Kelly Clarkson is opening up about how she enjoys spends her alone time while being single.
During Friday’s (Feb. 12) episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the 38-year-old pop star described her perfect solo date, which typically involves relaxing by her fireplace a glass of wine while reading a book or watching Netflix.
“We all know that we don’t need someone by our sides to live our best lives,” Clarkson said before opening the discussion to her virtual audience. A female fan then asked the talk show host and singer, “What do you do to date yourself?”
“This is going to be real boring,” the mother of two prefaced her response. “I love literally having a glass of wine. I put the fireplace on in my bedroom … and read a book or I watch some Netflix.”
She added, “Or I literally just hang out with my girls. I love that.”
Clarkson’s comments arrived ahead of her first Valentine’s Day since splitting with husband Brandon Blackstock. In early June, she filed to end her seven-year marriage with Blackstock.
Elsewhere during the segment — which included interviews with actress Sarah Chalke and comedian Kym Whitley — another audience member asked Clarkson, “What’s something that you pretended to be cool with that you weren’t cool with while in a relationship?”
The host replied with a laugh, “I dated this guy, and I think because I’m a singer-songwriter … if you date (people who are music artists), they feel like, ‘I’m gonna write her a song’ — don’t.”
