Kelly Clarkson & Clive Davis Had A Major Falling Out
ABC Online says Kelly Clarkson and legendary record executive Clive Davis had a major falling out a few years ago over the direction of her music, and now she's taking issue with Davis' description of their working relationship, which appears in his new memoir, The Soundtrack of My Life.
In a lengthy posting, Kelly accuses Davis of "spreading false information about" her and her music. She writes, "I refuse to be bullied and I just have to clear up his memory lapses and misinformation for myself and for my fans. It feels like a violation."
In his memoir, Davis contends that Kelly burst into "hysterical sobbing" in his office because she claimed he was forcing her to put two songs she "hated" -- "Since U Been Gone" and "Behind These Hazel Eyes" -- on her second album, Breakaway. Davis writes that he explained to Kelly that those two songs would be huge hits, and they absolutely had to be on her album if she wanted to take her career to the next level. Of course, Davis was later proven correct.
