“I’m going to blame Seth Rogen,” he said, before revealing that he and the crew actually had a list of curses that Steve could shout during the scene. Kelly‘s name was a “clean” word.

Kelly laughed about the list they had: “I love that I made it between ‘burger panties’ and ‘throbbing monkey-tail’. It doesn’t matter what I do in my life, no one remembers me for anything other than that.”

Kelly Clarkson Addresses the Discussion Surrounding Adele's Weight Loss

During the conversation, she was asked about the recent discussion around Adele and her weight loss, and how that affected her.

“I’ve had this discussion with many females in the industry. I felt more pressure from people actually when I was thin, when I was really thin and not super healthy because I just was worn out, just working so hard and not keeping healthy habits. But I felt more pressure. It was more of magazines shoved in front of you and, ‘This is what you’re competing with and we’ve got to compete with it.’ I can’t compete with that. That’s not even my image. That’s not who I am. That’s who they are. We’re all different and it’s okay. I fought more when I was thinner than I do now, because now I just walk in and I just look at them like, ‘I dare you to say something. I’m happy in my life. I’ll work on me in my time!’ she explained.

“Even like you said, with Adele, I saw pictures of her too. I met Adele a long time ago and that girl is like a goddess. I don’t care what kind of weight she’s holding down; you walk in the room and she’s like a force, just physically captivating. If someone wanted to do it for themselves and for their health but that doesn’t change how many times I listened to her record,” she went on to say.

“Honestly, at my heaviest point, I was hired to be on The Voice. I got on the number one television show at my heaviest point, because it was right after I had kids and it was like they didn’t care. Paul hired me from NBC because he loved my personality, he loved that I connect with people and I’m really raw and real. It had nothing to do with my sex appeal or my look aesthetically. It had to do with me as a person. I think it’s really up to artists to force people to have that mentality.”

She went on to explain further about the magazines that were pushed in front of her face.

“Naked! There would be a chick naked on the cover. I’m not joking, literally naked. I was like, ‘unless I’m doing an SNL skit and this is a comedy thing, I’m never going to pull it off.!’ Even in my thinnest, most fit moment, it’s just not my personality to be naked on the front of a magazine. Mind you, my husband will tell you, I am totally okay with nudity. I think it is a beautiful thing. I think all of our bodies, whether you’re male or female, we were very beautiful beings.”
