Clive Davis may have been the talk of the town when he decided to reveal his bisexuality, but Kelly Clarkson is more concerned about what divulges about her career.
In his newly released memoir The Soundtrack of My Life, Davis talks about a meeting that he had with Clarkson that apparently was “a very tough conversation, and it didn’t get any easier when Kelly burst in to hysterical sobbing,” while talking about having “Since U Been Gone” on her second album, Breakaway.
“Not true at all,” Clarkson says. “His stories and songs are mixed up. I couldn’t be more proud of that song. I resent him dampening that song in any way.”
Clarkson says that she did in fact cry during that meeting, but it sure wasn’t about “Since U Been Gone.”
“I cried after I played him a song I had written about my life called ‘Because of You,’ ” she says. “He hated it and told me verbatim that I was a ‘s–––ty writer who should be grateful for the gifts that he bestows upon me.’ ”
Apparently Davis has a bit of a memory problem as he tells a bit of a different version of the “Because of You” conflict in his book, released Tuesday.
“In subsequent interviews Kelly said that she had to fight to get “Because of You” on the album, but that simply wasn’t the case,” Clive writes. “I have no idea where she heard that.”
Sounds like we got some trouble brewin…
