The new album's playlist, like lead single 'Mr. Know It All' and 'Einstein' (which includes the lyrics "dumb plus dumb equals you"), are prime examples of Kelly's signature "kiss-off" anthem style. After admitting she's never been in love, and being plagued with rumors about her sexual orientation, Kelly now reveals that there is one deadbeat ex-boyfriend who inspired many of her breakup songs.
"I have been through one [breakup] that was real crappy," Clarkson admits. "I think that'll last me for a lifetime, so I'm good. That was enough sorrow for one year. So I've been through it enough to where if I have a song, I can sing about it and I know the experience."
Tell us more about said Mr. Wrong, Kelly! "He was just a really loser guy and that kind of whole situation. I was like, 'Oh, I didn't pick very good -- oops!' Just the environment, I think, as a whole wasn't a healthy situation," Clarkson recalls. "I don't know what was wrong with me. I was never in love with him. We're completely different. I don't even know why. I think that is how lonely you get sometimes, when you're like, 'Well, you don't look so bad.' That was bad, but I got a lot of songs out of it!" Well, at least the single lady is honest.
And of her longtime single status, Kelly says: "I'm convinced that I scare all men off." Highly doubtful, KC!
