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 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.”

I wish the media would get off of Kelly Clarkson’s back.
After a ton of criticism, Fox anchor Chris Wallace has issued a public apology to Kelly Clarkson over the offensive fat-shaming comments he made on The Mike Gallagher Show April 3rd.
“I sincerely apologize to Kelly Clarkson for my offensive comment,” Wallace told Us Weekly. “I admire her remarkable talent and that should have been the focus of any discussion about her.”
Both Wallace and host Gallagher surprised everyone when they unabashedly dug the singer and new mom over her weight.
“Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? You know the singer, Kelly Clarkson? Holy cow, did she blow up,” Gallagher said.
Wallace replied, “Really? Do we want to talk about some of your friends? Kelly Clarkson’s got a lovely voice. She could stay off the deep dish pizza for a little while.”
This isn’t the first time Clarkson has been mocked for her weight by horribly insensitive media affiliates. Last month, Katie Hopkins joked that the American Idol alum looked like she had eaten her backup dancers. Overall, I think Kelly has taken all this HORRIFIC backlash in stride– with a laugh and a roll of the eye. But she shouldn’t have to- this is really an unacceptable way to treat anyone, in the public eye or otherwise.
