Behind those hazel eyes, Kelly Clarkson’s got a heart of gold. The Season 1 Idol winner tells NME Magazine that she has almost 50 animals on her ranch in Texas. “It’s like a rescue ranch now. We have 30 dogs, 14 horses. We still only have three ponies and four minis, but we have goats now, two pigs we rescued called Miss Daisy and Boss Hog, I gave those to my brother.”

But don’t worry, she’s not raising Miss Daisy and Boss Hog for bacon. Kelly says, “I eat pork, don’t get me wrong but I’m not going to bake my own!” Kelly is a notorious animal lover who once rescued an overweight cat from a shelter and adopted a dog orphaned by Hurricane Katrina.
