Kelly Clarkson Weight Loss! (PHOTOS)
Kelly Clarkson is looking slim! According to ABC News, the singer appeared at the ABC upfronts presentation in New York this week, promoting her upcoming reality show Duets and showing off some significant weight loss in a belted flowered pencil-style strappy dress compared with earlier this year (pictured at left).
Kelly, 30, has been known for her fluctuating weight – but in 2009, she told Self Magazine, “I’m never trying to lose weight — or gain it. I’m just being.”
The “Stronger” singer told NPR earlier this year that she actually turned down her first record deal because there was a stipulation about her weight. “The one contract that I was offered – this was my favorite thing ’cause I deal with it on the daily now – I literally weighed 124,” she said. “They told me if I lost 20 pounds that they’d sign me. And I was like, wow. And I had, like, an eating disorder in high school for a bit, so it’s like, I think God kind of put me through that to, you know, make me stronger for when situations like that kind of come up and still come up, obviously.”
No matter your weight, we love you Kelly! Keep singing!
