# 2

IF………. I wasn’t obese.

# 3

Good thing that tank top is laced on the side. She can let it out and loosen it when she gets bigger.

# 4

Is that you little miss piggy?

# 5

aw man, i can’t believe i missed that :( glad u guys had fun!

# 6

Damn, She can hardly move on stage. She can’t even jump she’s so large. Go on a diet Kelly, before you get any larger.

# 7

I love how he sings and his style is fantastic !!!!!!!

# 8

what are you talking about people? that was AWESOME!!! she is great and she can sing any kind of music! you don’t have to dance when you sing like that Kelly rocks!

# 9

She sounds great – I love the original version of that song, but she sounds amazing doing it too.

god yall are so fcking mean, get a life, she’s beautiful the way she is and her voice is amazing, great artist you go kelly

“If” I wasn’t so big, “If: I wasn’t 250 lbs, “If” I wasn’t putting the stage under a huge strain, I would be a star.

she isn’t even fat yall. she is extremely talented, and way more talented than those stick thin celebrities out there now. and she is living her dream while you people sit on the computer and throw insults at her.


what an exaggeration.

Ugh. Thanks for wrecking one of my favorite songs. Not only do all of your songs sound the same but your songs suck ass period. Don’t attempt to wreck other people’s good songs by attempting to make them “your own”. You suck Kelly. Go back to wherever it is you came from and bury yourself there.
Oh. And before I forget. Lay of the Ding-Dongs, Ho-Hos or whatever else it is you’re apparently scarfing down your face.
Love and kisses!

Wanted to like it…just not that good. Better live perhaps?

@Lisa: what happened to people NOT judging the way people look in the public eye. get a grip and stop judging people. deal with your own life.

too bad she IS a star, she is not anywhere near 250 lbs. she probably isnt even medically “overweight”. are you saying this to make you feel better about yourself? theres plenty of people bigger than her (queen latifah, jordin sparks)

seriously, its sad how judgemental and shallow people have become. if people were like this in the past, aretha franklin would have never been discovered.

So what if she's a big girl? @ 07/15/2009 at 2:59 pm

She looks like a very normal, approachable person. I love that she’s an average jo like us. Her voice is always fantastic which is way more interesting and important than how she looks…. It’s refreshing to see a star who isn’t an anorexic and still very down to earth.

and her songs that “suck ass” sell millions and millions, winning plenty of awards, including grammys.

Who ate Kelly Clarkson? Wow she looks AWFUL! She’s so overweight that she’s out of breath from TRYING to jump around! It literally is affecting her singing! She used to bounce around the stage like crazy and sound tolerable! Now she’s hideous on the eyes AND the ears!


1. how do you know she is as a fact, overweight? You dont.
2. it isnt affecting her singing. when she was thin, it was because she was overworking herself and she ended up even getting walking pnemonia and straining her voice. her voice was extremely strained in 2005 on tour and in 2007, and now its in amazing shape.

@So what if she’s a big girl?: Average Joe like us?! WHAT exactly are you smoking and WHERE can I get some? Do you have a big record deal with millions of dollars to spend on anything you want, anytime you want? Right. Neither do I. Even if she can’t sing worth ****, she’s still not “average” like us.

I don’t think that Kelly is all that big (not by normal standards) It’s too bad that she is in the entertainment business. I’m sure you all she bigger people in your everyday life and you say nothing about them-it’s probably because you are just as big as they are. I just think that people are pretty much miserable with there own lives and just want to try and find faults with other people to make themselves feel better. What a shame

backseatsurfer9 @ 07/15/2009 at 3:10 pm

@Joe: That’s because, apparently, people have no taste and forget what REAL music sounds like. The only reason she’s selling anything at all is because she was on American Idol which, for the record, has not produced a single decent recording artist as of yet. They’re all mediocre. They all sound the same. They all suck ass; Kelly included. End of story.

backseatsurfer9 @ 07/15/2009 at 3:13 pm

@Khristi: Can’t say that I am a big person. I also can’t say I am miserable with my life. I still think she’s overweight and shouldn’t attempt to jump around stage when it’s obviously affecting her singing. Overweight + jumping x out of breath = ****** singing. And that’s even if she had a good voice to begin with. Which she doesn’t. My ass makes better sounds than that which comes from her mouth. :D


she obviously can sing, as she is constantly praised for her voice, she doesn’t rely on looks, and she won a singing competition.
