Kelly Clarkson Defends Spanking Her Kids

Kelly Clarkson is explaining her stance on disciplining her kids.

During a recent interview, the 35-year-old singer defended her position on spanking her kids – River, 3, and Remy, 1.

“I’m not above a spanking, which people aren’t necessarily into,” Kelly told a Rochester-based radio station last week. “And I don’t mean like hitting her hard, I just mean a spanking. My parents spanked me and I did fine in life and I feel fine about it.”

Kelly went on to explain that she understands that not everyone shares the same views as her, but this is how she parents her children.

“So that’s a tricky thing when you’re out in public, ’cause then people are like, you know, they think that’s wrong or something, but I find nothing wrong with a spanking,” Kelly said. “I warn her [River]. I’m like, ‘Hi, I’m gonna spank you on your bottom if you don’t stop right now. Like, this is ridiculous.’”

Kelly Clarkson Reveals Why She Joined 'The Voice' Over 'American Idol' Reboot

Kelly Clarkson is opening up about why she decided to join The Voice!

While promoting the singing competition show at the 2018 Winter TCA Press Tour on Tuesday (January 9), the 35-year-old singer revealed what made her want to join NBC’s show instead of the American Idol reboot heading to ABC.

“I’m going to be real with you. A lot of people reach out to me to be part of singing things because I was in the first one,” Kelly said via Deadline. “I love [The Voice] – it literally does come back to those blind auditions. It means something to me.”

Kelly went on to say that she doesn’t think she fits the “pop star image” and wants to help discover more singers based on their skills.

“That’s what sets this show apart,” Kelly continued. “I get judged on [aesthetics] all the time. I love that this show has chosen” participants “because they’re talented and they deserve it.”
