Jakarta Mishap

Posted in Uncategorized on April 21, 2010 by iamkelly

So ….my morning began with finding out that I am all over billboards, tv ads, and other media formats along side a tobacco company who unbeknownst to me is sponsoring my Jakarta date on my current tour. I was not made aware of this and am in no way an advocate or an ambassador for youth smoking. I’m not even a smoker, nor have I ever been. Unfortunately, my only option at this point was to cancel the show in order to stop the sponsorship. However, I can’t justify penalizing my fans for someone else’s oversight. This is a lose-lose situation for me and I am not happy about it but the damage has been done and I refuse to cancel on my fans. I think the hardest part of situations like this is getting personally attacked for something I was completely unaware of and being used as some kind of political pawn.

Wow …..Dear Scott Borchetta,

I understand defending your artist obviously because I have done the same in the past for artists I like, including Taylor, so you might see why its upsetting to read you attacking American Idol Β for producing simply vocalists that hit ‘the high notes’. Thank you for that ‘Captain Obvious’ sense of humor because you know what, we not only hit the high notes, you forgot to mention we generally hit the ‘right’ notes as well. Every artist has a bad performance or two and that is understandable, but throwing blame will not make the situation at hand any better. I have been criticized left and right for having shaky performances before (and they were shaky) and what my manager or label executives say to me and the public is “I’ll kick butt next time” or “every performance isn’t going to be perfect” ……I bring this up because you should take a lesson from these people and instead of lashing out at other artists (that in your ‘humble’ opinion lack true artistry), you should simply take a breath and realize that sometimes things won’t go according to plan or work out and that’s okay.

Merry Christmas!!

Posted in Uncategorized on December 25, 2009 by iamkelly

Hey everybody,

Just wanted to say hello and hope y’all are having a great Christmas πŸ™‚ So far my day has consisted of feeding and watering horses, slipping on my butt in A LOT of mud (thanks to all the pretty snow that came our way and then turned to crappy slush), playing with my dogs, opening some awesome presents from family and friends, and getting beat by my 7 year old nephew at the game Sorry ….very embarrassing, yet a reality. We just finished up my tour here in the U.S., in New Orleans (had an incredible end of tour party there, thank you New Orleans), and had an awesome tour run here in the states! I love my band and crew! They work so hard and are amazing people! I recorded a christmas song for my mom during the last show, for one of her presents this year, and it turned out alright so I’m gonna try and post it for y’all. I sang “I’ll be home for Christmas” and it’s not too bad so I thought y’all might want to have it since I don’t have a christmas cd or anything. Hopefully my internet works long enough out here in the sticks for me to be able to post it. I have come to the conclusion that I pissed off the internet gods and they hate me so we’ll see what happens πŸ™‚ Thanks for all the support this year! Without y’all I wouldn’t get to do what I love ….which would suck.

So, Melissa Etheridge is so cool first off, but her voice is absolutely incredible!! I’m so happy I asked her to sing on the show with me and I’m even more happy that she said yes and I got to perform with her! It was one of my favorite moments of the year…she’s such a class act and rad as can be!

I also got to meet Adele for the first time and she’s so freaking adorable and sings like an angel! India Arie was really nice and it was pretty much amazing that I got to see her and Sheryl both perform last night because I’m a huge fan of both and had never seen them live before! I knew I’d have fun at the show, but I didn’t think I’d have THAT much fun ha! All the girls on the show are pretty much the opposite of ‘diva’. They were way too nice and friendly and everyone was having a great time! We’re all different but it made for a very eclectic and exciting show! I was super proud to share the stage with such classy girls!

Although we just finished a tour, I’m back in rehearsals for my upcoming fall tour haha! No rest for the weary πŸ™‚ We’re actually all pretty pumped about it because we’re adding different songs and we just built an entire stage for this specific tour, woohoo! We’re also doing a pre-show party too so we’re all learning songs for that as well. I’ll be singing some covers by artists I like and some unreleased songs which will be fun.

