US singing sensation Kelly Clarkson blames rumours about her sexuality putting off potential boyfriends.
Rumours came about, when she said that people from her hometown of Burleson, Texas think she is a lesbian because she isn’t married.
The American Idol winner spoke about her sexuality on popular US TV show The View and said she considered her career more important than relationships.
Clarkson said: “I’m pretty sure I’ve never been with a girl! I don’t take any notice of that now and neither do my friends or family.”
The singer told USA Today that she has never been in love: “I’ve never experienced certain things, and I think that’s because I have this side of me that is shut off, because I haven’t found anybody yet to open to that I feel I like.”
