Kelly Clarkson: “I’m A Mama Bear”

Grammy Award-winning singer Kelly Clarkson covers the December/January issue of Redbook and opens up about family life with husband Brandon Blackstock and daughter River Rose, 3, and son Remington, 1, and her two stepchildren Savannah, 16, and Seth, 11. The American Idol alum admits, “having children has brought fear to my life,” and shares how’s she’s become and “mama bear.”

On the inspiration for her new R&B album, Meaning of Life: “When my mom heard it, she was like, ‘Now this is the music I thought you were going to make when you were a kid.’ These are the kind of soulful, bluesy songs I love. You have to have gone through some stuff in life in order to translate that emotion into them… Not to poo-poo on all my other records, because they’re all me too, but this is the sound of powerful women like Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, and Whitney Houston. They inspired me as a little girl who had nothing but thought maybe I could be something one day.”

On positive body image: “That’s already happened to me. They shame you for it. Same thing happened with Miranda Lambert—I had dinner with her and we were talking about that. She was like, “Should I gain? Should I lose?” But no one actually cares about your health. They just care about aesthetics. It’s when I’m fat that I’m happy. People think, Oh, there’s something wrong with her. She’s putting on weight. I’m like, “Oh, no! I’m sorry, but that represents happiness in my emotional world.” For me, when I’m skinny is usually when I’m not doing well. If you gauge your life on what other people think, you’re going to be in a constant state of panic trying to please everyone. People should just concentrate on their own lives and their own health and their own happiness, and whatever that looks like for you, be happy with it.”

On how being a mom changed her: “Literally, having children has brought fear to my life. That sounds horrible, I know, but before kids I was fearless. Now I go to bed and I have nightmares of someone just grabbing my little girl and running. It’s always about me not being able to protect my kids somehow. I’m a mama bear. Just recently our nanny told me that an older kid was mean to my daughter at the park and that she just crumbled. I’m glad I wasn’t there, because I wouldn’t have handled that well. I totally went off on that 6-year-old in my head!”

On keeping things spontaneous with her husband: “Any time we’re in a discussion about sex with a bunch of couples, Brandon and I stay pretty quiet. To keep it family appropriate, let’s say we’re just a lot more active than other couples. I’m a person who loves change. He loves spontaneity. Having a set time or place [to have sex] would be boring to us. When I met Brandon, I wasn’t looking for a friend. I have a lot of great friends! I was looking for a lover. I had never found someone I was truly passionate about, who I wanted to stay in bed with all day. The fact that I did, well…I was going to latch on and take advantage of that.”

On her upcoming gig as a judge on The Voice with Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, and Alicia Keys: “I’ve already warned both Adam and Blake that winning is not my biggest concern. I want to find someone who has incredible talent and really work with that person. It would be amazing to look back in a decade and see this artist have a huge, successful career that I was a part of.”

Channing Tatum, Pink & Jimmy Kimmel Tell Daughters They Ate All The Candy

Daddy ate all the candy! During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, some of our favorite celebrities joined parents across America in telling their children they ate all the Halloween candy. It’s been seven years since Kimmel started this festive prank, and now Channing Tatum, Pink and Jimmy Kimmel himself have joined in on the fun.

To begin, the Magic Mike star, 37, shared a video telling his 4-year-old daughter Everly that the trick-or-treating loot is gone.

After Tatum told his preschooler that the candy is gone, Everly turned her back on her father and started to cry while grabbing onto mama Jenna Dewan Tatum‘s legs.

Not too long after watching his daughter’s shocked reaction, the Step Up star confessed. That said, Everly did not look too amused with her father’s so-called joke.

“Dad, that’s not funny,” Everly said in the video.

“You’re right—that really was not funny. I’m so sorry baby,” Tatum replied. “I hope you forgive me someday for that.”

Grammy Award-winning singer Pink, who made a guest appearance on the show, tried to pull the same stunt on her daughter Willow. That said, the savvy 6-year-old wasn’t falling for the prank.

