We all remember Kelly Clarkson circa 2010: the nose piercing, the intense eyeliner, the ripped baggy jeans. She was every middle to high schooler’s idol (including mine). So of course– after her female-empowering single, “Miss Independent,” I promised myself that I would never have a serious boyfriend.
Fast forward to 2017 and that same girl who sang the words “miss keep your distance, miss unafraid, miss out of my way” is happily married with two children. In parallel, the same girl who promised to never have a serious boyfriend now lives with a boy she is madly in love with.
