Kelly Clarkson has always been a woman who speaks her mind…and she didn’t hold back in a YouTube Q&A with some NOT very nice things about the country music industry!

When asked about where Country music is at these days sonically, she had some tough words for the artists out there. She said she isn’t a fan of what they’re doing with “the rock and the rap crap” and she thinks no one likes it!
Lots of stories lately are surfacing about Brad Pitt and how he was attending AA after his split from Angelina Jolie.

It was actually really freeing just to expose the ugly sides of yourself. There’s great value in that.”
