Kelly Clarkson performs on stage at G-A-Y on Feb. 14, 2015 in London, England. 

Humor can sometimes get lost in translation during interviews.

Case in point: Kelly Clarkson is not a music industry pariah that other singers avoid like the plague. In fact, she has a collaboration with Oscar winner John Legend dropping tomorrow (Feb. 25).

The "Heartbeat Song" singer tweeted she was "joking" when she made comments to BBC Radio 1 about other A-list singers turning her down.

For reference, here's what she told BBC: "I honestly would collaborate with a lot of people, but everyone usually says no. I'm not kidding you. I have legitimately asked several people that I'm not going to call out, and that's cool, but I don't know."

In contrast, here's what Clarkson had to say Tuesday on Twitter:

So yes, get ready for Kelly and John's duet! Piece By Piece isn't far away, either -- it drops March 3 on RCA Records.
