Like many celebrities, Kelly Clarkson appears on the September issue of Self looking more svelte than recent pictures of her in real life. We’ve been talking about airbrushing all week here at The Frisky, and we’ll continue to until it’s less of an industry standard. (Mind you, once that day comes, then we’ll probably talk about the dinosaurs who’re still doing it.) While it’s no big whoop that yet another star is airbrushed on a glossy magazine cover — after all, they all are each and every month — we noticed that Jezebel suggested that the editors at Self had not just airbrushed but also used Photoshop to slim the pop star down. Way down. Keep reading »

Kelly Clarkson‘s new single, “Already Gone,” probably sounds a bit familiar. That’s because you’ve already heard the music in Beyonce‘s love ballad, “Halo.” Evidently, music producer Ryan Tedder stupidly gave both ladies the same track, although they wrote very different songs to go with it. Beyonce beat Kelly out of the gate and by the time Kelly heard “Halo” and tried to stop the release of her song, it was too late. This snafu is causing all kinds of radio confusion—when Kelly’s song starts to play, people are expecting to hear “Halo.” And Kelly is very worried that people will label her a copycat.

VH1 is bringing back its “VH1 Divas” concert series Sept. 17 after a four-year hiatus. But don’t get too excited yet. Some idiot over at the network thinks Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis, Kelly Clarkson, and Adele should join the ranks of Mary J. Blige, Cher, Aretha Franklin, and Celine Dion, who have all been honored on the broadcast concert before. These four young singers, however, are not divas — they’re not even on their way to becoming divas! Keep reading »
- Heidi and Spencer’s Costa Rican experience has certainly not been the pampered one they’re used to, but it doesn’t constitute “torture,” either. [TMZ] — Just check out their sweet digs above.
- Tila Tequila wrote on her MySpace account that she is angry about false pregnancy reports…even though she was the one who allegedly started them. She then said, “Maybe I was pregnant, or maybe I wasn’t pregnant.” [People] – Is anyone else as confused as I am?
- Mariah’s latest movie, “Tennessee,” hit an all-time low, averaging just five viewers per showing. [Perez] — Stop making movies, Mariah. Isn’t having a five-octave vocal range enough?
Over the weekend, The New York Times’ advice column, “Social Q’s,” got a query from a recently dumped girl who just couldn’t seem to cheer up. Writer Philip Galanes pointed out, the proper soundtrack can get you grooving to your own gloom! He singled out Pink’s new anthem about getting back out there after her own divorce, “So What.” He then encouraged the sad soul to sing along at full blast until it became her new mantra: “So, so what/I’m still a rock star/I’ve got my rock moves/And I don’t need you.” Yeah, that’s some solid (as a rock) advice! But Pink isn’t the only one who has weathered the storm after a split. Since misery loves company, here are The Frisky’s picks for beating the blues to get you back in the mood to be your butt-kicking self! Keep reading »
Kelly Clarkson explained to a reporter how a good luck charm, or lack thereof, helped her win American Idol. It wasnâ€™t a rabbitâ€™s foot or a four-leaf clover — her secret was safely between her legs. Kelly goes commando! She claims that since her panties have been gone, sheâ€™s been able to breathe and give her performances her all. But, Kelly worries sheâ€™ll be exposed as the next celebrity crotch shot victim and nobody wants a pap to smear them. Despite her fear of winding up like Britney Spears, she stands by her naked ambition, “Why’d anyone want a little thing up their butt when they can go free?” [ Star Pulse] Keep reading »
