Kelly Clarkson Pokes Fun at Tabloid Rumors of a Feud Between Herself and Carrie Underwood
No drama here!
Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood are no strangers to being pitted against each other, the inaugural American Idol winner, 36, is making it crystal clear that there’s no bad blood between the two superstars.
Sharing a photo on Twitter of a tabloid cover depicting a supposed feud between the pair, Clarkson shared that while she didn’t have anything against Underwood, also 36, she did have a bone to pick with whoever chose the cover images.
“Someone just sent me this & I’m like why does she get the good pic & I have the worst expression I’ve ever made w/zero muscles being used in my face ha! I officially have a feud w/whoever used this pic!” she wrote.
“At least give me a good pic if y’all are gonna be lying is all I’m sayin’,” she added.
Clarkson went on to share a silly response to a fan who came up with their own theory for why Underwood’s cover image looked great.
“Carrie didn’t get the bad pic because there is no bad pic of carrie,” the fan wrote.
“Hahaha touché,” Clarkson commented. “Well, I have PLENTY of rough ones ha! But I guess it builds character and keeps me humble this is what I tell myself.”
The two pals have been known to shut down rumors of competition between each other in the past.
Last April, the singers shared a cute exchange on Twitter over the weekend after Clarkson reacted to a ballot that asked fans to choose the “most iconic American Idol winner.” (Clarkson won the first season in 2002 and Underwood was crowned season 4 champion in 2005.)
“I think we’re both winning in life and pretty blessed! Singers, mamas, CEOs…. #AmbitiousBlondes go ahead @carrieunderwood,” The Voice coach wrote.
In addition to letting all of their fans know that she “voted” for Clarkson the first time around, Underwood went on to note that instead of making comparisons, she would rather spread the message of female empowerment.
“But seriously, I do wish more publications would just celebrate women’s success without pitting them against each other… Just my thoughts…anyway… Love ya’! Hope you’re well!” Underwood tweeted.

Clarkson previously talked about her friendship with Underwood in December 2016 when she revealed that people regularly confuse her with the country star.
“People come up to me all the time. Okay, we look nothing alike, we sound nothing alike, there’s nothing about us that’s similar, really, except we were both on Idol,” she said to Z100‘s Elvis Duran and The Morning Show.
“People are always like, ‘I love your song, ‘So Small,’ and I’m like, ‘Thank you. Thank you, I think you’re thinking I’m Carrie Underwood.’ It always happens!” Clarkson continued. “Then a girl that worked with her years ago said the same things happened to her. I think it’s because we’re both blonde and from American Idol.”
