When it comes to music, you would think that most artists would remember the lyrics of their most popular songs– especially if they wrote the songs themselves. But Kelly Clarkson is here to prove that it’s not that easy. At all.
Kelly was quizzed on her own song lyrics with Cosmopolitan and as it turns out, she has a really hard time remembering her own song lyrics, despite the fact that she wrote most of them herself. She went head-to-head with her self-proclaimed no. 1 fan, Jason Ikeler, and he pretty much schooled her.
From her oldest hits like “Sober” to some of her newest (and most popular) songs, she really had a hard time recalling the words unless she tried to sing them. Meanwhile, it was pretty much a breeze for Jason– he could even name the albums the songs appeared on. She was in awe that he was able to finish out her lyrics for “Never Again.”
You wrote me in a letter//
You couldn’t say it right to my face//
Well, give me that Sunday school answer//
Repent yourself away//
“Repent yourself away? I’m such a Sunday school kid. Whatever,” she said. Same.
