Kelly Clarkson Rocks Lighter Locks in London: Is She Better Off Blonde? (POLL)

Suddenly Slim!
Celebrity body transformations!
Kelly Clarkson debuted a much-blonder hairstyle Wednesday morning in London, where cameras caught the American Idol winner as she left the city’s Radio 1 Live Lounge.

Clarkson, 30, — who just released her new single, “Dark Size,” and is gearing up for her new show Duets – was all smiles as she showed off her new ‘do — not to mention her slimmed-down body, which she covered in a purple blazer and a vintage t-shirt from the Jacksons’ 1984 Victory Tour.

No word yet on what inspired Kelly’s hair change. Could it, perhaps, be a result of her budding new relationship?

As reported extensively on Celebuzz, Kelly is now dating Brandon Blackstock, 35, the stepson of Kelly’s close friend and fellow-singer, Reba McEntire. The couple started dating last year, and made their official debut last week, in Tennessee. (See a photo of their debut here.)

Whatever the case, it’s the latest new look for the “Stronger” singer, who recently spilled to Redbook how she was able to shed 30 pounds in just six months.

“I do cardio,” she said. “I run. I strength-train using my own body weight. I don’t like free weights, because I build muscle easily.”

“Really, what I try to instill in my fans is to be healthy and happy. I have no desire to be super-skinny,” she added.
