Kelly Clarkson has been taking on social media fat-shamers for a while -- and now she's taking her fight even wider.
The original American Idol, who's on a big comeback run, doubled down on defending her curves in a new Redbook interview. She says that in the music biz, "no one actually cares about your health. They just care about aesthetics. It’s when I’m fat that I’m happy. People think, 'Oh, there’s something wrong with her. She’s putting on weight.' I’m like, 'Oh, no! I’m sorry, but that represents happiness in my emotional world.'"
Kel has taken the drastic loss route in the past and says, "For me, when I’m skinny is usually when I’m not doing well. If you gauge your life on what other people think, you’re going to be in a constant state of panic trying to please everyone."
