Kelly Clarkson Slams U.K. Publication for Misleading Cover, Quotes

by at . Comments

No one on the planet should be as famous as me.

Doesn't sound like something Kelly Clarkson would say, does it? Exactly, the American Idol champion Tweeted today.

Clarkson has gone off on the U.K. Mirror's Sunday Celebs edition for making her sound obnoxious on its latest cover, writing of the above quote and image, along with implications that she suffered through an eating disorder:

"Just to clear up the absolutely wrong so called quotes from me, I have never had anorexia nor did I ever say 'no one should be as famous as me.'"

Kelly went on to explain what actually went down:

"I said in the interview, when asked about fame, that I have no desire to be as famous as Britney or Madonna. I said that kind of fame was too much for any person and that I have experienced a portion of what they deal with and that I didn't handle that well and I'm happy where I'm at in my career."

Sounds reasonable to us. And to fellow Idol winner Jordin Sparks, who Tweeted back at Clarkson: "tell 'em girl!"

We concur.
