After presenting at the ESPY Awards, Kelly Clarkson took her pretty dress to Koi. Kelly's new album has caused a lot of controversy lately, but the pop star is still holding her head high and believing in herself, even in spite of her record label's complaints. My December debuted at #2 on the US Billboard Charts and dropped to #3 this week. Still not too shabby if you ask us. In an upcoming issue of Reader's Digest, Kelly talks about the current state of her career. Here's more:
On the RCA Records haters:
“They hated Miss Independent on my first album. It was No. 1 for six weeks, then they got behind it. They hated Breakaway. The song I wrote that they hated the most was Because of You. I fought and fought for it, it became successful and they finally got behind it. I’m not complaining, I’ll just say no until I get my way, and I did.”
On rumors that Clive Davis didn’t like her new album, My December:
“I just want people to hear it, instead of 100-year old executives making decisions on what’s good for pop radio. It’s people my age who listen to it. My gut hasn’t been wrong yet, so why wouldn’t I continue to follow it?”
Sounds like Kelly has plenty of faith in herself and a good head on her shoulders. We just hope that she's able to prove herself again; we wouldn't want this to be the December of her career.
