Kelly Clarkson Says She Doesn't Care if Her Kids Are Gay


Jill Greenberg/RCA RecordsKelly Clarkson doesn’t care if her kids are gay or straight -- she just wants them to be happy. The singer, who has an 8-month-old daughter, River Rose, and two stepchildren from her husband’s previous marriage, tells PrideSource she doesn’t see sexual orientation as an issue.“I just hope [River Rose] finds love,” she says. “It took me a while, man. And there was a lot of heartache throughout those years. You know, as long as she’s happy, I don’t care either way, and neither does my husband. And we have two other kids as well, and we don’t care either way for all of them.”She adds that if one of her children did come out to her, she’d react with joy. “I’d be like, ‘Awesome! When do we meet him or her?’” she says. “Honestly, it's so funny, it doesn't even register in my world as different. I don't know why. But yeah, it doesn't. I'm glad it doesn't!”Kelly, who has a large lesbian following, dubbed the Kezbos, also describes the first time she went to a gay bar at age 22. “I went with some of my friends and a couple of my gay friends, and they were like, ‘You’re gonna love this! But you’re gonna need to wear a hat,’” she says. “They played ‘Since U Been Gone,’ and it was so funny because nobody knew I was there. I had a blast!”Even with her gay following, Kelly says, she doesn’t think of herself as a gay icon. In fact, the 32-year-old says it’s hard to think of herself as an icon in general. She does admit she has a bond with the gay community, though.“I have a connection, but I don't look at it differently,” she says. “I don't ever look at a fan as a gay fan or a lesbian fan or a straight fan -- I don't ever look at that," she says. "Fans are fans, and no matter what our lives are like, no matter what path we're on, music is the one thing that connects us.”Kelly's new album, Piece by Piece, arrives Tuesday.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Kelly Clarkson: "I Don't Have a Filter or a Fake Face"


RCA RecordsKelly Clarkson's music is emotional and passionate, and so is she.  She's outspoken about everything, and wants all her songs to be just as honest as she is in real life.  As she tells Entertainment Weekly, "I don't have a filter.  Or a fake face."Speaking about the fact that many of her songs are autobiographical, Kelly tells the publication, "I have to have experienced it...Basically, what I'm feeling comes through my eyes. And my mouth. And also, there's nothing worse than seeing some singer sing a torturous love song and you can obviously tell they've never had their heart broken.  Worst. Thing. Ever.  It's like, the bane of my existence."Now that Kelly's a mom, she says, her music is even more emotional.  "There's a certain level of vulnerability and passion that I never reached until now...she's made me a better artist," she says of daughter River Rose.  "Just having kids...a family...it's almost like work now is a bonus instead of all that my life is. It makes it more passionate."However, Kelly admits that her daughter doesn't seem to find the sound of her voice soothing.  While she says she sings to the baby "all the time," she reveals, "You'd think singing to her would put her to bed. Nope. Even when she was a newborn, I'd try and sing to her, and she doesn't go to sleep. She just stares at me."Of course, it's not like Kelly is serenading River with "Since U Been Gone" or "My Life Would Suck Without You." "I don't sing my music," she tells Entertainment Weekly.  "The only one I sing is 'Heartbeat Song' because she loves it. The chorus hits and she's all smiles.  Other than that, I've sung Lana Del Rey to her, and Frank Sinatra...a lot of random stuff."Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Echosmith's Fans Not Just "Cool Kids" Anymore


