Oh, sure — there is a faceless fella we occasionally see Clarkson standing in front of and singing to with a vindictive look gleaming in her eyes. But the anti-rumor theme becomes crystal clear at the end of the Justin Francis-directed clip, when the iHeartRadio Music Festival performer tears the articles off the wall to reveal a road outside.
The singer steps through the barrier of bad press with her suitcase, letting us know that her life would not suck without all the unwanted attention. And, just like the song itself — which serves as the lead single off Kelly’s upcoming album Stronger — things become hopeful and upbeat for the First Lady Of American Idol once more.
Overall, it’s a great visual that matches the tone and feel of the song perfectly.
What do you think of Kelly’s latest video? Let us, uh, know it all below.
