Kelly Clarkson has revealed that she is "happy" being single.
The 'Mr. Know It All' singer explained that several people have shared their concerns over her love life and her lack of serious relationships in recent years.
"People are really concerned about my relationship status," she told Now.
'When I tell people I'm happy being single, they don't believe me. They say, 'You have to be miserable being alone'."
Clarkson also reiterated her previous statements that she is not a lesbian, saying: "I'm not gay. If I was, I'd say, 'I love women!'
"That's why it drives me nuts. But I feel like even if I did say it, people would be like, 'You're just trying to do that to win the gay audience'."
The singer has previously dismissed claims that she was secretly a lesbian in 2009 and 2010, when she explained that people in her hometown think she is gay because she is not married.
Kelly Clarkson performed 'The Star Spangled Banner' during Sunday's Super Bowl, which she described as "an honour".
