Check out the August issue of Self featuring our favorite American Idol Kelly Clarkson! With an exclusive interview alongside eye-catching photos, the pop star reveals "I don't care about selling millions. . . I just want to write music that people will relate to." Singing her heart out, the 25-year-old American Idol winner wrote or cowrote every song on the new album, My December and isn't worried about the success—or lack thereof of the album which shows her confidence. Ultimately, she says "I try to make the songs as real as what I'm feeling in my heart" On the cover photo and inside feature photos, Kelly Clarkson sparkles in Alex Woo's 14kt Yellow Gold Little Big Note.
