Kelly Clarkson's 'People Like Us' May Be The Next Gay Anthem (AUDIO)

Have you heard Kelly Clarkson's newest song "People Like Us" yet?

The third song to be released from her upcoming Greatest Hits -- Chapter One album -- expected to drop on Nov. 19 -- is poppy and upbeat, but the biggest draw may be its appeal to the gay community. Reminiscent of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," Clarkson's latest has the potential to become the next gay anthem.

As VH1 points out, the songs are very similar in beat and tempo, but are almost identical when it comes to the themes. While Gaga's "Born This Way" is very straightforward, explicitly referring to members of the LGBT community, Clarkson's song is more subtle.

"We come into this world unknown, but know we are not alone," Clarkson sings in the introduction. "The change is coming, it’s our time now."

In October, Clarkson expressed her support for President Barack Obama in his reelection campaign, citing Gov. Mitt Romney's stance on gay marriage as her reason for choosing to vote for the Democratic candidate despite being a "Republican at heart."

“I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again," the 30-year-old Texas native told the Daily Star. "I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married."
