American Idol stars have been all over the news lately. However, Kelly Clarkson didn’t offend the gays the way Fantasia Barrino did last week. In fact, she did quite the opposite.
Rumors of Kelly Clarkson being a closeted lesbian have been swirling about for years. Clarkson has relentlessly tried to squash the rumors, though no matter how hard she tries, it never seems to work. In a final attempt, Clarkson even got engaged in December (Or yes, because she does, in fact, love him).
Clarkson told Cosmopolitan, “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.”
This is a valid statement. Though, and this is simply to stir the pot, one could argue being engaged doesn’t mean you’re straight. But that’s beside the point right now.
Clarkson ever so eloquently went on to say that she is never insulted by women hitting on her and, in fact, is rather flattered by the attention.
“I mean, I get hit on by the hottest girls ever,” she told the magazine. “Oh, my God, if I were a lesbian, I would be so in luck.”
Back off Kelly! Quit being so selfish and save some girls for those of us who would actually appreciate it!
So, while Clarkson may not play for our team, she does openly support gay rights. And, although she is a Republican, she voted against Mitt Romney because of his stance on the matter.
Perhaps one day Clarkson will manage to crush those lesbian rumors once and for all. Whether the woman is or isn’t a lesbian, she can still sing like a goddess. Plus, defending your sexuality is never a fun game. So let’s lay off Clarkson for a while and focus on the important things in life. Like the new rumors of Lindsay Lohan stealing Elizabeth Taylor’s bracelet…
