“I honestly would collaborate with a lot of people, but everyone usually says no,” Clarkson told BBC 1 Radio Feb. 17. “I’m not kidding you. I have legitimately asked several people that I’m not going to call out, and that’s cool, but I don’t know.”
Kelly continued: “I ask good people, I don’t want to sing with cr*p people. I ask people who are great vocalists but I’m not going to point out anyone. Sometimes I feel like I have the plague, or leprosy.”
Clarkson, who became famous after winning “American Idol” in 2002, has won four Grammy Awards. Several of her past albums have gone multi-platinum.
However, Kelly said country stars Jason Aldean, her stepmother-in-law Reba McEntire, and Vince Gill have collaborated with her. And she will soon record a single with John Legend.
“I got John Legend to say yes and he’s cool,” said Clarkson. “I can get country artists to sing with me and John Legend! He’s super credible and talented. I feel very good about myself with that one. I feel like I’m a very nice person and you might want to sing with me.”
Kelly will drop her seventh studio album Piece by Piece in March.