The What About Us hitmaker shared a clip of her husband Carey Hart telling their daughter that the candy was all gone. In response, Willow said, “Give me my candy,” and threw her trick-or-treating bag at her father.

“You promise? You don’t do you?” she said. “So, I don’t believe you.”

Then Kimmel tried to pull the prank on his 3-year-old daughter Jane. At first, she didn’t seem too fussed about her father’s candy confession.

“I have to tell you something,” Kimmel, 49, said. “Last night while you were sleeping, mommy and I ate all your Halloween candy.”

“What? I still have one. Don’t worry,” Jane said as she fished a single Smarties. The adorable preschooler seemed more concerned that the family’s waffles were ready to eat. But once, Kimmel started detailing all of the sweets he consumed, she became increasingly concerned.

“Mommy ate them,” Kimmel continued. “Daddy only ate Skittles, M&Ms, Kit Kats, Reese’s peanut butter cups, gum, and eyeballs and Twizzlers and lollipops.”

“I wanted my Skittles!” Jane said. “The eyeball is bubbles!”

Fergie On Co-Parenting With Josh Duhamel: “We’re Making It Work”

During a Tuesday appearance on The Talk, Grammy Award-winning singer Fergie dished on co-parenting her 4-year-old son Axl with estranged husband, Safe Haven star Josh Duhamel.

“I’m good, as good as you can be with a separation. The good thing is we don’t lose each other as parents,” the You Already Know hitmaker, 42, said of their split.

She went on to talk about keeping a sense of normalcy for their preschooler.

“All of our cousins are still cousins. Everything basically is staying the same, except we’re not a romantic couple anymore,” she continued. “I love Josh. We’re making it work. We’re both working full time right now.”

It sounds like the former couple are putting on a united front for their son.

“We are just making it happen,” she shared. “We’ve got Axl and we’re just working parents.”

The Black Eyed Peas frontwoman and the Transformers star, 44, began dating in 2004 before trying the knot in 2009. Last month, the A-listers announced the end of their eight-year marriage.

“With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year,” said the couple in a joint statement. “To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public. We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family.”

In an upcoming interview on The Wendy Williams Show this Thursday, the single mom discusses their upcoming divorce.

Through tears, the Big Girls Don’t Cry hitmaker explained that she “loves Josh” and it’s all about raising their son together.

“We forever have that project together,” she said of co-parenting in peace. “And we’re doing the best we can.”

She went on to admit her disappointment over the split.

“It wasn’t my plan. I wanted to stay married forever,” Fergie admitted.

And last month, she opened up to Entertainment Tonight about their amicable break up.

“We’re great friends, Josh and I, there’s so much love that we have for each other,” she shared. “We really like each other, we have fun with each other. We’re just not a romantic couple anymore.”

Pink Bottle-Feeds Her Baby Boy

Grammy Award-winning singer Pink posted a precious photo with son Jameson, 9 months, via Instagram Wednesday.

“There’s a road that takes me home…..” the What About Us hitmaker, 38, captioned the image bottle-feeding her tot.

The singer’s husband recently Instagrammed an image of their son with some soothers.

“Decisions, decisions, decisions,” the former motocross racer, 42, captioned the sweet snapshot.

Earlier this week, the Family Portrait singer shared a selfie with the couple’s 6-year-old daughter Willow.

The Who Knew singer recently opened up about her sometimes-sexless marriage.

“There are moments where I look at [Hart] and he is the most thoughtful, logical, constant … he’s like a rock,” she shared.

She added: “He’s a good man. He’s a good dad. He’s just the kind of dad I thought he’d be and then some. And then I’ll look at him and go: I’ve never liked you. There’s nothing I like about you. We have nothing in common. I don’t like any of the shit you like. I don’t ever wanna see you again. Then two weeks later I’m like, things are going so good, you guys. Then you’ll go through times when you haven’t had sex in a year. Is this bed death? Is this the end of it? Do I want him? Does he want me?” She takes a breath. “Monogamy is work! But you do the work and it’s good again.”

The soulful singer just announced her tour in support of her forthcoming seventh studio album, Beautiful Trauma.

There's a road that takes me home…..
