In the June 11th issue of Life & Style Weekly, Kelly Clarkson opens up about how she has lost 40 pounds and who the special guy is that inspired her to shed the weight.
Reportedly, the 30-year-old singer, whose weight has fluctuated dramatically over the past decade, looked noticeably slimmer at the recent premiere of her new show, Duets, but it wasn’t the pressure of being on TV that was responsible for her weight loss, she revealed, it was love and her new boyfriend, Brandon Blackstock.
“I didn’t lose weight for work. I did it for me!” she said. “I’ve always fluctuated, but now I’m in a happy relationship. He gets my life. I’m just more active with him.“
Kelly was supposedly single for six years, prior to starting a relationship with Brandon in late 2011.
“No one wants to be untoned when you’re dating someone,” she added.
However, Kelly explained that while she likes spending time with Brandon, she definitely does not enjoy working out together:
“We did that once, and I don’t like huffin’ and puffin’ in front of my man and looking all red and gross and sweaty,” she said. Related: Kelly Clarkson’s Happiness and Boyfriend Is Destroying Her Creativity
