Kelly Clarkson has said she wanted to kill herself when she was at her thinnest

Kelly Clarkson has said that she wanted to kill herself while her career was soaring in the mid-noughties. In an interview with Attitude Magazine, the American singer said that while she was at her skinniest she was at her unhappiest. ‘When I was really skinny, I wanted to kill myself. I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life.’ Clarkson said that none of the executives surrounding her was willing to help because ‘aesthetically you make sense.’

The singer said that she was exercising so much that she almost ruined her body. ‘I like wrecked my knees and my feet because all I would do is put in headphones and run. I was at the gym all the time.’ However, she managed to turn her life around in 2007 when she took control of her life and stopped worrying about her appearance.

‘There’s a song on My December called Sober. There’s this line ‘picked the weeds but kept the flowers’ and I just live my life by that because you are who you surround yourself with.’ She also spoke about the need to surround yourself with positive people. ‘I was around some really negative people, and I got out of it because I had a lot of great people there, too. It was a case of turning around, facing them and walking toward the light.’
