So, everyone’s heard the rumors about Kelly Clarkson feuding with Clive Davis. Recently, she just said that she’s always butted heads with the record execs over her albums and this is just the first time the public is hearing about it.
Right. I guess that might have something to do with the fact that every time someone puts a mic in front of her mouth, venom spills out. Here’s her latest interview with MTV. I am not even going to alter it since it speaks for itself. I have to agree about the Lindsay Lohan thing. Yikes.
Read on (it’s worth it):
“Everybody always wants me to go in different directions. Obviously they’re a record label so they need to sell records.They want the formula writers and the formula producers that do everybody else’s stuff, and while I love some of those people… and I don’t mind working with that…I just don’t like working with someone that gives you a song and is like, ‘Oh, I wrote this for you.’ But you find out that they’ve given it to every other artist and they turned it down, you know?”
Kelly might’ve been feeling pressure from her label, but she didn’t back down.
“My label literally sent me a Lindsay Lohan track from her last album and wanted me to record it for my new album. And while I like Lindsay Lohan, like I’m cool with her and I think she sings the song well… it’s already been on an album. I don’t care what pop star it is.”
Clarkson was kind of offended by the whole situation. “They were just sending me stuff that was like almost insulting. I’m like, ‘You can’t even find new songs?”
“You don’t want me to write my album but you’re sending me hand me downs?’ So, I ended up writing the entire thing with the people that I write well with.”
