LONDON, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Kelly Clarkson said in a recent radio interview she's starting to feel like she has "the plague" after several performers turned her down for possible collaborations.

"I honestly would collaborate with a lot of people, but everyone usually says no," the star reportedly told BBC Radio 1. "I'm not kidding you. I have legitimately asked several people that I'm not going to call out, and that's cool, but I don't know."

The 32-year-old went on to say that she's only asked "good people" to sing with her, including John Legend, who said yes.

"I don't want to sing with crap people, so I mean, I ask people who are great vocalists, but I'm not going to point out anyone. I have asked several people...Sometimes I feel like I have the plague, or leprosy, they're like, 'If you get too close...' I don't know."

"I feel like I'm a very nice person that you might want to sing with me...I can get country artists to sing with me and John Legend!" she added. "I'm gonna keep John Legend. He's super credible and talented. I feel very good about myself with that one."
