Kelly Clarkson has considered giving up her fame but feels it is important to keep going out there because she wants her daughters to see her ''accomplishing all these things while still nailing it as a mom''.
Kelly Clarkson thinks about giving up her singing career ''all the time''.
The 'Heartbeat Song' hitmaker - who has River Rose, two, and seven-month-old Remington Alexander with her husband Brandon Blackstock - admits she was ''in a very dark place for a long time'' and has considered ditching her fame but knows it is important to show her daughters it is good to be a working mother.
She said: ''I was in a very dark place for a long time. It's just so hard to have normalcy. I love to sing, and I love to talk to people at meet and greets.
''It's just all the c**p that comes along with this job ... I don't love traveling, because I'm never home. It's hard when you have a family.''
Asked if she has considered giving it up, she added: ''Oh, all the time. I mean, I'm always going to be a singer, but the level I'm at ... I have constant guilt. I don't have to work; I think it's because I have that option that I feel the guilt. But it's important for my girls, especially, to see me as a woman accomplishing all these things while nailing it as a mom. I always come back to that.''
And the 34-year-old singer also opened up about how motherhood has made her ''next-level confident''.
She shared to Good Housekeeping magazine: ''I sound like such a tool, but becoming a mother has made me next-level confident. I've never felt more empowered. I feel like my 20s were spent walking on eggshells making sure everyone felt loved and not really expressing my opinion.
''As a mom, you just don't have time, so you get straight to the point. I go to bed every night and the list of what I've accomplished is astounding.''