Nicole Nodland/Warner Bros. RecordsLast year, the song "Cool Kids," by a band of California siblings known as Echosmith, made a big splash on the pop charts.  But the song has now moved beyond its initial fanbase of teens to capture adult listeners as well.  Echosmith lead singer Sydney Sierota [suh-ROE-tuh], who's 17 years old, says she's surprised that the song -- and she herself -- are being recognized more and more."Actually, I’ve noticed recently that more people are starting to know it, of all ages," Sydney tells ABC News Radio. "An example is that I was working out next to this older mom and her kid didn’t even know who I was and she did. And she was like, 'Oh my gosh! I’m working out next to a celebrity!' And I’m, like, super-sweaty and I’m like, '[Oh], great, this is awesome.'"The song will no doubt become even more well-known thanks to the exposure it got last week on two different TV shows.  A week ago, a contestant chose "Cool Kids" to audition with on The Voice -- which Sydney says she wasn't aware of until a relative clued her in."It’s so funny: my cousin watches all those shows so she’s the one who tells me," she laughs. "She’s the one who sends me a video of everyone doing it. And it’s cool to think that people think that they can win something by playing our song. I mean, that’s a really good compliment."Then, on Friday, "Cool Kids," was featured on Fox's Glee. "I mean, I remember thinking, 'Man, that would be really cool if Glee did our song, but yeah who knows, they probably won’t,'” she tells ABC News Radio. "But here they are, they already did it and it kind of surprised us!"Echosmith -- which includes Sydney and her brothers Graham, Jamie and Noah -- are currently out on their first-ever headlining tour.  On Friday, they appeared on Live! with Kelly & Michael, and on Monday night, you can catch them on Late Night with Seth Meyers.  Sydney says after spending most of 2014 on the road, she and her brothers feel more comfortable about making appearances like that."We’re definitely more confident as time goes on and playing TV shows, for example, aren’t as nerve-wracking as they used to be," Sydney says. "I mean, a year ago we did our first one, and we’re like, 'Man, I hope I do good. I don’t know if I will, and I hope I look okay,' and all these things. And of course, you still think that while you’re doing any TV show, but, y'know, the nerves kind of go away a little more!" Echosmith's tour wraps up April 7 in Jacksonville, Florida.  They're currently nominated for a Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Award for Favorite New Artist, and they're also set to appear at the Rock in Rio Festival in Las Vegas on May 15.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Diane Pathieu/WLSAfter getting engaged, slaying the world with her Academy Awards performance, and landing a role in the next series of American Horror Story, what's Lady Gaga's next move?  Believe it or not, jumping into the icy waters of Chicago's Lake Michigan.ABC 7 Chicago reports that Gaga was one of several thousand people who all jumped into the lake Sunday morning for charity.  The event, called the 15th annual Polar Plunge, raises funds for the Special Olympics.  Actor Vince Vaughn, who grew up in Illinois, also participated.  As for Gaga's connection to the Windy City, she spends a lot of time there because that's where her fiance, Taylor Kinney, films his NBC series Chicago Fire.  In fact, she and Kinney took the plunge together: Kinney was bare-chested, while Gaga wore a Chicago Fire t-shirt.Last year's event, which featured Jimmy Fallon jumping into Lake Michigan in a suit and tie, raised more than a million bucks for the cause.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Tom Cruise Not Prepping Sam Smith for a Movie Career


Image Group LA/ABCTom Cruise and Sam Smith are reportedly not teaming up to help the "Stay with Me" singer launch an acting career.According to the website Gossip Cop, a story published in the Sunday edition of the U.K. tabloid Daily Star that claimed Smith had “caught the eye” of Cruise, who supposedly wanted to "groom him for a big-screen role,” is not true.The tabloid quoted a “top executive” who has supposedly worked with the Mission: Impossible star as saying, “Tom’s offered to take Sam under his wing." The newspaper quoted the exec as saying that Cruise was "intrigued to learn that Sam started off as an actor and he thinks he could be a natural for everything from action movies to musicals.”Gossip Cop states the report is false and some of the website's sources actually "laughed out loud" at the idea.Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Taylor Swift on Katy Perry: "I'm Never Going to Talk About Her"


