In one of the segments not shown on television this week during the Battle Rounds, Kelly Clarkson and Team Blake contestant Charlotte Sometimes shared a moment together. In a telephone call yesterday, Charlotte admitted that her and the pop superstar were crying as they spoke about how other people’s opinions effected them:
“I’m such a big fan of Kelly Clarkson. I think she’s so awesome, so she really just taught me like, you know, when we had our moment together when it wasn’t shown on TV — we had this moment where we both crying and talking about like just people’s opinions about us.”
Charlotte explains a bit further as the pair talked about body image. Charlotte admits that she was anorexic growing up, and she bonded with Kelly over this fact:
“And our bodies and completely way that, you know, didn’t know I went through. But I was anorexic all growing up and when I first — my first record came out everyone was kind of like trashing me and calling me fat and all these things.”
It looks like those few minutes with Kelly affected the singer, who says that Kelly gave her the confidence to be herself and be confident in who she was as a person before hitting the stage:
“She just kind of really made me feel comfortable in my skin. And just gave me confidence and just made me feel like it was okay to be myself and that was good enough. And I just – I’m just so thankful that I got to have that conversation with her.”
The Voice continues next Monday night at 8 pm EST. Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert both return to help mentor members of Team Blake Shelton. See who else moves on to the live rounds next week and stay tuned to Keepin’ it Country for all your up-to-date and exclusive Team Blake news.
