Kelly Clarkson, Your New Song Sucks

clarkson.jpgOh my god. I never thought I would say this. Kelly Clarkson’s new song SUCKS!

What is going on here? I’ve always loved Kelly Clarkson. In all my years of watching of American Idol, I voted exactly one time and it was for Kelly. I even seriously contemplated dying my hair like the cover of her Thankful album, (with the bright red and platinum blonde streaks). Thankfully, I didn’t– but that’s how much I loved her. Not to mention the fact that nothing is more perfect for a run at the gym or singing along with your car windows down than her last album Breakaway.

So what gives? When I was home over Spring Break, I was shocked when my best friend told me she cringed every time she heard a Kelly Clarkson song.

“WHAT do you mean? I loooove her” I replied in astonishment.

To which my best friend pointed out that on 90% of her songs, Kel screams. “Uch whatever” I thought and I pushed her criticism aside. I mean after all this friend of mine doesn’t like Christina Aguilera OR Chris Daughtry’s voices either- what does she know?!

But the other day I realized… she was right.

I happened to catch her video premiere on TRL for “Never Again” and I was so excited. They even had her live via web cam (she is so cute-I just want to hug her!). But as the music started I realized nothing has changed since she’s been gone- its the same screaming-ranting-hair pulling-angry-rocking out-Kelly Clarkson of “Since you Been Gone” and “Behind These Hazel Eyes”. Check out the video for yourself… the album “My December” was slated for a summer release, but rumor has it, head honcho of Sony BMG-Clive Davis is not impressed with Kelly’s new album and wants to scrap part/all of it. Apparently Ms. Clarkson penned the entire album herself. However, the first single is not being received so well (um I can’t imagine why- maybe cause it uh-sucks?) on the charts.

But I am praying for Kel. she announced her plans for a summer arena tour (and last time I saw her in concert I was rockin o-u-t). My fingers are crossed that the rest of the album is a little more promising.

      Lets put on our Ashleeeeeee Simpson albums or better yet Avril. They don't scream, they moan and pant through their songs.

      I couldn't agree with you more. Yelly was good the first time around and great with the second outing. If this new single is an indication of what the third album is like, I'll pass.

      Yeah- This song sucks the hard high one

    4. Adam says:

      What the hell? The song has got REALLY good reviews. And it's freakin' number 8 on Billboard and will probably be up a bit more this week! You have no idea what you're talking about.

    5. Eric says:

      Kelly sang a song called (I think) Up The Mountain on the Idol Gives Back show (with Jeff Beck behind on guitar). It was a near-religeous experience. It only provided a GLARING contrast between her and the mainly lackluster season 6 hopefuls. Kelly is the real deal.

    6. Isabella says:

      Of course she sounds good singing a Patty Griffin tune- Kelly SUCKS as a song writer. Stick with what you know!

    7. john says:

      kelly wrote Behind These Hazel Eyes, Walk Away, Addicted, and Because of you.. Because of you went number 1 in the world charts. How exactly is she a bad songwriter? Not to mention she won the ASCAP songwriting award along with melissa etheridge and mary j blige.

    8. […] okay, so Kelly Clarkson’s new single is nothing like we had hoped it would be, especially in light of how awesome the singles off her last album […]

    9. […] maybe the show isn’t exactly in line with Hippocrates, but if Kelly Clarkson can go from a nobody cocktail waitress from Podunk, Texas to an international superstar […]

      Hey what the title of her new song??? is it the "take me to the candy shop" thingy?
