Kelly Clarkson was the winner of the first season of American Idol, her debut album sold over 4.5 million copies and her debut single was the best selling single of the year and broke the record for the largest jump to number one in the history of the charts. Since then, Clarkson has sold millions of records, won a few Grammy Awards and has become a mother.
Recently, Clarkson’s weight has been under high scrutiny by the media. On Friday, during a radio interview, Fox anchor Chris Wallace began to discuss the singer’s weight as well. One host said “Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? You know the singer, Kelly Clarkson? Holy cow, did she blow up,” and Wallace replied “Wallace paused for a moment, and 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.”
In a recent interview, when discussing the comments on her weight by the media, Clarkson stated “”I love that people think [this] is new. Like, welcome to the past 13 years, I yo-yo. Sometimes I’m more fit and I get into kickboxing and hardcore, and then sometimes I don’t and go, ‘Nope, I’d rather have wine!”
