Never Again, will I trash-talk Kelly Clarkson

Okay, this is a response to all those people that think I’m terrible for talking poorly of Kelly Clarkson’s recent album, My December.  I just want to put it out there that I think Clarkson is an excellent vocalist, AND I give her props for wanting to take control of her own career and drive her music in the direction in which she wanted it to go.  However, there is no denying the fact that Breakaway is much more appealing as an album to the mass market.  Whether you like the song or not, Sober was not meant to play on the radio.  I don’t know what was going on in Clarkson’s mind when she was writing My December with her band, and I probably never will – but it was totally her choice and she stood by it vehemently which is pretty cool.  She is the one who has to sing the songs day after day, so I guess if I was in her situation I would want to be singing something that was meaningful to me as well. 

Her situation is kind of like the reverse of selling-out, which is pretty rad.  You don’t often hear of people standing by their principles as such, especially when a tonne of money is being thrown at you.
