Kelly Clarkson just spilled the beans about her mental health on her latest show, and boy, did the tea spill everywhere!
In a chit-chat with Bridgerton’s very own Phoebe Dynevor on The Kelly Clarkson Show, our favorite actress let us in on her little secret: acting is her superhero cape against the evil forces of depression. Move over, therapists, there’s a new player in town!
Kelly jumped right into the conversation, nodding along with Phoebe, saying, “Oh, we’re all a bit ADHD in this industry, you know? We thrive on chaos and doing a million things at once.” ADHD or just a bunch of overachievers? You decide.
Now, let’s not forget the rocky road Kelly’s been cruising on after her high-profile split with ex-hubby Brandon Blackstock. But fear not, \because Kelly has relocated to the concrete jungle of New York City with her adorable kiddos, and she’s loving every concrete bit of it.
Hold your horses, though! The plot thickens as she spills the beans about her tenth studio album, Chemistry, being her therapeutic diary post-divorce. Move over, Freud! Kelly’s got songwriting as her couch, and she’s spilling her heart out.
In her own words, she shared with PEOPLE, “I didn’t see it as anything other than: This is my outlet. I’m a ‘let-go’ person; I don’t hold grudges.” Well, aren’t you just the Buddha of breakups, Kelly?
Brace yourselves for the wisdom bomb Kelly dropped, “So it was really delving into what happened in my life and why—and what am I going to do about it?” Move aside, self-help books, Kelly’s got it all figured out through the power of song.
And in a dramatic twist, she revealed, “I cannot express how appreciative I feel for having that kind of healthy outlet. Because the level of depression and things that come with divorce or grieving is extraordinarily hard.” Who needs therapy when you’ve got a platinum record, right?
Kelly Clarkson, the queen of musical therapy, turning heartbreak into chart-topping hits. Move over, Adele, there’s a new emotional powerhouse in town, and she’s hitting those high notes of self-discovery and healing.
