Kelly Clarkson: Orange You Glad I'm Back?

Kelly Clarkson: Orange You Glad I'm Back?

Kelly Clarkson rocks out during a live performance at the Orange County Fair on Thurdsay (July 23) in Costa Mesa, Calif.

The 27-year-old American Idol Season 1 winner wore a David Bowie t-shirt and sung her heart out during some fist-pumping, power pop ballads for the enthusiastic crowd at the Pacific Amphitheatre. Kelly has come back with a vengeance after being out of the spotlight for about two years.

As reported earlier, Kelly will be joining Miley Cyrus, Adele and Leona Lewis for the upcoming VH1 Divas Live event in September.

FYI: Kelly is a repeat outfit offender!

15+ pictures inside of Kelly Clarkson rocking out at the Orange County Fair…

What do you expect? her hardcore fans keep telling themselves and her she’s a regular “real woman”…and she just gets fatter…and fatter and ………..

Gee, you really don’t hear that kind of stuff about jennifer hudson, beyonce, queen latifa,

Wow, she needs to loose weight badly. Pop stars aren’t suppose to look like that. Someone needs to push the plate away. It’s not your friend Kelly.

Irish Girl @ 07/24/2009 at 9:58 pm

@Rhonda: Ummm…. news flash… ALL of those women you mentioned have lost weight. Hello…. “Size healthy.” Sound familiar?

pic #7- belly and caboose – side view . yowza

I swear she looks like Meatloaf in a few of those shots.

Irish Girl @ 07/24/2009 at 10:10 pm

@lisa: rotfl … hahaha

i don’t care what she looks like

the album and new single are OFF THE HOOK

i wish i was tehre!

celebrityhater @ 07/24/2009 at 10:28 pm

Fugly, chunky & boring – way to go Kelly Clark-bar!! AHAHAHA!!!!!

Was at that show! Kelly rocked it!!

looking…hefty

Same old posts over and over again. People who love her music don’t care much what she looks like. Her weight is her concern and no one elses. She is one of the best vocalists of her generation. She doesn’t need gimmicks and she doesn’t need to rely on being “hot” to get attention.

I am all for loving ones self but that weight cannot be healthy and I think when you are in the spot light and making great music one must give an image of fantasy and surrealism. We or at least I don’t want reality. I want something to aspire to even if I know certain ideals of perfection are not truly achievable, but at least I can challenge myself to get close to it.

shes always wearing pants! its gross

i love her but she needs to get on a strict diet PRON-TOE!

WEEZERFAzz @ 07/24/2009 at 10:36 pm

i wonder how big her puss-ee is?

WEEZERFAzz @ 07/24/2009 at 10:38 pm

JJ shes been known for wearing the same outfit over and over…during tour.. i heard she never washed

i love heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer!

SPEECHLESS!.. still love her no matter what

She is obese. She should go on the Nicole Richie diet. Get her some coke and Adderall pronto!

OMG you people are soooo cruel!!!

how the hell do you live with those comments. cruel people, she is a human too.

what has this world come to?
honestly

BTW: this ads are fu#@$*! annoying.

underarm fat is not attractive at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@Irish Girl:

they lost weight, but they are still fat!

I saw her in concert not long ago. I didn’t care what she looked like because she sounded HORRIBLE. I felt like someone had screamed in my ear for an hour. Never again.

those jeans are hideous!

aahhhh…sigh

maaaaaaaaaan…wtf

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG KC !!!!

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOGMGMOGMGOGMGGOGMGOMGOMMGOGMGOMGOGMMGOGGMGOMGOMGOGMOMGOGMOMG
I LOVE YOU KC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

preeetttyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.. lover idcare

i think what kelly is doing is stupid.. she once said she GAINS weight on purpose making a statement that she will not change for anyone and will do the opposite every time her label asks her to lose some… but all she is doing is hurting herself.

Geez people! Heaven forbid someone be happy with themselves and their not a size 2!!! She is an AWESOME singer, WHO CARES what size she is!!!

