The brunette turned blonde cover the mag's first ever music issue looking slim and trim in a Rachel Comey blazer, Michael Stars top, and Diesel jeans. For the shoot Clarkson wears Z Spoke by Zac Posen.
For the interview, Lucky visited Kelly on the set of her new show Duets, and talked all things fashion, beauty and her love life!
On how she gets ready in the morning:
"I put on the Hank Williams and the Patsy Cline and the Rosemary Clooney on vinyl—I’m not trying to be some cool indie – rock person, I just love the way it sounds—and throw on a t-shirt and jeans. In Texas, we practically come out of the womb in jeans."
On her beauty routine:
"I just blow-dry my hair and put on mascara and lip gloss, and I’m ready to go. I really don’t get long nails. They’re so Edward Scissorhands."
On her new man:
"Oh, there’s all these rumors that I’m a lesbian. I have a boyfriend now, Brandon Blackstock, my manager Narvel’s son, Reba McEntire's stepson? I just had my 30th birthday and we went turkey shooting. It’s what I wanted to do, so we went."
On her love of bandage dresses:
"They’re like built-in Spanx."
On not being the stereotypical pop star:
"People act like there’s this one set of rules to follow to be a pop star, and I think, Well, you say I’m a pop star, so maybe that’s not true."
We're really loving how open the starlet is about her relationship and style. She seems so "normal" and down to earth, which is rare in Hollywood.
