Kelly Clarkson: I'm Not Gay

I'm not gonna lie, earlier this week, when Kelly Clarkson said she's never been in love, I realized she's never really dated a guy. And the first thing I thought was, "oh, probably a lesbian."

I know, it was wrong. But it was the first thought that popped in my head, and I probably wasn't not the only one. The American Idol star appeared on The View to talk about her sexuality and getting married and all that.

"I'm from a small town so, like, everyone's married with children or about to have children," Clarkson explained. "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.'"

So then, after Kelly dispelled rumors about being a lesbian, the ladies of The View made her partake in a little basketball game.
Come on ladies. The woman just told you that people already think she's a lesbian.

Before shooting hoops, Clarkson told the ladies, "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."

Really, you think girls hitting on you is hot? Because I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that's a sign that you might be a lesbian…

Clarkson's fifth album, Stronger, was released this week. She took The View's stage to sing Mr. Know It All, and I gotta say, she rocked it. One things for sure, Kelly Clarkson's got a voice.

And who cares about her sexuality, anyway? This chick is making a pretty big comeback. On Thursday, it was announced that Clarkson will be a true VH1 Diva. Along with Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, and Florence and the Machine, Clarkson is in the lineup for the VH1 Divas concert event.

This year, VH1 is paying tribute to the cities where soul music is born—Chicago, Detroit, London, Memphis and Philadelphia. The ladies will pay homage to those cities with their own hits as well as some classics. VH1's Lee Rolontz said in a statement:

"This year's telecast will showcase the vast impact soul music has had on the 21st century's music and pop culture landscape as our talented and diverse lineup will attest."

Like any decent celebrity, Clarkson expressed her excitement via Twitter:
"Super stoked to announce that I am performing at #VH1DIVAS!!"

The VH1 Divas concert event will air December 19 at 9 p.m. But what channel? VH1, of course. Come on.
