Kelly Clarkson: Drinking Just Adds Calories!

Kelly Clarkson: Drinking Just Adds Calories!

Kelly Clarkson dresses casual in an orange tee and jeans as she arrives at the airport in New York City on Thursday night.

The American Idol champ recently opened up to USA weekend in their July 13-15, 2007 issue.

On her boyfriend cheating on her last year: “My standards were low because I was lonely. I met this musician, not a famous musician–he doesn’t even deserved to be named–and I thought he was totally into me. And then you find out, oh God, that he had this whole other relationship on the side, and that he is only dating you to get into pictures and to become famous.”

On the stress of her second album and two bouts of pneumonia: “Everything caught up with me in a bad way. My body was wearing down, and my emotions were wearing down. I was trying to get over someone. I hadn’t seen my friends and family for a while, and it was becoming a nuisance [to see them] because I was so busy. I was traveling, and then there was more added to the schedule. It just got chaotic. I was 24, and that is pretty young to be the boss of so much. And it caught up with me. I couldn’t smile. I couldn’t do anything. I broke down. I cried so much I couldn’t speak. I was that tired. I was drained. I didn’t want to act, didn’t want to smile–I didn’t want to pretend. I just broke. …It was the lowest point of my life and my career.”

On having tried marijuana once: “It was in Amsterdam. It is legal there, and it is not legal here. I don’t ever do anything illegal here. I have never smoked anything in my life. I’ve never tried any drugs. I wouldn’t do anything that would cause holes in your brain or your nasal cavity. Call me Texan, but I don’t think of marijuana like that. I don’t understand people who drink too much. I think, ‘Why do you drink so much? It just adds calories.’”

On her weight issues: “I have never been to a point where I have been so unhappy that I have said to myself: ‘Oh God, you are fat!’ I don’t allow myself to go there. I know when I am unhappy with myself–and then I am like, ‘Wow, stop eating so many cookies [and her other favorites, cake and pumpkin pie] and get on the treadmill!”

Ouch, the stress is showing — an independent woman forced in to a submissive posture by Clive Davis uber industry. A hard lesson to learn, hopefully she will take it, move forward and make good to hear music again.

She is who she is, that’s why I love her. No airs or phonyness about her. How refreshing to see someone so open, honest and frank.

realman/famous = same person

Feel soo sad about that comment ,’ my standard is low’. Sometimes in life you do end up with jerks because you thought they were into you or that heat of the momment of thing but to actualy come out and say my standard is low is kinda sad.
Poor kid, I hope she’ll end up with someone nice.

i love kelly, she’s always got a smile on her face, never a diva!

Thats what I like about her, she doesnt care what other people think. Even if she knows, she doesnt look good without make up, she’ll still wear no make up because she feels comfortable that way.

She was talking about her BF in 2004, David Hodges. Her last BF was Graham Colton, and they broke up because she was too busy and he was too.

Gotta love her and her pure voice

That sounds insane to hear.

what a fat woman now !! :O

she seems to be a good girl. Fat but Cute.

Aww, she’s cute! :D Not fat but also not thin.
She looks good

I think she is very cool and very real, too bad she is very naive. She is best that AI has turned out.

I love her openness. I admire open celebrities like Kelly Clarkson and Angelina Jolie, who don’t care what others think about them. They say their opinions honestly.

I don’t understand her…I mean she talks about why people would ever try marihjuana, then why the hell have you tried it.

Don’t think u are a good-girl…people shouldn’t even try taking drugs.

Kelly needs to leave somethings to herself, or until her autobiography comes out.
