Damn! This just proves that you don't bite off the hand that gave you a record deal!
Sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that Kelly Clarkson's record label is super pissed about the original American Idol shooting off her mouth about the drama surrounding her latest single, Already Gone.
And she might pay for it big time!
The story we're hearing is similar to Kelly's - she did, in fact, request that the song not be released as a single and the label denied this request. However, it was more a of a "do or die" situation for Clarkson, as the label actually told her that if they weren't allowed to release the single, they would be "done" with the album. No more money for videos, no more singles, no more promotion.
They compromised, releasing the single but allowing Kelly only to perform it acoustically (and re-arranged) in concert and on TV - her desire.
Now, because she opened her trap, the label is returning to their original threat and will attempt to kill the album, meaning " no more promo, no more singles, no more money into it." This might signal the end of Kelly Clarkson's relationship with Clive Davis, adding a more "cooperative " (aka naive) pop/rocker to the roster, like current Idol season finalist Alison Irehita.
Poor Kelly. Sucks to be her!
Have another donut, sweetie!
Update: A rep for Kelly's label tells us, "Kelly Clarkson is a valued member of the RCA Records family, we are very proud of her album "All I Ever Wanted" and happily continue to promote the record and support Kelly and her music."
