Now this gesture is so gorgeous.
"You know what's so funny? She just sent me flowers," The Kelly Clarkson Show host exclusively told E! News. "She's so nice. She did. She was like, 'Every time I release something'—'cause she just did 1989. I got that really cute cardigan, too."
As fans know all too well, Kelly suggested in a 2019 tweet that Taylor should re-record her music after Scooter Braun's company Ithaca Holdings LLC acquired her former label Big Machine Label Group and obtained the rights to the masters for her first six studio albums (her music catalog was subsequently sold to Shamrock in 2020). And that's exactly what the "Wildest Dreams" artist did.
Still, the "Breakaway" singer maintains that Taylor likely would have come up with this solution without her recommendation.
"I love how kind she is though," Kelly continued. "She's a very smart businesswoman. So, she would have thought of that. But it just sucks when you see artists that you admire and you respect really wanting something and it's special to them. You know if they're going to find a loophole, you find a loophole. And she did it and literally is, like, the best-selling artist I feel like of all-time now."
The American Idol alum also praised Swifties for supporting Taylor through this process.
"It's so cool to see a fanbase really get behind her in that too because it's important," she added. "She's known for being such an incredible songwriter and the soundtrack to a lot of people's lives and that's her life. So, you should have the option of owning that."
Now, Kelly is the one saying welcome to New York as her eponymous daytime talk show has officially moved to the Big Apple. And since u been gone, she's also launched her own SiriusXM channel Kelly Clarkson Connection.
"We called it Kelly Clarkson Connection because there is literally no connection with all the music I'm playing except that I like it," Kelly told E! at SiriusXM's Major Next Generation event. "I've always wanted since I was a kid—I didn't understand why Whitney Houston and Nirvana couldn't be played on the same channel. Like, I like both, so why can't we do that?"
"We're going to be playing that, too," she said. "'Dear Mama,' what? It's a great song."
