Kelly Clarkson on being body-shamed: 'I felt more pressure when I was thin'

This pressure, she says, was often the result of people around her showing her images of naked women on magazine covers in a body-shaming act. “I felt more pressure from people actually when I was thin, when I was really thin and not super healthy because I just was worn out, just working so hard and not keeping healthy habits,” Clarkson explained. That's who they are.” The 38-year-old added that nowadays she shuts any body-shaming down before it even begins, saying: “I fought more when I was thinner than I do now, because now I just walk in and I just look at them like, ‘I dare you to say something. “You’re just holding yourself back and you're risking beautiful relationships that you could have with people because you just still haven't worked out your own damage.” “It's been exhausting honestly, cooking every meal and cleaning nonstop after toddlers and teenagers! I'm a full-on mom.’ “I already have abandonment issues, so I don't want to pass those down.” The couple, who have been married since 2013, share two children together, daughter River Rose, five, and son Remington Alexander, four. Blackstock also has a 17-year-old daughter Savannah and 13-year-old son, Seth, with his ex-wife Melissa Ashworth.
