Kelly Clarkson ‘Boyle critics are vicious’

Kelly Clarkson has spoken out in defence of Britain’s Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle.

The ‘I Do Not Hook Up’ star, who won the first series of American Idol, admitted to GMTV that she empathised with Boyle because of their similar backgrounds.

“She’s from a small town, I’m from a smaller town, it takes time to be like, ‘Wow, some people are really mean’,” she explained.

“But you have to focus on the people that are really positive around you.”

She added: “I think every person who goes through this – right at the beginning it’s very hard, it’s hard on you. Because people can be vicious, I mean especially with her. I’ve heard nothing but horrible things people say about her.”

Clarkson previously admitted to “bawling” when she first heard Boyle’s “beautiful” rendition of ‘I Dreamed A Dream’ from Les Miserables
