Kelly Clarkson Admits She’s Never Been In Love

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.

Ryan Seacrest spoke with Entertainment Tonight about changes in season four about American Idol.

“I’m most excited about splitting up the guys and girls,” he said. “I think it really adds to the competitive edge of the show. Having guys compete on one night and girls compete on another night, eliminating those, and having the contestants that make it through appear on the show each and every week all the way to the end is probably the change I’m most excited about.”

Kelly Clarkson And Her Terrier, Emma

Kelly Clarkson is struggling to find time to house train her dirty Yorkshire terrier, because she doesn’t want to act like a diva by demanding the pooch accompanies her everywhere.

The singer’s pet, Emma, is nine months old and still has problems controlling her bladder.

The American Idol 1 winner said, “I’m having a bit of a potty training problem. She poops and pees everywhere. How am I supposed to like potty train it when I’m in the studio? You can’t take a dog there that poops and pees everywhere.”

She has, however, got the dog’s diet right, unlike touring pal Clay Aiken, who inspired her to get the animal in the first place.

She explains, “He had Raleigh on tour who now is fat. He feeds it too much.”

Armed with playing cards, bottled water and sleeping bags, participants geared up for hours of waiting.

The first person in line was Levi Morse, 17, of Gladwin, Michigan. He managed his feat by knowing the correct place to stand. Others had lined up at the wrong gate.

“He’s going to be the next American Idol,” she said.

Idol producers will decide who in the crowd will report to a second round of tryouts Thursday. Then executive producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick will pick who auditions for judges Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell on August 14 and 15 at a city hotel.
