Kelly Clarkson may have plenty of celebrity guests on her new self-titled talk show, but the 37-year-old musician isn’t able to name one of today’s top stars!

In a game called “Hot Hands” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, Clarkson is shown photos of stars and asked to tell the audience one question she’d ask them. 

But when a photo of Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex pops up, Clarkson is at a loss. 

“I know this one. She’s a princess,” Clarkson says, looking stumped. Finally, DeGeneres, who met with Markle and her husband, Prince Harry, over the summer, provides Clarkson with her name. 

“Oh, she was on Suits. Actually I love Suits,” Clarkson declares. “I don’t know why she doesn’t look like a Meghan to me. Maybe I’ll ask her about that. But I would ask what are the stresses of being a princess? That’s what I would ask.”

As for other A-listers, Clarkson has plenty of questions. For Drake she says, “I would probably ask him, ‘Are you high when you record every other song because they’re so chill?’ And I thought maybe he’s just getting high.”

If Miley Cyrus were to come in for an appearance, “She has a new CD coming out so I’d ask her about her new music and her new life and everything.”

As for her Voice co-coach, Blake Shelton, Clarkson quips, “Why do you hate me? I don’t understand. I’m so nice.”

She also suggests an epic collab when Ariana Grande’s picture pops up. 

“Girl can sing! I would probably ask her to sing with me first of all, and then I would ask her how she keeps up with her schedule,” she says.
