Kelly Clarkson Responds To ‘The Voice’ Contestant Who Accused Her Of Stereotyping

Kelly Clarkson has no problem paying contestants on “The Voice” a compliment when one is due, but the singer will not allow her words to be twisted into something that may come across as offensive.

“The Medicine” artist took to Twitter on Tuesday to clear up a post shared by former contestant Molly Stevens, an openly gay singer who accused Clarkson of only comparing her talents to other lesbian artists.

When one fan suggested the “Catch My Breath” singer should apologize, Clarkson tweeted out an explanation about why she felt it was appropriate to compare Stevens to the artists, and she noted it had nothing to do with their sexual orientation.

“Wow. This really bums me out. I need everyone 2 hear me & hear ALL OF THE WORDS I SAY. I compared Molly to Melissa Etheridge, Patty Griffin (a name that was left out conveniently), & the Indigo Girls purely because of the rasp in her voice & that she’s an amazing storyteller,” the singer tweeted.
