    Kelly Clarkson's Opinion On 24 Random Things

    "On fleek?! Is that... is that English?!"

    by , ,

    Kelly Clarkson is currently in Australia promoting her new album, Piece By Piece, and its first single "Heartbeat Song". We sat down with Kelly while she was in Sydney to find out what gets her heart beating fast, and what makes it flatline.

    Sony Music

    1. Selfie sticks.

    "I love social media because it's awesome, but I think we WAY over-photograph ourselves. Says the girl who has to be photographed A SHIT-TON!" *laughs*

    2. Fifty Shades of Grey.

    "Um, I didn't like the book... I didn't mind the movie. He creeped me out a little bit! But like... she is cool. Dakota Johnson did an awesome job. I'd like to see her in more movies; she's cool."

    3. People who just text "K".

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "Oh, I don't really care if people text 'K' or 'OK' or 'yeah'... I don't care. Just respond; that's nice!"

    4. Elaborate promposals.

    "Oh, that's sweet. I think there's something said for courting a girl, I'm just saying. It doesn't have to be like, elaborate and dramatic, but just something sweet to show that it really matters instead of just being like *apathetically* 'wanna go out?' We're worth more than that, so work harder!"

    5. Twitter feuds.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "Twitter feuds! *laughs* I mean, just saying it sounds silly, right?! I just wanna punch people in the face sometimes and be like 'Irrelevant!'"

    6. People who don't have Facebook.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "I mean, my sister doesn't have Facebook and I think she has a better life for it! Just because I think people are online A LOT, and I love being online, I love the connection, but sometimes I feel like we should turn technology off and just like... enjoy life. As I'm... speaking to you from a camera." *laughs*

    7. The phrase "on fleek".

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "What? Is that... English? *laughs* OK, this is when you know you're old, people! When people have like, phrases you don't even understand. My step-daughter does that, she's like 'no, you're saying it wrong!' and I'm like 'I don't care! You're not even saying a real word, I think I win, here!'"

    8. Ghosts.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "People are like, really hardcore about ghosts, and I just don’t get it. I feel like there’s enough shit to deal with in our realm, without hopping into another one."

    9. Eggplant Friday.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "I am totally going to say a big no to Eggplant Friday. Nobody wants to see that! No, save it for your private time."

    10. Waffles.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "Waffles?!! Everybody loves a waffle! doesn't mean something weird, right?! Just a waffle?! Okay. Just a waffle. I don't know if there's some weird phrase, but I like a good waffle!"

    11. Green juice.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "The only way I'll actually take kale is in a juice! ...or if it's in a finely chopped salad. Any other way, I just feel like a rabbit, like I'm eating my backyard or something."

    12. The Real Housewives.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "I've never seen an episode... and there's nothing real about... you're on camera! I've never seen the show, but I'm just gonna go ahead and call 'em all out anyway, you're on camera so it's obviously not real. Real housewives wouldn't be like 'put me on camera!' I just pissed off, like, so many countries with their own housewives. It's fine, whatever, don't buy my album! *laughs* You probably weren't gonna, anyway."

    13. Halloween.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "Oh, I love Halloween! I love dressing up, yep. My husband and I were doomsdayers last year. I think we kinda scared people, because we own guns. They weren't like, loaded! We love The Walking Dead, so we were playing off that. I realise other countries were like 'why is she carrying a gun?!' but in the south, in the States, that's not weird!"

    14. Crimped hair.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "LOOOVE! I love bringin' back the '80s! Bring back that crimped hair!"

    15. Sandals and socks.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "Oh, my God. Sandals and socks, no! Absolutely not. No."

    16. Yoga.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "Yoga, ugh. It's this thing that like, I feel like I should love and I try hard to love, but really I just feel like it's not for me! Like, it's so good, and I realise all the benefits and that I should be into it, but every time I do it, they always tell you to like, clear your mind, I can't do that! It's like, I'm incapable of the meditating part. *shrugs* To each his own."

    17. Instagram.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "I mean, it's cool, 'coz like, the whole part of me like, being in the public eye... I think if I weren't famous I probably wouldn't do all the social media stuff so much. But because I'm in the public eye, it's cool. I would've been excited, if I were a fan and got to see somebody I loved posting that they were in Sydney and doing something cool, so that's cool."

    18. Crocs.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    *laughs* "No. And I actually have no fashion sense at all, so if I say no to Crocs, I feel like we all should. If anyone is wearing Crocs in the room, I'm sorry! ...but no! 'Great pair of Crocs!', said no one ever!"

    19. Record players.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "I own like, five! We have them all over our house! I love vinyl, I think it sounds cooler. And I love old vinyl. I mean, they'll make my album, or any new album a vinyl, it sounds cool, but it's really those old, old ones... my mom gave me a bunch, and I love it."

    20. Feminism.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "I mean, if any female isn't for female rights, then... *laughs* jump off a bridge! 'Coz, what? You're not helping!"

    21. Meninism.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "What's that?! Is that a real thing?!?! They haven't had to fight for anything! Like, no! Men have always had rights and women always haven't! And we're like, fightin' to get it to be equal, still."

    22. Normcore.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "Norm... core? What is that? I am normcore! I wear jeans, and a t-shirt, and tennis shoes. [after seeing photos] Oh, no! They're still like, cool people! I'm like, Target normcore!"

    23. Pugs.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "I love dogs, I love pugs, whoever says no, like, what? Punch 'em!"

    24. Kittens.

    Anna Mendoza / BuzzFeed

    "I'm allergic, but I still love kittens. I love animals. More than humans."
