Kelly clarkson


Our hearts go out to Kelly Clarkson this weekend after she was slammed on American radio programme The Mike Gallagher Show for having gained weight in recent years.

Host Mike Gallagher was enjoying an informal chat with FOX News journalist Chris Wallace when things took a turn for the seriously spiteful.

Shooting the breeze about their favourite pizza toppings, Mike suddenly decided to bring the Because of You singer into question.

Seemingly out of nowhere, 54-year-old Mike suddenly said: "Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? You know the singer, Kelly Clarkson? Holy cow, did she blow up."

Initially reluctant to engage in the body-shaming conversation, FOX star Chris called Mike out on his cruel remarks, but it wasn't long before he decided to join in.

In what sounded like playground bullying, 67-year-old Chris said: "She could stay off the deep dish pizza for a while."

Referring to the fact that Kelly had only recently become a mum, the two men decided that couldn't account for Kelly's shape and continued to slam the star for her appearance.

Kelly has admitted in the past that she refuses to allow people's cruel jibes to get to her and we hope she continues to maintain that healthy attitude.


It's been a brilliant couple of years for Kelly Clarkson – she got married, welcomed her first child and became a mentor on the show that made her famous, American Idol.

Aside from all her successes though, Kelly has had to deal with a barrage of criticism about her weight, and she has revealed she is sick of it being an issue.

Just last month, Kelly was forced to retaliate publicly when the silver-tongued Katie Hopkins lashed out at her for no reason at all, asking Twitter if Kelly had eaten "all of her backing singers":

Ouch. Kelly responded brilliantly at the time, saying, "I’m awesome! It doesn’t bother me. It’s a free world. Say what you will." All the same, she admitted this week that the comments about her weight have become increasingly upsetting.

Speaking on The Ellen Show, Kelly addressed her haters, saying, "I love how people think that’s new — like, welcome to the past 13 years. Yeah, I was the biggest girl on [American Idol], too. And I wasn’t big, but people would call me big because I was the biggest one on Idol, and I’ve kind of always gotten that.”

Despite her tough attitude, Kelly admitted the comments can be hurtful at times, especially when they come from someone she knows or from a fan.

"Well, it hurts your feelings more if it’s someone else that you like,” she said. “I think what hurts my feelings for people is that I’ll have a meet-and-greet after the show and a girl who’s, like, bigger than me will be in the meet-and-greet and be like, ‘Wow, if they think you’re big, I must be so fat to them.'”

However Kelly says she isn't going to let the negative comments get her down. "We are who we are," she said. "So sometimes I’m more fit and I get into kickboxing hardcore. And then sometimes I don’t, and I’m like… I’d rather have wine."




Katie Hopkins hit headlines last week when she wrote some very cruel and unnecessary tweets about Kelly Clarkson’s performance on The Graham Norton Show.

Katie, who is well known for her Twitter taunts, targeted the new mum after her performance on the chat show, writing: “Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all of her backing singers? Happy I have wide-screen.”

Thankfully, we are delighted to report that Kelly hasn’t a notion who Katie is and she definitely doesn’t care what she think of her!

When asked by Heat magazine what she made of the comments, Kelly said: “I don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. Someone tweeted something about me?”

When it was explained who Katie is and what she does (does anyone actually know…?) Kelly had the best response ever: “Oh, and she’s tweeted something nasty about me? That’s because she doesn’t  know me. I’m awesome! It doesn’t bother me. It’s a free world. Say what you will.”

Best. Response. Ever. You’re right, Kelly – you ARE awesome!

This will be our retort the next time someone says anything mean to us – because we’re awesome! 


Kelly Clarkson's recent appearance on the hugely popular Graham Norton Show became a massive talking point on social media after controversial personality, Katie Hopkins, decided to take numerous swipes at the mum-of-one's weight.

Smiling broadly for the camera, the young mum-of-one wore her blond hair in loose waves and rocked a pretty banging outfit, but it looks like Katie couldn't handle the fact Kelly's figure has changed somewhat.

Taking to Twitter to voice her disgust, the notoriously outspoken Celebrity Big Brother contestant wrote: "Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all of her backing singers? Happily I have wide-screen. #grahamnorton.”

Members of the public immediately leaped to Kelly's defence, reminding mum-of-three, Katie, that Kelly recently gave birth, but that wasn't enough to silence the acid-tongued Hopkins.

Determined to offend everyone on the planet if she can, Katie jeered: "Darling, if you had a baby a year ago, that is not baby weight. It is fat. Quit calling it cute names to make yourself feel better."

Suggesting we're all weak-willed if we're not in possession of a supermodel's figure, Katie taunted: "Baby weight, puppy fat, muffin top. Nope. Just fat love." Charming.

Kelly has yet to respond to Katie's frankly bizarre torrent of abuse and we hope she doesn't even bother.

We think Kelly looks fab!



People are LOVING Kelly Clarkson’s cover of Shake It Off – especially Taylor Swift!

Taylor tweeted her approval of Kelly’s cover, saying it was a perfect way to mark 26 hours to her album release (which happened today).

The singer didn’t just do a regular version of the song however, she changed it and made it her own. 

While we’re not convinced it’s better than Taylor’s version, it has to be said it’s damn good!

The video has amassed over one million views on YouTube since Taylor's shout out on Saturday evening. 



…little baby girl, aww!

Kelly wrote, “We just found out we’re having a girl officially! I knew it! Only a girl could cause this much drama with all this vomiting ha!”.

We all know the singer has had a tough time during her pregnancy, tweeting numerous times about her morning sickness, “Ladies if you r pregnant & sick as a dog trust me when I say the one thing u will keep down might just be “baked potatoes” #godblesspotatoes”.

Kelly also took a photo of her dogs and claimed the small victory of being able to walk them without puking. Poor girl.

Get well soon Kelly and congratulations!
