Kelly Cancels Her Tour

Kelly Clarkson is obviously going through a lot lately - she had a very public feud with Clive Davis about writing her own songs on My December, and she fired her manager just a few days ago. The controversy continued today when Kelly announced on her website that she's canceling the tour she had planned for the summer. We're not exactly sure what's going on with Kelly, but this doesn't bode very well for her upcoming album. Something fishy is going on - anyone have any theories? We hope she's okay but we're starting to feel like there is a breakdown going on (minus the shaved head).

I feel for her. Clive Davis has been incredibly unprofessional. Is senility kicking in or is he just an a$$hole? There are many artists in her positions. There are better ways to handle things.

i have never bought a kelly album but i will be this time. i loved what i heard off the last one & i want to support her for standing up for what she believes in. she is so very talented. and i know most do, but i just don't care what she looks like. she could look like a goat wearing a sequined sack for all i care as long as she puts out good music. i wish her all the best & i hope she comes out on top. ps- right on, jillness!

Rather than re-write and re-word it, I'm just going to agree with what Jillness said. She's dead on. Kelly is an amazing singer and I really liked her last album. I do not watch idol but just from hearing the various winners/losers, I'd have to say Kelly and Carrie Underwood are by far the most talented. I'd really like to see them both do well because I think they deserve it. Good luck to Kelly. I'll be buying her album the day it comes out in support of her.

I read that it was due to lack of ticket sales along with her no longer having representation. This is quite a bummer and I hope that it doesn't get her down. I'll still buy her new album!

I'll be buying this CD just as Jillness said. I am a big fan of Kelly and I think she's getting a bad deal from her recording label. I think they are trying to set her up to fail because that somehow will prove them right in their dispute with Kelly. I've got news for you RCA, demoralizing one of your artists in the public realm doesn't say anything bad about the artist but it certainly shows you up for the greedy scum you are! from what I've heard of the album, I'm liking it. its different from everything else which is refreshing.

What a mess. I wish her the best of luck because she had some good songs at one point and I really don't understand all of the backlash-but then again, I haven't heard the album yet either. . .

No matter what her cd sounds like, I am buying it first week! I am SO TIRED of the same old over-produced, generic, boring music that is shoved down people's throats on mainstream radio. I admire artists like Clarkson and Aguilera that take chances and do something different. Predictibility is boring to me, exploring new ground is not. (I was really surprised by Christina's cd, my first from her. Love it!) No matter what the cd sounds like, the fact that Kelly took chances will make her grow. Gotta support that! As a consumer, your greatest power is your money. Where you spend it speaks directly to the top executives. They will follow your cash's lead.

Kelly is too grounded for a breakdown. I think theres just a lot of controversy at the label she's at. She needs to switch to another one

I dont usually say things too negative, but she could have come up with a better excuse. I dont think stars realize how many fans they have or that they look forward to seeing their favorite artist perform. Lame Kelly! Lame..Lame..LaMe

Aw, I genuinely like Kelly and I really want to see her succeed in her career. Although, the "y'all" in her statement is quite Britney. :D

i suspect that one of the problems of not coming up through the ranks, so to speak, is that you aren't used to the butt kissing, dues paying, bs that goes on not just in the recording industry but any industry. there are certain ways of doing things that are like a culture, tribal knowledge if you will, that everyone who has put their time in knows and follows. kelly isn't playing by the rules, i don't even think she knows there are rules. she is unhappy with the way things are going so she pulled the plug. we'll see where this gets her.

I read that she's still doing Live Earth. I'm starting to like her again. I bought her first two cds and I'm going to buy the latest one. :)

Not sure this necessarily has to be "something fishy" -- could just be that, in fact, the timing wasn't right and it was too much too soon with all the other drama going on. I look forward to Kelly's rescheduled tour whenever it may be, and I can't wait for the new album.
Good for her for standing up for what she wants! American Idol wanted her to be a total poptart. They never thought she may have her own ideas! She may just be a bit overwhelmed, she has been working non-stop since AI1. She needs to just lay back in Burleson for a while, so that she can remember what it's like to be a real Texan.

That's too bad, she's such a talented girl! It sucks that her own label is so into trashing her. She seems like such a humble normal girl, I really hope things get straightened out for her soon!

All of the recent management/record label problems must be hard for anyone. It's seems like a lot to take all at once. I think perhaps she is doing what is best for her and that is taking stock of what she has and what she needs. A tour would probably only cause more stress in what seems to be a horrid place for her right now. I think that a canceled tour is better than a Kelly out at the clubs sans panties and canceling half the shows or showing up drunk like some other celebrities do. To be upfront about problems is better. I wish her well and applaud that she is trying to do things her way and not kowtow to execs with only money on their minds.

I think that clive had something to do with it. Remember she won this deal so creative control is far les than an artist who was signed without a television show. I think she needs to breakaway from the label and move on to another label. I think that American Idol has her on a strict 10 year 5 album contract. So far she has had 3 albums I don't know if they count the idol cds as albums for the winners. I wish her well. She deserves better
