Kelly Clarkson: New Record and New Man
I think we can all remember watching Kelly Clarkson win American Idol. It was the very first season, and we were all invested in every song she sang and even the streaks in her hair. Of course, it was her knock out voice that led her to win that night.
When her first single Miss Independent came out and topped the charts, it was clear -- America was right, and Kelly Clarkson was here to stay.
I don't think anyone could have imagined that summer, just how big of a worldwide star Kelly would become. Over the past decade, Clarkson has proved herself to be not only the first, but the most successful American Idol ever. She has sold over 25 million records and over 36 million singles worldwide. She's won two Grammy Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, four American Music Awards and twelve Billboard Music Awards.
What I love about Kelly is that she is exactly the same girl that won over 10 years ago -- she's just one of us. She loves love, heartbreak and has good hair days and bad hair days. Plus, she has the talent to back up any song she sings. It's fitting then at just 30 years old that she would put out her first greatest hits record. I got the chance to sit down with Kelly (it was amazing, she ran into the room hugging people!) and talk about her new record and her new man!
