Kelly Clarkson was sporting an eye patch on The Kelly Clarkson Show Wednesday.

To her guest Common, Kelly said, “I’m sorry I look like a pirate. I hurt my eye and I have to wear it. And, so, it’s ridiculous. You’re being interviewed by a pirate today.” to which he responded, “You look fly with your pirate look.” Clarkson then offered, “I think I’m gonna just make it my thing. This is my whole album, my next album cycle is this.”

So how did Kelly hurt her eye? She later told NBC Los Angeles’ California Live that she’s allergic to dust and that she was doing a shoot for The Voice when something got in her eye.

She said, “Something got in there, maybe cut it, did something. It got infected. It looked like Hitch, you know that movie?”

Clarkson continued, “When it first happened, it was so puffy and I was like, ‘What am I supposed to do?’ I had to shoot The Voice, a full day for, I think it was Battle Realities, in a patch and I was wearing all black ‘cause it was already the outfit that was chosen and I looked like an assassin.”

She also said the episodes taped do not air one right after the other, so viewers may be confused.“We did six shows total because we did two shows a day. Three days I had to wear a patch. Those are not consecutive, man. I’m gonna randomly be wearing a patch, like on a random Tuesday and people are going to be like, ‘She needs to figure out her eye situation.”
