Kelly Clarkson continues to crush it as a role model, this time opening up to Redbook about her family.

The Piece by Piece singer kicked off her interview by adorably talking about her husband Brandon Blackstock and imparting some very valuable relationship advice.

"Brandon is not my other half," she said. "He's a whole and I'm a whole. I've never believed in someone taking care of me, and that's probably because I grew up poor and without a lot of family stability.

She added, "I always swore ours would not be a relationship where we have to schedule sex. That is never going to happen. We put each other first. I call it the oxygen-mask mentality — take care of yourself first!"

Kelly's been making headlines for her positive outlook on body image, another topic she touched on in the interview.

"I don't obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why other people have such a problem with it," she told Redbook. "There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism — that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism. But someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can. You always want what someone else has."

You can read the rest of Kelly's interview when the May 2015 issue of Redbook hits newsstands on April 21.
