Kelly Clarkson Talks ‘Idol’, Love & Troubled Starlets
‘RTL Boulevard’ profiled Kelly Clarkson on Friday (December 21). Clarkson talked about her experience winning the first season of ‘American Idol’ saying, “‘Idol’ is great. I had such a good time on the show. It was a good breakthrough for me because I like a lot of types of music. It’s the story of anybody trying to make it. You know, there’s that one break you get that ends up being the story that’s talked about through your whole career. So, it’s cool, I’m very thankful for it.”
As for her troubles finding a guy, the 25-year-old said, “I’ve just never been in love. I think people throw the term ‘love’ around too much. I think it’s pretty sacred. So I don’t say that too often.”
Clarkson also commented on other young singers who have experienced difficulties in their personal lives like Amy Winehouse and Lindsay Lohan. “I think God kind of put me through a lot of tests when I was younger just to make sure I’d be able to handle this, because this is a lot. I mean, people make fun of other people my age in the industry that are doing whatever they want to do and it may look like they’re going crazy, but, I mean, how many normal people my age do you see going crazy that aren’t in the spotlight. It happens. It’s called being young.”
