In recent months, fans have noticed that Kelly Clarkson appears to have lost a significant amount of weight. In a new interview with Whoopi Goldberg, Clarkson addressed rumors that she used Ozempic to shed pounds.


Kelly Clarkson Says She Used Medication for Weight Loss

Earlier this week, Whoopi Goldberg appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show. When the host commented that Goldberg looks younger every time she sees her, the View co-host shared that it’s because she’s lost weight.

According to NBC News, Goldberg has previously shared that she uses the drug Mounjaro. When talking to Clarkson, she called it “that wonderful shot that works for folks who need some help.” Clarkson shared that she is also using medication, although she denied that it’s Ozempic.

“I ended up having to do that too, ’cause my bloodwork got so bad,” Clarkson explained. “My doctor chased me for, like, two years. And I was like, ‘No, I’m afraid of it. I already have thyroid problems’ … Everybody thinks it’s Ozempic. It’s not, it’s something else. But it’s something that aids in helping break down the sugar.”


Clarkson said she decided she needed to lose weight after watching a video of herself at a birthday celebration. She said she “didn’t see it” before then, sharing that she was around 203 pounds at her heaviest.

Clarkson Wasn’t Insecure About Her Weight

Clarkson found herself unrecognizable when she saw herself on video. She told Goldberg that she never felt insecure about her weight before, saying, “People are like, ‘Oh, she must have not been happy.’ I was like, ‘No, I was happy.’ I just did not see that.”


Goldberg could relate, saying, “You’re living your life, and you’re doing what you need to do. And that’s the last thing you’re thinking about, because you got other stuff on your mind.”

Earlier this year, Clarkson shared that she had been diagnosed as pre-diabetic. She said at the time that she “wasn’t shocked,” adding that she was “a tiny bit overweight.” Clarkson waited two years before she decided to “do something about it.”
