Kelly Clarkson on new trim physique: "I have no desire to be super-skinny"
American Idol sensation Kelly Clarkson has opened up about her decision to drop 30lbs and explained that the only image she wants to portray to her fans is one that is "healthy and happy".
The 'Mr. Know It All' told RedBook magazine that her new fitness regime had nothing to do with the pressures of fame and insisted that she did it for herself:
"I do cardio. I run. I strength-train using my own body weight. I don’t like free weights, because I build muscle easily. Really, what I try to instill in my fans is to be healthy and happy. I have no desire to be super-skinny."
At the end of last year, Clarkson began dating Brandon Blackstock, the 35-year-old son of her manager, and she spoke about their relationship admitting she finally feels completely happy:
"I know—where’s the kick in the a**? I told my assistant that today. I said, "I’m just waiting for something to blow up." She said, "No, that’s what happiness is." I’m like, maybe I’ve never been happy! Because Brandon does, he makes me happy."
