Kelly Clarkson is looking noticeably slimmer at the moment, and it’s all because she wants to look good for her boyfriend.
The American Idol star is currently dating Brandon Blackstock, who is the son of her long-term manager, and she has revealed they’re both into working out – although not at the same time.
“I would love to say that it had something to do with my work, but it doesn't,” Kelly revealed when asked about her weight-loss at a press conference yesterday.
“I have a boyfriend, and if I'm being completely honest, no-one likes to be not toned when you are dating someone. I'm eating better and working out, but I've always fluctuated within 20lbs. My whole life I've been like that.”
Kelly then revealed that she doesn’t like actually working out with Brandon because she doesn’t want him to see her looking red-faced,
“I tone whenever I want, and I chose to now because my boyfriend and I are both really into it. But we don't work out together. We did that once and I didn't like huffing and puffing. I didn't like looking all red and gross, so I don't do that.”
Ruining my creativity
Hitting the gym isn’t the only side effect of Kelly’s new relationship, the Since You’ve Been Gone singer recently joked that being happy with Brandon means she can only write gushing love songs,
“It is killing me. I'm trying to write a tough song and it is coming out like butterflies and rainbows,” Kelly told People.
“It is ruining my creativity. I'm writing all this happy [stuff]. People are going to be, like, ‘What the hell happened to you?’ It has been really difficult. I love it. It's an awesome problem to have.”
