Kelly Clarkson wore a mini dress that showed off her figure and legs at the 2015 iHeartRadio Summer Pool Party on Saturday, and she now has people talking about her appearance at the event. According to E! Online on May 31, Clarkson was one of the performers at the event. She sang two of her classic hits on stage before singing her latest single titled “Invincible.” She released a music video for that song over the weekend as well.
What outfit has people talking about the former “American Idol” star? E! Online revealed that she wore a “short-sleeve cream and yellow lace frock with a white tulle overlay, paired with a skinny tan belt and matching ballet flats with black bows.”
Clarkson’s weight gain has been the cause of controversy for the singer, but she has fought back against those critics. She is not allowing anyone to tell her what to do or how to look. Earlier this year, Chris Wallace from Fox News made a joking remark about Clarkson’s weight during an interview, according to People Magazine. He later apologized for his comment.
Clarkson has been open about her weight issues, and she spoke about them when she appeared on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” in April, according to Time. She said the following:
“I love how people think that’s new — like, ‘Welcome to the past 13 years.’ Yeah, I was the biggest girl on [American Idol], too. And I wasn’t big, but people would call me big because I was the biggest one on Idol, and I’ve kind of always gotten that Well, it hurts your feelings more if it’s someone else that you like. I think what hurts my feelings for people is that I’ll have a meet-and-greet after the show and a girl who’s, like, bigger than me will be in the meet-and-greet and be like, ‘Wow, if they think you’re big, I must be so fat to them.’ It’s like, you’re just who you are. We are who we are. Whatever size, and it doesn’t meant that we’re gonna be that forever.”
She also revealed that she goes through phases. There will be some times where she is more “fit” and works out a lot, but there will be times where all she wants to do is sit on her couch with a glass of wine.
Clarkson is a new mom. She has been very open about showing River, her new daughter off, on Instagram. Her daughter will turn one later this month, and her focus has been on raising her little girl while returning to her music career at the same time.
According to Huffington Post Entertainment, Clarkson shared even more about her weight struggles in an interview with Redbook. She posed with her daughter on the cover of the May 2015 issue. She said the following:
“I don’t obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why other people have such a problem with it. There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism — that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism. But someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can. You always want what someone else has.”
With her appearance at the IHeartRadio event this weekend, Kelly Clarkson definitely showed her critics that she does not care at all about what they have to say or think about her weight. She showed all the fat shaming critics exactly what she thinks of them by wearing a mini dress and showing herself instead of hiding her body.