I was there last night. She wailed her face off!! It was an awesome show.

what happen with kelly????!
pic by pic when i see her looks more fat every day!

we are all aware of her fantastic voice no one can deny it.. BUT WE ALSO, CANNOT DENY THAT BODY.

all she needs to do is lose those arms and she’ll be good to go..

i wish she was a model so everyone can just shut the f$%# up already and leave her alone.

one day she will have a banging body. one day. i still have hope

i wonder what she does when she gets horny.. i dont see her having sex with anyone HAHA is that sad?

LEAVE HER ALONEEEEEEE!

Drea Lima Bell @ 07/24/2009 at 11:49 pm

i wish i could save youuuu i wish i could say to you..its gonna be alright…

celebrityhater @ 07/25/2009 at 12:41 am

Moooo Bessie! Have another Big Mac ya fat heifer cow. Thunder Thighs. Miss Piggy. And she’s a mediocre singer, at best. Kelly & her belly need to go have some SlimFast pronto!

kellleeeyy @ 07/25/2009 at 12:43 am

kelly should just give in already. She knows shes not happy with that body no FAT girl is happy with their bodies.. i should know i have to hear their insecurities everyday.

just sayin @ 07/25/2009 at 12:46 am

She got to at least weigh180 lbs. She’s even fatter than Jessica Simpson.

celebrityhater @ 07/25/2009 at 12:46 am

@shane:

*************

Ahahaha!! She looks knocked-up there, due in a few weeks, I’d say……actually, she resembles Janis Joplin in that pic. She should do a bio pic on Janis. If she can get the raspy-bluesie voice and chug Southern Comfort like no tomorrow, then Kelly’s a shoe-in for the role! For God’s sake Kelly-belly, put down that jelly donut and eat some celery you silly sow!

just sayin @ 07/25/2009 at 12:47 am

She wouldn’t be that ugly if she lost some weight. Her face isn’t too bad.

You must be a chubbo too, no?

seriously, let it go with the weight talk. every single new topic on here about kelly all of the comments are “OMG OMG SHE IS SO HUGE” blah blah blah. its not like she keeps gaining. she has been the same size for like a year now, she just wears clothes sometimes that aren’t flattering and clothes sometimes that are.

And its sad to see that the comments on some talentless “stars” are all praising to death, and when you look at the comments on someone who is actually talented, everyone only cares about how she looks on the outside. Last time i checked, being a singer/artist is not about how you look. its about having talent and being able to sing, and kelly has that. kelly does not care about being famous, she is just in it for the music.

LOONEY ALERT!! KELLY’S SO FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTT!!!!

she has gotten so dam fat it’s not even like normal anymore…

She looks like she just walked out of a trailer park.

i just dont understand what kind of people take time out of their day to trash someone they don’t even know, who doesn’t deserve it.

You guys are ridiculous…
How does her weight ACTUALLY affect you personally? It doesn’t! If you don’t like it, then don’t look at pictures of her…geez!

truth is..its probably the claymates or the woods who have absolutely no lives at all..

i dont know what the hell some of you are talking about .. she looks great…aside from the repeated outfit.

females need to read this

YOU DON’T HAVE TO WANT TO HAVE KIDS. IT’S OKAY. LOL
http://www2.macleans.ca/2009/07/24/no-kids-no-grief/

are people still on her weight. you think this chick is listening to you? lol.

Man she looks FAT….wt happened to her??…hormonal problems i guess..

To all the people who complain about her weight, Kelly proves to be successful with that beautiful voice of hers despite how she looks. She is an everyday woman, and by this I mean someone who you won’t think of having an extraordinary talent. Susan Boyle, anyone???

I was also at the concert last night…she was the best!!!! :D

I’m not a fan, but I like her songs. I’m not saying she’s fat, since I don’t consider size 0 (or 2 or 4) normal. 6 is what I’d like to be and 8 is what I am. 10 and 12 are quite normal – HEALTHY! But Kelly’s gotten a bit over 12 now so she should excerise a bit more, just to fit to 10 or 12. And that’d be okay. This is a bit much for an artist.

nikomilinko @ 07/25/2009 at 5:52 am

she needs lose a bit of weight

http://www.pitt-news.blogspot.com

look at the haters @ 07/25/2009 at 8:17 am

I’ve seen pictures of some of you posters. Had to really restrain myself to keep from throwing up. Believe me Kelly isn’t even 1/4 of the size of some of these pigs.

so much anger @ 07/25/2009 at 8:22 am

Some of you should take you own advice and drop a couple of tons. Maybe lay off the Cheetos for awhile.