ABC/Fred LeeIf there really is tension between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, as has been rumored for months, Taylor isn't going to address it with the media.The "Blank Space" singer briefly touched upon her purported feud with Katy in an interview with Britain's The Telegraph. The newspaper reports she was "smiling steelily" when she said, "I’m not giving them anything to write about."She continued, "I’m not walking up the street with boys, I’m not stumbling out of clubs drunk. But I’m never going to talk about her in my interview. It’s not going to happen."  Speculation has it that Taylor's song "Bad Blood" was written about Katy because she believes Katy tried to sabotage her tour by hiring her dancers away.Taylor does admit to The Telegraph she has enemies in her life. She explained, "I have bad days when I don’t want to go to a photo shoot, but I’m not going to show up four hours late, I’m going to be there on time. I’m not nice all the time but I try not to be carelessly rude to people who don’t deserve it."But, she added, "When I’m with my friends, we don’t say glowing things about everybody.""We’re not sitting around going [adopts Stepford Wives-esque voice and posture], 'You know who’s really special and wonderful?' That’s not what we talk about -- we’re normal girlfriends," Taylor said.Taylor isn't expecting to find a man who's special and wonderful anytime soon. When asked what her life will look like in five years, she answered, "I’ll be 30. I’ll probably still be single, let’s be honest. No one’s going to sign up for this and everything that goes with it. Like, 'Hi, nice to meet you, want a date? Do you love camera flashes? I hope you do!'""I don’t know what’s going to happen if I’m ever content in a relationship -- no idea how that’s going to work," she wondered."I don’t even know if that’s possible with the life I have."Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Sara Bareilles & Jack Antonoff Approve of "SNL"s "Brave" Parody Video


Dana Edelson/NBCThis past weekend, Saturday Night Live aired a humorous video set to "Brave," the Sara Bareilles hit she co-wrote with Jack Antonoff of fun.  Both artists then took to Twitter to announce their approval of the skit.Going along with the song's lyrics, which declare "Say what you wanna say/and let the words fall out/Honestly, I wanna see you be brave," the video features a variety of women in different social situations, all saying what they really feel like saying -- no matter how rude or ignorant -- instead of trying to be polite.  All the women are then shown punching the air in triumph and jumping for joy as "Brave" plays.For example, when a woman is asked if she wants to share a cookie, she demands the whole thing.  When a woman is asked at a party about her opinion on ISIS, she declares that she doesn't care about that topic, and never will.  When a group of friends are out to dinner, one of them calls out the lone male member of the party for not kicking in his fair share of the bill.  One woman orders another out of a public restroom because she can't, uh, "go" if there's someone else there. And when a guy says he doesn't want to hear spoilers about Breaking Bad, a woman gleefully tells him the ending of the show.Sara tweeted a link to the video, writing, "Laughing and laughing," and quoted one of the lines from the video.  Jack, meanwhile, wrote, "thank god for the brave SNL sketch. brilliant to the max."Follow @ABCNewsRadio!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Why Taylor Swift Gives Her Fans Surprise Gifts: "It's Fun for Me"


ABC/Lou RoccoYou may wish that every day could be Christmas, but Taylor Swift is trying to make sure that, at least for her fans, every week is like "Swiftmas."For quite some time now, the singer has been surprising her devoted fans by sending them surprise gifts that she's hand-selected based on their interests.  And how does she know their interests?  By trolling their Tumblr accounts, Twitter feeds and more.  As she tells the British paper The Telegraph, "When I pick people to send packages to, I go on their social media sites for the last six months and figure out what they like or what they are going through.""Do they like photography? I’ll get them a 1980s Polaroid camera. Do they like vintage stuff? I’ll go to an antiques place and get them 1920s earrings. Do they work out a lot? I’ll get them workout stuff," she adds.  A handwritten note accompanies each gift, and she personally packs up the gifts with bubble wrap and tape.So why does Taylor go through the trouble, when her fans would love her just as much if she didn't? "I want to make the most of this cultural relevance or success or whatever you want to call it, because it’s not going to last," she explains. "I have to be as good a person [as I can] while my name matters to them." She says sending the presents is "fun for me," adding, "If I go a week without sending something, I start to feel sad."Follow @ABCNewsRadio !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.
