Don’t expect to see Kelly Clarkson swanning around the red carpet with a celebrity boyfriend on her arm anytime soon — the All I Ever Wanted singer says she’s just too busy to meet anyone.” I’m not dating anyone. I just had this conversation with my girlfriends out on the road, my backup singers. We’re all single, and all the men are married,” she dished on Sirius XM’s The Morning Mashup today.

“We don’t ever meet anyone ‘cause we’re constantly around married men. And you’re always working,” she explains. “So, I don’t even know how I’m ever going to meet anyone, unless they’re a mic tech, or a guitar tech.”

Even if she did meet a celebrity guy, she’s not too keen on the idea of dating within her profession.

“I don’t know if I could go out with a celebrity,” Kelly admits, adding, “I’d rather have someone that’s, I don’t know, an accountant. I don’t know, a normal job. I love my job, but I like having my separate life. But you can’t help who you fall in love with, so I don’t know who I will end up with.”

As for her old pal Paula Abdul, Kelly seemed shocked that she won’t be returning to American Idol.

“Are they trying to do that for drama? I totally think they’re doing that for drama,” Kelly says. “I know those producers—they’re doing that for drama. She’s totally probably going to come back.”
