Kelly Clarkson's 'Life' Sucks In Australia!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooKelly ClarksonMusic MinuteAustraliasticAmerican IdolBusiness Blitz


Times are tough for everyone - especially Kelly Clarkson!

The original American Idol is just wrapping up the Australian leg of her All I Ever Wanted tour in Australia - and she apparently bombed worse than her My December album!

We're hearing that ticket sales were so shiteous that she performed to half empty arenas! For example, according to box office reports, at her concert in Newcastle on April 15th, Kelly performed to 2,308 people at the Newcastle Entertainment Center, which sits 5,146 people.


Better luck in Indonesia, bb! At least you did the right thing and cancelled the cigarette sponsorship!

  2. 2

  3. 3

    Damn that sux…….she's getting a lil thick huh…….at least she doesnt carry it that bad….go Kelly.

  4. 4

    Wow, she got fat. See what happens when you bad mouth Taylor Swift you fat troll!!!!! Karma's a bitch!

  5. 5

    Because Aussies' are anti whaling..

  6. 6

    Oh my god shut the fuck up about the ads already. she didnt know about them. I'm sure if you were actually famous enough to be recognized you'd realize that a lot of times managers and PR teams act without the stars knowledge. Not to mention that it wasn't even her team that picked the sponsor it was the venue in Indonesia.

  7. 7

    What a porker lol

  8. 8

    That is so terrible! Her last cd was really, really good.

  9. 9

    CHUNKY MONKEY. Probably shouldn't have dissed on TSwift.

  10. 10

    Taylor Swift's fans need to learn how to read.

  11. 11

    Don't they have stylists or makeup people in Australia? I think my grandma wore that dress in 1980 to Beverly and Irv Goldsteins 50th.

    Why is there so much HATE, most of you are just BULLIES, get a life…you should look @ yourself first b4 commenting, it's sad to know that most of you are the future…Perez has created monsters…

  13. 13

    Well, I suppose if an Australian Idol performed in the US, he/she'd be playing to tens of people, not thousands. Not that this really means anything, but I think any level of international success is quite impressive, when compared to the rest of the winners of that show.

  14. 14

    i know this is off topic but i was searching for something on google and i noticed this message at the bottom .."In response to a complaint we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 2 result(s) from this page"

  15. 15

    I went to her Brisbane concert and yes half the concert hall was blocked off but I just don't think she's a big a draw and we don't have 3 different arenas to choose from to perform in - most concerts including Disney on Ice are performed at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre, they just adapt it for the amount of people they anticipate coming. She was PHENOMENAL!!!

  16. 16

    She looks terrible! I don't think that people should be stick thin but I also believe in being health-conscious. A little exercise and a little less junk food goes a long way…

  17. 17

    That pic is several months old…. Now adays she's like… 5 pounds lighter :-(

  18. 18

    oh my God
    has she gotten faaatt

  19. 19

    in her defense it was not promoted AT ALL.
    not even in free press magsd - pretty crap

  20. 20

    I love Kelly! She's a great musician and entertainer and actually seems down to earth. She also seems to have a conscience (social and otherwise). Those Aussies are just low rent half wits descended from British criminals who don't appreciate her talent. Now New Zealand, OTH, TOTALLY different story. NZ is fab!

  21. 21

    Wow..kelly gained major wait over the years…she use to be so small an perky…I noticed most of all America Idol winners gain weight…The only one to stay her exact same size is Carrie Underwood…that is because Carrie said she is obsessed with taking care of body… I actually think this is Kelly real size and perhaps she had been starving herself for years in the past…people who are short normally gain a lot of weight as they age.

  22. 22

    Re: olivergray – No, your gram's hem was below her knees, I was there!

  23. 23

    omg, pls loose some weight

  24. 24

    Re: FATTIES need to purge
    hey everyone! purgey just learnt (through wikipidia!) about australian history! yay for her!
    you like neew zuland ay?
    it is a very beautiful place i have to admit. they are like our little cousins… it's so nice to hear you say something positive my little messed up friend :)

  25. 25

    too bad girlfriend cant keep her weight in check

  26. 26

    Kelly could stand to lost a few pounds, many of us could, so people shouldn't hate on her for that. I still think she's beautiful and she's a great singer. She didn't badmouth Taylor Swift, she was defending the unfair criticism American Idol was getting at the hands of Taylor's people. I listen to Kelly's music all the time and Taylor Swift's too.

  27. 27

    She needs to work on her fitness

  28. 28

    How can you get so fat and not get any of it in your boobs?

  29. Imy says – reply to this


    YAY I'M FROM NEWCASTLE! But fuck, that's EMBARRASSING… I went to Taylor Swift's (who sucked live) and Gaga's (who I love and who absolutely rocks ayayayyaya) concerts at the entertainment centre and there wasn't an empty seat in sight! Kelly's just… old… she hasn't had a good hit since 'Since U Been Gone'.

  30. Stone says – reply to this


    BAHAHAHA. Fat.

