Kelly Clarkson Reveals the Truth Behind Her Hit Song: “I Was Lied To”

Kelly Clarkson recently spoke out about one of her biggest hits, shedding light on a contentious backstory and claiming that she was deceived during the songwriting process. The revelation came during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live, where she addressed allegations made in former RCA Records head Clive Davis’ memoir.

During the interview with host Andy Cohen, Clarkson explained that she had initially pushed back on recording the song and including it on her 2004 album, but a misleading narrative was presented to her by the label. “Let’s give some backstory,” Clarkson began. “I was lied to.”

According to Clarkson, she was approached by her team, who informed her that there were producers interested in working with her on a song. She was told that the song had dummy lyrics and that she would be responsible for writing the actual lyrics. Trusting this information, Clarkson agreed to collaborate.

However, upon arriving in Sweden to work on the song, Clarkson discovered that two individuals named Luke and Max had already written the song, unbeknownst to her. This revelation left her feeling like a fool, as the label had provided her with a completely different account. She questioned the need for such deception and expressed her disappointment, stating, “I don’t like the lying.”

Despite the negative experience and “bad vibe” surrounding the song’s origin story, Clarkson clarified that she can still perform the beloved hit because she is adept at compartmentalizing her feelings. She proudly mentioned her ability to deliver a powerful performance of the song during her tours.

This is not the first time Clarkson and Clive Davis have been at odds. In 2013, Clarkson criticized Davis, accusing him of spreading “false information” in his memoir, The Soundtrack of My Life. The book delved into their disagreements over Clarkson’s third studio album, My December, as well as the controversies surrounding the recording process of some of her songs.

Addressing Davis directly, Clarkson asserted her refusal to be bullied, stating that she felt the need to set the record straight for herself and her fans. She expressed a sense of empowerment, emphasizing that she no longer felt the need to yield to anyone, including Clive Davis.

Kelly Clarkson’s candid revelation offers a glimpse into the often complex and deceptive world of the music industry. As fans continue to appreciate her hit song, they can now appreciate the resilience and professionalism with which Clarkson overcame the challenges associated with its creation.
