Kelly Clarkson is not a lesbian though she’d be lucky if she were.
The singer, who is newly engaged to boyfriend of a year Brandon Blackstock, explained to Cosmopolitan magazine that rumors about her being gay may stem from her single status over the course of six years, before meeting Brandon; ”People think, ‘Oh, she’s been single for too long”,’ she said. ‘That’s kind of an insult to the gay community. Being single doesn’t mean you’re gay.” She went on to say that she’s had some hot offers because of the rumors; “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.”
Kelly has addressed these rumors on several occasions and told E! back in September 2011 that the rumors were cramping her style; “People keep saying that I’m gay and … yeah, I’m not. I’m pretty sure I’ve never made out with girl. Sometimes, I wish I were because at this point, I would probably get hit on by a lot of girls! It’s just not helping me because I am straight. No boy wants to hit on my because I make mean songs about them and they think I’m gay.”
None of this means that Kelly has a problem with being gay- Kelly is a gay rights advocate and was quoted as saying she would vote for President Obama, during the last election, because of his stance on gay rights; “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again…I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married.”
