Kelly Clarkson Distracting Herself from Pregnancy Woes by Making New Music 

Jeremy Cowart/RCA RecordsKelly Clarkson has been very open about all the physical ailments she's had as a result of her pregnancy, including non-stop nausea.  But the singer has found a good way to distract herself: by making new music.

Kelly, who obviously doesn't believe in taking Christmas week off, tweeted on Thursday, "Recorded a soulful song with and I have to say, it's pretty bad ass :) A nice distraction from being pregnant! Thanks girl!"

Country star Martina McBride is releasing an album of cover songs in March called Everlasting, and she's already recorded a duet with Gavin DeGraw for the project.  It's likely that this duet with Kelly will appear on that disc, which will feature songs made famous by Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, The Supremes, Elvis Presley and other legendary acts.

Kelly's now wrapping up a very successful holiday season.  Not only did she get to celebrate her first Christmas as a married woman -- and a mom-to-be, to boot -- but she also has the satisfaction of knowing that her disc Wrapped in Red is Billboard's #1 holiday album.  The album's first single, "Underneath the Tree," also topped the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.
