Don’t jump to any conclusions. Clarkson isn’t jumping on Clive’s case because he came out as bisexual. Apparently, there’s a few things in Davis’ new memoir, The Soundtrack of My Life, that don’t sit too well with Clarkson and she posted a message to set the record straight. Via Clarkson’s WhoSay:
So I just heard Clive Davis is releasing a memoir and spreading false information about me and my music. I refuse to be bullied and I just have to clear up his memory lapses and misinformation for myself and for my fans. It feels like a violation. Growing up is awesome because you learn you don’t have to cower to anyone – even Clive Davis.
First, he says I burst into “hysterical sobbing” in his office when he demanded “Since You Been Gone” be on my album. Not true at all. His stories and songs are mixed up. I did want more guitars added to the original demo and Clive did not. Max, Luke and I still fought for the bigger sound and we prevailed and I couldn’t be more proud of the life of that song. I resent him dampening that song in any way.
