Kelly Clarkson Says, “Dating Sucks!”

Returning to a relationship is not something Kelly Clarkson is eager to do. After moving from Los Angeles to New York City for the fifth season of her popular talk show, Clarkson, 41, claims she already has more than enough on her plate as a single mum to River Rose, 9, and Remington Alexander, 7 (children she had with ex-husband Brandon Blackstock, 47).

I love my kids. I have my family and friends, I have my jobs,”  she stated. “It’s all these lovely things that are functioning wonderfully.”

Chemistry, Clarkson’s most recent album, was written while her marriage to Blackstock, her former manager, was falling apart. The album received a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album. Following a protracted battle over child custody and child support, her divorce was finalized.

Clarkson Kelly stated, “I’ve always known that love is hard.” “For me, love has always come with this elephant in the room of sadness. I’ve known that love is not forever. I don’t mean that to sound depressing, but I think we put a lot of pressure on that word. Sometimes love is looking at someone and going, ‘This is not good for you. This is not good for me.’ That’s a hard thing to face. But when you do, I think you grow.”

“Dating sucks. It’s so awkward,” Clarkson said, laughing. “I was single until I was, like, 30, and I forgot how really good at that I am. I told a friend [that a potential partner] would have to be an individual that brings their own life to the table without needing anything from me. It’s far more romantic to say, ‘I want you, but I don’t need anything.’ I’m really good right now; I’m having a good time.”
