Not to quote Taylor Swift’s Red tour shirt, but it’s safe to say that Kelly Clarkson has got a lot going on right now. From her cross-country move to the fifth season of her talk show and the release of her chart-topping tenth studio album, the 41-year-old mom of two is truly having a moment right now. With plenty of on-screen appearances promoting her various new endeavors, fans have also been enthralled by the singer’s new look. Having lost a lot of weight throughout her career, Clarkson’s weight loss journey is one she’s been candid about, but as of late, her even slimmer figure has fans buzzing over the star’s confident, fierce new look.
Clarkson’s Weight Loss Journey and New Look Transformation
Clarkson has been in the eyes of the public for quite literally decades, ever since she made her big break as the winner of American Idol in 2002. Now, more than 20 years, 10 albums and 2 kids later, Clarkson has had quite the journey. Back in 2018, fans first began to notice that the singer had appeared to lose weight, and Clarkson was more than open about her journey towards a healthier life. The singer admitted to being diagnosed with a thyroid condition back in 2006, and had struggled with the side effects of the disease compounded with the stressors of every day life.
After discovering a clean, organic diet and going off her thyroid medication, Clarkson lost an incredible amount of weight all on her own. “I know the industry loves the weight gone, but for me it wasn’t [about] the weight,” Clarkson confessed to Hoda Kotb back in 2018. “For me, it was, ‘I’m not on my medicine anymore.'”
Nowadays, the star is slimmer than ever, and has been wow-ing fans in chic, black ensembles and sporting her healthiest, happiest self. Though we don’t know just how the singer has went about her more recent weight loss endeavors, while rocking lengthy blonde strands, a strong physique and a glowing complexion all over social media and television as of late, it’s clear that Clarkson is truly in her element, and we can’t wait to see what she does next.
