Clarkson slams "obnoxious" misquotes

Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson has slammed a UK magazine for misquoting her.

The Since U Been Gone singer was featured on the cover of The Mirror's Celebs on Sunday's November 21 issue.

She says the publication's depiction of her is completely inaccurate.

Next to Kelly's photo read the quote: "No one on the planet should be as famous as me".

Branding the lack of context "obnoxious", Kelly took to her WhoSay blog and accused editors of having "twisted" her words.

Kelly also denied claims made in the article she has suffered from an eating disorder.

"I have never had anorexia nor did I ever say 'no one should be as famous as me," she wrote, clarifying, "I said in the interview, when asked about fame, that I have no desire to be as famous as Britney or Madonna. I said that kind of fame was too much for any person and that I have experienced a portion of what they deal with and that I didn't handle that well and I'm happy where I'm at in my career."

Kelly continued to complain about the article on Twitter,

Fans and other stars, including Jordin Sparks, stepped up in her defence.

Kelly had one final note for the magazine's editors.

"I love when people take what you say and twist it to make you sound obnoxious and arrogant.... nice job Mirror," she wrote.
