“Duets” judge and pop artist Kelly Clarkson is a smiling sweetheart in Lucky magazine’s August issue. The singer and songwriter opened up to the glossy about her country roots and the new man in her life.
“Even though I’m a pop singer, I really have more the life of a country singer. I put on the Hank Williams and the Patsy Cline and the Rosemary Clooney on vinyl — I’m not trying to be some cool indie-rock person, I just love the way it sounds — and throw on a T-shirt and jeans. In Texas, we practically come out of the womb in jeans,” she explained. She went on to talk about boyfriend Brandon Blackstock. “Oh, there’s all these rumors that I’m a lesbian. 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.”
Regardless of whether she’s more country than pop, Clarkson rocks in this Lucky editorial. Check it out in the gallery below.
