So which American Idol winner performed at your office Christmas party? Chances are it wasn’t Kelly Clarkson—unless you’re employed by Atlanta’s Q100-FM station.
In addition to belting out some of her hits for the Q100 clockwatchers recently, Clarkson also let slip some info about her next album, which she’s already cracking away at.
“We’re already working on it but it’s probably not going to hit until, like, the fourth quarter of next year—around Christmas next year,” she told the station. “There’s still some, like, singer/songwriter stuff [on the album], but there’s… I don’t know. It’s almost like Garbage-meets-pop-meets-Muse. It’s a little different.”
Oooh, Garbage—our lives really have sucked without them. Considering that the website for the long dormant four-piece band has only been updated three times since 2007, it’d be swell to hear sultry Shirley Manson-type snarling atop some sexy beats once again.
“I don’t know how it’s going to end up. Who knows?” Kelly warns, however. “It always ends up being something completely different.”
Hmmm. “Completely different” from Muse and Garbage has us thinking Ryan Tedder, who told Idolator last week, “[Kelly's] attorney or somebody from her camp told somebody from my camp that she’s willing to work with me again… if we work together in the future, then I will be a happy camper about it and let bygones be bygones.”
At any rate, Clarkson may have another Grammy propped up on her bookshelf by the time her fifth studio album—whatever it’s going to sound like—finally surfaces, as All I Ever Wanted was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album earlier this month.
