Kelly Clarkson on Clive Davis: What a Bully!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Clive Davis is bisexual. The uber producer makes this admission in his new memoir, "The Soundtrack of My Life."

But that revelation isn't the focus of a new Kelly Clarkson rant, in which the singer reacts to passages in the book with anger and authority.

"Clive Davis is… spreading false information about me and my music," Clarkson wrote in a post on her WhoSay blog. "I refuse to be bullied and I just have to clear up his memory lapses and misinformation for myself and for my fans. It feels like a violation. Growing up is awesome because you learn you don't have to cower to anyone - even Clive Davis."

Among the issues Clarkson takes with Davis:

  • His lie that he burst into "hysterical sobbing" upon demanding Since You Been Gone must be included on her album."
  • Davis telling Clarkson she was a "shit-y" writer after she came up with "Because of You." Writes Kelly: This was devastating coming from a man who I, as a young girl, considered a musical hero and was so honored to work with. But I continued to fight for the song and the label relented. And it became a worldwide hit. He didn't include that in the book.
  • How Davis "belittled" Kelly in front of his company over the CD "My December" and tried to "sabotage" the project."

"I love my job," Clarkson concludes. "I love my music. I love my fans. I love my label and all of my professional relationships… now. And I am grateful for Clive for teaching me to know the difference."
