Kelly Clarkson is going through it — and we mean, through it — amid her divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock. She’s so thick in the hard part of her split that she can’t even see the light at the end of the tunnel, but that hasn’t stopped her from asking Gwyneth Paltrow for life advice on starting over.
“You’ve been married for two years,” Clarkson told Paltrow on Wednesday’s episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show. “Coming from someone who is literally in the middle of a divorce, I can’t even imagine doing it again.” The talk show host admitted that she would rather ‘get out’ herself instead of looking for love and being vulnerable again. It’s a pretty realistic place to be when the pain still stings in the middle of a breakup.
Clarkson doesn’t really see herself remarrying, but, of course, she doesn’t even see herself making anyone a priority besides herself at this point. Paltrow received some great advice on finding love after she “consciously uncoupled” from first husband Chris Martin and married second husband Brad Falchuk in 2018. The Goop founder revealed that was “probably the thing.” hardest” she’s ever done because she had to put in the work to “learn the lessons” of her divorce. “But you’ll still get it, Kelly,” Paltrow gently told Clarkson. “It just takes time.”
The “Stronger” singer has yet to decide whether to marry someone else, but that’s okay. She’s spending too much time showing off right now, which is exactly where she should be. “I love going out with me! she shared. “So I’m not actually looking for it.” And as the old saying goes, love finds you when you least expect it.