Off to bed, later

Dear Kanye,

What happened to you as a child?? Did you not get hugged enough?? Something must have happened to make you this way and I think we’re all just curious as to what would make a grown man go on national television and make a talented artist, let alone teenager, feel like shit. I mean, I’ve seen you do some pretty shitty things, but you just keep amazing me with your tactless, asshole ways. It’s absolutely fascinating how much I don’t like you. I like everyone. I even like my asshole ex that cheated on me over you…which is pretty odd since I don’t even personally know you. The best part of this evening is that you weren’t even up for THIS award and yet you still have a problem with the outcome. Is winning a moon man that much of a life goal?? You can have mine if it will shut you up.Β Is it that important, really??

I was actually nominated in the same category that Taylor won and I was excited for her…so why can’t you be?? I’m not even mad at you for being an asshole…I just pity you because you’re a sad human being.

On a side note, Beyonce has always been a class act and proved again tonight that she still is. Go TEXAS!!

Taylor Swift, you outsell him ….that’s why he’s bitter. You know I love your work! Keep it up girl!

so i recently went to adele’s concert and she is amazing!! i love her album but hearing her voice live is definitely something everyone should go and hear! her lower register sends chills up my spine and she nails high notes that sound effortless and emotional, she’s crazy awesome! if you haven’t seen her live, please do, you will thank me πŸ™‚

and a great irish band ‘the script’ opened for her and they’re killer as well! very musical and very cool. 3 out of 4 guys sang almost the entire show (the drummer and guitarist did some awesome harmonies) and it was really a great show! i’ve been listening to their album for a while Β (my sister turned me on to them) and was very excited when i learned that they were opening up for adele! whoever paired these acts together should win some kind of prize because the crowd loved the show and they compliment each other very well!


i also recently walked with some friends for a march of dimes event ‘march for babies’ in nashville and even though it rained and my pants were soaked haha it was amazing to meet all of these kids, parents and staff that are so dedicated and really inspired to help out! i met so many kids that worked the event and i was so proud of them because i never even knew about helping out or doing charity work like they’re doing at such a young age! it was awesome to be a part of! i hope y’all know that even if you don’t have money you can always be a part of simple things like ‘walks’ for whatever cause you are inspired by and it means the world to people that are affected by the event and the people who are trying to shine a light on it. everyone there helped shine a light on a very worthy cause so thank you if you walked or sent money or were simply praying for the kids and parents that are being helped.

oh and major side note, nicole kidman was at the walk and she might be one of the most chill celebrities i’ve ever met! she has no airs about her and was so sweet to my friends and everyone there that day. super cool chick! i love meeting successful people who are genuinely good people at heart. it’s inspiring. oh yeah, and if you were curious about what it would feel like to have your picture taken with nicole kidman ….well, it’s pretty much the most humbling experience ever because she’s so breathtakingly beautiful ….so that was fun haha!

alright, well i am off to bed. i have a show here in boston tomorrow (or technically today πŸ™‚ and i need to get some sleep. see y’all! oh and i just love freakin boston man! after seven years of touring here and visting, it is still one of my favorite places ever! maybe not in the winter but definitely the other 3 seasons πŸ™‚

‘i do not hook up’

Posted in Uncategorized on April 7, 2009 by iamkelly

so i just got the video and it’s hilarious! watching me crawl across a table attempting to be sexy in a fantasy is pretty funny to say the least πŸ™‚ i hope y’all like it. we had a lot of fun making it! bryan barber directed it and this was our 2nd time to work together. he’s super cool and very colorful when it comes to videos! my sister actually took some pictures on set while we were shooting so i’m gonna post some (well, try anyway ….my computer skills are lacking πŸ™‚

i’m so happy y’all are liking the music!! i do not hook up (my second single) is about to officially drop at radio and i hope y’all like it as much as y’all liked my life would suck without you! the support for this album has been awesome so thank you very much!Β 

just got beat at ‘candyland’, ‘farkle’ and ‘sorry’ by my sister ….she sucks and i’ve decided to cut my losses and never play board games with her …..ever again πŸ™‚

we’re getting ready for some summer tour dates right now and we are all pumped! WE CANNOT WAIT TO TOUR WITH THE NEW MUSIC!!!! and we are working on a couple cool cover songs that i hope work out because they’re great!

