    She's a good musician. I quite like her.

    If you read the link you realize she wasn't complaining...
    "Man, my eyes have been opened to so much hate tonight," Clarkson wrote. "If y'all ever disagree with something I say, please don't feel the need to attack me. I will listen to what you say and any articles or viewpoints you have when you say it with respect. Being hateful is not a healthy way to get people to see or hear you."

    "If you don't agree with me simply unfollow me," she added. "It's really that easy."

    No different than anyone here "endorsing" a candidate. I openly support Huntsman, so that is essentially an endorsement.

    Barring severe extreme views, I've never understood why people let a musician's political view influence what they listen to. One person I particularly like is way too liberal for my tastes, but that just tells me we'll cancel each other's vote. I still like his music, though.

    I'm not really into Kelly Clarkson's music, but I really admire her for being her own person. In both her personal and professional lives she does not bow to the status quo. She states and does what she believes, without being over-the-top or obnoxious about it.

    I liked her before and I still like her. I like Lady Gaga a bunch after seeing her stand up for gay rights constantly and stand against bullying. She's amazing.

    I agree. I think she's a genuine person and she's talented. I don't like all her music because I am not a country fan, but I watched the first American Idol and cheered for her the entire time.

    I also don't think she lost followers but gain 10k followers from it. Win-win

    I guess the people who "follow" her care since some of them have stopped "following" her. SMH.

    Exactly. The fans that are "tripping" are probably the ones that tout the "have an open mind"-"live and let live" motto. She didn't even cite specifics, or go into detail.

    Who gives a ****...Jesus Christ. Kelly Clarkson is a wonderful singer and she produces great music. Same with the Dixie Chicks. People need to stop caring so much about what celebrities say or believe politically. It's not like any of them are political scientists or policy experts.

    People in this country take celebrity **** too seriously.
