Adele had better watch her back, because she’s not the only chart-topping singer to play Cupid by helping couples get engaged.
While the “Hello” singer’s concerts have regularly hosted couples becoming engaged onstage, Kelly Clarkson recently proved that she’s also no slouch when it comes to helping her fans pop the question to their significant others.
During a recent meet-and-greet with fans after a show, Clarkson assisted Alex Malerba to set up a surprise proposal to his boyfriend, Justin, who assumed they were simply posing for a photo with the star. What he didn’t know is that Malerba had hatched a scheme with Clarkson, and got down on one knee after the photo was taken.
After Justin accepted his beau’s proposal, crying tears of joy, Clarkson gushed about the emotional moment.
“Oh my God, I’m so happy,” she said. “I’m like a part of it. That was so beautiful. Congratulations.”
When she discovered the couple had been together for four years, however, Clarkson couldn’t resist serving up a joke.
“Damn,” she replied. “It’s about damn time somebody [proposed],” she quipped. “I’m like, ‘S**t or get off the pot.’”
