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."

Kelly Clarkson Speaks on Kanye vma

Dear Kanye,

What happened to you as a child?? Did you not get hugged enough?? Something must have happened to make you this way and I think we’re all just curious as to what would make a grown man go on national television and make a talented artist, let alone teenager, feel like shit. I mean, I’ve seen you do some pretty shitty things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, asshole ways. It’s absolutely fascinating how much I don’t like you. I like everyone. I even like my asshole ex that cheated on me over you…which is pretty odd since I don’t even personally know you. The best part of this evening is that you weren’t even up for THIS award and yet you still have a problem with the outcome. Is winning a moon man that much of a life goal?? You can have mine if it will shut you up. Is it that important, really??

I was actually nominated in the same category that Taylor won and I was excited for her…so why can’t you be?? I’m not even mad at you for being an asshole…I just pity…
