Wow, so this British journalist and TV personality is either really enjoying her five minutes of fame from this situation or she’s completely lost her marbles because she’s now taken her attacks to television just a couple weeks after ranting on Twitter about Kelly Clarkson’s weight. Kelly, for her part, defended herself in the most polite and amazing way….
Let’s go back and dissect this a bit…..Katie Hopkins, who has a job at The Sun, first called Kelly out about her weight on Feb. 20.
She tweeted…“Jesus, what happened to Kelly Clarkson? Did she eat all of her backing singers? Happily I have wide-screen.” She added, “Darling, if you had a baby a year ago, that is not baby weight. It is fat. Quit calling it cute names to make yourself feel better.”
The ever so charming and ultra successful superstar vocalist laughed the incident off in an interview with Heat magazine, saying, “That’s because she doesn’t know me. I’m awesome! It doesn’t bother me. It’s a free world. Say what you will.”
Totally amazing response, amirite?!
Now keep in mind Kelly gave birth to her daughter, River Rose, in June 2015, clearly has his priorities in order when she went on to clarify “I’ve just never cared what people think. It’s more if I’m happy and I’m confident and feeling good, that’s always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family — I don’t seek out any other acceptance.”
Just LOVE her. That should’ve been enough to shut anyone up….but alas NOT Hopkins.
In an appearance on Access Hollywood, Hopkins not only didn’t apologize for her remarks, went deeper, saying, “Ultimately, Kelly Clarkson is a chunky monkey. We can call it ‘baby weight,’ we can call it ‘puppy fat,’ we can call it ‘love handles,’ we can call it ‘muffin top,’ any of the nice and kind of soft and cuddly names we give it, but ultimately it’s fat. She’s fat. She needs to get out, eat less and move more.”
Clarkson has not responded to Hopkins’ latest digs, but we wouldn’t be surprised if she took the high road. She’s classy like that. When Kelly was asked what advice she would give River Rose and her 13-year-old stepdaughter, Savannah, she tells Heat, “You need to be happy with who you are and, whoever that is, let your little light shine.”
