Kelly Clarkson recently opened up about her past struggles that brought her to the darkest moment of her life. In an interview with Attitude magazine, the "American Idol" winner was quoted saying, "When I was skinny I wanted to kill myself," after she discussed how she was compelled to lose weight in order to maintain a certain image.

Her statement has earned mixed reactions from fans and critics alike, with some of them suggesting that the singer-songwriter contemplated suicide because of her weight. Hence, the artist had to clarify her previous comments and reposted a couple of articles that claim her struggles were caused by her weight loss.

Kelly clarifies comments on her past suicidal thoughts

The 35-year-old artist took to social media to set the record straight that her past suicidal thoughts have nothing to do with her weight. She added that she never felt miserable because she was pressured to be thin or to maintain a certain figure.

Kelly Clarkson went on to clarify that her weight loss was just a result of her struggles back then, although no one realized she was going through something since she appeared healthy.

Although she has always been the favorite target of body-shamers, Kelly Clarkson has found no problem with her current look and weight. In fact, the singer-songwriter had a flawless comeback against a critic after they called her fat on social media.

Despite this kind of comment about her weight, the "Since U Been Gone" artist has become more confident about her looks thanks to her husband, Brandon Blackstock, whom she said has made her feel good about herself.

"I already am a confident woman -- I don't think that's a secret. But I love being with somebody who is unafraid of making you feel sexy," she mused.

The couple, who just celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary, share two beautiful daughters. After they tied the knot, the singer-songwriter also became a stepmother to her husband's two children from his previous marriage.

First 'Idol' winner to release her eighth studio album 'Meaning of Life'

The "American Idol" winner has also dropped the first two singles off her album, titled "Love So Soft" and "Move You," within the last month.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the singer-songwriter named Michelle Obama as the inspiration behind her song "Go High." She specifically mentioned the former First Lady's speech, "When they go low, we go high," as the catchphrase that drove her to come up with a relatable song.

"Everyone relates to that. No one has gone through life without relating to at some point having to take the high road," she explained.
