Kelly Clarkson tells Kara DioGuardi she has never felt pressure to be thin. “I feel very fortunate coming from American Idol,” the 26-year-old said in an interview with the ‘American Idol’ judge for ‘Entertainment Tonight’. “I was the biggest girl in the group. I’ve always been thicker and millions of people voted for me. People are born all different shapes and sizes. People have liked me this way.” Clarkson also laughed off the gossip that she’s a lesbian, though Kara’s earnest defense of Kelly’s gender preference, telling the singer “you definitely believe in love” and “I couldn’t believe this thing about you being a lesbian” may leave some lesbian viewers irked with the ‘Idol’ judge.
