Kelly Clarkson Unveils Her “Low-Key” Plans For Her 40th Birthday

Kelly Clarkson is turning 40!

But before she rings in her special day on the 24th of April, the Grammy Award-winning singer shared exclusively her birthday plans with E! News following the latest April 18 episode of NBC’s American Song Contest.

“I am literally so low-key,” she said. “I know it’s my big 4-0, but I’ve had a crazy two years, so I just wanted a chill birthday.”

Indeed a lot has happened within the frame of those two years; from putting in tons of work on her daytime talk-show—The Kelly Clarkson Show— to releasing new music, to her recent split from ex-husband, Brandon Blackstock. So for this particular birthday of hers, it’s only right that she simply wants to have a jolly swell time with the people dear to her heart.

“I’m going hiking with my friends, and that’s it y’all,” she shared. “And we’re doing a dinner with my band, so that’s it.”

Soon after the birthday festivities, the “Since You’ve Been Gone” singer will be hosting the first round of American Song Contest semi-finals coming up on April 25th, alongside Snoop Dogg. And with the fates of week five’s contestants hanging in the balance, Clarkson shared which acts she was holding out hope for to make it through.
