Kelly Clarkson’s latest single may be called “I Do Not Hook Up,” but judging by her sexy video shoot, she may not be following her own rules.
“I go into fantasy mode,” Kelly told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush on the set of the video. “So the girl that’s a good girl, in her fantasy, she’s always hooking up. I’m throwing guys around.”
And despite the title, the song isn’t just about not hooking up.
“Quality to quantity. That’s what the point of the song is,” she said.
Asked by Billy if the song is a notice to men who try to pick up women at bars, Kelly said no.
“No, I think everyone should do that,” she said. “I’m having fun or whatever, but I just think quality is better than quantity.”
But in her personal life, Kelly said she hasn’t dated anyone in four years – and unlike Katy Perry, who co-wrote the song for Kelly with “American Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi — she’s definitely not kissing any girls.
“I didn’t kiss a girl, I didn’t do anything like that,” she said, responding to recent rumors. “I’m not a lesbian.”
Instead, her latest batch of songs is about all kinds of relationships, from lovers to family to friends.
“I’m an emotional nutcase,” she said. “I think it just naturally comes out of me like that – I’m always worrying about relationships.”
It sounds like she has a good one with Kara, the latest addition to the show that made Kelly a star way back when.
“I love Kara,” Kelly said. “I think she’s the most blunt, honest, just beautiful human being — she’s really cool.”
