Kelly Clarkson bestowed upon us humble plebs the most glorious and stirring “Shake It Off” cover to ever make its way through our speakers (not that I know of all too many “Shake It Off” covers to begin with, but you get my drift.) As Kelly’s embarrassingly obsessive #1 superfan from roughly years 2002 – 2007, I’m glad to know she’s still kicking ass without my angsty youthful self cheering on her every move. The the song starts around the 1:00 mark, and in case you were wondering, Taylor loved it too and gives her pop-star blessing. [Jezebel]
I remember watching and rooting for Kelly Clarkson when she was on Season 1 of “American Idol,” and to this day, I can’t get enough of her voice. I honestly feel like she’s one of the most underrated singers in the biz, so when she does gets credit where credit is due, I’m a happy girl. Let this video be Exhibit A.
Kelly covered Sam Smith’s ballad “Stay With Me” during a recent North Carolina concert, and absolutely blew it out of the park. While I love the original version of the song, there’s just a real, raw quality to Kelly’s voice that drives it home for me. Check out the video above and see for yourself.
“I vomit a good dozen times a day. It’s, like, bad. I vomited before coming out here and I had a peppermint so you didn’t [know]. I’m not even kidding, it’s so bad. It’s so bad. I know it’s like so gross. And that’s the thing, too — you’re not attractive when you’re pregnant. Everybody tells you [that] you glow and you’re hair is pretty and you’re nails are pretty. That’s total crap. My nails are short, my hair still falls out like it’s not all lush and beautiful and I have no glow. Unless it’s, like, something left over from a bad throw up. It’s horrible.”
Newly pregnant Kelly Clarkson (11 weeks!) tossed her cookies backstage on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. I pity the lowly PA who had to clean that one up. And by the way, totally disagree she’s “not attractive” while pregnant! [Celebuzz] [Photo: Pacific Coast News]
