Clarkson gave one of Taylor Swift’s biggest hits of the year, “Blank Space,” a soulful makeover on Saturday, and everyone’s pleased about it, even Tay!
A concert-goer requested the 1989 hit during the sold-out performance at Molson Canadian Amphitheatre for the Toronto stop of her Piece by Piece tour. As expected, the crowd ATE UP the cover, and so did Swift. Took to Twitter to express her love for the rendition, writing: “Kelly Clarkson covered Blank Space and YES.”
Uh, YEAH and YES!
Check out the cover below, and tell us which version you like better. I gotta say… I’m a fan of the Clarkson cover!
Yeah, she likes to have FUN (…with country music legends)
In an interview with Rolling Stone,Kelly Clarkson talks about lots of stuff: weed, family, American Idol. But the best part happens when Rolling stone asked the singer what she does on a night off, she talks about seeing movies and, you know, playing backgammon with country music legends…
What do you do for fun when you have a night off? We have a movie theater in our house, and we just watched Interstellar. Oh, my gosh, it’s so trippy! I want to be an astronaut at this point. We also play board games. My sister, my mom, me and Reba are the gamers in the family. Everyone else we just drag into it.
Who wins? Reba and I are both competitive – she’ll tell you she’s not, but she’s a liar. I can win Sequence, but if we play backgammon or Mexican Train dominoes, she kills me. She’s like a backgammon magician.
No big deal, just playing board games with Reba McEntire. To read more of the interview, go HERE!
Kelly Clarkson does have a skeleton in her closet (his name? Justin Guarini).
The singer has no interest in seeing the incredible flop From Justin To Kelly, but even more so, she does NOT want her daughter, River Rose, to see it either!
“I have a little joke with our nanny, because she told me she loves that movie. She was like, ‘My roommate and I used to watch it all the time! I’m totally going to show your daughter From Justin to Kelly.’ I’m like, ‘I will fire you.'”
AHAHAHAH. That’s amazing. To be fair, by the time River could appreciate the splendid ridiculousness of the American Idol movie, it won’t even be relevant and probably can only be found on ebay or in some ironic video stores.
Kelly doesn’t have any plans to star in any upcoming films as of yet, but because she recently ended her longtime deal with RCA Records, she could do WHATEV!
“Man, I have no frigging clue what’s coming next, but it’s going to be fun. I haven’t ever been able to pick who to work with as an artist, so it’s nice now that it’s a choice. It’ll be cool to ‘Breakaway,’ for lack of a better term, and see what’s out there.”
Kelly Clarkson keeps her feminism up and bodyshaming DOWN…and we love her for it.
Kelly talks to Redbook about her husband, her weight and culture in this very insightful interview! Here are some highlights:
On husband Brandon Blackstock: “Brandon is not my other half. He’s a whole and I’m a whole. I’ve never believed in someone taking care of me, and that’s probably because I grew up poor and without a lot of family stability.”
On marriage being a huge priority: “I always swore ours would not be a relationship where we have to schedule sex. That is never going to happen. We put each other first. I call it the oxygen-mask mentality—take care of yourself first!”
On her weight: “I don’t obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why other people have such a problem with it,” she says of her Internet trolls.”There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism–that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism. But someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can. You always want what someone else has.”
