  • Fox’s Chris Wallace: Kelly Clarkson ‘Could Stay Off the Deep Dish Pizza

    Chris Wallace should probably stick to grilling Republican presidential candidates. Somehow, during a radio interview with conservative host Mike Gallagher on Friday, the Fox News Sunday host got pulled into a discussion about former American Idol star Kelly Clarkson’s weight. The two men were discussing Little Caesars’ bacon-wrapped crust pizza when Gallagher brought up “fat shaming.” “Have you seen Kelly Clarkson? You know the singer, Kelly Clarkson?” Gallagher asked Wallace. “Holy cow, did she blow up.” At first, it seemed that Wallace was going to avoid joining in on this bizarre line of questioning, saying he thinks Clarkson has “got...

    If you haven't seen it yet, you should know about a powerful music video that's become a sensation both because of its emotional impact and its creator--a young cancer patient at Seattle Children's. The video is set to Kelly Clarkson's hit song "Stronger" and pairs the lyrics with some unexpected images. The video was created by 22-year-old Chris Rumble, and is part of a new creative arts program at Seattle Children's for patients with cancer.

    Billboard magazine debunks the Kelly Clarkson/Ron Paul sales bump. The magazine asserts that Kelly’s endorsement of the controversial republican presidential candidate did little to help the sales of her “Stronger” album, and in fact, her sales dropped when compared with the previous week:In the week that ended on Sunday, Jan. 1, 2012, “Stronger” sold 40% fewer copies than it did the previous week (25,000, as opposed to 41,000 in the week before Christmas). And while it moved from No. 39 to No. 17 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, its upward momentum this week was caused by it having a...

    Via Kelly Clarkson:I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights. I like Ron Paul because he believes in less government and letting the people (all of us) make the decisions and mold our country. That is all. Out of all of the Republican nominees, he’s my favorite. . . Hmmm. You can meet girls like Kelly Clarkson at Ron Paul events?

    Just read on another thread where "American Idol" winner and recording artist, Kelly Clarkson has endorsed Ron Paul (spiking her CD sales 442%). He's also liked by Barry Manilow, White Supremacists, anti-Semites, the "Occupy" protesters, the anti-war crowd, and tons of other Liberals. So, I'm thinking.... Let Ron Paul run as a Third Party candidate. He is more like Dennish Kucinich than he is Rick Santorum. There are a lot of ultra-Liberals who are very disappointed with their "Hope and Change" President, but they'd never vote for a Republican. That would give them an outlet for a "protest vote" against...

    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 singer’s "American Idol" days. But after she saw Clarkson’s 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...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Kelly Clarkson, who rails against a former flame in her new song "Never Again," says she's never been in love. "I love my friends and family," the Grammy-winning singer and original "American Idol" tells Elle magazine in its July issue. "But I have never said the words 'I love you' to anyone in a romantic relationship. Ever." Clarkson, 25, doesn't take romance lightly. "I am very old-school, conservative in my thinking when it comes to relationships," she says. "Love is something you work at. It doesn't come easily. There are going to be bad days. You...

    Pop queen for one day, and already Kelly Clarkson is stepping into controversy. Ms. Clarkson, 20, the former comedy-club waitress who triumphed on "American Idol" Wednesday night, has snagged a record contract, a deal with Creative Artists Agency, concert bookings and a single, which is due to arrive on Sept. 17. But today, in an interview with The New York Times, she said she wanted to withdraw from one obligation her new management company, 19 Management, has lined up for her: a performance of the national anthem at a Sept. 11 commemoration at Lincoln Memorial in Washington.
