Kelly Clarkson may be a miss who thinks of herself as independent.

And she may not hook up and she may be singing about a guy who is a "know it all" these days. But the singer wants to make one thing clear: she's straight.

"People keep saying I'm gay, and I'm not," the original American Idol tells E! News. "I'm pretty sure I've never made out with a girl. It's just not helping me because I'm straight. No boy wants to hit on me because I make mean songs about them, and they think I'm gay."

Psssst, Kelly: See that Contact Us link below? Call us!

Kelly Clarkson takes an ambitious step in her new music video: she reads the comments section of various celebrity gossip blog posts.

How does she react from there? What decision does she reach about a guy that's constantly giving her orders? Knowing Clarkson's history of female-empowerment songs, the answer isn't exactly a surprise.

But it's still worth watching, as the official video for "Mr. Know It All" takes a jab at certain kinds of men and media members. Watch now:

You've heard her new single. Now, check out her new album cover.

Kelly Clarkson will release "Stronger" on October 24 and she unveiled the CD art for it on her website this week. What do you think?

“I ended up naming the album Stronger mainly because the entire album is about empowerment and just strength overall,” Clarkson said during a Livestream chat last week. “I love singing songs like that. I love being sassy. I love having attitude. I love raining on boys’ parades!”

That's no surprise, considering many of Kelly's single titles: Miss Independent, I Don't Hook Up, Mr. Know It All.

The CD will mark this artist's fifth studio album. Will you make be downloading it?

Ms. Independent is addressing Mr. Know It All in the following video.

Indeed, with her new album ("Stronger) scheduled for an October 25 release, Kelly Clarkson has released the first single off of it. It's another female empowerment track from the first-ever winner of American Idol, as she takes some ex-boyfriend to task.

This is an artist, remember, who does not hook up and who will gladly walkaway if you don't treat her well. Listen now:

We're just a couple months away from a new Kelly Clarkson album.

But you're mere moments away from listening to the first single off this CD.

The track is titled "Let Me Down" and we're not really sure if it fits into the way Kelly described the sound of the upcoming album. She recently said it was influenced by Prince, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow and Radiohead and "there’s a little bit of a country vibe/influence." Can you hear that below?

Kelly Clarkson returned to the show that made her a star last night.

Now in its 10th season, it seems hard to believe that American Idol crowned Kelly its first winner that long ago. Needless to say, she's been worthy of the honor.

Kelly and Season 4 winner Carrie Underwood are the only Idol artists to surpass 10 million in career album sales (Chris Daughtry is third with six million-plus).

On last night's results show, which also featured a performance by Rihanna, Kelly teamed up with rising country star Jason Aldean for a different kind of duet.

Here's Kelly and Jason collaborating on "Don't You Wanna Stay" ...

Kelly Clarkson will release a new album this year. Really. At some point.

But the first-ever American Idol champion has taken to Facebook and delivered sad news to fans: the CD won't be available until the fall.

“I recently found out that my album won’t be coming out until September," she wrote. "The album has been recorded, but I can’t release it until then. I realize that is a long time, but that’s the best time to release it apparently so I’m sorry for the wait, but I promise you it sounds great!”

Little is known about the upcoming album, but Clarkson has said it will possess a cover of Eric Hutchinson’s “Why Don’t You Try” and is “influenced by Prince, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow, Radiohead and there’s a little bit of a Country vibe/influence on a couple of songs.”

While fellow American Idol stars such as Carrie Underwood and Adam Lambert have produced a number of chart-topping, Grammy-nominated hits over the last year or so, we haven't heard much from Kelly Clarkson.

But it looks like that may soon change.

Even more importantly, it sounds like that will soon change. At the Night For Hope benefit concert in Nashville last week, Clarkson surprised fans with a rendition of "You Still Won’t Know What It’s Like." The single will be included on her new album, set for release in early 2011.

Give it a listen now and chime in: What do you think?

As Crystal Bowersox and company battle it out for the season nine crown, they should stop and give thanks to Kelly Clarkson.

If that singer had not gone on to a successful post-American Idol career, avoiding any major scandals in the process, it's likely that Idol would not be what it is today.

So fans should keep that in mind today, as Clarkson celebrates her 28th birthday. Send in your best wishes to this star and enjoy the photo montage we've published in her honor...
