According to People.com, Kelly Clarkson talked about her divorce during a press-junket for The Voice, she opened up and explained how her life was going through a rough patch in her relationship with ex-husband Brandon Blackstock, 44. The couple had been married for the last 7 years and have two children, River Rose, 6, and Remington Alexander, 4½.
Believe it or not, adversity, sadness and depression are the drivers of real creativity as the mind swirls towards its expressive mode and something similar has happened with Kelly Clarkson during her divorce. The celebrated singer and songwriter has written around 60 songs amidst her divorce period. Gracefully the singer stated,
“I think that’s a blessing in itself,” she went on. “Anytime you go through some life, it’s such an awesome thing to have that outlet, regardless of whether people hear it or not.”
“I have this record that we’re working on,” she said before revealing that she is still unsure about how much of her personal life she will share with the public.
“It’s really great and really honest,” Clarkson said of her project. “There’s just a lot of questions that I have to answer before releasing it for myself, you know? Whether that be businesswise or personally.Whatever happens though, it is such a gift. I don’t know how anybody, I’ll just be real with you, goes through grief like divorce, any kind of grief, any kind of loss, without having an outlet like this”
The actress also spoke about how often she wonders what to keep private about her life and what to let out in her songs.
“I hate that I had to go through [the] ‘Because of You’ or ‘Piece by Piece’ [phase],” she explained. Certain songs that I’ve written certainly have shaped me, but have been really hard.They’re just difficult decisions to put those out because they’re so personal,” she told the outlet. “But the other side of [it] is like, ‘Man, how many people have come up to me?’ [Saying things] like, ‘You have no idea. I never wanted to talk about it. I never have told anyone this.’ Music has that way [of healing], even for me. I listen to other artists and music as a way of ‘healing you.”
