I never really stopped loving Kelly Clarkson since middle school, but something about her recent album and press has been making me fall in love all over again.
Take her recent responses to criticisms of her weight:
"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," she said. "And more so now, since having a family — I don't seek out any other acceptance."
Or the fact that she just admitted she was dating her costar Justin Guarini during the filming of "Justin and Kelly" from 2002...
Here's some musical reasons to love Kelly:
Her new song is a jam. A marriage and a baby later and she's still rocking out.
If you don't feel like a powerful independent woman after listening to this than you need a serious personality check.
If you want to be in my friend group, you can definitely try singing this chorus at the top of your lungs with me. Preferably in a very public place.
This is when I feel in love with Kelly and her suburban mom fashion.
