Kelly Clarkson Says Celebs Were Mean to Her During 'American Idol,' Except This One Star

Kelly Clarkson is opening up about how celebrities were mean to her during her days on American Idol.

While interviewing Jennifer Love Hewitt on the latest episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the singer revealed how she was one of the only people that was nice to her back in the day.

Kelly told Jennifer how they met at a red carpet event during the Top 3 week on her season of American Idol.

“You probably don’t remember this, but it stuck with me [for] so long… almost 20 years now,” Kelly said. “It was at some kind of MTV Awards, VMAs or something, I don’t know what it was but you ran up to me. It was right in the final three of Idol, everything was happening in a whirlwind and people were really mean to us because we’re from a talent show and it was the first season.”

“Everyone was so rude to us, like on the carpet, at the show… it was a horrible experience. You came up to me, ran up to me out of nowhere and were like ‘Oh my gosh, I’m really rooting for you,’” Kelly continued. “You told me, ‘Please, keep the ones you love so close. It’ll be a few people in your life unfortunately but this business can be really hard. And just remember to keep those people that really love you.’ You just gave me this advice that was really kind at such an unkind time for me personally. So thank you so much, it meant the world to me.”

The Kelly Clarkson Show was just given some amazing news ahead of the holidays.
