American Idol alum Kelly Clarkson is unfazed by longstanding rumors that she is gay. In fact, the 30-year-old singer finds the rumors flattering, noting “I get hit on by the hottest girls ever."
In a new interview with Cosmopolitan, the newly engaged singer discussed the rumors that she was gay.
“People think, 'Oh, she's been single for too long,'" she explained. "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. 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."
Clarkson discussed with the mag recently how she met her now soon-to-be husband saying, “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."
Prior to meeting Blackstock, Clarkson was single for six years. The two are now engaged to be married, announcing the exciting news only one month ago.
