How Miss Independent Found Mr. Right
Kelly Clarkson opens up about her fiance Brandon, plus her fall wedding plans.
It hasn't been an easy journey for singer Kelly Clarkson to find love. She's deflected gay rumors, she's had her heart broken -- but now all the pain has paid off.
The very first American Idol winner announced that she was engaged to Brandon Blackstock, Blake Shelton's music manager and stepson to Reba McEntire, in December -- and now she's opening up about her road to find him and her dream wedding.
Clarkson reveals to People magazine that she had been dating the wrong guys all along. "I was dating skinny jeans, and I needed Wranglers," said the 30-year-old. "I didn't know life could be this happy."
But Clarkson admits she was completely thrown off by Blackstock's proposal -- and had no idea at all it was coming.
"If I did, I would have worn something besides Uggs and a sweatshirt with no bra," she said.
"Blake [Shelton] actually is going to play at our reception, so we're pretty excited," she confirmed to radio station K-Frog.
Sounds like the perfect down-home affair.
