We’ve made no secret of the fact that we love what Kelly Clarkson’s been doing with her look lately. From her trimmed down figure to her new golden locks, we’re digging the new Kelly.

For her, though, it’s no biggie.

She told US Magazine that there is no big secret to her recent weight loss except for “trying to eat a little better and work out a little more.” She reportedly decided to get on a healthy kick after watching her own performance on December’s VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul.

As for what made Kelly change up her mane, she didn’t say. But she did emphasize that the statement “Blondes have more fun” doesn’t quite apply to her.  “People keep asking me if I am having more fun, being blonde, but I always have fun!” said the singer. “Whether I'm blonde, redhead, or brunette! I always have fun, d*mmit!"

It doesn’t hurt that she’s deliriously happy with her boyfriend, 35-year-old Nashville talent manager Brandon Blackstock.

“I'm too happy!” Kelly gushed about her now one-year-long relationship with Brandon. That kind of happiness does have its downsides for an artist, though. “He's ruining my creativity! … I'm writing all this happy sh*t! It's killing me."

It’s a good problem to have, Kelly!
