kelly clarkson lashes at Swift

Kelly Clarkson posted a blog entry on Thursday (Feb. 4) in response to Big Machine Records CEO Scott Borchetta, who defended his artist Taylor Swift's off-key performance at Sunday's Grammy Awards by taking a swipe at singers who never miss a note.

"This is not 'American Idol,'" Borchetta said, in response to mounting criticism over Swift's less-than-stellar vocals during her duet with Stevie Nicks. "This is not a competition of getting up and seeing who can sing the highest note. This is about a true artist and writer and communicator. It's not about that technically perfect performance."


Needless to say, the original "American Idol" winner-turned-pop  went on the defensive quickly. "I understand defending your artist obviously because I have done the same in the past for artists I like, including Taylor, so you might see why its upsetting to read you attacking 'American Idol' for producing simply vocalists that hit 'the high notes,'" Clarkson wrote. "Thank you for that 'Captain Obvious' sense of humor because you know what, we not only hit the high notes, you forgot to mention we generally hit the 'right' notes as well."

"Every artist has a bad performance or two and that is understandable, but throwing blame will not make the situation at hand any better," the  singer continued. "I have been criticized left and right for having shaky performances before (and they were shaky) and what my manager or label executives say to me and the public is 'I'll kick butt next time' or 'every performance isn't going to be perfect' ...I bring this up because you should take a lesson from these people and instead of lashing out at other artists (that in your 'humble' opinion lack true artistry), you should simply take a breath and realize that sometimes things won't go according to plan or work out and that's okay."

Clarkson sarcastically signed off on the note to Borchetta as, "One of those contestants from American Idol who only made it because of her high notes."

Health: Product Alert - EBO Beard Butter

BVM: Care to introduce yourself to our readers?

EBO: Hello my name is Edward Oliver Jr but everyone calls me Ed..I created #EBOBeardButter in 2014.. What inspired me is that I've been growing my beard since 2012 and it grows but it didn't have that feel or that look I wanted.. it was rough and hard to manage..So I searched the Internet for products and found some but they didn't cater to my type of hair to be honest.. It was more for people with straight hair which my hair isn't..so I talked to my mom about helping me make my own stuff because she makes organic products..So about May 2014 I started experimenting and came up with something to use for myself but it wasn't until fall 2014 that I decided to sell it...

BVM: What exactly is in EBO Beard Butter?

EBO: Well the basis of it is shea butter coconut oil and some essential oils I use and I add a few other good things in it that I cant give away but its all natural..no chemicals or preservatives in its c…
