Kelly Clarkson is happy with her weight and that won’t change in 2018
Kelly Clarkson’s weight has been under the watchful eye of media ever since she first appeared on “American Idol” in 2002. Now that we are approaching 2018, the pop singer won’t likely be making any New Year’s resolutions to lose weight. (Here are four signs you don’t need to lose weight either.)
It’s when she is heavier that she’s happier, Clarkson revealed to Redbook. She says that people think that because she’s gained weight that means something is wrong, the opposite is true for her. “I’m like,’Oh, no! I’m sorry, but that represents happiness in my emotional world.’ For me, when I’m skinny is usually when I’m not doing well.”
But that is not true for everyone
As for how her fans have reacted to her fluctuating weight, you’d think they’d be supportive. But Clarkson has revealed some have body shamed her. And not just for gaining weight, but for losing weight, too.
She has confided in gal pal and country singer Miranda Lambert, who feels the same way. The two celebrities went out for dinner and discussed how they get trolled for their weight. Fans don’t seem to care about their health – “they just care about aesthetics,” Clarkson said. (This Pretty Little Liars star shares how she gained 70 pounds.)
When it comes to happiness, though, “It’s when I’m fat that I’m happy,” says Clarkson.
As self-assured and comfortable in her own skin as Clarkson seems to be, she does admit that the pressure to look and act a certain way can be overwhelming at times. However, she doesn’t let that impact how she leads her life.
The mother of four kids (River Rose 3, Remington, 1, and step-kids Seth, 11, and Savannah, 16) says that you can’t focus on other people’s opinions.
“If you gauge your life on what other people think, you’re going to be in a constant state of panic trying to please everyone.” She says to concentrate on your own life and health and happiness, “whatever that looks like for you, be happy with it,” says the singer, who has a new album, “Meaning of Life.”
