Newly-single Kelly Clarkson has been on an “emotional rollercoaster” over the past few months.
The 38-year-old singer filed for divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock earlier this month (June 2020) – with the news coming as a shock to fans around the world. But in a new interview with Britain’s Glamour magazine, which appears to have been conducted before the split news was made public, Kelly admitted her emotions have been all over the place during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Honestly, I have been on an emotional rollercoaster,” Kelly replied when asked how she was doing.
“This has been really hard as a working parent, because I’m still doing all the same jobs. It’s been exhausting honestly, cooking every meal and cleaning nonstop after toddlers and teenagers!
Everybody’s learning from home now and the teaching! So, everything has been crazy.”
Kelly has hit headlines in the past for her fluctuating weight, and has gone up and down with each of her pregnancies. But now she’s feeling more happy with where she is in terms of her appearance, the former American Idol singer has a unique outlook on the pressures of staying slim in the music industry.
Reflecting on Adele’s recent reported seven stone weight loss, Kelly mused: “Even… with Adele, I saw pictures of her too. I met Adele a long time ago and that girl is like a goddess. I don’t care what kind of weight she’s holding down; you walk in the room and she’s like a force, just physically captivating. If someone wanted to do it for themselves and for their health but that doesn’t change how many times I listened to her record.”
