Given the colorful, upbeat look (complete with little flash points) of the just-released cover art for her new album, All I Ever Wanted, due out March 17, Kelly Clarkson is obviously trying to break away from all the drama that surrounded her ill-fated 2007 disc, My December, and have a little fun.
In fact, American Idol's first viewer-created champ already hinted back on New Year's Day of a return to her more playful pop side when she unveiled the lollipop-loving cover for her first single, "My Life Would Suck Without You."
The song doesn't hit airwaves until Jan. 19, but you can get a small taste of it right now over at Amazon.
So what say you? Have Kelly's fans been waiting for a moment like this, or will they simply walk away?
