Kelly Clarkson recalls birthday shoot
Kelly Clarkson celebrated turning 30 by going turkey shooting.
The singer hit the landmark age in April but didn't want a big fuss. Instead she decided to spend it doing one of her favourite pursuits with her loved ones.
"I just had my 30th birthday and we went turkey shooting. It's what I wanted to do, so we went," she told Lucky magazine's music issue.
Kelly found fame after winning American Idol in 2002. Her life has changed a lot since she hit the limelight but Kelly insists she is different to most singers because she doesn't buy into all aspects of the industry.
"People act like there's this one set of rules to follow to be a pop star, and I think, well, you say I'm a pop star, so maybe that's not true Even though I'm a pop singer, I really have more the life of a country singer," she said.
One thing which hasn't altered since Kelly became well known is her sense of style. She's been dressing the same way ever since she was a little girl.
"I put on the Hank Williams and the Patsy Cline and the Rosemary Clooney on vinyl - I'm not trying to be some cool indie-rock person, I just love the way it sounds - and throw on a T-shirt and jeans. In Texas, we practically come out of the womb in jeans," she laughed.
