Kelly Clarkson says 2006 GRAMMYs experience was ruined by false cancer information
Singer Kelly Clarkson has revealed that the same day she won two GRAMMYs in 2006 she was told she had cancerous medical results, which tarnished her enjoyment of the occasion.
Speaking on the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, she explained that it really put a downer on the entire experience: "Well, not many people know this, not to be a Debbie Downer, but I was told that morning that I had cancerous results for something... And then when I won, I thought, 'Oh my god. This is like God giving me one more thing before something horrible happens."
The 'Because of You' sensation admitted that the next day the doctor apologised for the mix up, but it was the kind of thing that shouldn't have been mixed up to begin with:
"I went to the doctor's the next day and they apologised for mixing up results. And I was like, 'Are you for real?!' I was like, 'You completely ruined my entire (experience).' The first time for an artist... as a kid watching the Grammys, that was a big dream! It was kind of the worst/greatest day."
"And the next day was also the worst/greatest day because I wanted to punch someone. I was like, 'Who mixes up results? Why wouldn't you test again?' It was very much a roller coaster ride, that day, for me. So, it's kind of unfortunate, but a lot of the moments got stolen from that mishap. But hey, I didn't have cancer!"
