You’re Not Gonna See Kelly Clarkson Knocked Up Anytime Soon

June 11th, 2007 // 13 Comments

I like Kelly Clarkson. Her music does little for me (other than “Since U Been Gone” which is up there with The Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” as the best pop song of all time), but she breaks it down for ya. She told “Elle” that she’d be a bad Mom. You know, the kind that locks the kid in the barn and gives em’ enemas and then the kid ends up having split personalities. What, you didn’t see “Sybil”? That was a hot flick!

In a revealing new interview in Elle magazine, Clarkson confesses that she thinks she’d be a “horrible” mother, has never been in love, and doesn’t necessarily want to get married either.

On not wanting children:
“My point of view is that I shouldn’t be a mother at all, because I’d be horrible. I’m not willing to be that selfless.”

On marriage: “I’m not keen on marriage. I don’t let many people in. Men come and go. Friends are what I care about.”

Obvious lesbian. Kidding. Kel also talked about her ongoing bitch brawl with octogenarian music nazi Clive Davis. Keep reading (and see more photos from her Elle spread) for what she had to say about him trying to bar her from releasing her new album.

The 25-year-old American Idol winner also opens up about her well-publicized disputes with her record label, revealing that Clive Davis offered her $10 million to give up five songs that she wrote for her new album in exchange for some top 40 surefire hits of his choosing.

“I am a good singer, so I can’t possibly be a good writer,” she says sarcastically in the July issue of the mag. “Women can’t possibly be good at two things.”

Testify, Kel! She might have wanted to take the money, though. It sounds like her new album isn’t going to be flying off iTunes. And you already probably guessed this, but yes, I would completely compromise my artistic integrity for ten million. Is she f*cking crazy? Write a letter of defense for Paris Hilton for 10 million? How do you spell “obvious miscarriage of justice”?

    Poor girl. Is she crazy?!! She should have been advised that business most often, not pretty. She could have already ruined her career with this diva move. If she had kept her ego intact, she would have had plenty of time to produce her own works. Sounds like the industry is finally getting to her. And, I liked her from AI. She was one of the few talents that the show actually produced.

    Good for her, all the way around! I wish there were more people who would recognise that they’d be bad parents…there would be alot less f*ed up people in the world.

  4. THere is absolutely nothing wrong what anything she said there.

    Good for her!!!!!!!

  5. interesting

    There is nothing wrong w/her words when you’ve had a bad marriage or a kid out of wedlock, but to be honest, her comments are quite unusual for a never-married young woman to make… unless…

    She has somehow been traumatized while growing up with her own family (her song “Because of You”).

    Also, like someone said on another site, she could be a lesbian. I’m really starting to wonder about the latter.

  6. There is also nothing wrong with what she said if you are not ready for commitment or don’t want a kid. That doesn’t make her a lesbian! Jesus People!

    I like her. She had the guts to stand up to Clive Davis (She was actually told women either shouldn’t or can’t write songs). And what the hell is so wrong w/ her not wanting to be a mother? No one blasts George Clooney.

    5 tracks is a lot. And, let’s be honest, I highly doubt they’d all be surefire hits. OK, giving up 2 or 3 tracks, I’d understand. Or I could see her giving up 5 of her self-written tracks if he gave her the power of veto or let her modify a couple of them. But, 5 tracks w/o any say-so? What if one of those turned out to be ‘push my buttons’ the remix? So, good for her for sticking to her guns.

    Oh lord we all KNOW she is a lesbian. I mean – if your integrity is that important to you – why not COME OUT?? OH I see. It’s only important SOMETIMES. Like you can write your own songs – but if you admit your gay – your afraid no one will buy the record. AND Clive Davis knows what he is doing. I agree with what she did – but she should have taken the money. She could write songs on her NEXT ALBUM for fucks sake. She could have done the – 10 million for 5 songs on this album but the next one is all me. What’s wrong with that? You basically got an extra 10 million and the next album they can’t fuck with you. Put the ones they took off this one on the next one. Sometimes, I swear people just aren’t as smart as J Harvey. LOL

    UTLH -

    And you believe the ten million story? Why? Lesbian or not, she is talented. Why the hell does it matter? And just because someone doesn’t want to commit doesn’t make them gay. And being gay isn’t a wrong thing anyway, but it sure seems to bring out the Puritan, self righteous assholes on both sides of the coin..gay and not. Literally sucks to be anyone in the public eye. Can’t please everyone…so I say fuck it all and please yourself.

    And someone needs to take away Clive’s formaldehyde or slash that Dorian Gray picture he has hidden somewhere. It’s time for the Dread Lord to retire, for cripe’s sake.

    Go Kelley! Nothing wrong with being honest with yourself and others.

    Why are all the truly talented people so strange? Kelly is talking like she’s stabbing it with a knife — like she will never want to marry and never want a child. Why is she so rigid? She’ll probably be a totally different person in 10 to 15 years. If she’s a lesbian, she may have a steady girlfriend and desire to rais a child with her. She should just say that RIGHT NOW she has no desire to do those things and leave it at that.

    First of all, what the h*ll does being gay have to do with anything? It isn’t anyone’s business but hers who she has sex with…I just don’t get the “oooh shes gay” thing-so what?
    Lots of young women feel that they don’t want to have children…sometimes with age they change their minds, sometimes not…and again, it has nothing to do with being gay-gay folks have kids you know.
    I like Kelly. She has a great voice and she seems to know what she wants in the business. She has big brass ones for standing up to Clive!
