Kelly Clarkson opens up about her much-discussed weight and her marriage to Brandon Blackstock in a new Redbook cover interview. The singer tells the magazine she’s in no rush to slim down and reveals how she keeps things fresh with her husband.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Clarkson frequently finds herself criticized for her weight, especially since giving birth to her daughter, River Rose, last year. Fortunately, the “Heartbeat Song” singer isn’t paying much attention to the haters. “I don’t obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why people have such a problem with it,” explains Clarkson.

She adds, “There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism — that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism.” The first “American Idol” winner points out that she possesses other enviable characteristics.

“Someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can,” observes Clarkson, noting, “You always want what someone else has.” The pop star also talks about her almost two-year marriage to Blackstock, revealing that she always makes time for her husband.

“I always swore ours would not be a relationship where we have to schedule sex,” says Clarkson, adding, “That is never going to happen. We put each other first. I call it the oxygen-mask mentality — take care of yourself first!” Check out Clarkson and her daughter River Rose posing for Redbook below, and tell us what you think.
