Can Kelly Clarkson live?!
For months, British TV personality Katie Hopkins publicly shamed Clarkson for not being thinner. Though the American Idol winner shrugged off her cruel comments in a magazine interview, Hopkins continued to spread negativity, going so far as to criticize Clarkson's 9-month-old daughter, River Rose Blackstock.
Clarkson received widespread support from celebrities and fans alike, and while she appreciated their sentiments, she a bit was surprised that Hopkins' comments had such resonance. "I love how people think that's new," she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday. "Like, welcome to the past 13 years!"
The "Heartbeat Song" singer said she was considered "the biggest girl" when she competed on Fox's American Idol in 2002. "I wasn't big, but people would call me big," she recalled. Recently, she said, "People are like, 'I'm so sorry that lady in London was so mean to you.' And I'm like, 'Are you serious?' Like, get in line!"
