After becoming known for her breakup anthems and girl-power songs, Kelly Clarkson has finally found her happy ending. Just last month, the former "American Idol" winner announced that she, and her massive canary diamond engagement ring, were set to walk down the aisle after getting engaged to Brandon Blackstock.
"Brandon's totally the one. I've never been so happy," Clarkson recently told Cosmopolitan magazine for their February issue. "I've never been truly loved like I am right now."
Before Clarkson became a wife-to-be, she was a longtime single lady, which, in turn, sparked rumors that she was gay. Yet, Clarkson admits, those headlines never fazed her.
"People think, 'Oh, she's been single for too long.' That's kind of an insult to the gay community," Clarkson 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."
Fans of Clarkson, fear not, even though she is now extremely happy with her fiancé and recently celebrated her 30th birthday, it doesn't mean that she will stop writing her hit songs about relationship problems; they might just have a different spin to them.
"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?" Clarkson 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."
