“Kelly Clarkson has come out swinging at Clive Davis, whom she accuses of ‘spreading false information about me and my music’ and bullying.”[HP]
Kelly Clarkson is no fan of legendary music producer Clive Davis, whom she claims has been sreading false information about her and her music. In fact, she goes so far as to claim that his behavior towards her is nothing less than bullying.
Clarkson is apparently upset with Davis for telling the media that she was “hysterical sobbing” when he demanded that the song “Since U Been Gone” be included on her album.
Clarkson denies the charge, saying, “Not true at all. His stories and songs are mixed up. I did want more guitars added to the original demo and Clive did not. [Producers Max Martin and Łukasz “Dr. Luke” Gottwald] and I still fought for the bigger sound and we prevailed and I couldn’t be more proud of the life of that song. I resent him dampening that song in any way.”
She does, however, own up to crying because of something else Davis did with regard to the song “Because of You”: “I cried because he hated it and told me verbatim that I was a ‘sh-tty writer who should be grateful for the gifts that he bestows upon me. He continued on about how the song didn’t rhyme and how I should just shut up and sing. This was devastating coming from a man who I, as a young girl, considered a musical hero and was so honored to work with.”
And all of this was before he came out as bisexual. Hey Kelly, here’s an idea: write a song about oversexed octogenarian music producers and see who cries then!
