Kelly Clarkson Can’t Escape by Gay Rumors
Gay rumors, have once again, started to stir up about Kelly Clarkson. She is not at all new to the questioning of her sexuality. The “American Idol” winner, now 30, was single for six years before beginning to date her, now, Fiance Brandon Blackstock.
“People think, ‘Oh, she’s been single for too long,'” Clarkson told Cosmopolitan. “That’s kind of an insult to the gay community. Being single doesn’t mean you’re gay.” Although, you can say on the other hand, critics can say being engaged does not make you straight.
“But I’m never insulted by it, obviously,” the singer said, and there are even some flattering perks. “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 just not my thing. I’ve always batted for the boys’ team.”
Kelly Clarkson has been loud and open about this rumor, stating over and over again, she is not gay. It appears, however, the rumors will not die until she walks down that aisle.
Singers Sexuality Has Been The Subject Of Rumors For Awhile
While appearing on “The View” last year Clarkson took the opportunity to deny gay rumors.
The “Stronger” singer said people think she’s gay because she hasn’t married yet.
She told the women of “The View”:
“I’m from a small town so, like, everyone’s married with children or about to have children. So it’s a little hard when you go home and people are like — and that’s why people think I’m gay — because they’re like ‘Why aren’t you married?’ And I’m like, ‘it doesn’t happen for everyone right off the bat.'”
This isn’t the first time the American Idol winner has addressed — and denied — gay rumors.
In 2009 Clarkson said, “I’m extremely flattered when I do get hit on by girls and I think it’s hot but I’m not into it. I like boys.”
Even earlier this year, Clarkson told E! News, “People keep saying I’m gay, and I’m not… I’m pretty sure I’ve never made out with a girl. It’s just not helping me because I’m straight. No boy wants to hit on me because I make mean songs about them, and they think I’m gay.”
If that isn’t enough the 30-year-old singer recently talked to Lucky Magazine about her new boyfrind, Brandon Blackstock.
“Oh, there’s all these rumors that I’m a lesbian,” she said. “I have a boyfriend now, Brandon Blackstock, my manager Narvel’s son, Reba McEntire’s stepson? I just had my 30th birthday and we went turkey shooting. It’s what I wanted to do, so we went.”
Clarkson is currently promoting her latest album “stronger” which was released last year.
