The reason Kelly Clarkson passed on making millions will make you stand up and cheer

September 15, 2017

The more I learn about Kelly Clarkson, the more I absolutely adore her. She's got her head screwed on straight and is not going to let anybody mess with that. Ever.

You might remember she was one of the women who voiced her support for Kesha during her very public lawsuit with producer, Dr. Luke, a while back. Kelly was forced to work with Dr. Luke earlier in her career and didn't have a good experience. Not the same experience Kesha had, but still.... not good. She begged her label to hook her up with anyone else, but they responded by saying they would basically sit on her record unless she worked with him on "My Life Would Suck Without You." She ended up making the song different enough to earn her a writing credit and she said no way. Kelly didn't want her name anywhere near his and was willing for forgo millions in royalties to demonstrate to the label exactly how much she didn't want to work with him. That's fierce.
