Kelly Clarkson Brings Loads of Hope to New Orleans

Kelly Clarkson Brings Loads of Hope to New Orleans

Kelly Clarkson is all smiles at the Tide Loads of Hope truck in New Orleans on Saturday (December 12).

The 27-year-old “Already Gone” singer lent a hand to Loads of Hope, which provides families in need with free laundry services. The organization was founded after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, decimating many families’ homes.

Kelly‘s vintage tee also benefits families affected by disaster – you can pick up your own here!

10+ pictures inside of Kelly Clarkson giving families loads of hope…

    Rants, Thoughts & Merde

  • Jessica


  • Corey

    I think she looks great! She looks like she’s actually lost some weight. She looks like a normal girl, get off it.

  • LOL


  • lexy

    She looks fine and she’s talented. It’s nice to see a REAL woman get noticed for her skills and talent. Check your statistics on Americans and obesity – Kelly’s not fat or overweight!
    It’s hysterical people complain some celebs are too skinny now Kelly is too fat. Some of you are just complainers…

  • Kelly Luckstone

    She is so amazing and hot!

  • a realist

    She looks just fine the way she is .

    The reason so many little girls have body image issues, is because of idiots who think everyone has to be skinny.

  • coco

    Kelly does look like she lost some weight here. Good job – keep going girl!

  • whatever

    Wow some of you people are way beond crass that it’s not funny. And your the ones who is probably fat. Get over it people Kelly is a singer not model. Plus she looks fine and Cory is right it does look like she has actually lost weight and is a normal girl. She doesn’t even look like where you can call her fat or obese, even if so still don’t say it. Some of you all are ignorant and need get a f**king life. No more calling her fat you idiots and apparently y’all have never heard of the old saying “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say it at all”. Just focous on the impartant things here in the pics like Kelly taking the time out her busy schedule and doing some good in the community. We need more celebs like Kelly, everybody can take some notes from KC.

  • jessey

    Guys, just ignor these people with limited vocabularies and, obviously, low intelligence. They’re attention starved. The New York Times had a great article on how the anonymity of the internet brings these people out of the woodwork.

  • hq

    so REAL women have to be fat? i’m naturally skinny and everyone’s always having a go at skinny people but no matter how much i eat i don’t put on weight even tho i want to.

  • ashley

    can people please just recognize her talent and her heart rather than her weight? seriously people, shes giving back and helping others and all you can talk about is how you think shes fat? thats absolutely pathetic

  • Shine

    First of all, she IS fat. Not normal, she is out-of-shape and eating poorly.

    Second, she IS talented as far as singing goes, even though it doesn’t matter these days with everything at the top of the charts being auto-tuned beyond belief.

  • Deepest Purple

    Kelly is the coolest.

  • AutumnM

    Cute shirt

  • jolentini
  • Registernuke

    Why not look at the positive and see the good she is doing in the community by being available and helping others. It’s good to see that stardom has not gone to her head and that she recognizes a need to help families.

  • Corey

    Oh yeah she is such a cow. Seriously people, that picture looks like half the girls I see at my university. I love how people think that they know what is healthy and what isnt. People have diffrent natural weights. like hq said she is naturally skinny. Some girls are naturally larger. You don’t know the way she eats or exercises. People just need to shut up. She’s doing good for people and is a real down to earth girl, and her weight fluctuates okay?

  • whatever

    Our society is sad and pathetic on how we focus on image than talent. You know the other day in my sociology class my instructor said something like around the 1950′s girls who were curvy, thicker were basically not critized for being curvy and it was alright unlike today’s society. Another thing negative Nancy’s Kelly is a big boned girl. Shine FYI Kelly has trainer while she has been on tour, she even mentioned him at one of hers shows and has been seen working at a Seattle hotel and other hotels across the U.S. If you look at Kelly now compared to when she was on VH1 Divas back in September the average bear can tell she has lost some weight. And Shine how do you know she eats poorly unless you stalk her something?

  • lexy

    Again, check your numbers – Kelly is BELOW average and NOT overweight. She looks fine – much better than these women walking around with their ribs and other bones poking out from under their skin.
    @ 15 – if you have a problem with your weight speak with your doctor or a personal trainer.

  • lakers fan in boston

    lmao, her face is pretty fat now
    she looks like a loser like always
    at least she’s doing sometime good

  • boom baba boom

    yep, Kelly’s a load alright

  • Chester

    Flat-chested flat women are a drag.


    She looks more like someones mom than Britney and Christina.

  • think positive

    i like her she’s so down to earth and hasn’t changed since she became famous, always taking time out to do some charity work, never see a picture of her stumbling out of a club drunk and i like that she maintains a healthy weight and always looking happy and lastly she’s a talented singer.

  • musicfan

    LakersfaninBoston and Boom Bada Boom you should be ashamed of your self. Kelly a loser please that’s y’all my friends. Your the ones on here talking crap about people, get a life. Her face doesn’t look that fat please I have seen ppl who have fat faces now, it’s not Kelly has double chins going on, Some people are so vain it’s not funny. Nicole she does not like she could look like someone’s mom more than Britney and Christina.

  • http://justjared deke

    She is a great singer but does need to lose about 30 pounds. If you go back and look at her in 2003 and now, she looked a lot better back then.

  • Matt

    What a huge fattie! Porker!

  • MMA

    A weight watcher emergency!

  • Stone

    Woah. That can’t really be her!

  • musicfan

    Are some of you ppl listening to what you say. Bunch of crazy talk, she’s far from needing weight watchers. Matt she’s not a fattie or porker that’s probably you.

  • musicfan

    @Stone: Are you freaking serious. It looks just like her. BTW some dj interviewed her the other day and that’s she was not overweight. looked somewhat tiny.

  • Chef Coa

    Maybe it’s Swine Flu!

  • Sir Tony Francio

    she’s thick to da bone man! this whole thing gets ugly…

  • BB

    Is it just me, or has she lost weight recently?

  • adam

    Kelly, you’re cute as a button and have a heart of gold to match your golden voice!

  • BitchGotOwned

    Well that’s Kelly Clarkson in those pictures… If we were looking at a fat ugly pig we would be seeing a picture of you

  • K

    @Marta: Well at least you got her name right.

    ..Dumb fxck.
    If that’s “fat” to you, good god. She amazing at singing and that’s what matters. She looks fine and normal, gosh it’s not like it’s the red carpet..

  • rhonda

    ok. have we lost sight of what this article was about. if so let me recap. it’s about kelly helping out a community in need. it’s about
    showing compassion for people. it’s about being unselfish. it’s about love of others.

    i really find it hard to believe that some of you even know what love and compassion is. you have such hate in your words. it’s christmas. try saying something nice for a change. it feels pretty good.

    merry christmas everyone. God bless.

  • musicfan

    @rhonda: Amen Rhonda!!

  • AlexanderMcQueen
