Recently, music mogul Clive Davis came out with his memoir “The Sound Track Of My Life” where he apparently trashed “American Idol” season one winner Kelly Clarkson. He basically said that she was “hysterically sobbing” after he insisted her song “Since U Been Gone” be included on her second album. Kelly hit back at Clive, saying that she would not be bullied.
She took to her official website to say, “So I just heard Clive Davis is releasing a memoir and spreading false information about me and my music. I refuse to be bullied and I just have to clear up his memory lapses and misinformation for myself and for my fans. It feels like a violation. Growing up is awesome because you learn you don’t have to cower to anyone – even Clive Davis.”
Now, Howard Stern is jumping into the mix, taking Kelly’s side in the war of the words. He said that he finds it “sickening” when the head honchos try to take credit for their artist’s work.
He revealed on his show, “I always find it sickening when management guys like to set the record straight about how f**king creative and what geniuses they are. And like this guy’s trying to diminish what she does? Doesn’t he have enough in life? Can’t he sort of tell his story without f**king degrading her and putting her down?”
He added, “I think she has an amazing voice, and the girl has worked hard to get to where she is. I don’t understand Clive Davis’ motivation for knocking this chick down.”
Get em’ Howard!
