Singer Kelly Clarkson has denied she endorsed Texas Rep. Ron Paul for president.

Twitter followers of Clarkson blasted her in December for tweeting support for the GOP presidential candidate.

The 29-year-old Clarkson explained what happened to Rolling Stone, reported.

“I'm hanging out with my brother and my little niece, playing Barbies, and Ron Paul comes on TV. He doesn't BS around anything,” she said. “I was like, 'This dude is refreshing.' All I did was tweet what I thought, and people went crazy! All of a sudden people were like, 'You hate gay people' – what? I didn't even endorse him! All I said was that I liked him. I voted for Barack, so it's not even like I'm a hardcore Republican.”

However, Clarkson did say in her message that Paul had her vote.

“I love Ron Paul,” Clarkson tweeted. “I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance. If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he's got my vote. Too bad he probably won't.”

At the time, Paul was fending off allegations of publishing a series of racist and homophobic newsletters in the 1980s and 90s.
