Kelly Clarkson laughs off lesbian rumours

Wellington: Kelly Clarkson has revealed that she finds it funny that people think she is a lesbian.

The Grammy Award-winning singer is currently single.

The lack of male presence in the 29-year-old’s life has fuelled speculation that she is gay, but Clarkson isn’t put off by such rumours.

“I don’t think it’s harmful at all,” quoted her as telling the Mirror.

“But I just don’t know why people think I am. I never kiss women. I find it funny. Also I’m such a vocal person, I’ve never hidden much. So I don’t understand why they don’t take me on my word. I find that a little bit annoying. But if people think I’m gay, I don’t really care.

“I’m a kinda selfish person who right now enjoys being single, enjoys the fact that I can work as much as I do, and not really have to answer to anyone,” she added.
