Kelly Clarkson Talks About Her Weight & Putting Aside Time for Sex in 'Redbook' May 2015

Kelly Clarkson and her adorable daughter River, 10 months, take the cover of Redbook magazine’s May 2015 issue.

The American Idol alum, 32, talks about healthy body image and married life with husband Brandon Blackstock.

On the body-shaming she’s experienced: “I don’t obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why other people have such a problem with it… There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism—that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism. But someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can. You always want what someone else has.

On putting her marriage first: “I always swore ours would not be a relationship where we have to schedule sex. That is never going to happen. We put each other first. I call it the oxygen-mask mentality—take care of yourself first.”

On her views of a healthy relationship: “Brandon is not my other half. He’s a whole and I’m a whole. I’ve never believed in someone taking care of me, and that’s probably because I grew up poor and without a lot of family stability.”