  31. 31

    she knows how to sing but looks bad

    also she's not Britney OR Gaga OR Madonna
    these 3 ladies are the only ones who can sell out everywhere no matter if they sing or run in circles with playback…

  32. 32

    shes cool but dress is horrible

  33. 33


  34. 34

    I am Aussie and had absolutely NO idea she was even here……..

  35. 35

    haha i was at that concert. all these rows of chairs were covered to make it look like she was performing to a full crowd, though it was obvious she wasn't. good concert though :)

  36. 36

    She needs to stop sitting at Appleby's and get to the damn gym.

  37. 37

    One thing you have to understand though is that most american pop artists don't even tour outside of the US and Europe because the profit margin isn't as high in other countries. Even when artist do go to aussie they usually only perform in Sydney, and sometimes Melbourne. She probably had a more ambitious schedule to make sure she satisfies all of her fans in a place she has prob never toured in before, but it doesn't surprise me that she played to a half full arena because of this.

  38. 38

    I saw her at her Sydney show, I thought it was a bit quiet compared to a lot of shows I've seen there, but still, the crowd loved her, I've never been a huge fan but I thought she was Awesome, At least she cares about her Aussie fans, not like other big names such as Malawi Madge!…(twice)

  39. 39

    i went to the melbourne show and there was not a empty seat in the house… she was awesome!

  40. 40

    She cancelled the Indonesia cigarette sponsorship? If anything she should take up smoking (you know, like *skinny* fashion models do…)

  41. 41

    Why are people going on and on about her weight? She's never been thin. Kelly is about the voice, not the ass. It's sickening how many sheeple have been conditioned to associate talent with body size.

  42. 42


  43. 43

    I beg to differ, Sydney was packed as was Brisbane.

  44. Olcia says – reply to this


    I love her!!

  45. 45

    At least she HAS a tour.

  46. 46

    That camera lens is just really small. At least , She has a pretty face.

  47. 47

    Girl is getting fat :O

  48. 48

    If you produce good music and have catchy videos then you'll survive in the music industry, so get to work girl.

  49. 49

    MOO MOO! What a COW!

  50. 50




  51. 51

    Are you kidding me? Look at this beast. They put fried eggs on hamburgers in Australia - bitch LOVES the place.

  52. 52

    I think the main point here is… That she even did a show in NEWCASTLE. I mean, Jesus.. Newcastle a typical 'city'!


  53. 53

    I honestly don't understand how someone like her can perform after zero PR for her recent album. I really love Kelly, but she's just gone from the public eye, except for her shows. She needs to run that promotion trail before she can expect any sales, and she has lost her glamour-pull with her weight gain and rough appearance.

  54. 54

    She 's just chubby enough for me to impersonate her now


  55. 55

    I love Kelly Clarkson and think she has an amazing voice, but I have to say she looks terrible. I saw her on Divas Live and thought she was Adele. Her upper arms look like stuffed sausages and she now has Sequoya legs. Stop eating coochie and get yourself to a gym stat!

  56. 56

    so are you filtering the comments now Perez? COWARD!

  57. 57

    what's up with the one bright green gem on the dress??…….funny, it's the only one that stood out…..

  58. 58

    regardless of her looks-kc is an amazingly talented singer-i went to many of her shows and one on her current tour-its no frills - she just "sangs" LIVE and that's ALL I EVER WANTED -it was well worth the money -

  59. 59

    Re: Imy – why is Taylor Swift popular over there? I don't even know how she's popular here where people listen to country music.

  60. 60

    I went to her sydney concert and it was about 99% full to capacity. The arena holds close to 20,000. Find the Newcastle deal hard to believe, it'd a big city. She has many fans here, and she's well liked.

  61. 61

    The amount of comments about her weight in this post makes me sick. You're all ignorant bastards.

  62. 62

    She'd perform for 20 people in coffee shops and would still enjoy herself. She doesn't give a shit about all of your shallow and out-of-line opinions about her weight or how many tickets she sells. She just loves music and her fans. So save yourself the time and stop rattling her because it doesn't affect her attitude or confidence even a little bit.

  63. 63

    Good golly, she's looking an aweful lot like Susan Boyle these days.

  64. 64

    Lesbians do eat a lot!

  65. 65

    Was she always this fat? She looks terrible

  66. 66

    Oh, I think Kelly is an AMAZING SINGER; she's also a cow; I though she was into healthy living…Put down the pork-rinds!

  67. 67

    She has great talent, someone has to help her with her image, she got too fat….and image sells!

  68. J W says – reply to this


    she might want to take up smoking in hopes it would shed a few of those pounds and make her more attractive

  69. 69

    I wouldnt go see her if she was playing a free concert in my back yard.

  70. 70


  71. 71

    Gosh, girlfriend needs to go on a diet. She looks really unhealthy.

  72. 72

    it is because she looks completely average now… why pay to see someone who's completely average when you can go to the mall and see average people for free?!

  73. 73

  74. 74

    Yes, the woman has gained weight…most people who are under loads of stress produce too much cortisol and this is a very bad thing for overall health…she should go to a dr for some help. Poor thing! Next patient….

