Curious about Kelly Clarkson's half-shaved look? In an interview PopCrush Nights host Lisa Paige, the superstar opened up, explaining how it was her difficult pregnancy that inspired her daring haircut.

“It was right after River was born," Clarkson recalls. "I just had a really rough pregnancy. I went to my hair girl and I was like, 'I need something different, I need something to make me feel less like a mom.' Because I just felt like I was super locked up. I was just so sick all the time, I wasn’t feeling good."

As the singer was trying to decide on a new look, the hairdresser's daughter walked in. "She had blond in the front and brown in the back, and it was shaved on one side. And I was like, ‘I’m totally about to jack your style!’” she recalls.

Clarkson's new 'do is one of her edgier looks. The hairstyle features blond and brown locks on one side of her head and a close-cropped shave on the other. While she is head-over-heels for her new image, Clarkson says there may be one downside. "I don’t know how I’m going to grow it out!” she laughs.

Though she may have had a difficult pregnancy, Clarkson wouldn't trade motherhood for the world. The American Idol alum rarely misses a chance to gush about her daughter, River Rose.

"She totally rolls! She rolls from one side to the other side of the room,” Clarkson says. “She doesn’t scoot or do anything else. She sits up on her own and everything, she just doesn’t want to be bothered with crawling. She rolls everywhere!”

Clarkson's new album, Piece by Piece, was released in early March.
