Humpday Diversion: We *Heart* Kelly Clarkson

By Marcus Gilmer in Breaking on Feb 25, 2009 9:15PM

Dear Kelly:

We have a confession to make. Well, by "we," I mean Tankboy and I. See, we both love you. Sure, you'll find us hanging around places like the Empty Bottle and trudging around Pitchfork Fest and Lollapalooza. But we just can't shake how great you are. "Miss Independent," "Since U Been Gone," "You Found Me,"...the list of great songs you've done that we can't get out of our head goes on and on. Your newest record, All I Ever Wanted, is no different, bouncing about in all your shimmery pop glory. It's been on repeat over the last week on our iPods and stereos; it's brilliant and addictive. Sure, people call us hipsters and think we don't love anything except the indie rock. And we can kind of understand that. But we love your stuff and we don't care about "street cred."

Our lives would suck without you.


Marcus & Tankboy
