Kelly Clarkson is a flippin' goddess

So, I know I'm late on the bandwagon. Did you know who she is? Of course you did. I mean I know the name. I don't actually watch more than one episode of "American Idol" a season, but I knew she'd been on there. Why don't I watch it? It's entertaining, right? Too much damn talking....I guess that's it. I start out watching the first episode...and then I get bored. Just flat bored. Forget it's thing you know everyone is talking about the changes for the next season...what? It's over? Who won? Never mind...I wouldn't remember them anyway.

That was her, right? Until she came out with "Because of You" in 2004. Everyone said it was a bad love affair, but I read she said it was about her mom. It was a great song...and then I forgot about her again. Sometimes I have the attention span of a flea.

How do I know what the attention span of a flea is? I have two kids, both diagnosed with ADHD. I wasn't. But I went through school being the girl always looking out the window. Never paying attention. Always interuppting. Always moving...ever in the back of my mind is my Aunt Bunne saying, "Just stop jiggling your leg!" But the assessment I took says no. I think I was just bored. And distractable. What was I saying?

Oh, yeah...Kelly Clarkson is a freakin' goddess. After that song I liked in 2004, I kind of forgot about her. I knew her name was always around, but I couldn't tell you what she was doing.

But then...she had a baby! Cut the side of her hair super short! Slammed the haters who tried to body shame her! And all of a sudden there are all these YouTube videos of her doing cover this cover of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space":

or this one, Adele's "Someone Like You":

And then, there she was singing Tinder profiles, of all things:

Holy mother of all things good and wonderful...this woman can SING IT.

But I think this new one may be one of my's Prince's "Purple Rain."

So, yeah, I may be late to the game....but I'm now a Kelly Clarkson fan..atic.

She's so open and honest, announcing she's "totally pregnant" the other night. Now to go listen to every song she's sung since the beginning.
