Selena Gomez Talked About Not Being the Best Singer & Kelly Clarkson Had Such a Touching Response

Selena Gomez was a guest on The Kelly Clarkson Show this week and Kelly gave such beautiful words of affirmation to her!

The 27-year-old singer opened up about how people don’t consider her to be a great singer.

“I know that people may not think I’m the greatest singer,” Selena said. “But, I just work my ass off. I really love writing and creating and creating melodies and growing. I felt like [Rare] was my chance to say all the things I wanted to say.”

Kelly responded to that statement and assured Selena that she actually is a great singer.

“You said, ‘A lot of people might not think I’m the best singer,’” Kelly said. “The best singer in the world is not the loudest. And it’s not the ‘OMG, you have to sing like Whitney Houston.’ The best singers in the world move you, and that comes from all different sounds and styles. From a singer to a singer, it’s beautiful what you do. And I love your record, and I love singing your music. It means something and it moves people. So, don’t ever negate your gift, because it’s powerful.”

Selena recently revealed what makes her cringe while looking back at her early career.
