Ouch! Does Kelly Clarkson Despise Her Label?

| Filed under: AnglophiliaKelly ClarksonBusiness Blitz

OMG!

Kelly Clarkson better watch her mouth!

In the middle of her concert at the Manchester Apollo the other night, the American Idol alum declared, "I love soulful music and i don't always get to record it because i work with a bunch of suits."

Fingers crossed for Kelly that none of those "suits" were in the audience!

She followed up her declaration by quietly singing "Two-more-records!" to the crowd.

The suits could make those last two records a living hell if you're not careful, Kel!

    I hate it when artists don't get their artistic freedom.

    What she said isn't that bad. She's not the first to openly speak out against their record label either. I admire her guts.



  3. 3

    Her fans love her for being outspoken. She keeps getting hit singles. She can sing better than anybody you like. I think she's fine…I think you have no fucking clue…



  4. 4

    Erm, anyone with half a brain could tell she hated her record label way before this (the whole dispute over My December..?!).

    Haha that's awesome. She's totally right, it sucks that "the suits" keep her from making great music by forcing more radio friendly songs on her. If she had a smaller more alternative label she probably wouldn't have that kind of problems!

    perez leave kelly alone and shut the fuck up she deserve a better label anyways! kelly is so talented and can't do everything because of them

    She has the right to protest when her label doesn't allow her to do more real music. Some labels only care about money and not about quality.

    Well, you pretty much know from the start that a record label owns you and they only want to make money….if you don't want to be controlled go to an indie label or produce yourself…YOU won't make as much money but REAL artists do it all of the time.

    She can protest all she wants. Prince did, and stopped having hits on the charts. So much for freedom.

    everyone in the music business knows that Perez has been on Clive Davis's payroll since the My December era. Before My December Perez was in love with KC. Appears he loves money more. :P

    I can't wait till she leaves though asses at RCliveA. She deserves better and I'm sure there are some big labels out there, who will let her do what she wants to do and would love to have her once her contract is up.



  12. 12

    Why does she constantly act like she is so bothered by every aspect of the music business? She wasn't sold into slavery, she signed a contract for the opportunity to do what she loves. STFU already, and eat some fruit. Pretty soon she won't have to worry about the pesky suits, or getting a paycheck. She'll be free to be creative at the local bar.

    Re: billyk – What a douce?

    not that big of a deal. it's the truth and no secret. she's a really good songwriter and has proven it by writing a bunch of her hits along with numerous songs that will probably never be on an album that puts those hits to shame. she's proven herself over and over again and deserves respect from her label. if they dont give it to her, why should she give it to them?



  15. 15

    She has the right to say whatever she wants it's a free country and record label doesn't give two shits about she thinks..real nice.

    who cares if they hear her!?



  17. 17

    She said that in December when she was in Fresno, Ca. I support her no matter what.

    Team KBC

    Wow doesn't matter if she gets hit singles or not thats a no no in this town. Who will sign her after that flack she is still getting flack for the last single and calling out her label for wanting to release the song. Well hope she's ready for retirement Hwood is pretty dynamic and it doesn't take much to get blackballed by the industry.



  19. 19

    I Love her



  20. 20

    YAY Kelly! I love that she speaks her mind! She will be fine with or without the label…the stuff the shared on the pre-shows of her last tour make me extremely anxious for her to finally be done with the major label and the crap they keep trying to force her to record. I don't care if I gotta take my ass to freakin' Burleson to listen to the post-RCA stuff. It will be damn worth it!



  21. 21

    ummmm, not a big deal. she said something similar at her concert in fresno too. i doubt that remark will make any difference for her at all.



  22. 22

    Wow..um stardom gone to her head much?



  23. 23

    What a stupid bitch. Her career is down the tubes. She's trying to keep her name out ther because everyone's forgotten about her.



  24. 24

    I'm sure RCA is used to this by now. If they weren't dicks she wouldn't be saying this stuff. They don't need to hitch her wagon to someone else's star (Katy Perry, Ryan Tedder). This just serves to demonstrate how little confidence they have in her musical instincts, which undermines sales which hurts them & her. But their perceptions aren't based on reality. She wrote or co-wrote many of her hits, and anyone who has heard her pre-show material from her last US tour knows she can come up with material as strong as anyone in the business. Her fans probably hate RCA more than she does.



  25. 25

    She said the same thing when she came to Fresno, Ca in December. But that's why her fans love her, she tells it like it is. She said she still had 2 more records to do with that label. Not that she wanted them to give her to more records.



  26. 26

    She has a right to protest. All the suits want are radio friendly songs, nothing else. They think about the profits ONLY not stuff that the artist or fans want.



  27. 27

    lol it dont matter whether on of the suits was in the audience….

    Doing stuff you're not totally crazy about but wanting to do something else reminds me of a website author who really actuallywants to do Broadway.



  29. 29

    WTF is she wearing? It looks like something I wore to elementray school in 1990!



  30. 30

    I love Kelly Clarkson, I really do, but I am disgusted by how she has let herself go. Fat, greasy hair, no makeup. She is morphing into Rosie O'Donnell.



  31. 31

    Re: Brainbug
    She is not turing into that slob Rosie O'Donnel



  32. 32

    shes playing the apollo? shes been round for a good 7 years, why no upgrade to the men arena?



  33. 33

    This is why we love Kelly…



  34. 34

    Go Kelly! :D
