Kelly Clarkson Has Howard Stern on Her Side During Clive Davis Feud
The radio personality went on the air and said (via E! News), "I always find it sickening when management guys like to set the record straight about how f---ing creative and what geniuses they are." Dang, Howard, tell us how you really feel! He makes a point, though. What was the motive behind Davis' memoir in the first place? So he can just talk about how awesome he is for the millionth time?
The 'America's Got Talent' judge continued, "This guy's trying to diminish what she does? Doesn't he have enough in life? Can't he sort of tell his story without f---ing degrading her and putting her down?"
We totally agree with Stern on this one! The claims Davis made against the 'Since U Been Gone' songstress in his memoir border on bullying. The producer has a successful career and millions of dollars, so why is he publicly calling out Kelly Clarkson regardless of whether his claims are true or not? Does he get some sort of sick satisfaction out of bringing down others? Perhaps Davis is bitter that after he and Kelly went their separate ways, she still had a wildly successful career-- though he claims otherwise.
Stern made it very clear he is Team Kelly in this spat saying, "I think she has an amazing voice, and the girl has worked hard to get to where she is,. I don't understand Clive Davis' motivation for knocking this chick down."
Clarkson penned an open letter about Davis' book earlier this week saying that many of the details in his stories are mixed up. The record exec responded saying, "I had every fact checked with five independent individuals who were present on a daily basis throughout it all."
Classic case of the he saids, she saids, but after hearing Stern's take on the tiff, we're Team Kelly too!
