Kelly Clarkson Voting Obama Because of Romney’s Anti-Gay, Anti-Women Policies: VIDEO

Kelly Clarkson, who faced a firestorm of Twitter backlash last December after declaring her "love" for Ron Paul, won't be voting Republican this year, she told The Daily Star.

K_clarksonKelly, 30, closes her tour at London’s Wembley Arena on Saturday ahead of releasing her Greatest Hits – Chapter 1 album next month. But she can’t wait to get back to the States to move into her new home and catch up on the looming US presidental election.

Kelly added:

“I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again, even though I’m a Republican at heart. I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married. I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the 50s. Obama is a great guy. I’ve met him and I’m a fan of Michelle too. She has been busy promoting better education and healthy diets, which is something we could all use a dose of reality on.”

Clarkson released the lyric video for her new single "Catch My Breath" last week.
