Kelly Clarkson Advocates Smoking??

Uh-oh! She is going to piss off a lot of people, regardless of what she chooses!

Kelly Clarkson, who has never had a problem speaking out against things she doesn't like, is set to perform in concert in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia.

However, Indonesia apparently has no laws against advertising tobacco related products commercially, and one of the country's most popular brand of cigarettes, L.A. Lights, is sponsoring the pop star's show - and throwing advertisements up all over the town with her face next to the brand name of the cigarettes!

WTF?? Unacceptable!!

The singer has now come under fire from various anti-smoking campaigns back in the States!

Matt Myers, President of the Tobacco-Free Kids Campaign, says:

"If Kelly Clarkson goes ahead with the concert, she is by choice being a spokesman for the tobacco industry and helping them to market to children. She has the power now to turn this situation around and to send a clear message to Indonesian young people and, frankly, to the young people of the world."

Given Indonesia's growing problem with tobacco usage in their youth, not to mention in the rest of the world, we have to agree!

By complying to their sponorship, she's advocating and promoting smoking habits! Absolutely disgusting.

Neither Clarkson nor her label have commented or made a statement, but we're sure it's coming!

We hope she makes the right decision.

    Shut the fuck up, Perez. (lights cigarette and blows smoke in Perez's face).



  2. 2

    STFU Mario or Barbie if Lady CaCa was on that advertisement it would be fabosh! You stupid "hippo-crite"



  3. 3

    Funny…but its okay if Katy Perry does it huh? Its not yucky when she does it, but its yucky when Kelly does?

    Shove it PEREZ!



  4. 4

    Come on!! Kelly has no voice in this type of stuff.. And if it's legal there i don't see why you have to trash her.. Even if she decides to not do the concert the company will still have lots of advertising everywhere..



  5. 5

    please explain why your panties are in a bunch about this BUT you didn't respond to the countless comments about YOU posting a pic of Katy Perry smoking…hypocrite!



  6. 6

    But gaga wearing sunglasses made out of lit ciggarettes is okay? you're such a hypocrite perez.



  7. 7

    You dont say shit when katy Perry has a cigarette in her hand and Lady Gaga has lyrics about cigarettes but its fine then your a hypocrite. its about time someone puts you down all you do is make fun of other people because i guess your self conscious. i mean you make fun of Micha bartons of-fits but have you seen what youve been wearing recently? And honey just because you lost some weight doesnt make it more okay, I mean for someone who is pretty ugly you sure spend alot of time dissing everyone else for there looks. have you looked in you cracked mirror latley? and the only reason people like Katy Perry like you is because they just dont want you to say shit about them on you website. how could you build yourself on that kind of hate. Stick to reporting gossip not putting your fucked up baised and often hypocritical opinion in it

    Re: happiestgirl – thank you so much i just said the same thing,



  9. 9

    I don't see the problem. It's another country, so it's legal. Okay.

    PS- I'm not going to switch cell phone companies or shop at Wal Mart just because a concert was sponsored by it. Who cares!

    SMOKING KILLS! Not only smokers, but people who are subjected to second-hand smoke also die of smoking related sicknesses.

  11. 11

    Hmm but Katy Perry can smoke and you write hot… and GAGA can be seen smoking and wear cigarette freaking glasses in a music video and you say nothing. Wow.



  12. 12

    she always speaks out about things she doesn't like it's because she's a fucking immature teenage kid trapped in a fat body…



  13. 13

    I love Indonesia!!!!!!



  14. 14

    Re: pesce1 – You're fucking right.. Lady Gaga always talks about ciggarettes on her songs.. And in Telephone she is even wearing them.. Perez is such an ass!



  15. 15

    boo hoo people are going to smoke if they want to and it doesn't matter who advocates it



  16. 16

    Ah look, the tobacco Nazi's are out in force telling everyone how to live their lives. Like she's got any choice- go tell it to her record label.



  17. 17

    Smoking is legal. Who gives a shit there is always some pansy ass organization whiny about something. Shut up kids are not going to start smoking causeof Kelly Freaking Clarkson.

  18. Phaze says – reply to this


    18

    Oh, shut the fuck up.

    It's her sponsor, what the hell do you expect? If people want to smoke they are going to smoke, I don't like it, but i'm not going to put people down who do. Besides, it's Indonesia, who, you just said: "has no laws against advertising tobacco related products commercially".

    Mind your own damn business.



  19. 19

    does all this crap u advertise define who you are Perez. By the poster I did not know that that was an add for cigs but for tennis until you pointed it out.

