Kelly Clarkson Thought She Was ‘Asexual’ Before Meeting Husband

Okay, we all know that Kelly Clarkson and her husband of four years, Brandon Blackstock, are just too cute for words together. What we just found out, however, is that Clarkson never felt that feeling (you know what we’re talking about) regarding anyone — ever — prior to meeting him.

“This isn’t a downer to anybody I dated before him, but I’m just going to be real: I never felt like, honesty, sexually attracted to anybody before him,” Clarkson told People. “And I’m not downing my exes. You know, everybody’s different. But there was something about him.”

Clarkson first ran into Blackstock in 2006, where she was at a rehearsal for the Academy of Country Music Awards to perform a duet with Rascal Flatts. Blackstock, who was the tour manager for the band at the time, happened to walk by — and boom.

“I honestly thought I was asexual — I’d never been turned on like that in my whole life,” she said. “I was like, ‘Oh that’s that feeling… okay! That’s what they were talking about in Waiting to Exhale.’ I just got it.”

Clarkson enthused that she was “ready to take it all off” at the very sight of Blackstock, but she would have to wait. He was already married, and it would not be until 2012, when he was divorced, that the two would get together.

“When I finally confessed that, ‘I really dig you,’ he was so shocked because he thought I hated him,” Clarkson recalled. “I hadn’t let on that I liked him.”

The pair married in 2013, and now are raising four children (two theirs, and two from his previous marriage). As Clarkson tells her teenage stepdaughter, “Wait until you get those goosebumps.” We’ll take that as sage advice.
