Kelly Clarkson is back in the spotlight with her new album, Stronger. To help promote her fifth album, the first-ever American Idol winner sat down with the ladies of The View.
Since so many of her songs cover love, the topic of Clarkson's love life came up. She told the View ladies that, despite rumors, she's not a lesbian:
- "I'm from a small town so, like, everyone's married with children or about to have children. So it's a little hard when you go home and people are like -- and that's why people think I'm gay -- because they're like 'Why aren't you married?' And I'm like, 'it doesn't happen for everyone right off the bat.'"
Watch the interview above.
In 2009 Clarkson said, "I'm extremely flattered when I do get hit on by girls and I think it's hot but I'm not into it. I like boys."
