Kelly Clarkson Doesn't Mind the Fat Jokes

June 8, 2009

Kelly Clarkson has officially responded to the people who have been making fun of her because of her fluctuating weight.

Clarkson has been spotted in recent months showing off a fuller figure, leading celebrity bloggers to criticize her for chowin’ down too much and throwing on a few extra pounds.

But Kelly isn't letting these insults bother her, insisting she has been forced to deal with these criticisms since she rose to fame back in 2002. In a recent interview on 2Day FM's Kyle and Jackie O Show in Australia Kelly said, "For seven years it's been happening. It's like, 'Okay, cool the fat joke. I love my body. I'm very much OK with it. I don't think artists are ever the ones who have the problem with their weight, it is other people.'"

Clarkson also took on the rumors that she's gay. She stated: "I prefer the boys. I'm extremely flattered when I do get hit on by girls, and I think it's hot, but I'm not into it. I like boys."
