Kelly Clarkson isn’t holding back when it comes to the current state of country music.
While the singer, 37, is busy gearing up to premiere her upcoming daytime talk show “The Kelly Clarkson Show”, she kicked off a YouTube Q&A session to promote the series.
After playing a quick game of explaining slang terms like “shooketh” and “spill the tea, sis”, Clarkson landed on “farm emo,” which she thought meant “a very sad country person.”
After learning the correct definition, a term some people use to describe country music, Clarkson launched into a rant about country music.
“You know why? Because country music doesn’t sound country anymore. So they’re making up terms to be like, ‘This is country.’ Country music is gone. I don’t know who’s making it, but there might be like four people,” said Clarkson.
“I don’t want to feel like I’m at some weird rock show where they start rapping,” she explained. “Why are you rapping in country music? I don’t understand it. I mean, let’s be progressive, I get it, but come on. And it’s not just one. It’s a lot of y’all. And it’s bad.”
Clarkson then explained why she thinks it’s not the same, “Y’all don’t play people with boobs either, [but] it’s fine. ‘Oh you got boobs, you’re not a man, get out of here.’ What happened? Do you want me to go off on how many women were so monumental in my [career]?”
She added: “What is happening in country music? This is what’s happening. Y’all aren’t playing country music anymore.”
Meanwhile, Clarkson is busy gearing up for her premiere episode next week with Dwayne Johnson, who filled in for Kevin Hart was unable to appear after a serious car accident.
