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.”
