If you’re in the U.S. the political buzz for next year’s big elections has already begun. After Kelly Clarkson’s recent Twitter debacle endorsing Ron Paul, I had two distinct points-of-view about it all.
If you’re not sure what the Kelly Clarkson debacle was exactly, let me run it by you real quickly. Kelly publicly endorsed Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul on her Twitter. Twitter freaks out and is like “WTF Kelly?” Kelly says sorry for offending anyone, but it’s my personal stance. Blake Shelton defends her by saying he’ll “throat punch” someone for her.
Should Kelly have publicly endorsed a presidential candidate thus politically labeling her for the rest of her life? I, personally, hold 2 equal minds about this and would like to address Kelly in the personal letter to her I’ve written below:
Hey girl! Let’s just get something out of the way first. I really don’t like it when you sing “ain’t it somethin’ y’all?” Say it in person because you’re a ‘total dork’ but let’s not do that in future songs.
Anywho, I just wanted to tell you that I have two very distinct thoughts about your recent endorsement of presidential candidate Ron Paul. The first is that I think it’s great that you are bringing political awareness to your followers and fans. A girl you might know named Lady Gaga does this and has cultivated a following the likes of which we haven’t seen since Madonna. You have many young fans who adore you and bringing current world issues to their attention with the influence that you have is one gift that not many people are lucky enough to receive in their lifetimes. However, Kel-Kel. You DO realize that 99.999% of your fan base is either women, homosexual men, their hags, or straight guys majoring in vocal performance, right? In other words, yay for having an opinion but do realize that the people that buy your songs and albums may be turned off by your personal belief in wanting them or their loved ones to be considered ‘less than’ you. As a diva it’s your responsibility to take gays, hags and voice majors under your wing and protect them from the perils of life. Because frankly, that’s what your music has done for a lot of them! So don’t go bananas and ‘throat punch’ someone when your loyal gay, hag, vocal major fans are scratching their heads wondering what’s up.
Don’t be the clueless pop star who just loves to sing and has no idea who her fans are. You’re not Britney Spears!
Good luck on your Stronger Tour, I hope I get a chance to come see you!