Go f**k yourselves haters! I think she is still HOT and CUTE. And u are only jealous carrie’s underwood fans

celebrityhater @ 07/25/2009 at 8:57 am

Kelly Clark-bar, put down the fork and back away from the table! And if you’re gonna be out in public, especially in front of thousands of your dweebie little fans, perhaps consider wearing some looser-fitting apparel, such as a mumu type dress, ya COW!!

celebrityhater is a pig @ 07/25/2009 at 9:11 am

Maybe you could lend her one of your pop tents. Or did your extreme fatness break them all?

I like Kelly and her voice. I won’t deny however that she is rather large for a pop star. With her rabid fans and caretakers telling her she is “normal” and it doesn’t matter, she is not going to lose weight anytime soon and that is a shame. It’s not healthy for her personally or professionally. Her current CD is a big dud. Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood she ain’t.

i was at her show last night and i saw her walking out of her tour bus in pjs! everyone went nuts.. anyway she looked tiny… idk what it is with kelly and photographs. she looks different in person.

there are some very angry claymates in this particular post. you dont see those names in other posts in this site only kelly clarkson posts.

i dont think there has ever been so much criticism surrounding kelly clarksons weight.. i think this is the first time in history where a musician had to deal with this overwhelming amount of useless, unnecessary critique.

Someone told me Kristy Alley had a sister.

You know what is cruel, telling Kelly she looks great and cute. No she doesn’t. Yes she is a great singer but she is really fat and she must be at least 180 to 200LBS. She shouldn’t lose weight just to look good or please anyone but to be healthy. Being this overweight is not okay. This is also a bad example and why so many girls have problems because they think that being this fat is okay until life hits them and they realize how detrimental this can be to their health. By the way those jeans do nothing for her, so hideous. I am not telling her to be a size 2 but she should at least go down to a 12 or something, that would be better than this.

she looks gorgeous

i like her better with long hair!! short hair is not working for her.

I WOULD LOOOOOOOVE TO SEE REAL PICTURES OF EVERYONE IN HERE WHO CALLS HER FAT OR UGLY ..

reality bites @ 07/25/2009 at 10:04 am

@Harley:

Have you ever heard of Ann Wilson? Kelly is her successor and I don’t mean in the vocal department. I’ve noticed they are already shooting Kelly’s videos the same way. Lots O’ filter to make her look “tiny.” Tiny in person my ass. Me thinks it’s time to have your prescription looked at.

ahhhhh kelly clarkson looks good.. wtf are you talking about jen. u ugly sh*t!

@dorie: Agreed. Let the critics and the sheeps who only see one warped sense of beauty to keep standing on thier pedestals. As long as she’s healthy and happy with herself who cares. Her continued success speaks louder than her critics.

Celebritywatcher @ 07/25/2009 at 10:23 am

I don’t believe we’ll ever see a skinny Kelly Clarkson and that’s okay.

********************************************************************************

Check out my Michael Jackson prediction @ http://www.celebpsychic.blogspot.com

In these pictures Kelly doesn’t even look that fat in her stomach/waist area. It’s her puffy, round face and fat arms that looks bad. I’m pretty sure that Kelly is just 5’2″/3″ so extra weight makes her look a lot bigger than she is. I think she would look great if she lost 10-15lbs.

