Kelly: Pop stars won't duet with me

Kelly Clarkson revealed she has been turned down by eight pop stars for duets

Kelly Clarkson claims no one in pop will duet with her.

The singer has performed duets with country superstars including Reba McEntire, Jason Aldean and Vince Gill but never with one of her Top 40 colleagues in the 10 years since she won the first America Idol.

Kelly revealed: "I have, like, 5,000 duets in country music. I don't have one in pop. That's legitimately because everyone turns me down. I'm not even kidding. I've asked sooo many artists to sing with me. Everyone legitimately turns me down! The only one that hasn't was [former American idol contestant and rock musician] Chris Daughtry."

The Miss Independent singer isn't naming names, but claims she has been turned down eight times by various pop artists and her collaborations with fellow Idol alum Chris were never released.

Kelly has lived in Nashville Tennessee for six years, and while she loves country, she insists she won't become a full blown country artist.

She said: "I'm not ever gonna be one thing. I want great music. I don't care what it is. I'm not gonna record a country song just to be on country radio. I want it to be something I'd legitimately have on my album, if I'm having a pop, R&B, whatever album. I guess it's hard for people to wrap their heads around. I don't want to be pigeonholed."

Scorpio:

Don't deny yourself pleasure. It's important to indulge your sensual side. When you don't, you become irritable. Take this opportunity to splash out on new clothes. Soak in a scented bath. Get a massage. Enjoy a long nap. Do whatever your heart desires. If anyone dares complain you aren't working hard enough, maintain a stony silence. You're incredibly intimidating, especially when you're quiet. Anyone who has become too reliant on you needs to be more self sufficient.More
