Kelly Clarkson gets hit on by ''the hottest girls ever''.

The 'Since U Been Gone' singer got engaged to talent manager Brandon Blackstock last month - ending longstanding and unfounded rumours she was gay - but Kelly takes the fact so many girls are attracted to her as a great compliment.

She said: ''People think, 'Oh, she's been single for too long.' That's kind of an insult to the gay community. Being single doesn't mean you're gay. But I'm never insulted by it, obviously

''I mean, I get hit on by the hottest girls ever. Oh, my god, if I were a lesbian, I would be so in luck. But it's not just my thing. I've always battled for the boys' team.''

Kelly, 30, added she prefers the girls who approach her over most of the men who do, as they are much more polite.

She told Cosmopolitan magazine: ''Usually the guys who hit on me are tools.

''It's the ones that don't hit on you that make you like 'Why didn't you ask me out?' It's like 'American Idol' auditions.

''The guys who are the most confident are the horrible ones, and the ones who are good have no confidence at all.''
