KELLY Clarkson has promised to reveal the ‘ugly’ and ‘sad’ details about her marriage to ex-husband Brandon Blackstock on her upcoming album.
The talk show host opened up about what to expect from her new music during an album announcement video posted to her Instagram on Sunday.
In the announcement video, titled “New music soon,” Kelly, 40, revealed that her new album, which she didn’t plan to release, is “coming soon.”
The Breakaway artist explained, “It’s officially time to tell you that I’ve been working on this project for almost three years now.”
She continued, “I wasn’t sure if I was going to release it, but I am and the album is called Chemistry.”
Kelly explained, “It’s called Chemistry because I was trying to come up with a word, it could also be one of the songs on the alum, but I was trying to come up with a word that really describes the whole thing.”
The singer admitted she didn’t want her fans to think she was coming out with an alum based on being “angry” and “sad.”
Or as she puts it, “just two emotions”.
The 40-year-old TV personality revealed: “This alum is definitely the arc of a whole relationship.
“And a whole relationship shouldn’t be reduced to just one thing.”

Kelly admitted, “There’s, you know, the good, the bad, and the ugly that’s going on in there.”
“Chemistry can be a really amazing, sexy, cool, [and] funny thing but it can also be really bad for you,” she later admitted, before adding, “That’s why I called it chemistry.
“I thought it would be the perfect title to describe the whole album.”
Towards the end of the video, the Since U Been Gone singer teased that the album was “coming out soon,” while also admitting that she is
“nervous” but “excited about getting it out.”
In response to the announcement of the new music, fans rushed to the post’s comments section to express their excitement.
One person wrote: “Suddenly chemistry is my favorite subject!!!!!”
A second fan commented: “I really like the title. And as a divorced woman, I understand exactly what you mean by that. I can’t wait to hear it. Your music has healed me. I love you.”
“Everybody shut up,” joked a third.
A fourth person remarked, “Chemistry has never looked so cool to me! Can not Hardly Wait!”
While a fifth commenter wrote, “CAN’T WAIT FOR CHEMISTRY!”
DIVORCE FROM BRANDON
Kelly left her husband Brandon in 2020 after seven years of marriage.
The singer rose to fame in the early 2000s after winning the first season of American Idol in 2002.
Then, over a decade later, Kelly tied the knot with talent manager Brandon Blackstock.
While the couple seemed inseparable, the Kelly Clarkson Show host shocked fans when she filed for divorce on June 4, 2020.
At the time, she cited “irreconcilable differences” and later admitted on her show that she “didn’t see it coming.”
During the season premiere of her show, Kelly revealed, “2020 was a dumpster fire.
“2020 also changed my personal life a lot. I definitely didn’t see anything coming.
“But what I’m dealing with is difficult because it affects more than just my heart. It affects many little hearts.”
“You know we have four kids and divorce is never easy and we both come from divorced families so we know the best thing here is to protect our kids and their little hearts,” Kelly added.
Their divorce was later settled in March 2022, and the Grammy Award-winning singer was ordered to pay Blackstock just over $1.3 million along with $45,601 a month in child support, according to court documents showing the received from The Blast.
Clarkson met her music manager and ex-husband backstage at a rehearsal for the Academy of Country Music Awards in 2006.
After several years of dating, the couple got engaged in December 2012 and married a year later at a luxury estate in Tennessee.
After tying the knot in 2013, Clarkson and Blackstock welcomed two children, daughter River Rose and son Remington Alexander.
As part of their divorce settlement, the former couple will have joint custody, but the children are expected to be staying with Clarkson in Los Angeles, reports The Blast.
GO ON, GO ON
Kelly revealed how she got over the ugly divorce from her ex-husband Brandon while sitting down with fellow musicians The Chicks on her talk show.
During the interview, Kelly asked the chicks – Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer – about their songwriting craft and “how hard it is [it] to write so openly and honestly while navigating [their] children” and their relatives.
Emily replied, “There’s no getting around it. If you spell wrong, it won’t work. You have to be real.”
She continued, “The more specific you are, the more universal it is to other people.”
Kelly then openly said, “We’ve all been through divorces,” before asking, “How did you two find strength?”
Before they could reply, the voice coach quickly added, “And not just music. I think it’s therapeutic, but like your female friendships. I feel like that really helped me.”
Martie replied: “I remember when [Natalie] came into the studio first and said, ‘Guys, I just want to tell you guys I’m getting a divorce.'”
Natalie jokes, “What time was that?” while the other three laugh.
“The first one,” Martie giggled as she continued, “I remember thinking I’m getting a divorce, now she says she’s getting a divorce, now I can’t say I’m getting a divorce.”
Natalie chimed in, “So I’m like boys, I’m getting a divorce and Martie’s like, ‘I have a terrible marriage.'”
The lead singer then lovingly added, “We were divorce buddies.”
