Kelly Clarkson Continues To Be Awesome; Addresses Gay Rumors

With all the negative press about musicians that have a gay following like Azealia Banks and Fantasia with their anti-gay remarks, here’s a story of a musician that has gotten it right. PopRock artist Kelly Clarkson sat down recently to once again address gay rumors that have surronded her career. Newly engaged Clarkson feels this is gossip is not only wrong but also insulting, not to her but to her gay fans:

“People think, ‘Oh, she’s been single for too long. That’s kind of an insult to the gay community. Being single doesn’t mean you’re gay. But I’m never insulted by it, obviously. 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.”

Earlier last year Clarkson said basically the same thing and feels the whole thing is trivial at best:

“I just think it is very ignorant to assume that you know everything about someone. People keep saying that I’m gay and … yeah, I’m not. I’m pretty sure I’ve never made out with a 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 me because I make mean songs about them and they think I’m gay.”

You may remember last year that Clarkson spoke out in support of President Obama because of his support of the LGBT community during the 2012 election season:

“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”

Keep up the great work Kelly
