Kelly Clarkson Furious Over Tabloid Misquotes

The original "American Idol" was left fuming after reading a recent article in UK's "Mirror." Kelly Clarkson Furious Over Tabloid Misquotes

Most of us can relate to what it feels like to have someone misrepresent something we’ve said.  It’s frustrating whether it’s at work, within your circle of friends or among your family members.  In fact, it can even damage relationships which, of course, is terrible since what’s being said may not even reflect the truth.

Kelly Clarkson is taking aim at the cover story in UK’s Mirror Sunday Celebs insert.  The original American Idol champ is furious at being misquoted and took particular offense to their headline: "No one on the planet should be as famous as me."

She rightfully feels that her words were twisted around to make her seem “obnoxious and arrogant” and she was even more astonished that the tabloid claims that she revealed a past battle with anorexia.

The Texan took to Twitter to defend herself and wrote: "I have never had anorexia nor did I ever say 'no one should be as famous as me.  I said in the interview, when asked about fame, that I have no desire to be as famous as Britney [Spears] or Madonna. I said that kind of fame was too much for any person and that I have experienced a portion of what they deal with and that I didn't handle that well and I'm happy where I'm at in my career. Nice job Mirror."

Honestly, anyone who has followed Clarkson over the years would argue that the quotes in the Mirror really do seem inconsistent with how she has carried herself over the years.  It just doesn’t make sense that she would put herself so high up on a pedestal when she’s normally so down-to-earth.

Her fellow Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, tweeted in support of Clarkson and wrote: "Tell em girl!!!!!"

It’s unlikely but it would be nice to see them retract their story and apologize for misquoting her.
