Just because she was single for a while, the world pretty much was like, “Is Kelly Clarkson gay?” She’s not. She recently got engaged to Brandon Blackstock.
The awesomest part about all of this is that Kelly Clarkson isn’t bothered one bit when someone asks if she’s gay.
“People think, ‘Oh, she’s been single for too long.’ That’s kind of an insult to the gay community,” Kel said in a new interview. “Being single doesn’t mean you’re gay. But I’m never insulted by it, obviously!”
In fact, Kelly doesn’t even mind when girls hit on her. “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 not just my thing. I’ve always batted for the boys’ team.”
We freakin’ love Kelly’s attitude. Being single isn’t the end of the world–and it won’t last forever. And just because someone who’s not necessarily your preferred gender thinks you’re cute, it’s not a bad thing. It’s a compliment!
Though the Kelly Clarkson gay rumors don’t bug her, a lot of times the guys who hit on her do–because they’re jerks! “Usually the guys who hit on me are tools,” she griped. “It’s the ones that don’t hit on you that make you like, ‘Why didn’t you ask me out?’ It’s like American Idol auditions: The guys who are the most confident are the horrible ones, and the ones who are good have no confidence at all.”
Remember that next time you think a shy guy is cute but doesn’t make a move. He may well just be be too nervous, and you could miss out on someone awesome. And just because a guy has the balls to talk to you doesn’t mean he’s a catch, either. Use your judgment and you’ll wind up with someone rad, just like Kelly Clarkson did.
And if you’re dealing with gay rumors? Shake ’em off, girl. There’s nothing wrong with being gay, but there’s no need for people to be in your business. The less big of a deal you make out of it, the faster they’ll forget and move on! It’s a lot better to be single and mistaken for a lesbian than to force yourself into a crappy relationship with someone you don’t even like just to shut people up. Kelly Clarkson gay rumors didn’t stop her from finding an awesome dude, so don’t sweat it at all.
