Kelly Clarkson was honest about life after divorce.

"I think I need a little more work on me in a relationship to make sure I take care of myself at the same time as somebody else," the former American Idol contestant — who finalized her divorce from her ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock, in 2022 — told Doherty, who split from her estranged husband, Kurt Iswarienko, earlier this year.

"You thought you were going to spend forever with this person," Clarkson said, adding she's "still in the stage of really enjoying me."

"But ever since I’ve been separated now divorced, my dogs have been ruling my bed. I think they would hate the next person who came in," Clarkson joked.

And not looking," she clarified. "You know why? I love being single. I have two kids, two dogs, three rabbits, a hamster, multiple jobs — there's a lot going on."

As OK! previously reported, The Voice star has completely renewed her life following her heartbreak. Clarkson moved her show to New York, all while shedding a few pounds in the process.

"Kelly says getting back at Brandon wasn’t her motivation," an insider said of the musician's new look. "But deep down it does give her a smug sense of satisfaction!"

"Everyone’s been telling Kelly how incredible she looks, which is a really nice ego boost," a separate source added. "She’s having a lot of fun with her clothes. She’s gone from covering up and camouflaging her waistline to showing off her figure!"

With the fab new physique, Clarkson's friends thought she'd be out on the prowl. However, the mother-of-two will be back on the dating scene when the time is right. "Kelly's not rushing into anything but there's no way she's going to sit around being single forever," the insider claimed.
