In a world where people can hide behind their screens and fire off scathing comments without having to show their faces, it helps to maintain a sense of humor. It seems to help for Kelly Clarkson, at least.
According to Glamour, the singer tweeted about the Fourth of July and thanked those in the armed forces for their service — a tweet a troll decided to respond to with a “You’re fat” comment.
While uncalled for, Glamour says Clarkson retweeted the comment and added her own: “….and still fucking awesome,” she wrote, complete with an emoji sticking out its tongue.
Now THAT’s how you shut someone down on social media.
When eight top female singers unite to record one song, you know it’s for a good reason — and First Lady Michelle Obama was able to convene the powerhouses for a very special project ahead of her SXSW appearance.
According to TIME, the First Lady released a song titled, “This Is For My Girls,” on Wednesday, March 16 just before her SXSW Music Keynote Conversation. The song, penned by legendary songwriter Diane Warren, features not only singers like Kelly Clarkson and Lea Michele, but also Missy Elliott, Zendaya, Janelle Monaé, Jada Grace, Kelly Rowland and Chloe x Halle.
Done in a collaboration with AOL’s Makers series, TIME says that the track aims to “promote her Let Girls Learn initiative, which helps provide access to education to the estimated 62 million girls around the world without schooling.”
All proceeds from the track will be donated to the Peace Corps Let Girls Learn Fund, which aids in giving “adolescent girls get the secondary education they deserve.”
