Kelly Clarkson worries about fans
Kelly Clarkson says she has always been criticised for her weight.
The 32-year-old singer, who has eight-month-old daughter River Rose with husband Brandon Blackstock, admits she sometimes gets hurt by negative comments about her body but claims she is more worried about how her fans react to suggestions she is too big.
The 'Heartbeat Song' hitmaker explained: "Well it hurts your feelings more if it's someone else that you like. I think what hurts my feelings for people is that I'll have a meet and greet after the show and a girl that's bigger than me will be in the meet and greet and be like, 'Wow, if they think you're big I must be so fat to them.' And you're just who you are. We are who we are. Whatever size. And it doesn't mean that you're gonna be that way forever."
But Kelly insists she has developed a thick skin and used to the jabs.
She told the 'Ellen DeGeneres Show': "I love that people think [the topic] is new. Like, welcome to the past 13 years. I was the biggest girl on ['American Idol'] too. I wasn't big, but people would call me big. I kind of always got that."
The singer also believes her weight will continue to fluctuate in the future.
She said: "I yo-yo. Sometimes I'm more fit and I get into kickboxing and hardcore, and then sometimes I don't and go, 'Nope, I'd rather have wine!' "
