Kelly Clarkson continues to win America’s heart as a judge on The Voice, and in her all-around joyful attitude about life.

The Daily Mail’s Jane Mulerrrins wrote about a recent performance of Clarkson’s at the Rainbow Room, where she debuted a new song called “Whole Lotta Woman.” During her intro to the new tune, Clarkson addressed the intense media scrutiny her figure has gotten since she won American Idol 15 years ago:

‘Too skinny, too fat, too blonde—so much blah. This is who I am and I’m happy,’ she declared. ‘Happy looks different on everyone.’

‘The media has always been obsessed with it [her size],’ she says. ‘And I have felt conflicted over the years. Do you address it? Do you talk about it? Because then you just add to the noise. But people like me to talk about it, so I don’t really mind carrying that flag. I love that people come up to me and say: “Because you are comfortable in your skin, you have made me more comfortable in mine.” That’s the best compliment ever.’

Will “Whole Lotta Woman” be the antidote to “All About That Bass” we need?

Girl can blow, but I do wish she had some better songs. Can Reba help her out? With a set of lungs like that I feel like the pop she’s been serving are doing her a disservice. There are a few good ones- but I’d love to hear some more songs with some power.

But I’m not a huge pop fan so what do I know.

And I’ve always been of the opinion that vocalists are there to sing, so appearance is secondary. I know modern standards disagree with me, but that’s why we have so much auto tune crap floating around. It’s bullshit. And Clarkson is adorable. What’s the problem?
