Oh, Kelly Clarkson.

I'll admit that I skulk around skinnyvscurvy.com - it's one of my favorite websites because I like to torture myself by looking at beautiful celebrities.  Although really, the people who run the site represent lots of various body types as beautiful and don't bash, for the most part.

Anyhoo, I had noticed in a recent commercial that Kelly Clarkson was looking fuller these days, and then I happened upon this post.  Wow, wow.



Now, I will say, the shot on the left was right after American Idol when she was SUPER popular, and I noticed she LOST weight after American Idol.  Presumably because of the pressure, stardom, touring, publicity and I'd also guess, pressure from her label.  However, the difference is still stark.

Kelly, girl, I feel you.  If you all want to know the kind of up and down roller coaster that I am used to... it's a lot like Kelly Clarkson's battle with extra weight.  Up and down.  Up and down.  SO frustrating.

Oh, but did I mention... she's an amazing singer?  And her new album is great?  Because that's true, yo.  The girl can blow.

I totally feel bad for her - celebrities get torn apart for this kind of stuff... But at the same time - I honestly didn't recognize her in the Toyota Camry commercial she's in...

And she definitely can SING!!

she has a thyroid problem that's why she has weight changes. she's getting treatment for it though. she said it during one of her concerts.

I've always loved Kelly Clarkson. I've picked up every CD she has ever released. I love her new one.

Kelly is from Burleson, TX not too far from where I live. I knew she was going to win Idol the first time I heard her sing. She blew away the field.

I've often wondered why we care so much as a society about a singer's weight. Singers makes music, which, last I checked, is for the years. Why is her weight consequential at all?

I guess we all think that celebrities have enough money or motivation to stop gaining weight. I guess that is not the case with everyone.

As for skinnyvscurvy, it's one of my guilty pleasures, reading that site. Although the comments can be harsh.

I love Kelly Clarkson! Her voice is amazing. And it sounds the same whether she's fat or thin.

I saw her 1 year ago in a concert and she looked pretty unhealthy ,I almost didn't recognized her. For me she's the best singer in the world I love her.. but still i think she should do something. Actually she's not going up and down she just went up and said she's happy like that. If I would have that much of money I would get a cook and coach like all the stars do :-)

Join the club. am a yo yo on speed. But I have just decided to kick the blubber to the kerb for the umpteenth time. We can do it.

IF Kelly has a thyroid problem she can do something about it. But I thinks it is hard to keep the weight off. Look at Heart - Ann Wilson. One of the best singers in the late sixties early seventies. And her career went down the toilet once she blew up like a balloon. It's a shame, but image is a big part of success. It just is...
