    Reminds me of the Dixie Chicks drama.

    Funny, I never even once stopped to wonder what her political views were in the first place. Most good musicians have bad politics.

    Why musicians flatter themselves into thinking it's important to others what they think about politics is rather mystifying.

    ^Kelly didn't do anything different than dozens of posters here do on a daily basis, or what millions of normal people her age do on twitter/facebook every day. IMO, the people who complain about celebrities voicing their political opinions simply feel threatened by it.

    I could care less what or who CC endorses. It will not impact me in any way. But when you're a celebrity you are naive if you think fans all agree with you politically. There's plenty of precedent to that. As you mentioned, see Dixie Chicks, So if you choose to go public, acting surprised when there's backlash is pretty silly.

    I kind of wondered why a pop star would endorse a candidate and who would care, but to each their own.

    Whoever stops becoming a fan of a musician they like because of their political views is an idiot.

    I had to look up who she was:
    Kelly Brianne Clarkson (born April 24, 1982) is an American pop rock singer-songwriter and actress. Clarkson came into prominence after becoming the winner of the inaugural season of the television series American Idol in 2002 and would later become the runner-up in the television special World Idol in 2003.
    So - obviously I didn't care about her before.

    Still don't
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
