It might seem super hard to believe it, but pretty pop princess Kelly Clarkson has admitted that she’s never been in love. The 25 year-old Idol winner spills all in this month’s issue of Elle Magazine in the US, where she is featured on the cover. She said “I know people probably think I’ve been heartbroken, because of the stuff I’ve sung and written. I love my friends and family. But I have never said the words ‘I love you’ to anyone in a romantic relationship. Ever. I am very old-school, conservative in my thinking when it comes to relationships. Love is something you work at. It doesn’t come easily. There are going to be bad days. You are going to have to work at loving someone when they are being an idiot. People think they’re just going to meet the perfect guy. Don’t be ridiculous.”
Poor old Kelly has been going through a rough time recently. There’s been a run in with Clive Davis over her upcoming CD, “My December”, where he allegedly made an offer of $10 million if Kelly ditched five of her songs for more radio-friendly. In the meantime, expect to see Kelly in a city near you as she travels across the US this summer as part of her tour.
Pop starlet Rihanna certainly seems to be one of the most favourite stars in the UK at the moment.

Meanwhile, those legs of hers have also taken top spot – Rihanna has won Venus leg razor’s ‘Celebrity Legs of a Goddess’ award. Check out those award winning pegs in her Umbrella Video next:

Lily Allen says that the stresses of being on tour have made her turn to drink. She said “I’m an alcoholic now. It’s not good and that’s why I want to get back into the studio. I’ve actually pulled myself aside and said it will kill me if I keep it up. I’ve got to stop abusing myself because as far as I’m concerned every loon hates me now.” Even her actor Dad, Keith Allen, is said to be very worried about her.
But there are signs of hope that she’ll be back in England and settling down to “normal” life again very soon. She’s just splashed out GBP 600,000 on a new home in Hackney, East London. She’s set to move in to the new Victorian property with her boyfriend, record label A+R man Seb Chew. And don’t forget that you can also catch Lily at Glastonbury (June 22 to 24).

R&B singer Rihanna has made it to the top of the UK Charts, and has made history doing so. The Barbados-born babe, who was busy performing at Radio One’s Big Weekend in Preston this weekend, scored the success with her single “Umbrella”. What’s special about this achievement is that the single hasn’t even gone on sale in physical format yet – the single is due to be released in stores next week (28th May). However, download sales for this track have been so strong that she was able to knock McFly from the top spot and soar to number 1 on downloads alone. This is the very first time that this has been done since rules changed to make downloads eligible for the chart. What a success story!

In news that will shock many fans, British pop group Liberty X have announced that they will not be recording any further songs together.
