American Idol season one winner Kelly Clarkson is engaged to Nashville-based talent manager Brandon Blackstock, a man she credits to "ruining my creativity."
Ever since the Texas native began dating Blackstock, who is the hunky son of her manager, Narvel Blackstock, Clarkson claims she's been unable to churn out the same kind of angst-ridden ballads that have scored her multiple chart-topping singles and Grammy nods including "Miss Independent," "Mr. Know It All", and "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)".
Clarkson and Blackstock began dating in February of this year, but the pair have known one another for more than six years. We are totally going to get married," Clarkson told Ellen DeGeneres when she appeared on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show just a month ago. "We love each other. We are totally going to get married one day."
"This is going to sound like I'm making a joke but it is so not. It is serious," she continued. "I am not alone for the first time for Thanksgiving and Christmas—and I am very happy."
As far as wedding plans go, Clarkson is convinced she and Blackstock will skip out on the lavish wedding ceremony. "We will totally, probably elope," she admitted.
