The Houston Galleria got a brand new Microsoft Store this month, and patriotic Texan Kelly Clarkson performed at the retailer’s grand opening on Saturday. Thankfully a fan was there with their flip cam to capture all the action. One bit of news that surfaced from the event is that Kelly apparently said her new single will be out in August now, and her album — originally slated for a September release — has now been pushed to October. Booooo! Watch below.
The Prophet Blog points to this Clarkson fan site which notes, “According to the news during the Microsoft Concert, Kelly said the new single will come out in August.” It’s also mentioned that Kelly tweeted that her album will be out in October, though we checked and there doesn’t seem to be any such notation on her Twitter account.
At any rate, the Houston Press posted a comical review of Kelly’s Microsoft gig:
“Kelly came to the stage wearing a tight, black-and-white striped dress. The Internet had told us she was fat; she’s not. She’s down-South thick and it’s beautiful. The Texas native mentioned how happy she was to be back home, and opened with one of her many radio hits, ‘Miss Independent.’ Really, though, as the set went on we began to remember just how many hits she’s had.”
Note that KC’s DJ had to put a black X over the Apple symbol on his MacBook Pro, given that it was a Microsoft event.