  75. 75

    Wish I was there with you, Kells

  76. 76

    Jeez let it go people, she's not thin and that's so last year. Perez, is it possible to stop letting 5 year olds read your blog? it's getting pretty pathetic. People are so miserable with themselves that they take pleasure in insulting others. Get a grip. Who cares what happens in Australia?? at least she sold 23 million world wide and tours around the world. No other idol accomplished that. In fact she is the only one who ever gave that show any credibility to begin with. Many of you who are young and stupid don't have a clue so please STFU and go to bed.

  77. 77

    Has she always looked THIS bad!?

  78. 78

    Why are Taylor Swift fans thinking she's better than KC just because she's a beanpole alien looking bitch? Bitch cant sing for shit!

  79. WoMC says – reply to this


    i find all of these cracks about her weight so insane….i mean seriously people, look at yourself and also look at who's ass you come to kiss when you visit this sight.

  80. 80

    I normally don't comment on peoples weight but Kelly is definitely getting a little thick. I think a little exercise would be in order.

  81. 81

    Like it or not when you're selling yourself as an act your appearance does affect your success. I think it's ok to be critical because the comments are saying that she isn't selling tickets because she's overweight not that she's a bad person, it's just an evalution of the product that her business sells. We're probably no better than her but we do jobs that require other sacrifices so we don't have to look fantastic, her job is to make people think she's great but if she doesn't treasure herself then she shouldn't expect antybody else to pay to. Essentially all performers give away the right to be themselves while they're earning lot's of money appealing to their fans ideals. This is why Idol and X factor contestants didn't get signed up when they were kids, the dedication faded somewhere along the way and for 99% of them that resurfaces after their reality tv success.

  82. 82

    Barf.. omg.. she's so fat.. @_@

  83. 83

    wow that's karma babe…hmm i wonder if Taylor Swift is having any trouble with her ticket sales? Nope.

  84. 84

    No wonder my cousin had bulimia and ended up IN HOSPITAL. You people are cruel, hope you're proud of those comments:)

  85. 85

    Well, I'm going on the premise that it's not mean to state a fact, especially when it comes to the arts, which should be maintained at a high level to best bless any culture/society. In that regard - this woman simply can't sing, so why would people go to concerts to hear her? None of the people from that Idol show can sing, and I'm amazed that millions of Americans even watch it and think that those people can come close to carrying a tune. What is going on with our nation when so many can't even tell the difference between a talented person and one who is actually incapable of doing what they claim to be doing? You're either on key or not, and it should be pretty easy to tell the difference, my fellow Americans!

  86. 86

    Re: celebluvr67 – Taylor Swift fans are nauseating… Learn how to fucking read.

  87. 87

    Re: FATTIES need to purge – LOL! What do you think Kiwis and Americans are, dear? Transportation of criminals was commonly done to all three regions (as well as some others). LOL! Geesh.

  88. 88

    Re: omgeogeo – yep

  89. 89

    You know whats really funny? me and my friends call girls that used to be pretty and skinny and are now walruses "Kelly Clarksons" or Clarkson for short. HAHAHAHA

  90. 90

    uumm wtf??? kelly clarkson is AMAZING. her last album was the best yet and i love all her songs. wtf australia. jk i love your accents.
    and uhh who cares if she's fat. jesus guys, stop being so fucking judgemental.

  91. 91

    oink, bitch.

  92. 92

    My sister works for an arena in California where Kelly performed recently. I guess she's a huge diva and has an enormous entourage. Aside from extensive catering, she also requires that the arena hosting her gives her 300 (yes, three HUNDRED) brand new towels. What for? Who knows. They go in her dressing room and she takes them with her when she leaves.

  93. 93

    No wonder America is in the shit when all you fucktards care about is someones weight. Please, can everyone here who thinks Kelly's weight is too much to bare post their own pic up here so we can laugh and tell you all how fucking ugly and retarded you look.

  94. 94

    Newcastle is about 1 1/2 / 2 hours out of Sydney and is well known for supporting underground and unsigned Australian Rock, Punk & Hardcore bands not commercial music.

  95. joe13 says – reply to this


    Listen up, KC does normally end-stage or half stage shows. Yes the Newcastle Arena sits 5,146, but it was a half-stage concert, meaning that only half of the arena was available for seating. So the 2,308 that went, that was almost a sold out show honey.
    But don't worry about her, she's doing awesome

  96. 96

    Step away from the twinkie . . .

  97. 97

    Re: Imy – yay another newie person :D . gaga was Fudging amazing

  98. 98

    Re: maxie pad – u're wrong for that. she DOES need to lose weight but should not resort to smoking. that's disgusting

  99. 99

    i wish i could figure out what i'm doing wrong because none of my comments are going through. maybe it's because they make sense.

  100. 100

    Dear disrespecting, lying, sneaky little troll: You just said that there were 1/2 empty arena's, not arena. You a liar! There was ONE but that's it. You seem to have an agenda, man.
