Kelly Clarkson finally reveals the truth behind her dramatic weight loss


It’s the question everyone in Hollywood (and beyond) is asking: are they using Ozempic, or aren’t they?

American Idol star and talk show host Kelly Clarkson is the latest to be accused of using the now-notorious diabetes drug to shed the kilos after a dramatic weight loss transformation.

But in a new interview with People, Clarkson said she lost weight the old-fashioned way — via diet and exercise.

“I dropped weight because I’ve been listening to my doctor — (for) a couple of years I didn’t,” she said.

“And 90 per cent of the time I’m really good at it because a protein diet is good for me anyway.

“I’m a Texas girl, so I like meat — sorry, vegetarians in the world!”

The 41-year-old single mother of two added that moving from LA to New York had helped her stay more active.

“Walking in the city is quite the workout,” she said.

“And I’m really into infrared saunas right now.

“And I just got a cold plunge because everybody wore me down.”

Clarkson said she also regularly walks her dogs in the park along with her daughter River Rose, 9, and son Remington, 7 — her children with ex-husband Brandon Blackstock.

Ozempic rumours surfaced when Clarkson shared a photograph of her slimmed-down figure in November 2023.

Fans were quick to comment on Clarkson’s Instagram post, with one declaring: “Her fans deserve to know the truth of her weight loss.”

“No way she lost that much weight that fast,” speculated another, adding: “Medication.”

“She looks great but it seems like she lost a lot of weight in like two weeks!” another person said.

Clarkson said she was following the Plant Paradox Diet by Steven Gundry, saying she was eating a more “healthy mix” of food but still indulged every now and then.

“I still splurge,” she told People.

“The other night I had a frozen yoghurt with my daughter, and it was magical.”

Speaking to Attitude magazine in 2017, Clarkson said being thin didn’t necessarily equate to happiness.

The Since U Been Gone singer said at her lowest weight she was having “dark thoughts” and was “miserable, inside and out”.

“But no one cared because aesthetically you made sense,” she said, adding she had pushed herself so hard at the gym that she had “wrecked” her knees and feet.

“All I would do is put the headphones on and run,” she said.

“I was at the gym all the time.”

Now, Clarkson is in a much better place and it seems the move from LA to New York has helped.

“I just (couldn’t) stay (in LA) anymore for my mental heath, for me and my kids,” she told People.

“They weren’t doing well either.

“For the past few years I’d just been showing up and smiling and doing what I’m supposed to do, but you can only compartmentalise for so long until you break.”

She said she was enjoying rediscovering New York, visiting museums and hanging out with her kids.

Asked what advice she would give her 15-year-old self, Clarkson answered: “It’s going to get easier.”

“I’ve always been that kind of person that’s a little hard on oneself,” she said.

“I’d be like, It’s not going to happen anytime soon, but eventually it’ll get easier.

“Around 41, you’re really going to get your s*** together.”
