Kelly Clarkson Gives Fans Advice About AWKWARD Holiday Situations
Kelly Clarkson recently took some time to answer her fans’ holiday dilemmas in a digital exclusive for her talk show. The singer doled out advice about dealing with family during this time of year.
Considering Kelly is in the midst of a divorce from her husband Brandon Blackstock, she likely has some experience dealing with family awkwardness this year. However, she doesn’t mention her current situation in the clip.
Kelly Clarkson Gives Holiday Advice
One fan told Kelly she’d accidentally sent her aunt a group chat about spending time with “the fun ones” this holiday — which didn’t include her aunt. “You are in so much trouble,” Kelly told her, advising her to “own it” while admitting it was a “turd statement.”

Kelly also shared her philosophy about discussing politics with family around the holidays. She said she thinks keeping your mouth shut about religion or politics around family “doesn’t fix the problem.” She added, “Why would you not want to have conversations about stuff like that?”
She shared that she and her mother “are very different on some things,” but said that’s “not a problem.” Kelly said, “No progress will happen, no change will happen, unless we talk about it.”
Kelly also advised people to try out homemade gifts, adding that it can be “therapeutic,” especially in a hard year like 2020.
Kelly Promotes Her Christmas Songs
Kelly also suggested some of her own Christmas songs for fans to add to their party playlists. She mentioned “Underneath the Tree,” from her Christmas album Wrapped in Red, as well as her new duet with Brett Eldredge, “Under the Mistletoe.”
“I just use the word under a lot,” she said. “I didn’t realize I did that.”

She said it also depends on what vibe fans are going for with their playlists? Do they want something more up-tempo and poppy, or classic and throwback? She suggested people could have a themed Zoom party.
“That sounds sad, even as I said it,” she joked. “And with that, happy holidays!”
