Kelly Clarkson will take a break from defending her politics on Twitter to perform on Saturday Night Live this weekend, her third time appearing on the late-night show. The pop star will bust out her Stronger singles “Mr. Know It All” and “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” on the episode, which will be hosted by Charles Barkley, but don’t expect to see her in any digital shorts — the woman is just too busy.

“I’m a three-peat! I’ve made it,” Kelly said to MTV. “It’s a fun environment. You don’t feel like you’re working… Everybody here is nice to people who aren’t famous. You know what I’m saying? They’re nice to my makeup artist, my hair guy … I hate people who are just nice to famous people.”

Unfortunately, Kelly says she won’t be appearing in any sketches due to scheduling, but hey, we’ll always have this gem from 2005, featuring a way-blonde Clarkson pretending to be blind while singing “One Moment In Time”:
