Kelly Clarkson graces the cover of Lucky magazine’s August 2012 issue, Lucky’s first-ever music issue. Inside, Kelly talks about getting ready in the morning and giving advice to contestants on her show, Duets.
On getting ready in the morning: “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. I just blow-dry my hair and put on mascara and lip gloss, and I’m ready to go. I really don’t get long nails. They’re so Edward Scissorhands.”
On giving advice on Duets: “Last week, one of the Duets contestants was crying. She said, ‘I gave everything up to come here, and I’m scared.’ I thought back to Idol and how I didn’t know much except that I was scared, and that I had nothing left to lose.”
