Kelly Clarkson Gives Selena Gomez a Pep Talk About Singing

Selena Gomez Talks About People Who Dislike Her Singing, and Kelly Clarkson Hypes Her Up

Selena Gomez came to the right place for a pep talk. The "Rare" singer stopped by The Kelly Clarkson Show for Monday's episode to chat about her new music, and she got vulnerable talking about hurtful criticism. "I know people may not think I'm the greatest singer, but I just work my ass off," she said.

Clarkson responded with some valuable words of wisdom. "You said, 'Oh I know people might not think I'm the best singer,'" the host said. "The best singer in the world . . . is not the loudest. And it's not the, 'OMG, you have to sing like Whitney Houston.' The best singers in the world move you — and that comes from all different sounds and styles. From a singer to a singer, it's beautiful what you do. And I love your record . . . I love singing your music. It means something and it moves people. So don't ever negate your gift — because it's powerful."
