Clarkson hits out at label
Kelly reveals all about her troubled new album talking exclusively to MTV...
Kelly Clarkson's latest album has been finished since January, but will not be released until July 24th. And Kelly seems far from impressed with her record label.
Some gossip sites have been reporting that there has been some tension between the former American Idol and label mogul, Clive Davis on what the album should sound like.
MTV Radio caught up with Kelly earlier in the week and here's what she had to say.
"Everybody always wants me to go in different directions. Obviously they're a record label so they need to sell records. They want the formula writers and the formula producers that do everybody else's stuff.
While I love some of those people... I just don't like working with someone that gives you a song and is like, 'Oh, I wrote this for you.' But you find out that they've given it to every other artist and they turned it down, you know?"
Kelly might've been feeling pressure from her label, but she didn't back down.
"My label literally sent me a Lindsay Lohan track from her last album and wanted me to record it for my new album. And while I like Lindsay Lohan, like I'm cool with her and I think she sings the song well... it's already been on an album. I don't care what pop star it is."
Clarkson was kind of offended by the whole situation. "They were just sending me stuff that was like almost insulting. I'm like, 'You can't even find new songs?"
Kelly continued "You don't want me to write my album but you're sending me hand me downs?' So, I ended up writing the entire thing with the people that I write well with."
You go girl!
