“Oh my gosh!” she told Refinery29. “Recently — I am a huge Meryl Streep fan, okay? I mean, who isn’t? But she’s one of my favorite humans on the planet. I came up with this idea to release my album and have people I like in the limelight do a little something for it. So I sent her this request, but I don’t know her at all, so I sent it like through her people… channels… I don’t even know how it got to her, but magically it did! And she totally emailed me back!”

“It was the greatest rejection I’ve ever had,” Kelly added. “She couldn’t do it because she’s filming a movie somewhere, but she wrote back the kindest, nicest note, and I was floored because a lot of times people just say, ‘We asked her people and they said she can’t because she’s busy.’ But she literally sent, it said ‘From Meryl.’ You would’ve thought I was opening a letter from Harvard to see if I got accepted! I was freaking out!”

Kelly Clarkson Clarifies Reports That She Contemplated Suicide Over Her Weight

Kelly Clarkson is clearing up reports that she said she was suicidal when she was “really skinny.”

Originally, the 35-year-old entertainer was reported to have said, “When I was really skinny, I wanted to kill myself. I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life. But no one cared, because aesthetically you make sense.”

Kelly then took to Twitter today to say, “Just to clear something up. I wasn’t ever miserable because I had to be thin. I said I was miserable & as a result I became thin.”

And then Kelly replied to a report saying she was suicidal over her weight. “NOT TRUE I’ve never contemplated suicide because of my weight.I said people had no idea I was unhappy oddly enough because I appeared healthy,” she added.

Kelly Clarkson Was Suicidal When She Was 'Really Skinny'

UPDATE: Kelly is clarifying these quotes, and you can read her update here.

Kelly Clarkson says she wanted to kill herself at her lowest weight years ago.

The 35-year-old superstar recently revealed was miserable following the 2004 release of her album Breakaway and was under immense pressure to lose weight.

“When I was really skinny, I wanted to kill myself. I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life. But no one cared, because aesthetically you make sense,” Kelly told Attitude magazine.

She added, “It was a very dark time for me. I thought the only way out was quitting. I like wrecked my knees and my feet because all I would do is put in headphones and run. I was at the gym all the time.”

Kelly says her turning point came during the release of My December.

“There’s a song on My December called ‘Sober.’ There’s this line – ‘picked the weeds but kept the flowers’—and I just live my life by that, because you are who you surround yourself with. I was around some really negative people, and I got out of it because I had a lot of great people there, too. It was a case of turning around, facing them and walking toward the light,” Kelly explained.
