Kelly Clarkson Lashes Out At Taylor Swift’s Label Boss, Defends ‘Idol’

GettyImages 933110221 Kelly Clarkson Lashes Out At Taylor Swift’s Label Boss, Defends ‘Idol’While many took offense to Taylor Swift’s performance at the Grammys, Kelly Clarkson took offense to the defensive comments made by Swift’s label boss about his artist’s singing. Clarkson hit up her blog and penned her own response to Big Machine Records CEO Scott Borchetta’s claims that “This is not American Idol. This is not a competition of getting up and seeing who can sing the highest note. This is about a true artist and writer and communicator. It’s not about that technically perfect performance.” Oh, no he didn’t just trash America’s favorite reality competition show! The Idol winner’s scathing post after the jump:

Wow…..Dear Scott Borchetta,

I understand defending your artist obviously because I have done the same in the past for artists I like, including Taylor, so you might see why its upsetting to read you attacking American Idol for producing simply vocalists that hit ‘the high notes’. Thank you for that ‘Captain Obvious’ sense of humor because you know what, we not only hit the high notes, you forgot to mention we generally hit the ‘right’ notes as well. Every artist has a bad performance or two and that is understandable, but throwing blame will not make the situation at hand any better. I have been criticized left and right for having shaky performances before (and they were shaky) and what my manager or label executives say to me and the public is “I’ll kick butt next time” or “every performance isn’t going to be perfect” ……I bring this up because you should take a lesson from these people and instead of lashing out at other artists (that in your ‘humble’ opinion lack true artistry), you should simply take a breath and realize that sometimes things won’t go according to plan or work out and that’s okay.

Sincerely,

One of those contestants from American Idol who only made it because of her high notes icon wink Kelly Clarkson Lashes Out At Taylor Swift’s Label Boss, Defends ‘Idol’

Do we have the first great feud of 2010? Game on!
