She added: ‘Even at 38, I feel like I’m always changing and progressing in a good sense, in a good way. And I always want to make sure I’m being the best version of myself.’
Kelly also revealed that her mother Jeanne had always been a big influence on her decisions.
She said: ‘My mom has been telling me since I was a kid: you are who you surround yourself with.
‘You want to make sure you’re surrounded by people that also want to be the best versions of themselves and also want a good common goal for everyone, not just themselves, right?

‘People, like, could be bad for you in a certain time. And I think that everybody just goes, “Oh, well that means they’re bad.” Well it doesn’t necessarily mean that, it just means that you’re on different paths. And I think that that’s okay.
‘Everybody’s on a different learning curve.’
Kelly filed for divorce from Brandon earlier this year after seven years of marriage and two children together.

The singer previously said she was not going to be fully transparent about the split on account of the two children she shares with Brandon, daughter River, six, and son Remington, four.
The pop star told the Los Angeles Times in September: ‘I am a very open person, but I’m not going to be able to be truly open about this in certain aspects because there’s kids involved.’
Since the split, Kelly has been keeping busy with her career.
On top of hosting The Kelly Clarkson Show, she is also a coach on The Voice.
