Kelly Clarkson Covers 'Lucky' Magazine's Music Issue!

Kelly Clarkson Covers 'Lucky' Magazine's Music Issue!

Kelly Clarkson rocks out on the cover of Lucky‘s first ever music issue, on newsstands July 7.

Here is what the 30-year-old Duets judge had to share with the mag:

On her new boyfriend
: “Oh, there’s all these rumors that I’m a lesbian. I have a boyfriend now, Brandon Blackstock, my manager Narvel‘s son, Reba McEntire‘s stepson? I just had my 30th birthday and we went turkey shooting. It’s what I wanted to do, so we went.”

On how she gets ready in the morning: “I put on the Hank Williams and the Patsy Cline and the Rosemary Clooney on vinyl—I’m not trying to be some cool indie – rock person, I just love the way it sounds—and throw on a t-shirt and jeans. In Texas, we practically come out of the womb in jeans. I just blow-dry my hair and put on mascara and lip gloss, and I’m ready to go. I really don’t get long nails. They’re so Edward Scissorhands.”

On giving advice to her Duets contestants: “Last week, one of the Duets contestants was crying. She said, ‘I gave everything up to come here, and I’m scared.’ I thought back to Idol and how I didn’t know much except that I was scared, and that I had nothing left to lose. I told her, ‘That fear? It’s your power in this situation. Use it, because it’s your fire.’”

FYI: Kelly is wearing a Rachel Comey blazer, a Michael Stars top, and Diesel jeans on the cover, and Z Spoke by Zac Posen in the inside photo.

    Holy airbrushing batman! Kelly, you’re in there somewhere I think. Wow for someone who LOVES her body she makes sure her pics are airbrushed into oblivion. Did you see the recent pics of her sans make-up … arffffff!

  • jj

    Way to much airbrushing. She’s not that slim!

  • Jamse


    She is that slim, she’s lost weight. These really weren’t airbrushed much. And if you’re referring to the no makeup pictures from almost a year ago, those were extremely unflattering. There are some much better sans-makeup pics from last month with her boyfriend, on the net.

    @jj: Well she is close to it. She has lost weight.

  • Justin Wants a FrontlaceWig

    she has lost weight and looks great BUT her shape has been trimmed down for the cover. I watch Duets she has hips and thighs

  • James

    Jared add that video to the post!

  • Ashley

    @Justin Wants a FrontlaceWig:
    She looks the same in the video as she does in the photos, that’s her size.

  • Lola Grace

    You gotta admit, she looks great since she started losing weight! She looks happier and healthier too.

  • Delilah

    There is almost NO airbrushing, I bet it’s the first time ever I see a celebrity not being matchstick thin on the cover of the mag…

  • Caian

    Really natural on this pictures!

  • Lauren

    Good grief!! What have they done with her arms! Very, very odd looking. Can’t believe Kelly approved that picture.

  • Al

    I cannot at some of you thinking she was photoshopped that small…. She lost a ton of weight! Go check out the behind the scenes video of the shoot!
    Geez some of you are stupid.

  • LENA

    holy shhh so adorbs!!

  • ^.^

    yeah she lost weight and she looks great, but all magazine covers/photos are airbrushed/photoshopped and i’m 100% sure of that!

  • Sass

    Love me some Kelly Clarkson at any weight and any hair color. She is gorgeous inside and out. Love her voice and music. I would totally stalk her if I had the time. Wahoo! Go Kelly!! I will get this magazine asap!!
