Kelly Clarkson: 'I Don't Care If My Children Are Gay'

2 March 2015 7:13 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Gay or straight, Kelly Clarkson doesn’t care how her kids end up – she just wants them to have their own happily ever after.

In a new interview with ETonline contributor Chris Azzopardi for PrideSource to promote her latest studio album, Piece by Piece, the pop star revealed the very personal reason sexual orientation isn’t an issue when it comes to her kids, particularly 8-month-old River Rose.

“I just hope [River Rose] finds love,” Clarkson says. “It took me a while, man. And there was a lot of heartache throughout those years. You know, as long as she’s happy, I don’t care either way, and neither does my husband. And we have two other kids as well, and we don’t care either way for all of them.”

Kelly Clarkson Can't Stop Hating on 'From Justin to Kelly'

27 February 2015 12:52 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Anyone holding their breath for a From Justin to Kelly sequel (do those people exist?) should let out a giant exhale right about now.

Amid a press tour for her highly anticipated new album Piece By Piece, Kelly Clarkson just can't stop hating on her big screen debut. Turns out, she was very opposed to filming it in the first place.

Pics: Aww! Stars Share Pics of Their Cute Kids

In a revealing 25 Things You Don't Know About Me piece with Us Weekly, Clarkson opened up about a devastating phone call with American Idol creator Simon Fuller.

"I cried for a solid hour on the phone with the creator of American Idol and pleaded to be let out of the contract that said I had to film From Justin to Kelly," she said.

Clarkson's tears weren't unfounded: the film, penned by Fuller's brother Kim, opened in 2003 to scathing reviews and only $2.7 million at the box office »
