Kelly Clarkson, despite her recent engagement to Brandon Blackstock, continues to battle rumors that the singer is secretly gay.
Clarkson announced her engagement to Blackstock, the son of her manager, via Twitter on Dec. 15. Before the couple started dating about a year ago, Clarkson had been single for about six years, which is what sparked the gay rumors.
Clarkson admitted to Cosmopolitan Magazine recently that she isn’t offended when people think she’s a lesbian and that she gets hit on my both men and women
Clarkson explained in her Cosmopolitan interview, “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, 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. I’ve always battled for the boys’ team.”
The singer insists, however, that she is very happy with her new fiancé and that, “I've never been truly loved like I am right now.”
