After Kelly Clarkson won “American Idol” many celebs dismissed the singer. Clarkson recently recalled during an episode of her talk show “people like were really mean to us because we’re from a talent show and it was the first season.”
She said she was at an awards show and Jennifer Love Hewitt gave her some kind words of advice that made a huge impression on Clarkson.
“You came up to me and ran up to me out of nowhere and were like, ‘Oh my gosh! I’m really rooting for you!’”
Clarkson continued, “You told me, ‘Please keep the ones you love so close and it’ll end up being about a few people in your life unfortunately, but this business can be really hard. And just remember to keep those people who really love you’ — and you just gave me this advice that was really, really kind in such an … unkind rather time for me personally.”
