Mr. Know-it-all? Kelly Clarkson endorses Ron Paul

It’s easy to like Kelly Clarkson. The first American Idol doesn’t try to change her image to simply conform to the stereotypical pop star lifestyle and look. She’s sweet to her fans, spends a lot of time with her family and keeps her pop music friendly and upbeat.

“My life would suck without you” Come on man, that’s an emotional plea that Shakespeare wishes existed during his time on this Earth.

Yes, Kelly Clarkson is one of the more likeable figures in music….

and apparently Libertarian.

Entertainment Weekly reported that the Texas Native tweeted her endorsement for current Iowa frontrunner, Ron Paul. Take a read.

“I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last republican nomination and no one gave him a chance,” she wrote of the oft-lampooned Libertarian. “If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t.”

Yeah, Ron Paul politics don’t fly with liberal leaning, younger politicos. Clarkson was assaulted with a barrage of negative replies. Mostly due to those newsletters, we read about earlier today.

To her defense Kelly is a pop star, not a political strategist and she stands strongly by her endorsement. Hopefully the normally well-behaved songstress can Breakaway (Yeah, I know) from this controversy.

Clarkson joins movie star Vince Vaughn in Paul’s celebrity endorsement list.

Alright, regardless of whether Ron Paul wins Iowa or not, he’s still a longshot for the nomination but could do damage running as a third party.

Would this make Kelly Clarkson, Miss Independent?

I can hear the boos through the computer screen. Goodnight!
