The American Idol lived up to the hype with a voice that blows everyone away. She is a Grammy Award winning artist. Her life is the fulfillment of the American dream rising from financially humble means to go on to super stardom.
Clarkson was born and reared in Texas. Her mother is Greek and info about the other part of her ethnicity is conflicting. Some sources state she is half Irish while others state that she is half English.
Other than being a multi-cultural melting pot and somewhat rags to riches story there is another reason we are calling her a model American, she use her freedom of speech to silence critic about her weight. She is outspoken about her weight fluctuation. Clarkson basically expresses that she is comfortable who she is no matter what weight she may be. By this she does takes away power from critics of her weight. In fact her strong words have been “Screw them.”
Responding to Andy Cohen on Thursday’s “Watch What Happens Live,” Clarkson said, “It doesn’t really matter what I do. If I’m too fat, then when I’m skinny, I’m too clothed, and if I’m too – you just can never win.”