Maintenance @ 07/25/2009 at 10:59 am

Kelly’s Coming To Your Town To Rock the Stage !!!
…………. have it reinforced

well, i think it’s good that some celebs actually eats. but that much?!
i mean, she really just gets bigger and bigger

Why is David Bowie’s face sooo wide?

so much hatred and jealousy @ 07/25/2009 at 12:02 pm

Man where did all the fat jealous pigs crawl out of to post here? Most of you people could stand to lose a couple hundred pounds yourselves!

so much hatred and jealousy @ 07/25/2009 at 12:06 pm

@Lenny: Ah yes, your@hehehe: I don’t know…why is your ass soooooo wide?

your all ugly @ 07/25/2009 at 12:10 pm

SO WHERE ARE ALL YOUR PICTURES SO WE CAN SEE JUST HOW PERFECT YOU ARE OR ARE YOU AFRAID SOMEONE WILL CALL YOU A FAT PIG LIKE YOURE CALLING SWEET KELLY?

Stephaniee @ 07/25/2009 at 12:27 pm

O my God ! She’s fat… kelly should be put on a diet that is not beautiful.

She’s a tubbie – and her face isn’t all that either. At least Beyonce has SHAPE to her body (small waist, voluptuous hips and bust, shapely legs) and a gorgeous face to boot!

-the too long dragging jeans just make her look even more stumpy

Wow, Kelly went from chubby-cute to….chunky to….MAJOR FATTY.

Tragic.

She’s holding that microphone like it’s a tasty burrito.

Jeans 38W x 26L @ 07/25/2009 at 1:33 pm

* that’s my guess*

Love Kelly! That girl has guts with the kind of songs she writes.
And I absolutely adore her David Bowie shirt! Bowie is my man! Lol :-)
Haha! Where can I get one?

@oh my:

she already had a number 1 single, it has sold over a million, that is in no way a dud. and of course she isn’t taylor or carrie, they are country.

@Jen:

HUGE exaggeration. She is only 5’3″, she is nowhere near 180.

lol. i just read someone’s comment above that kelly clarkson is a bit too much for an artist. WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT MEAN????!!!!???? lol. like there have never been fat musicians. i know you stated before that last part of your comment that she isn’t fat because you don’t consider size 0-2- whatever normal…that she could stand to lose some weight. i mean you had a good point…then went on to continue that and then relate it to her music/her profession…maybe you meant for health reasons. there are fat musicians out there. hse should just be herself. her voice and her attitude is great. she’s a good egg.

@reality bites:

And how would you know, youve never seen her in person. She actually is tiny in person. And it depends on what she wears most of the time as well. They don’t use filters in her videos. In the I Do Not Hook Up video I read they may have done something, but in the MLWSWY video they did nothing. That was all her wearing clothes that looked good on her.

I seriously dont understand some of these comments. Like saying she looks bigger is one thing, I can understand. But making all these jokes like “HAVE THE STAGE REINFORCED”, “SHES AS BIG AS A WHALE” “SO FAT” etc, she is nowhere near that fat. put her next to jennifer hudson, queen latifah, nikki blondsky, jordin sparks etc and she would look TINY. i hate how nobody ever talks about those people’s weight, who are bigger than Kelly, and bash Kelly to death.

Drop a few Kell @ 07/25/2009 at 6:27 pm

Really form-fitting jeans and skimpy arm-baring tops aren’t for her – at least not until she drops about 20-25 lbs. She CAN do it – she’s been about 20 lbs. lighter before.

I had read that the huge volume of bashing directed at Kelly was the organized efforts of certain other singers fan bases. Based on some of these posts, that may be true. Exactly what do you people hope to accomplish by this? Do you really think that your favorite is so mediocre that the only way to make them look good is to make someone else look bad? I would be humiliated and ashamed to have fans like you.

I think she looks a little less heavier than 3 months back ago….

ashleytfan @ 07/25/2009 at 7:44 pm

omg. how rude are some of these people?!
Kelly has a huge voice and actually looks normal.
Most stars are like way too hot for being reality.

big Kelly booster @ 07/25/2009 at 8:09 pm

Kelly is a huge, massive, giant talent ; )

oh gosh ..claymates..please stand up.

anyway kelly looks fantastic and healthy..if shes happy then why should you?

she looks really fatter than i last saw her!

wow some of you people are really shallow. Kelly’s a singer not a model get over it. I mean you would really have being a stick like Paris Hilton, Nichole Richie, Olsen Twins. Kelly is tiny in person. Grow up some of you people who have no lives and would rather bash people instead.

