    All Kelly Ever Wanted

    Kelly Clarkson’s back with a determination to get her music onto everyone’s iPod.

    Her newest single “My Life Would Suck Without You” sprang from 97 to the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100 list, making it the largest jump to the number one spot ever, according to the Chicago Tribune. It also sold more than 290,000 downloads in a week. “My Life Would Suck Without You” also became the singer’s first single to top the charts since her first single, 2002’s “A Moment Like This.”

    Clarkson recently had a laugh by poking fun at herself for the new album’s cover. “It’s very colorful and they have definitely photoshopped the c— out of me but I don’t care, haha! Whoever she is, she looks great,” she posted in her blog. And Clarkson certainly does look great. The cover embodies her attitude perfectly and the songs on it reflect her sassiness well.

    This album is more diverse than her other albums for the reason that no two songs sound like the other.

    “Whyyawannabringmedown” is one song that you would not expect to hear on a pop album. Clarkson breaks down her voice on this track to try and match the grungier sound of the band behind her. Even though she tries to make it sound like she has an ’80s hair-metal voice, her vocals are still distinct as ever.

    “If I Can’t Have You” is completely opposite from this song because it has a disco/techno dance beat. She also includes powerful ballads on this CD, such as “Already Gone” and “Save You.” Every song on this album is labeled as pop, but once you listen to it you will have your own ideas of what they should be labeled as.

    Clarkson has come along way from her “American Idol” win in 2002. Although some of her other albums have struggled to sell, this one certainly won’t. This is her best album to date, showing the many different sides of Ms. Clarkson, and satisfying many music lovers’ sweet teeth.
