Kelly Clarkson has recently told the media about the sweet gesture Taylor Swift shows each time she re-records her albums.
The host of Kelly Clarkson Show revealed to E! News, “You know what’s so funny? She just sent me flowers. She’s so nice. She did. She was like, ‘Every time I release something’—’cause she just did 1989. I got that really cute cardigan, too.”
As we know, Kelly had suggested in a tweet back in 2019 that Taylor should re-record her music after Scooter Braun’s company Ithaca Holdings LLC acquired her former label Big Machine Label Group, and got hold of the rights to the masters for her first six studio albums. And that’s precisely what Taylor did – she re-recorded her music.
The Breakaway singer insists however that Taylor would have re-recorded even if Kelly had not made the suggestion.
Kelly went on, “I love how kind she is though. She’s a very smart businesswoman. So, she would have thought of that. But it just sucks when you see artists that you admire and you respect really wanting something and it’s special to them. You know if they’re going to find a loophole, you find a loophole. And she did it and literally is, like, the best-selling artist I feel like of all-time now.”
The American Idol ex has praised the efforts of Swift fans for supporting Taylor all along.
Kelly concluded, “It’s so cool to see a fanbase really get behind her in that too because it’s important. She’s known for being such an incredible songwriter and the soundtrack to a lot of people’s lives and that’s her life. So, you should have the option of owning that.”
Kelly is now the daytime talk show host of her show and is also the owner of SiriusXM channel Kelly Clarkson Connection. She told E! at SiriusXM’s Major Next Generation event, “We called it Kelly Clarkson Connection because there is literally no connection with all the music I’m playing except that I like it. I’ve always wanted since I was a kid—I didn’t understand why Whitney Houston and Nirvana couldn’t be played on the same channel. Like, I like both, so why can’t we do that?”
