Kelly Clarkson slams gay rumors on The View

Kelly Clarkson’s sexual orientation has been the subject of many rumors lately but the 29-year-old has denied being a lesbian during an interview on The View on Thursday.

Clarkson said: “I’m from a small town so, like, everyone’s married with children or about to have children. So it’s a little hard when you go home and people are like – and that’s why people think I’m gay – because they’re like ‘Why aren’t you married?’ And I’m like, ‘it doesn’t happen for everyone right off the bat.'”

A native from Burleson , Texas , Kelly said she sometimes feels like an “old maid” compared to her friends.

Her latest album Stronger was released October 24.
