Kelly Clarkson Shuts Down Rumors of Feud With Carrie Underwood Once and For All


“American Idol” alums Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood have a lot in common— but for reasons we may never understand, people think the two have a long-standing feud, a rumor they’ve both attempted to squash at various points. So, when the opportunity presented itself for Kelly to get a picture with Carrie at the Radio Disney Music Awards, she wasn’t going to let the moment pass her by. 

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight following the awards, Kelly shared that she purposefully grabbed Carrie for a picture on the red carpet.

“Everybody always tries to pit me and Carrie against each other,” Kelly said. “So, when I saw her I was like, ‘You know what? Let’s just end this right now and get a picture together because we are never in the same place.’ And, like, it never happens. And people always try to put it together like we’re enemies. And I’m like, ‘We don’t even know each other well enough to be enemies.'” 

Well, one way to shut down a rumor!
