The 35-year-old pop rock singer told Cosmo: “I get hit on by the hottest girls ever. Oh, my god, if I were a lesbian, I would be so in luck. But it’s just not my thing. I’ve always batted for the boys’ team.”

Clarkson, who is now engaged to talent manager Brandon Blackstock, said she isn’t bothered by speculations about her being a lesbian.

“People think, ‘Oh, she’s been single for too long.’ That’s kind of an insult to the gay community. Being single doesn’t mean you’re gay. But I’m never insulted by it, obviously,” the performer reportedly said.

Asked if she gets hit on by guys, Clarkson answered: Yeah, I get hit on by both. But usually the guys who hit on me are tools...It’s like American Idol auditions: The guys who are the most confident are the horrible ones, and the ones who are good have no confidence at all.”
