Kelly Clarkson Accused Of Abuse For Spanking Children

Kelly Clarkson Accused Of Abuse For Spanking Children

ABC/Randy HolmesThanks to the wonders of the social media, we now know that Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo and pop star Kelly Clarkson are big fans of each other.

Country music's dearest cousin, Kelly Clarkson, is that "Idol", and her answer is incredibly honest, thoughtful and heartfelt.

When asked what it's like being a mother, she replied, "They are challenging". "I warn her. I'm like, 'Hi, I'm gonna spank you on your bottom if you don't stop right now". "I'm from the South, ya'll, so we get spankings", the three-time Grammy victor continued.

The singer said that her parents spanked her when she was a child.

"My mum would call the principal if I ever ended up in the principal's office and give permission for her to spank me".

And Kelly had previously admitted she was left feeling "humiliated" when her over-zealous reaction - in which she screamed "Oh my god that's Meryl!" - to meeting Meryl was shown on television.

Nonetheless, she was still drawn to The Voice: "It literally does come back to those blind auditions that really separates everything and it means something to me because I think that's who I represent, those people in this industry", she said.

She also said that her parents spanked her as a kid, and she turned out well. "I was like, 'I love y'all too!'" "I feel fine about it, and I do that as well". And they teach me. One poster said that spanking is "proven to be detrimental to kids", while others said that it was simply "wrong" and perpetuates "physical fear tactics". "If you have questions about disciplining your children, talk with your pediatrician".

"Good for her, parents today do not discipline their kinds and that's why there are a bunch of entitled brats running around the world who think they can get away with anything", another reader wrote.
