Kelly Clarkson says she will never bow to pop industry fashion pressure
Kelly Clarkson has admitted that while she likes to look nice she will never bow to the pressures of constant image reinvention because she wants her music to be the main focus.
The 'Mr. Know It All' hitmaker revealed to Closer magazine that she prefers comfort to style because she takes herself seriously as a musician and wants her work to speak for itself rather than creating a strong or particular image to bolster it:
"I don't want to wear no stilettos. I am not a model and I am not Beyoncé. It is not going to happen. I think you should be comfortable."
Clarkson referred to the outlandish and often unusual costumes worn by the likes of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, and added that she would never go down that route:
"This is such a funny industry. Sometimes I turn on awards shows and pop stars are wearing alien costumes. I'm like, 'That's cool for you but ain't no way in hell someone is going to convince me to wear that on stage.'"
"Not only can the music be formulaic, but the attire can be formulaic. Just like music, with style there is room for everything and it might not be everyone's cup of tea but it is that person's thing."
