While promoting her new album “Stronger,” Kelly Clarkson’s found herself talking a lot about her love life — or rather her lack of one.
Clarkson recently told Parade magazine that dating someone when you’re an international pop superstar isn’t easy.
“Man, I just keep going on horrible dates,” she said. “I’m like, ‘There’s not enough wine in the world for me to enjoy this.’”
Clarkson said one of the worst dates she went on involved a guy who told her, “I can’t believe I’m on a date with Kelly Clarkson!” She added, “And under my breath I was like, ‘Wow, I can’t either.’”
“Some days I think, ‘I’ll meet him,” she said about Mr. Right. “Everybody finds somebody. And other days I’m like, ‘Maybe I won’t. Maybe I just missed the memo.’”
What about online dating? When asked if she ever tried it, Clarkson told The Daily Beast, “Oh, God, no! ‘Oh, hey, I’m Kelly Clarkson, want to go on a date?’ That wouldn’t work for me, unless I lied to them, and I’m not going to lie to someone off the bat.”
But Clarkson hopes it’ll eventually happen for her. When asked if she sees herself continuing to record and tour in 30 or 40 years, she told The Daily Beast, “God, no. No. No. I love music, but hopefully [at that point], I’m, like, married with four kids. I love what I do right now … I’m enjoying that, but I don’t plan on doing this forever.”