Scruffy puffy @ 07/26/2009 at 12:48 am

KELLY has MAJOR B.O. ISSUES. SHE IS ALSO A LESBIAN SO SHE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT HER APPEARANCE OR HOW SHE SMELLS. PITY THE FOOLS WHO LISTEN TO HER WAILING!!!!!

WOW FAT FAT FAT
who would hook up with that

@Scruffy puffy:

How would you know if Kelly has major b.o. and your wrong Kelly is all about being clean so I don’t see her having major b.o. and for the last time she’s Not a lesbian. And it sounds like you jealous of how a amazing singer she is.

oh kelly was so cute on idol and she wasnt skinny either shes always been a thick girl but she looked nice on idol she was like estimating a 130 pounds and shes 5’4 so she was at a good weight but shes no longer thick shes fat…her face looks pretty when shes thin…now shes a mess, im not trying to hate but when you are in the spotlight you have to keep your look attractive shes a popstar, she looks like she hasnt showered and she just came out of a whitetrash bar i like kelly bu this look isnt working for her…she stopped caring and let herself go. for the person who said beyonce is fat no shes not fat she has a hourglass figure she a thick girl but her body is nice.

Kelly Clarkson is beautiful. You people are nuts. Some of your comments are disgusting. She is a rocker chick, and feels comfortable in these clothes. Her weight has always gone up and down. She will probably always be this way. If she is happy with the way she looks, why waste your time bashing her. She does not care what shallow ignorant people think. She is a confident, strong, and amazingly talented woman. She is the best singer of the decade, and her voice gives me chills. All you negative people should go get a life.

Her weight is an issue and not because she is a pop star but because being overweight is a serious health issue. If she keeps gaining weight , the excess fat will have a profound effect on her health especially concerning heart diease. It is in her best interest to maintain a fit and healthy body .

really? some are you are REAL pathetic lol

whoa kelly.. well, life is short, eat whatever you want.. well, eat whatever you want but not like a truckload of it so you dont get massive like you are now.. yikes..

Giovylicious @ 07/26/2009 at 7:49 am

OMG she doesn’t need a diet..she is perfect..she has a beautiful voice and this is important..it’s your fault if the stars become too skinny !

Twitter.com/misstizz @ 07/26/2009 at 9:18 am

omg she needs a diet !

I guess it is easier to be mean than nice…negative than positive…that’s okay…Kharma will get you in the end.

wow its sad how theres ppl that are refreshing this site just to see if theres any kelly news so they can flame her with her weight… get over it, shes a SINGER not a model cant u idiots understand? she shappy so let her be that way!

Hmm..its nice to see celebs wearing the same thing again. makes them seem more normal, i guess. =)

how come all people ever comment about kelly clarkson is her size?how about her amazing voice and her talent?thats what people should be talking about.

Yeah, she looks gross but she’s a celeb….you know in a few months from now she’ll be tiny!

Scruffy puffy @ 07/27/2009 at 3:01 am

KELLY = the next ROSIE O’DONNELL, with the B.O. to match!!!!

OMFG!!!

Kelly u are amazing musician but you really need a diet!!!

You look horrible!!!!

Espantosa!! por dios!!!

xoxo

pz

@joe: just b/c she’s short doesn’t mean she’s tiny. then so am i. =.=;;
and yes, she def could be around 180lbs, or at the very least 170. at 5’3″ or 5’4″, yup. and i would actually know because i’m that height. i no where near looked like her, even at my heighest weight of 155lbs. thank god i saw photos as they are and woke up.

Blah blah blah blah blah!
It will never end with you people, will it?!?!?
Get a life! Leave her alone!!!!
After all this time, really!?! She looks the same!!
At this point it’s just become ridiculously annoying……..

Go f**k all off you

BaBy gurl 818 @ 08/06/2009 at 12:51 am

i know kelly looks good with sum meat on her bones like in 2005 but she has 2 much on now
