Kelly Clarkson, the very first winner of “American Idol”, was single for six years before she began dating her fiance, Brandon Blackstock, and she thinks that’s why many people assumed she was gay.

But it’s just not the case, she says, and while she’s not bothered by the rumors, she thinks it might be insulting to those in the LGBT community.

“People think, ‘Oh, she’s been single for too long,’” she said. “That’s kind of an insult to the gay community. Being single doesn’t mean you’re gay. But I’m never insulted by it, obviously. I mean, I get hit on by the hottest girls ever. Oh, my god, if I were a lesbian, I would be so in luck. But it’s just not my thing.”

Though her single status may have something to do with the rumors, some site her songs and strong support for gay rights as the reason. Clarkson’s song “People Like Us” has been adopted by the LGBT community as an anthem of sorts, and she has always been vocal about her support for gays and lesbians. She sided with President Obama last year and said his views on gay marriage were a big part of the reason.

But Clarkson says that, at times, she felt she would be lucky to be gay.

“I mean, I get hit on by the hottest girls ever. Oh, my god, if I were a lesbian I would be so in luck. But it’s not just my thing. I’ve always batted for the boys’ team. But usually the guys who hit on me are tools. It’s the ones that don’t hit on you that make you like “Why didn’t you ask me out?”’

    “She began dating her fiance, Brandon Blackstock, and she thinks that’s why many people assumed she was gay.” Yeah, they say that having a fiance doesn’t necessarily make you straight in Hollywood these days. (Just sayin’)

    Don’t tarnish her name by saying she sided with Obama. She only supports the gay community because they widely support her and it would be dumb on her part to say she didn’t support them. She’s a Texan… a smart Texan. It would not surprise me if she is actually a Republican (one could hope).

    i am sick of all this gay and gay rumors stuff. it is beginning to sound cheap and trite. keep this to oneself. it is beginning to look like a fad, a chic thing to do or be.