    So really you are the one advertising cigarettes in a country that says it is illegal(US) at least she is doing it in a country that is.



  20. 20

    Fuck YOU Perez…She should be happy anyone is using her for Advertisement. Reminds me, I need a smoke…



  21. 21

    – Fuck off Mario–



  22. 22

    OMG she's advocating the use of maybelline make-up too! GROSS, right perez??? Why do you think that she has a choice who sponsors her concerts? Especially in other countries? Would you rather her cancel?



  23. 23

    Re: pesce1 – Gaga could wear harden turds in the form of glasses and Perez would call it genius…daring…amazing blah you get it.



  24. 24

    Pervez, this is possibly your stupidest post ever, although there have been so many, I can't be sure. I hope you die of lung cancer, you piece of sub-human garbage.

  25. @v@ says – reply to this


    25

    The P.T.A. is trying to tell other adults what they should be allowed to do again.



  26. 26

    OMG so many people are going to die, what were you thinking, kelly? Well I'd rater have her promote suicide and terroism than read one more post of you promoting Lady Gaga.



  27. 27

    Suck it Perez, you hypocrite. I don't get you one minute you praise Kelly then the next you talk shit about her. Have you know that Kelly hates smoking so promoting is out of the question. She probably has no idea about it, heck she didn't know which singles of hers were being released in what countries.



  28. 28

    Pumpkinhead Mario accepted that rotgut vodka as a sponsor for his ill-fated tour. One could therefore assume he supports drunken driving and cirrhosis of the liver.

    If big tobacco wants to throw their money into a hurting economy, let them.

    Re: Cashmere Jay – Really. Well, that's conditional ethics for ya, you betcha.



  31. 31

    Hey Porky, you smoke dicks and got herpes. I think I'll take my chances with cigarettes.



  32. 32

    I bet you would be fine with advertising from cigarette companies if they paid you enough. Don't be such a fucking hypocrite.



  33. 33

    Re: pesce1 – You are SO right!



  34. 34

    one day, I conjecture, a picture of a drunken Perez and a totally disheveled Gaga, both snorting off a tranny's butt dimples is going to come out, and that day smoking a freaking cigarette is NOT going to look so terrible in comparison…



  35. 35

    OMG, WHO CARES PEREZ!?!!? Like, seriously!
    There are far worse sponsors out there!
    Make peace with the fact that there are smokers!
    There have been, there are and there will be!
    Promiscuity, drinking, drugs, being stressed out,
    Paris Hilton- these are far more dangerous things!
    Jeez. What's the big deal!?!?
    ANti-smokers are usually weekend smokers or people who used to smoke or smoke when they drink- so they know they love it!
    Being fat, Perez, is healthy, eh?



  36. 36

    After the things you put in your mouth, I dont think you need to worry about a cig!!!!
    bahahahaha!!!



  37. 37

    Re: @v@ – All of Pumpkinhead's ethics are conditional. Turnabout is fair play. regards J



  38. 38

    PLEASE address why it's different when Katy or ____ is walking around smoking? Seriously. Fucking idiot. Meth is alot worse than smoking btw.



  39. 39

    thats just dumb! just bcuz they are a sponsor doesn't mean she is promoting ciggs to kids. If she was like hey I love to smoke and you should too, then u can talk shit otherwise just shut it!



  40. 40

    r u fucking serious?
    this pisses me off.
    the anti-smoking ppl are so fucking pissed at kelly clarkson, a singer.
    but yet, it's ok to smoke in a movie, even though it still kinda ADVERTISES smoking!

    all big events in Indonesia are sponsored by cigarette companies. they are the only one that is willing to sponsor. no international artist/band would come here if it weren't for those cigarette companies. even sports event is sponsored by cigarette companies! we still have rules about smoking! some events they have to check id if they aren't under age especially when it's sponsored by cigarette companies! let's don't be negative and find out what's behind the scene! cheers!



  42. 42

    GRRRR—why are you so hypocritical and judgmental???

    Smoking is BADDDDDDD–unless your beloved Katy Perry or Gaga DOES IT!

    NEWSFLASH–WE DON'T HAVE TO LIVE OUR LIVES ACCORDING TO YOUR RULEBOOK!!



  43. 43

    smoking has its down side. health issues. smoke smell. potential for premature aging of appearance. expensive. burning yourself accidentally if too drunk to hold the cig proper. but COME ON! it's not the worst habit to have…

    i smoke to be politically incorrect. started again in 08 after quitting in 00-01. and i will quit again when i'm pregnant. but i will repeat it, there's a lot worse things one can be addicted to.



