Kelly Clarkson ready for romance
Kelly Clarkson is on the hunt for a boyfriend and admits she is ready to settle down with the right man
Kelly Clarkson is desperate for love.
The 'My Life Would Suck Without You' singer is on the hunt for a boyfriend because she "badly" wants to fall in love for the first time.
She said: "I've never been in love. I want to be so badly - I'm a hopeless romantic, but I haven't been there yet. I'd prefer to wait for the right one than settle for second best."
The 26-year-old beauty - who won the first series of hit TV talent show 'American Idol' - has found it hard to trust men since an ex-boyfriend treated her badly.
She said: "I don't think I'd fall in love easily - I had a boyfriend, who I discovered was only with me because he wanted to be famous. Oh, and he had a girlfriend the entire time we were together. I can spot a cheat a mile off these days. I was hurt but karma's a b***h and I'm sure he'll reap what he sowed."
Although she is looking for a man, Kelly won't settle for anybody and says any prospective boyfriend would need to have some very specific attributes.
She explained to Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine: "A good sense of humour is essential. And I like a man with facial hair! He also need to be independent - it's so easy to lose yourself when you're in a relationship, so I like a man who already has a strong sense of what he wants out of life. I love my career and being independent, so if I'm going to make time for a man, he has to be worth it."
