Clarkson Recently Revealed the Hardest Part of Her Career
Clarkson stopped by actress Mayim Bialik’s podcast, “Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown,” where she talked about the parts of being famous that she finds the hardest.
Clarkson talked about the fact that she always has to worry about her appearance and the pressure she has felt to appear in a certain way. During the interview, Clarkson had on no makeup and pigtail braids, but she said her manager would not want her to look that way.
“I think the biggest thing for me in my whole career is, just being me has been really hard,” she shared. “Like, no manager would ever want me to do this – I have no makeup on.”
She also said that she doesn’t plan on getting any cosmetic surgeries or procedures.
“Any needle that goes in my body is either taking blood to check my thyroid,” she said, adding that she’d be terrified of the work.
“If I weren’t terrified, I would be sitting right here with some double Ds, I’m gonna be real with you because I never had big boobs and I always wanted big boobs, but I’m terrified, and I would never get a boob job,” she said. “Why would I cut myself on purpose?”
Fans know how important authenticity is to Kelly Clarkson. She later went on to say that people have constantly wanted her to change.
“Everybody would always micromanage everything and try to get you to be somebody that you’re not, and the hardest part has been being me,” Clarkson shared. “So, I think that’s been the hardest challenge, I guess I’d say, with mental health.”
