Kelly Clarkson attacked over cigarette ads

Kelly Clarkson has been attacked by the media over being sponsored by a cigarette company for her Jakarta concert on April 29, 2010.

The company has splashed their L.A. Lights logo all over the posters advertising the show, which has anti-smoking activists in an outrage.

The same thing happened to Alicia Keys in Jakarta in 2008, but she insisted the logo be removed from any ads featuring her likeness.

Matt Myers, president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids says, “If Kelly Clarkson goes ahead with the concert, she is by choice being a spokesman for the tobacco industry and helping them to market to children. She has the power now to turn this situation around and to send a clear message to Indonesian young people, and frankly, to the young people of the world.”
