Kelly Clarkson Really Hates Being Pregnant, Really Loves Talking About How Much She Hates It

Kelly Clarkson Ellen Show December 2013

Eleven-weeks pregnant Kelly Clarkson stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about everything from the baby in her belly to her wedding. She didn’t mention those pesky rumors about her husband cheating on her, because while Ellen could probably get her to talk about it for hours if she really wanted to, she’s a benevolent interview magician. She only uses her powers for good, not evil.

When I said before that Kelly Clarkson talks in this interview, I mean she TALKS. T-A-L-K-S. It’s like Ursula the Sea Witch pulled a reverse Ariel on her and made her incapable of not speaking. Ellen occasionally makes noises that could almost be words, but Kelly just jumps right back in and talks some more. I will admit it’s very entertaining, but by the end of it I ended up wanting to take a week-long break from talking just to conserve the world’s words. Because I think she says as many words in this six-minute interview as I say in a whole week.

A bunch of those words are about how much she hates being pregnant. Not only does she hate all the vomiting involved — including the vomiting she did right before the interview — but she also hates other pregnant women who don’t have that pesky vomiting problem. Like in a “want to hit all of them with my car” way. Thanks, Kelly. I’m currently writing “don’t be pregnant” on my bucket list.

Watch it all play out below, including the part where she accidentally insults Blue Ivy and chronicles how much ugly crying she did during her wedding vows. It’s a long interview, folks. You might want to break it into three parts like The Hobbit and wait a year to watch each part.

      I love that Ellen doesn’t even know what to say.

      Ugh. Nothing like making all of those women who can’t get pregnant or carry a baby to term feel even worse. Oh poor Kelly, having normal morning sickness = Kate Middleton had it much worse and she never complained about it.

      Kelly Clarkson needs to shut her piehole. So many women would love to have the experience she is having. It makes her look like an ungrateful child.

        dude if I were puking every day I would bitch and complain about it too.

      Pregnant women can’t catch a break can they?… Say all nice things about pregnancy: you’re wrong, boastful, or lying. Be candid about what’s awful in pregnancy: you’re a bad, immature, unfeeling woman. Honestly, pregnancy can really SUCK despite the wonderful gift you receive in the end. Saying pregnancy symptoms are awful does not make you an immature person, a bad mom, an unfeeling person, or a wimp. It makes you HUMAN. Pregnancy is different for everyone. It can be scary, isolating and VERY hard. We are allowed to say how we feel and think what we think even if some people have no major issues with their own pregnancies or are unfortunately not able to have their own children. Sharing one’s life experience is not direct commentary on other peoples’ lives… Stop making other women and moms feel bad because they are being truthful. Women need all the support they can get… especially from other women.

        Sure, they can catch a break. All they need to do is sound sufficiently happy and grateful for their pregnancy without ever sounding smug or in any way diminishing the experience of women who either can’t become pregnant or choose not to, and neither complain too much about its discomforts nor minimize or gloss over pregnancy’s difficulties either directly or by implication, and be sure to talk about your coming baby enough to emphasize the significance of the blessed event yet be very careful not to talk about it too much. That’s all.
