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.

Sometimes, we suppose, even celebrities need a few extra bucks. Maybe they want to buy a new Benz or a house in the south of France or add a bowling alley to the basement of their mansion? Either way, they often turn to advertising when singing, acting or modeling gigs start to dry up. But some celebrity endorsements have left us scratching our heads. Take Lisa Rinna, for instance, who announced she would be the new spokesperson for Depends Silhouettes. But not because she has bladder control issues. Because she wants to empower women. Not that there’s anything wrong with empowering women. It’s very noble. But there must be other ways. We are looking forward to the commercials. Keep on clicking to see some more baffling celebrity endorsements. [WOW]
