Kelly Clarkson: Unexpected feminist of the week.

Apparently Clarkson has spoken out about her experiences with sexist music executives and their blatant disapproval of her writing her own music because she’s a young woman:

“Everybody doesn’t like me writing all the time, no matter how many No. 1’s you write. It’s clearly like yelling at a brick wall….It’s because I’m a woman — because I’m a young woman. I literally heard someone say it [during a conference call]. They didn’t know I was on the phone. Like, really? We’re living in what century? I hung up. I was like, I can’t even address that. ‘Cause that was the most ignorant thing I’ve ever heard.”

In the meantime, she just won a Song of the Year award for, yes, a song she wrote herself. Take that.
