Kelly Clarkson’s release-date woes may be over–My December, which was shelved, then set for release in late July, is now coming out next month–but she probably isn’t making many friends at her label by telling all about how those rumors started:
“Everybody always wants me to go in different directions. Obviously they’re a record label so they need to sell records.They want the formula writers and the formula producers that do everybody else’s stuff, and while I love some of those people… and I don’t mind working with that…I just don’t like working with someone that gives you a song and is like, ‘Oh, I wrote this for you.’ But you find out that they’ve given it to every other artist and they turned it down, you know?”
Kelly might’ve been feeling pressure from her label, but she didn’t back down.
“My label literally sent me a Lindsay Lohan track from her last album and wanted me to record it for my new album. And while I like Lindsay Lohan, like I’m cool with her and I think she sings the song well… it’s already been on an album. I don’t care what pop star it is.”
Well, she might want to care, actually. After all, the Lohan album in question was a huge stinker that allegedy had not one, but two of its singles canceled–which makes the reported complaining about the lack of a “hit” on My December even more curious, unless the executives in question actually sent Clarkson Lohan’s take on “Edge Of Seventeen” by accident.
