CLARKSON PRAISES LOVATO FOR OPENNESS

"I love how open you are about mental health because I have similar issues, and I suffer from depression," said Kelly Clarkson, 38. She went on to explain how persons in her position are often told to brush it off.

"Especially as a woman, it's like, 'Don't let them see you sweat,' " said Clarkson. She commended Lovato for her unique ability to be vulnerable. It's something both singers' fans appreciate.

Just then, Lovato had a fangirl moment as she told Clarkson that she was her first idol growing up. Without her, the 27-year-old says she would not have been as "outspoken as vulnerable and fearless."

IT'S AN EVERYDAY BATTLE, SAYS CLARKSON

Clarkson thanked her and then delved into how confidence and positivity are not automatically present every day. For both her and Lovato, it takes daily effort.

The women also talked about the current Black Lives Matter movement, which resulted from the death of George Floyd in late May. Clarkson has spoken out but was worried that people would question her intentions.

CLARKSON AND HER HUSBAND TO DIVORCE

While doing her show, the mother-of-two is in the middle of a divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock after a seven-year union. The coronavirus pandemic was the straw that broke the camel's back.

During quarantine, the couple realized they could no longer continue their marriage after months of problems. Clarkson initially quarantined with Blackstock in Montana before moving to Los Angeles upon their split.

A source through ET claimed that the "Since You've Been Gone" singer was the one who began the divorce process from the talent manager. The pair share kids River Rose, six, and Remington Alexander, four.

CLARKSON REVEALS HER EMOTIONAL STATE

Last week, she described herself as being on an "emotional rollercoaster" with everything that's going on: taking care of her kids, house chores, cooking, working, and a divorce.

Regardless, Clarkson insists that she will continue to be a full-time mom. She has no intention of putting her kids in the position her dad, who abandoned her, put her in.
