Press/Video: Kelly Clarkson and Blake Shelton Recall Hilarious Wine-Fueled Double Date Nights

Kelly Clarkson needed more than a minute to recover from this glass of wine.

The “Love So Soft” singer and her Voice co-star, Blake Shelton, are hilariously reliving one wine-fueled double date night with their significant others in an interview with ET.

“She’s the kinda person that I was already mad at for other reasons, like spilling something on the carpet,” Shelton says of the duo’s dynamic. Clarkson’s husband, Brandon Blackstock, is also Shelton’s longtime manager.

“If I’m around with wine, I’m thinking, did that actually happen?” Clarkson adds with a laugh. “That’s probably a true story.”

Leave it to Shelton to chime in with a hilarious true story on that subject.

“Last time I was at Kelly’s house,” he begins, “she had [what] started off as a white T-shirt…” Despite her best efforts to shush him, Clarkson ultimately concedes.

“Here’s the thing, y’all, in fairness, it’s every mother that hasn’t drank since having — you know, you’ve been pregnant, and you have a kid,” she says. “I tell you what, I mean, one glass in me and I just kinda made poor decisions from there.”

“It’s like a tie-dyed shirt by the end of the night,” Shelton adds, with Clarkson laughing: “My husband was a really good husband that night.”

Meanwhile, the double date nights have made their way from Clarkson’s Nashville home to Gwen Stefani’s Los Angeles pad.

“The first time I saw Gwen’s house, it’s insane!” Clarkson gushes. “I was kind of like Pretty Woman walking in the store, except I didn’t look like Julia Roberts, and I was walking in the store and they were like, ‘You don’t belong here.’

“She’s such a style icon as well as this amazing artist,” she continues. “I literally talked to my husband about her house for hours. I was like, ‘I felt like I was a good interior decorator, and then I walked into Gwen’s house.”

Clarkson can’t help but throw in one little quip at Shelton’s expense: “And then I’m like, why is she with him?!”

But Shelton admits, he’s been “wondering the same thing.”

“It was a shock to me that I got invited to her house,” he jokes, adding that Clarkson “has the biggest house I’ve ever been in in my life.”

“Kelly’s house proves that there were more winnings from American Idol than there are from The Voice,” he cracks.

Clarkson won Idol in its inaugural 2002 season and has since gone on to be one of the franchise’s strongest success stories. Now, with the series returning to the small screen, Clarkson admits that she does have one beef with the show that made her a star.

“I never got my new car. Everybody got a car but the OG, y’all!” she said. “You know who got a car? Clay Aiken got a car — he didn’t even win! Clay and his mom, his mom got a car! Carrie [Underwood], I heard, got offered a plane. I was like, ‘Are you insane?!'”

These days, Clarkson is slaying the reality TV game as the newest fan-favorite judge on The Voice. The series airs Monday and Tuesday nights on NBC.

Press/Music/Video: New Music Video and Song “I’ve Loved You Since Forever.”

See how Kelly Clarkson turned Hoda Kotb’s book into a beautiful lullaby

Hoda Kotb’s little 1-year old Haley Joy is a total inspiration — but not just to her mom.

She’s also inspired a brand-new song and video by pop superstar Kelly Clarkson, a song that itself was inspired by Hoda’s new book, “I’ve Loved You Since Forever.”

Want to download the song? It’s available right now on Apple and Amazon!

Talk about an ode to (Haley) joy!

Clarkson is a longtime friend to TODAY and Hoda, and as the TODAY anchor noted on Thursday, once she’d written the book about her daughter, she had a new thought. “Wouldn’t that be cool if someone could sing the book?” Hoda said.

Once that idea was in place, there was no question: Kelly Clarkson was the best and only choice!

“There is one person I know who has a voice that is in a class by itself,” said Hoda, 53.

So on Thursday, Hoda took us behind-the-scenes at Atlantic Records, where Clarkson was recording the tune. And naturally, she got a chance to join in, shaking a little rattle in time to the song.

But the rattle, along with Clarkson’s sweet voice, also got the tears rolling, and soon the ladies were hugging it out.

“I made it more like a lullaby, like James Taylor, like there’s kind of some Patty Griffin in it,” Clarkson told Hoda. “I hope we do it justice.”

Well, we sure think she does (not that we ever had a doubt). And if Hoda’s reaction is anything to go by, we’d say she hit the nail right on the head.

So what does Haley Joy think?

Well, let’s just say we can hear her adorable giggle from here.

Press/Video: Kelly Clarkson on How a Stranger’s Advice Inspired Her Career in Music

The singer explains why it’s important to validate people for their talents at a young age.

In her song “Whole Lotta Woman,” Kelly Clarkson describes herself as, “a strong bad-ass chick with classic confidence” and it’s easy to see why. Over the course of her 15-year music career, she’s accumulated 100 number-one songs on the Billboard charts, and sold more than 25 million albums worldwide. She’s currently a coach on season 14 of The Voice while also promoting her eighth studio album, Meaning of Life.

Before she became a Grammy award-winning artist, Clarkson’s path in life wasn’t always clear. When she was in seventh grade, she says that “there was just nothing really special [about me], I was kind of the kid that didn’t stand out in anyway.”

The turning point came when she was 13 and performed Mariah Carey’s “Vision of Love” at her school talent show. Clarkson says after the show, a stranger, who she assumed was a classmate’s grandfather, approached her and said, “That was so amazing, you’re gonna do this for the rest of your life.”

She was stunned. “I don’t even think I said ‘thank you.’” she says. “I was taken aback because I’d never received any kind of compliment like that.”

That compliment gave her the inspiration to pursue a career in music. “It was a really pivotal moment for someone to come up to me and instill that confidence at such a young age,” she says. “From that moment, all I focused on was singing, whether it was getting a scholarship for college or trying out for [American] Idol.”

Now in her current roles (as a mother and a coach on The Voice), Clarkson still thinks back to seventh grade and says it’s important that people feel validated for their hard work and talent.

She was never able to track down the stranger who gave her the ultimate compliment and now jokes, “Was he real?” “We all have these moments in our life that are so pivotal… that really was that fork in the road that sent [me] on a completely different path.”

Even though this experience was a positive one, Clarkson says not all her feedback is like that, and it’s important to keep going anyway.

“Not everybody’s gonna think your poo smells like roses,” she says. “None of us are Jesus Christ.”
