Kelly Clarkson Tells Son, ‘Either Be Gay So I Can Be The Only Woman (In Your Life) Or…’
Kelly Clarkson’s son Remington is only four years old, but she’s already thinking about his romantic future. She got candid about her feelings during a recent interview on her talk show with Mary Steenburgen.
As it turns out, Kelly wants to be the only important woman in her son’s life. Read on to find out what the Voice coach had to say about the prospect of her son getting married to someone she doesn’t approve of.
Kelly Clarkson Talks About Son’s Future
Actress Mary Steenburgen talked to Kelly about her son Charlie McDowell’s recent engagement to Lily Collins. She called Lily “a spectacular human being.” That prompted Kelly to talk about her own experience as a mom.
“That’s amazing, ’cause I’m a mama, so I’m just saying,” Kelly said, adding that she wants her son to find “a good woman.” She joked, “I’m like, ‘Look, either be gay so I can be the only woman, or choose someone spectacular.'”
“Because it’s your baby boy,” she continued. “So that’s awesome that you found someone you love for him.”
Kelly has two children with her estranged husband Brandon Blackstock — six-year-old River Rose, and four-year-old Remington Alexander. After filing for divorce last year, Kelly won primary physical custody of both of them.
Kelly Doesn’t Want Her Kids To Be On Talent Shows
Kelly doesn’t just worry about her son’s future spouse. She has also shared that she wouldn’t want her kids to compete on talent shows like she did when she won the first season of American Idol.
“I seriously hope they’re tone deaf,” she said, and added that she wouldn’t want to be hard on them like her own mom was. “I’d be like, ‘Yeah, I’ve heard better but it was solid.’ And I don’t want to be like that.”
A few months ago, Kelly revealed that her family has received the help of therapists and child psychologists in the midst of her divorce from Brandon Blackstock. “Everyone’s sad and it’s okay to be sad,” she said.
