"I honestly would collaborate with a lot of people, but everyone usually says no," she 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.
"I ask good people, 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."
Kelly, however, pointed out she was able to work with John Legend.

"I got John Legend to say yes, and he's cool. I can get country artists to sing with me and John Legend! I'm gonna keep John Legend. He's super credible and talented. I feel very good about myself with that one," she raved.

The mother-of-one has been harshly critical of other artists in the past, so many people are speculating that could be the reason why a lot of singers won't work with her.
During the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, she slammed female performers on Twitter.
