "I tell my boyfriend, 'I feel like the rug is gonna be pulled out from under me anytime.' He thinks I'm such a pessimist. But I think being so happy freaks you out. So there's something to write about in that as well."
