“My Life Would Suck without You” (and the money and fame)

Not sure where About Today obtained this copy of Kelly Clarkson’s new single, “My Life Would Suck without You”, but it’s a stream-only affair. Musically, Clarkson has her tail between her legs after publicly dissing Clive Davis by insisting she knew best as to her musical direction. Whoops. The song is a blatant U-turn from angry rocker chick with a high school diary to sickly sweet commercial appeal a la Katie Perry. It’s a sausage factory reproduction of “Since You Been Gone” without the “I Will Survive”/“I am Woman” undertones. It’s written by a team of experts and was probably polled to death before final mixing. While it sounds amazing, it’s vapid, soulless pop, even for Clarkson, who made her name with at least a semblance of down-home realness. Clarkson obviously wants to be back on top, her personal musical vision be damned. Cuz, like, making mountains of money and being way famous-er is totally better.
