Kelly Clarkson is cute, right? She’s not the most amazing pop star there is, but she’s a solid one with really catchy songs, a great voice and a not completely obnoxious personality. So what’s not to like? Well, some people seem to have an issue with the fact that she’s not a stick figure. And those people are assholes.
In this case, we’re talking about Katie Hopkins, who, if you’re not from the UK, you probably won’t know. She’s basically a loud mouth who says really awful and offensive things about everyone just to rile people up and it totally works. I don’t really agree with most of what she says, but I don’t think she does, either. Her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother a couple months ago kind of proved that she has a heart – and she absolutely hated Perez Hilton, so that kinda makes her okay in my books.
Anyhow, when Kelly appeared on The Graham Norton Show late last month, Katie took to Twitter to make fun of her weight, saying the following:
- “Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all of her backing singers? Happily I have wide-screen. #grahamnorton.”
Which she then followed up just yesterday with…
- “Look chubsters, Kelly Clarkson had a baby a year ago. That is no longer baby weight. That is carrot cake weight. Get over yourselves.”
Absolutely ridiculous and quite mean, but Kelly isn’t letting it get to her. She stopped by Heat Magazine this week and wasn’t all that concerned with Katie’s comments, especially since she doesn’t even know who the hell she is.
“I don’t have a clue what you’re talking about. Someone tweeted something about me?” After explaining what Katie had written (and who the hell she was) Kelly laughed: “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.”
“I’ve just never cared what people think,” she tells us. “It’s more if I’m happy and I’m confident and feeling good, that’s always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family – I don’t seek out any other acceptance.”
Aw, bless her heart. I think Kelly is great – and I agree, I’m sure she’s awesome!
