Clive Davis Says Kelly Clarkson’s Memory Is Bad – And He Supposedly Has Witnesses to Prove It
Yesterday (Feb. 19), Kelly Clarkson went on the internet to clear up some stories music legend Clive Davis told about her in his memoir, ‘The Soundtrack of My Life.’ Specifically, that she’s a sobbing mess who doesn’t know anything about anything, but especially about music.
In response to her passion-filled missive, Davis wrote one of his own on Twitter, claiming he had everything in his book fact-checked. By five different sources.
Therefore, Clarkson saying he’s wrong is wrong because she’s wrong. At least until Kelly comes back with another response telling Davis he is, in fact, more wrong. This argument has the potential to reach ‘Inception’ levels of confusing.
As anyone who has read “The Soundtrack of My Life” knows, I think Kelly Clarkson is a tremendous vocal talent and performer. In the book, I provide an in-depth look at our years together during which we shared major multi-platinum success, as well as a few creative differences. I am truly very sorry that she has decided to take issue with what I know to be an accurate depiction of our time together. Before the book was published, I had every fact checked with five independent individuals who were present on a daily basis throughout it all. The chapter as it is written was thoroughly verified by each and every one of them. I stand by the chapter as written in my book. At the same time I wish, and will always wish, Kelly’s talent and her career to soar to ever new heights.
Kelly enjoyed nearly universal support for her words, but reaction to Clive’s have thus far been mixed. This one pretty much sums up how Clarkson’s fans feel, though:
@clivedavis You mean, you had five well-paid sycophants do the fact checking for your book?Sounds reasonable…
