Sia's Forthcoming Album Is Finished
Guess what else? The singer's project already has a title!

Kelly Clarkson is no doubt a talented singer and songwriter, but who would’ve guessed that she has trouble landing collaborations? In a recent interview on BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw, the new mom revealed that artists turn her down when she asks them to work with her.

“I honestly would collaborate with a lot of people, but everyone usually says no. I’m not kidding you,” Clarkson stated during the interview.

It seems like the only person she could snag was John Legend, who is the sole guest feature on the singer’s forthcoming album — Piece By Piece. “I got John Legend to say yes, so that’s cool. I ask good people. I don’t want to sing with crap people, so I ask people who are great vocalists, but I’m not going to point out anyone,” Clarkson continues.

“I have asked several people, but sometimes I feel like I have the plague, or leprosy, they’re like, if I get too close…I don’t know.” Yikes, this sounds pretty catty!

Look out for the singer’s sixth studio LP Piece By Piece, which features the lead track “Heartbreak Song,” on March 3. Do you have any guesses on which artists Kelly Clarkson could be referring to? Sound off in the comments below!
