Republican Kelly Clarkson Says She’s Voting For Obama — And 18 Other Celebrity Endorsements

‘Tis the season for celebrity political endorsements, and just yesterday comes another one — this time from Kelly Clarkson. Kelly says that while she considers herself a Republican, she can’t abide by Mitt Romney’s anti-gay marriage stance, and has decided to support Obama. Additionally, she said, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again … 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.”

Additionally, she voiced concern over women’s rights issues. “I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s,” she said.

Last year, Clarkson voiced her support for Ron Paul, but then retracted it after it was found that Paul was linked to several racist and homophobic pamphlets. “I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights,” she said.

No “Blue Ivy” Trademark Jay-Z And Beyonce

  • Jay-Z and Beyonce tried to trademark baby Blue Ivy’s name, but alas, were denied, which means Blue Ivy Events in Boston will continue to share its name with the famous tot. I’m guessing Bey and Jay will trademark their next child’s name in advance… [NYMag.com]