right now my family is starting up a non-profit organization for rescuing animals. we’re starting with horses and dogs so i figured i’d show y’all my personal horses and dogs because they are awesome! they all have their own personalities and are super friendly but like to jump all over you haha (the dogs, not the horses πŸ™‚Β

my personal favorite song at the moment (and partly do to my sister because she NEVER stops listening to it) is ‘gives you hell’ by the all-american rejects! great, great song! if you’re living under a rock and haven’t heard it yet then go and download it, it’s awesome!Β 

i’m about to start rehearsing the new record with the band and my first performance of ‘my life would suck without you’ will be in the bahamas …..so not too bad, very excited about that! ….so is the band ha! just saw the final cut of my video which y’all will be seeing soon and it’s super cute! you ladies will love the leading man, Houston, and all you fellas out there ….well, y’all are stuck with me ha! just kidding πŸ™‚Β 

finished the twilight books (so did my mom and sister) and we cannot wait for the next movie ‘new moon’. do not judge us, we cannot help ourselves πŸ™‚ now my sister and i are going to read a classic ‘the divine comedy’. although, it’s a classic it doesn’t have edward cullen in it so i pray it holds my attention ha!Β 

peace out


4 DAYS!!!!

Posted in Uncategorized on January 9, 2009 by iamkelly

i’m headed to london today for some album promo and i’m so freakin’ excited!! i’m ready for y’all to hear this album! i’m so proud of it!! i think it’s 4 more days and my first single drops at radio and i’m super super pumped!! we decided the cover of the album and just in case you haven’t seen it i’ll post it! it’s very colorful and they have definitely photo-shopped the crap out of me but i don’t care haha! whoever she is, she looks great ha! i’ve had so much fun with this album i really hope y’all dig it woohooooooooooo!!!!

and by the way, i’m now on ‘eclipse’ of the twilight series and so is my mom, my sister and all of my friends …..you could say we’re a bit addicted and all searching for our very own personal ‘edward’ …..and yes, in the most pathetic way possible ha πŸ™‚

ooh!! and the soundtrack to the movie ‘twilight’ is awesome! i can’t stop listening to ‘flightless bird, american mouth’! the production is breathtaking!

alright, peace out ….off to london

happy holidays!!

Posted in Uncategorized on December 1, 2008 by iamkelly

so i’ve been in texas since ending the tour. i’ve been hanging with family during the holidays and i made my first turkey with my sister this year ….which is kind of hilarious seeing as how i haven’t eaten meat in over a year, but it was fun to make. and by fun, i mean our turkey was awesome and everything but i’ll never do it again. it was freakin’ exhausting!! i had to wake up at 5 in the morning, the night before we had to brine the dang thing, and oh my lord i’ll never do it again. my sister and i made the ENTIRE meal and i gotta be honest it gave me a whole new respect for housewives because it was just tiring!! all the cleaning and cooking and baking and watching babies! now that i’m done complaining i will tell you that my sister and i had a competition with my brother and his girlfriend on who was gonna make the best turkey and well, was there any doubt …..you should never challenge the ‘clarkson’ women, we always dominate ….it’s what we do.Β 

anyway, just waiting for all the songs for the new album to be mixed and mastered. it’s pretty much taking forever but i want it done right so i’m not gonna rush them ….too much πŸ™‚

i’ve been listening to pink’s new album, which i love! i have come to the conclusion that she is possibly one of the greatest talents of our generation. if you don’t have her new album you should get it ….favorites of mine are ‘please don’t leave me’, ‘bad influence’, ‘crystal ball’, and ‘mean’. i don’t think it’s possible for her to come out with something bad because her voice is like a classic story, you just wanna freakin’ hear it over and over again! brandi carlile also has that voice, so great!

i saw the movie ‘australia’ tonight with a friend and i mean wow ….god did good when he made hugh jackman! it was kind of long but i loved the movie! of course you can’t really go wrong with baz luhrmann, nicole kidman and hugh jackman but this little kid that was in the movie stole the show. he was so adorable!

also just want to say thank you again to all the fans who came out and supported the ‘2 worlds, 2 voices’ tour! it was by far the highlight of my life sharing a stage with reba! y’all have no idea how cool reba really is! it’s awesome to grow up loving someone for their talent and then getting to know and love them more as a friend later in life ….i owe the big guy upstairs a lot for that one because that was totally something i prayed for when i was a kid ….okay, mushy moment over haha πŸ™‚

hope y’all are taking time to chill and slow down for the holidays! …..and if you aren’t maybe you should play hookie tomorrow and sleep in …..i’m just sayin’
