BMG Label to Kelly Clarkson: Don't Write Because You're a Woman

Here are some snippets of Kelly Clarkson‘s interview from Entertainment Weekly‘s cover story in this week’s issue. Her answers are quite telling:

You look pretty normal to me right now, but people often comment on your weight. Does that bother you? You’re just like, Oh, well, that sucks. But at the end of the day, it doesn’t suck that much or else I’d do something about it. I work out when I want to work out; I don’t work out when I don’t want to work out. After a long day and I’m tired, yeah, a cookie helps. It makes me feel good. It’s soul food! There’s a reason why it’s called that. I drop, like, 15 pounds when I’m on tour.

Why exactly are they so resistant to you writing? It’s because I’m a woman — because I’m a young woman. I literally heard someone say it [during a conference call]. They didn’t know I was on the phone. Like, really? We’re living in what century? I hung up. I was like, I can’t even address that. ‘Cause that was the most ignorant thing I’ve ever heard.

  • laura

    laura to kelly, ‘um…maybe you shouldn’t write b/c your new song sucks hard.’

    but women can write pretty well…just not this woman.

  • UndelusionalKCFan

    Billy go to hell. Did you even read the article? If you read that article or if you’re just going around being a b1tch you seriously deserve to die. People like you do not deserve to live for whatever reason you posted your comment. Grow up you scum.

  • stephanie

    wow go kelly i hate she had to go through all this to get her cd out . and what sexies they are i’m definally buying it on june 26th and so yall. and to the person who said kelly can’t aritw whatever she wrote because of you , behind these hazel eyes , walkaway and co-wrote on others that have been hits so yeah be quite . And kelly don’t get lipo kellys fine and probaly will loose some before her tour not because she big or anything cause she not but because she needs to tone up cause when she perfroms she like all over the stage so that helps to .

    Rock on Kelly! You go girl! She is amazing and awsome cuz she’s taking all this bad stuff and she follows her gut and beliefs and keeps on going. She’s a great role model. Her albulm will be awsome, her label is just jealous. I can’t believe she actually heard this discrimination. That sucks and it is ignorant. And Billy, keep your **** to yourself. TESSA, good post. I would say the same.

  • http://www.tornadopat4sbcglobal.net AP44

    And laura, your ears suck cuz this song is rockin. Kelly writes awsome songs (because of you, behind these hazel eyes, etc.) Oh so you can write better songs than Kelly right? You are the master songwriter musician who thinks good songs suck just because. You know nothing about music and is the worst critic ever.
