Kelly Clarkson Has 'No Desire to be Super-Skinny'

Kelly Clarkson Has 'No Desire to be Super-Skinny'

Kelly Clarkson rocks a Tribal top and Levi‘s jeans on the cover of Redbook‘s July issue, on newsstands June 12.

Here’s what the 30-year-old singer and Duets star had to share:

On losing weight: “I do cardio. I run. I strength-train using my own body weight. I don’t like free weights, because I build muscle easily. Really, what I try to instill in my fans is to be healthy and happy. I have no desire to be super-skinny.”

On doing Duets after American Idol: “I’m going to be completely honest – I had no one looking out for me. They were looking out for the show, and it was horrible. I was 19-years-old. I was smart enough to know that it wasn’t about me, but that didn’t make it any easier. I’m all cried out about it, but my first four years, I hated my life; I almost quit a dozen times.”

On finding happiness: “I know – where’s the kick in the ass? I told my assistant that today. I said, ‘I’m just waiting for something to blow up.’ She said, ‘No, that’s what happiness is.’ I’m like, maybe I’ve never been happy! Because [my boyfriend] Brandon [Blackstock] does. He makes me happy.”

airbrushing works wonders

@oh not this again:
No, it’s called working out and eating right.

Yes, she’s definitely lost weight, but they’ve also definitely airbrushed her to look a bit slimmer. Kelly is thick country girl. It’s a nice thick, but she’s still thick.

@oh not this again: They do the same with Aniston which Kelly Clarkson looks just like.

Looking good!!!

yeah she’s not this thin, they airbrush everything though! She still does look great on tv and other pics and I respect her for not being super skinny in hollywood, hopefully it sticks!

She’s really lost quite a bit of weight & looks really good. She seems so happy these days. Good for her!!!

Kelly Clarkson has always been beautiful regardless of her weight. All those who say she is fat are just stupid(sorrynotsorry). Kelly is such an amazing role model and I am proud to be her fan!!
