Kelly Clarkson's endorsement of GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul has turned off some longtime fans, but it may have gained her even more new ones.
Sara Spafford Freeman, a 33-year-old communications consultant, has been a Kelly Clarkson fan since the singers "American Idol" days. But after she saw Clarksons Twitter endorsement of Paul, Spafford Freeman decided she could no longer endorse Clarkson.
I used to like Kelly Clarkson. But I can't like anyone who is either ignorant enough or arrogant enough to endorse a candidate like Ron Paul, Spafford Freeman told Fox411 on Thursday from her home in Minnesota. I have listened to Since You've Been Gone for the last time.
However, judging from sales of Clarksons most recent album Stronger since she made her Paul endorsement, the singer has attracted a lot of positive interest as well.
In the past 24 hours, Clarksons record is up 192 percent on Amazon.com, according the the entertainment site Gossipcop.com, shooting from #41 to #14.
"I love Ron Paul, Clarkson tweeted Wednesday night.. I liked him a lot during the last Republican nomination and no one gave him a chance. If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he's got my vote. Too bad he probably won't."
Many of Clarksons Twitter followers immediately demanded that she retract her statement, but so far shes refused.
Among Clarksons critics on Twitter was user @kat_george, who tweeted:
-- Ew just found out Kelly Clarkson luvs Ron Paul lyk, 4eva and stuff. Soz Kelly, not your fan anymore.
And there was this one from @waflanagan:
-- Oh Jebus Kelly Clarkson is a Ron Paul fan. My love for you has taken a severe hit, Kelly...

Seems like the appropriate result.
Besides, have you seen her?
I'm talking Rosie O'Donut, here...
Entertainment Industry is a liberals haven.
Her album jumping from 41 to 14 will make those liberal executives pretty happy.
IMO, no matter who she supports, her music still sucks.
And she can stand to lose some weight.
I thought she had a brain, whoops wrong. By By stupid choice.
Most of her fans,like High Pitched Eric along with Eric the midget probably do not care who Kelly Clarkson endorses.
bad girl, straying from the progressive plantation...
WTF is Kelly Clarkson
Miss Know it All doesn’t.
By far the hottest girl the Paultards ever had!
Your comments are shallow and give freepers a bad name. I’m sure you’re both perfect and have no personal struggles at all. Happy New Year to you both.
Your music sucks.
I care as much about this entertainer’s opinion as I do Chuck Norris’, the Dixie Chicks or any other “performer.” Their views have no value and should be ignored - the lot of them!
Is that supposed to be singing?
How old are you?
My question as well. I thought Kellly Clarkson may have been the woman that Phil Spector murdered.
American? Looks like she’s planning on entering a Buddha look alike contest.
Yeah Kelly, that fan on your hair is going to fool everyone.
The entertainment industry has so jumped the shark with me.
“How old are you?”
How old is dirt?
