Forgive Kelly Clarkson fans if they have been singing “My Life Would Suck Without You” lately.
It’s been almost three years since Clarkson, 32, released her last album of completely original material. (At least we had a Christmas album and a greatest hits disc to tide us over.)
Clarkson’s break is totally understandable: The singer and husband Brandon Blackstock welcomed daughter River Rose on June 12 – and most memorably, showed off their ridiculously adorable baby attending a Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood concert in blinged-out headphones earlier this month.
This week, the singer leaked some much-awaited news. Responding to a fan’s Tweet, she said: “Yes. I’m so proud of my next album! Might have a special guest Doesn’t come until early next year.”
Soon thereafter, she shared: “The high road can be a lonely place but I’d rather talk to my shadow than a mirage.”
But she made it clear that the bleak thought referred to one of the upcoming songs – not her life as a new mom.
Speaking of, Clarkson also disclosed some pretty hilarious parenting tips. (Folks, don’t try this at home.)
“Ran out of songs 2 sing while trying 2 put my little girl 2 sleep @ she finally nods off after ‘Silly Ho’ by TLC #shecantunderstandhtelyrics.”
Wait, Kelly, that gives us an idea: How about covering "Silly Ho" on the new album?
