Kelly Clarkson keeps her feminism up and bodyshaming DOWN…and we love her for it.
Kelly talks to Redbook about her husband, her weight and culture in this very insightful interview! Here are some highlights:
On husband Brandon Blackstock: “Brandon is not my other half. He’s a whole and I’m a whole. I’ve never believed in someone taking care of me, and that’s probably because I grew up poor and without a lot of family stability.”
On marriage being a huge priority: “I always swore ours would not be a relationship where we have to schedule sex. That is never going to happen. We put each other first. I call it the oxygen-mask mentality—take care of yourself first!”
On her weight: “I don’t obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why other people have such a problem with it,” she says of her Internet trolls.”There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism–that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism. But someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can. You always want what someone else has.”
