While Kelly Clarkson is known for her fiery revenge songs, crafting and releasing new music post-divorce has been a tricky thing for the singer to navigate.
During an appearance on “The Chart Show with Brooke Reese,” the 40-year-old daytime television host revealed how her personal life has been impacting her music career, after host Brooke Reese asked if fans could expect a new album anytime soon.
“Everybody knows the huge divorce I went through and it’s been, like two years and not easy with kids,” Clarkson responded. “I’m just navigating what I’m comfortable with releasing. So, it’s just a hard thing to navigate. It’s coming.”