  44. 44

    Umm Lady Gaga smokes and you never say anything about that. Kelly doesn't smoke and this isn't her fault.



  45. 45

    That dose not advocate smoking! there is no pic of a cigarette or even say the word tobacco in there logo… It's seeing all the celebs that young people look up to actually smoking like Katy Perry, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart , Avril, katherine heigl the list goes on… I think they are the ones setting a bad example!



  46. 46

    I hope perez makes the right decision and stops smoking cock.



  47. 47

    Your Gagaloo did a photo shoot smoking.
    If it's someone's personal choice to smoke then whatever, but Gaga made the conscious choice to smoke in a planned photo. Stop being so hypocritical.



  48. 48

    is this any different then Budweiser sponsoring a tour?



  49. 49

    Umm, last I heard smoking was legal when you turn 18 here in the states. In the rest of the world, age varies. She ha to make money. She has to earn a livng. When did she become responsible or the mother of everyones children? It is not up to advertisement, ciggarett makers or Kelly to influence, or make sure kids do not smoke. That is up to the parents. I am certain Perez events you attend or or throw are sponsore by alcohol companies. I am certain these events provide tons of free liquor.. What about them influencig children? When kids se your pictures attending these events, how many show loquor advertisement? You even have a gay chat line advertising here. Would smeones parent not like you encouraging homosexuality?? quit being a judge of what others do until you can take stock of what you do..



  50. 50

    Its sad now that Kelly's career has nose dived so low she'll take whatever sponsor she can get. Next will be Hostess Twinkies.



  51. 51

    Dont blame this on Kelly. I highly doubt she'll cancel this concert, unlike most singers she could care less what people think all she cares about is HER FANS! Dude its a frecking billboard shes not on televison with a cig in her mouth saying "smoke, its cool i do it!"



  52. 52

    dear, mario aka perez, it's common in Indonesia that a cigarette company to be the concert sponsor, it's not only happen to Kelly Clarkson, years before, there were A LOT of MUSIC CONCERT that's BEING SPONSORED by CIGARETTE COMPANY, and I am 100% SURE if LADY GAGA or KATY PERRY would perform here (INDONESIA), the concert would be SPONSORED by ANY CIGARETTE COMPANY

  53. @v@ says – reply to this


    53

    Re: Cashmere Jay – So we should all be angry that the vodka sponsor wasn't a GOOD vodka. Rotgut, lol.



  54. 54

    I so love Kelly!!! She is sooo talented it aint funny!! I wish she was out in the public eye more! I wish she would not worry about her sexuality so much. She is so great, no one cares what she is. Loves her no matter what!



  55. 55

    1. It isn't like Kelly has a word about who sponsores her concert. 2. why I never hear/read any f*cking organization go against drugs with a force like this????
    I'll go and have a cigarette now, boo.



  56. 56

    Perez, What the fuck is your problem with Kelly Clarkson?? Leave her alone and stop the hate. Chillax man! have a smoke!



  57. 57

    Perez, simple note here…..STFU



  58. 58

    Ya, because she gets to make those decisions……RIIIIIIGHT. Now, if you'll excuse me, I am late for my smoke break.



  59. 59

    Its not like she has a choice, im from indonesia and i know that cigarette companies there, are sad to say the ones that always sponsor musicians to come into the country, theyre the wealthiest. Many musicians were sponsored by LA Lights and there wasnt any problem with it. If it wasn't for those companies, us indonesians won't get the sponsors to brought in musicians like her. We need entertainment too :P



  60. 60

    grow up. welcome to the world of i-don't wanna-start-shit-i-just-wanna-do-my-job. just because you're a professional singer doesn't make you a role model and it doesn't give you an obligation to try to change things in other countries.



  61. 61

    Well she obviously doesn't smoke herself, too fat.



  62. 62

    ooooomg get over it, people who say that young kids will start to smoke just because someone famous does it really bother me.
    i mean, i have smoked since i was 13, and i still smoke (17 now), and i know it is fcked up, but it was my own choice, not because the head of someone famous is next to a cigarette commercial.



  63. 63

    Oh please, even if she decided not to so the concert, it wouldn't change anything. Indonesia would still have advertisements everywhere. And as for the anti-smoking groups, kids don't just see smoking from the celebrities…they probably have relatives that smoke, then there's also peer pressure, there's always going to be that one friend who smokes. So get over it, smoking is not going anywhere anytime soon.



  64. 64

    Who cares? Kids are going to smoke no matter what.
