Pop music superstar Kelly Clarkson addressed the fat shaming she's endured during her 13-year career last week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

After chatting with Ellen DeGeneres about her new CD and adorable baby daughter, River Rose, The American Idol alum shared what it's like to be on the receiving end of so much criticism due to her body.

Said Clarkson:

“Well it hurts your feelings more if it’s someone else that you like. You know, if it’s you you’re just like whatever. I think what hurts my feelings for people is that I’ll have a meet and greet after the show and a girl whose like bigger than me will be in the meet and greet and be like ‘wow, if they think you’re big I must be so fat to them.’ And it’s like you’re just who you are. We are who we are. Whatever size. Like. And it doesn’t mean that we’re gonna be that forever.”
