Kelly Clarkson Is Hitting the Studio to Work on Her ‘Very Different’ Album
“Extra” special correspondent Hilaria Baldwin hung out with Kelly Clarkson at our H&M studios in NYC's Times Square, where she revealed she is working on a new album!
Kelly, who has sold over 20 million albums, teased, “A month and a half ago, we started working on it and it's very different… very soulful, very urban, very different.”
Along with the music, Kelly has also written a new children's book, “River Rose and the Magical Lullaby.” The main character is named after her very own daughter River, 2. As for how the idea came about, Kelly explained, “I'm like a normal mom. I just wrote it for my kids. I wrote these little stories for her that ended up being these little children's books.”
Kelly even wrote a lullaby for River that is featured in the book. She joked, “Because I'm that tool artist who writes sons for her kids.”
Though Kelly has a powerhouse voice that has won her three Grammys, River is not all that impressed. Kelly shared, “She will be like, 'Sing this, sing that!' and then literally, mid-song, while I'm putting her to bed, will put her hand on my face and go, 'Bye'… I'm like, “Wait! People pay for this.'"
