Kelly Clarkson has insisted for a long time now that she isn't a lesbian, she's just never been in love with a man.

And now, after gushing to a Toronto radio station on March 6 that she has a "new boyfriend," Clarkson truly has the chance to put the gay chatter to rest.

Sources confirm to Us Weekly that the original American Idol is dating Brandon Blackstock, the 35-year old stepson of Reba McEntire and a Nashville-based talent manager. He's also the son of Clarkson's own manager.

"Before Brandon, Kelly had a really tough time with love," an insider claims. "[Brandon] is just what she needed."

Good. The talented singer deserves all the happiness she can get. Treat her well, Mr. Blackstock!

ABC is getting into the singing competition game.

The network announced last night that Kelly Clarkson, Robin Thicke, Lionel Richie and Jennifer Nettles will headline Duets this summer, a reality show that will take the four stars on the road in search of singing partners.

Each week, the celebrity and one of his/her proteges will take the stage and perform in front of a live studio audience.

Said Clarkson, who won season one of American Idol and served as a mentor this year on The Voice, in a press release:

"The simple fact that I get to go out and find two people I believe in, sing with them every week and help them accomplish their dream is an amazing thing I can't wait to be a part of."

The winner of the competition will earn a recording contract with Hollywood Records.

We are crazy for Kelly Clarkson.

On Saturday night - the evening before this American Idol champion belted out the national anthem and Madonna performed at halftime of Super Bowl XVLI - Clarkson took to the stage in Louisiana and also took a few fan requests.

Among them? "Crazy for You" by the Material Girl herself, a track that Kelly adorably told the crowd reminded her of a date at the skating track with some dude named Michael Webb. Note to Michael Webb: we hope you regret letting this one go.

Watch and listen below as Kelly does Madonna very proud:

She didn't forget any lyrics, don any especially tight clothing or hold the final note for 45 seconds.

Instead, Kelly Clarkson simply did what she did best prior to Super Bowl XLVI tonight: she showed off an incredible voice, clocking in the national anthem at just under one minute and 34 seconds (for those of us who may or may not have wagered on its length).

Were you impressed by the performance? Did Kelly nail or or fail it? Watch Clarkson honor America now:

While Christina Aguilera had the floor during Etta James' funeral on Saturday, and used it to belt out a version of "At Last," former American Idol champion Kelly Clarkson paid tribute to the late, great artist in her own way last week, as well.

"This isn’t ‘At Last’ because everyone really covers that and so I wanted to do my favorite, actually," Kelly told a crown in New York City. "My favorite song is ‘I’d Rather Go Blind.’ So, this is for Etta!”

On Saturday night, meanwhile, during a performance in Pennsylvania, Clarkson also announced her next single, "I Forgive You." It will hit the radio any day now.

We can't wait!

She's already conquered the stages of American Idol, the NBA Finals and the World Series (below).

Now, although an official announcement is yet to be made, Kelly Clarkson is set to sing the national anthem prior to Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis on February 5.

Clarkson will become the third Idol champion to take on this responsibility, following in the beautiful and talented footsteps of Carrie Underwood and Jordin Sparks. She should thank Christina Aguilera for setting the bar so low a year ago.

Madonna will perform at halfime of the Super Bowl, which we predict will be between the Packers and the Patriots.

Kelly Clarkson stepped into some serious controversy last week when she endorsed Ron Paul for President of the United States.

But the singer made up for that snafu in New Orleans last night, playing a long, free set as part of the the 2012 Allstate Fan Fest, an event that preceded this evening's Allstate Sugar Bowl between two undeserving BCS teams, Michigan and Virginia Tech.

Among other hits, the first-ever American Idol belted out such singles as “Since U Been Gone,” “Stronger,” “Mr. Know It All” and “Breakaway." Listen to a version of "You Love Me" below:

“Thanks New Orleans! That was fun :)” Clarkson Tweeted after the concert.

Original American Idol Kelly Clarkson made a surprise endorsement in the 2012 Republican presidential race last night, throwing her support behind Ron Paul.

This did not go over well with some fans.

“I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance,” she wrote of the candidate. “If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t.”

  • Kelly Clarkson Live

Many of Clarkson’s 925,000 followers took issue with her support for the Texan, citing the alleged racism and homophobia of Paul's old newsletters.

“That’s because you willfully ignoring his voting record, his statements, interviews, newsletters, and policy positions,” one follower Tweeted at her.

“You are obviously living under a rock. I don’t even live in the United States and hear about his stupidity,” Tweeted another fan from abroad.

Clarkson tried to maintain calm, responding:  “I am about progress. Ron Paul is about letting people decide, not the government. I am for this.”
