Kelly Clarkson Just Clarified Comments About Her Weight (Again)

The singer cleared up reports that she once “wanted to kill herself” because of her weight.

“Just to clear something up. I wasn’t ever miserable because I had to be thin. I said I was miserable & as a result I became thin.”

Kelly Clarkson sounded off on Twitter on Tuesday morning, in response to a report that claimed she was once suicidal because of her weight.

The American Idol alum was clarifying a misquote in a recent interview with Attitude: “When I was really skinny, I wanted to kill myself. I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life. But no one cared, because aesthetically you make sense.”

Clarkson also pointed out that no-one suspected that she was severely struggling with her mental health because physically she looked fit (we get you, girl).

Next month will mark 13 years since Kelly Clarkson released her sophomore album Breakaway, which featured gems like “Since U Been Gone” and “Because of You.”

The album was a chart-topping success, and solidified Clarkson’s place as a pop icon.

Yet, while her empowering, angsty tunes littered the charts throughout the mid-’00s, Clarkson had made it clear to Attitude that she was “miserable” at the time.

The then 23-year-old singer felt pressure from industry executives to maintain a thin figure.

“It was a very dark time for me. I thought the only way out was quitting,” she said.

“I like wrecked my knees and my feet because all I would do is put in headphones and run.”

These days the Texas-crooner is no longer obsessed about her weight, and is a vocal advocate of body acceptance.

Not only does the mother of two continue to release bop after bop, but she’s become well-versed in shutting down body-shamers.

Clarkson continued, “I was around some really negative people, and I got out of it because I had a lot of great people there too. It was a case of turning around, facing them and walking toward the light.”

Oh, Kelly, we’ll always root for you!
