Kelly Clarkson has been getting a lot of heat lately—not for her music, but for her recent weight gain. Kelly has never been a skinny mini, but in the past few months, it seems like she forgot to mix in a few treadmill sessions.
Kelly has been doing the publicity rounds for her new album All I Ever Wanted, and instead of the focus being on her songs, it’s on her looks. And she’s had enough!
Kelly is currently in Australia pushing her album, and was a guest on the Kyle and Jackie O Show this morning. She told them, "For seven years it's been happening. It's like, 'OK cool, the fat joke.’”
But despite the negative press, Kelly insists she’s ok with the way she looks. She says, "I love my body. I'm very much OK with it. I don't think artists are ever the ones who have the problem with their weight, it is other people."
But Kelly does say her one issue with being plus-sized is that it’s been hard trying to find a boyfriend. She says, "The rumors are not helping me on the dating front! I prefer the boys. 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."
But Kelly still stays positive about her love life, saying she’s young and doesn’t want to freak out about it. She says, "I'm only 27, not 40 and still single! I enjoy being single, I love work and I think people are so passive with relationships and I'm not that person."
Poor Kelly! It must be tough to be scrutinized every day in the public eye. But there’s one thing no one can ever take away from her, and that’s her success!
