Kelly Clarkson

Singer Kelly Clarkson has revealed there was a time in her life when she was suicidal but no one cared because she looked healthy.

In an interview with Attitude Magazine, Clarkson discussed starting out as a singer and feeling the pressure to stay skinny. She said:

When I was really skinny and unhappy, I wanted to kill myself. I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life. But no one cared, because aesthetically you make sense.

It was a very dark time for me. I thought the only way out was quitting. I like wrecked my knees and my feet because all I would do is put in headphones and run. I was at the gym all the time.

Battling for the creative control of her career during the release of album “My December,” Clarkson realized things had to change. She said:

There’s a song on My December called Sober. There’s this line ‘picked the weeds but kept the flowers’ and I just live my life by that because you are who you surround yourself with.

I was around some really negative people, and I got out of it because I had a lot of great people there too. It was a case of turning around, facing them and walking toward the light.

While her words in the magazine may be misconstrued, Clarkson clarified on her Twitter, saying she wasn’t miserable because she had to be thin, but was thin because she was miserable.

She added that people had no idea she was unhappy because she looked healthy. she wrote:

Just to clear something up. I wasn’t ever miserable because I had to be thin. I said I was miserable & as a result I became thin.

NOT TRUE. I’ve never contemplated suicide because of my weight.I said people had no idea I was unhappy oddly enough because I appeared healthy

    What is she saying? Is “suicidal written on anyone’s face, thin or fat?

    Why are you blaming people for not knowing you were suicidal when you were skinny, like they would have known if you were fat?

    The victim mentality is strong with Americans. Look, I’m fat and unhealthy presently like you and have been made fin of from time to time. But instead of sulking and blaming everyone, I’ve decided to take charge of my life by embracing a healthier version of me. I think you should do the same Miss. Clarkson.
