Kelly Clarkson Quotes

  • "My friends and family are my support system. They tell me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear and they are there for me in the good and bad times. Without them I have no idea where I would be and I know that their love for me is what's keeping my head above the water."

  • "God will never give you anything you can't handle, so don't stress."

  • "I never said I was a 'good girl.'"

  • "I'm cute—and God I hate that. Because that's not cool. I'm like your niece, and nobody wants to date their niece. It's the chubby cheeks. The whole reason people voted for me on American Idol is because I'm an everyday, normal girl."

  • "I love healthy stuff and junk an equal amount. Whatever I'm craving, I go for it. I'm never trying to lose weight or gain it. I'm just being."

  • "I sing songs that I have lived or I write them because I have lived them. I think the believability factor is key."

Best Kelly Clarkson Quotes

  • "My experiences remind me that it's those black clouds that make the blue skies even more beautiful."

  • "I try not to compliment our boys or our girls so much on aesthetics. If they look handsome or beautiful, obviously we'll say that, but I'm really adamant about everyone around us always saying like, ‘God, you're clever. You're smart. You're witty, you're funny … all the other things that make character."

  • "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."

  • "Me and my glam squad decided to show people the before/after so every little girl out there knows that no one really looks like this without a great team and magic."

  • "I came with a brain, and I came with drive and passion and sensuality, and these things that are awesome. If you can't handle it, that's totally cool, but you're not tall enough to ride this ride, then move along. It's fine.' We put a fun twist on it."

  • "We just are who we are."

Funny Kelly Clarkson Quotes

  • "Everybody always says that I'm the girl next door, which makes me think that y'all must have a lot of weird next-door neighbors."

  • "I feel like it's like the mom makeover on the TODAY show. I walk in and then I walk out and I'm like, ‘Damn!' I would love to take any credit for anything that's happening with the glam squad, but my team is insane."

  • "I'm not working out! I think people think I'm working out and I'm like, ‘Don't think I'm going to come play some sport!'"

  • "I feel like I'm a very nice person that you might want to sing with me."

  • "People keep asking me if I am having more fun, being blonde, but I always have fun! Whether I'm blonde, redhead, or brunette! I always have fun."

  • "I love Twitter! At first I made fun of it, because it is very narcissistic, and there's already so much narcissism flowing in this industry, I was like, 'Really, one more?' So I was against it at first. But I really love the idea of the direct connection—there's no middle man muddling it up."

Inspiring Kelly Clarkson Quotes

  • "I've just never cared what people think. It's more if I'm happy and I'm confident and feeling good. That's always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family—I don't seek out any other acceptance."

  • "Brandon is not my other half. He's a whole and I'm a whole. I've never believed in someone taking care of me, and that's probably because I grew up poor and without a lot of family stability."

  • "There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism—that is not me. I wish I had a better metabolism. But someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can. You always want what someone else has."

  • "I'm considerably blessed in my life. I came from nothing, and my life took a whirlwind change overnight. My life couldn't be any better. But you just pause and go, 'Why wouldn't you want to give back? Why wouldn't you want to help out when you have so much spotlight to share?'"

  • "I've never really felt pressure musically or personally to do anything else, because I'm fine with me. I think I'm awesome. And I'm doing my best as a human to put some creative stuff out there."

  • "I think it's important to tell girls that Photoshop is not reality, that's not what we look like, that's not what we want people to see."

Motivational Kelly Clarkson Quotes

  • "But people like me [need] to talk about it, so I don't really mind carrying that flag. I love that people come up to me and say: 'Because you are comfortable in your skin, you have made me more comfortable in mine.' That's the best compliment ever."

  • "Too skinny, too fat, too blonde—so much blah. This is who I am and I'm happy. Happy looks different on everyone."

  • "The thing I love most about going on vacation is that I get to leave behind any kind of schedule. My entire life is scheduled from morning to night, and when I'm on vacation, there is no schedule."

  • "My winning is getting to perform. That's my victory."

  • "When people talk about my weight, I'm like, 'You seem to have a problem with it; I don't.'"

  • "Really, what I try to instill in my fans is to be healthy and happy. I have no desire to be super-skinny."

Moving Kelly Clarkson Quotes

  • "There is no greater feeling than hanging out with my dogs, or just walking around the land with our horses. My rescue ranch is is where I feel the most at peace and where I'm reminded of the simple things in life and let the chaos of my crazy work life fade away."

  • "Honestly, I just think we all have special gifts, everyone. You know, obviously, some are more noticeable than others and that's why there's the limelight. Everybody's in it."

  • "Pick the weeds and keep the flowers."

  • "Music isn't just heard, it is felt."

  • "I'm actually not a big fan of the word hope. I think it's a depressing word. I don't want to hope—I want to know. Like I don't hope there's a God, I know there's a God."

  • "Never take advice from someone you wouldn't trade places with."

  • "I loved my 20s, but I would never repeat them."
