Kelly Clarkson is opening up about her recent weight loss. The singer and Voice judge reveal the secret behind her impressive slim-down.
The 36-year-old has been looking noticeably svelter on the latest season of The Voice, showing off her body in a variety of eye-catching outfits. Fans took note, leading everybody to wonder how she managed to do it.
Clarkson opened up about all things fitness and fashion with ET at a press conference on Monday, for the season finale of the hit singing competition.
When asked about her secret to looking great, Clarkson had a characteristically candid response.
"I have to shout out my whole glam squad. I literally hired Harry Potter and SPANX, it's all like a sausage," she joked.
Clarkson hasn't been shy about sharing her weight loss journey with fans. She took to Instagram earlier this week to encourage them to vote for her team member on the show. Her post received a deluge of comments about how great her body looked.
The mother-of-two posted a photo seemingly taken in her dressing room, where she posed with her hands on her hips, smiling happily, in a colorful flower blouse and high-waisted black leather skirt.
"You are gorgeous and getting so skinny!" gushed one fan, while another asked for weight loss tips.
The singer stunned at Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards, in a black Christian Siriano gown with an eye-catching thigh-high slit.
The star has dropped about 40 pounds this year alone. Last year, Clarkson opened up about the pressure to stay skinny even while she was a contestant on American Idol, which she won in 2002.
On her recent track "Whole Lotta Woman", Clarkson sings about how Texas women do it better. She also compares herself, in the body positive anthem, to a warm biscuit and a pot of grits.
The Voice judge has never been shy about discussing her body image issues, and the difficulty with having her appearance torn apart all the time.
She confessed in a 2015 interview to not having a fast metabolism but pointed out that there's much more to her than looks, including an ability to make friends with pretty much everyone.
Clarkson had a tearful plea for gun control at the Billboard Awards, which followed the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas. The Voice judge appealed for more action regarding the controversial issue.
The Texas native, who hosted the show on Sunday, explained that she couldn't simply stand by and only have a moment of silence for the 10 victims slain in the shocking massacre.
"I'm so sick of 'moment of silence.' It's not working. Why don't we do a moment of action? Why don't we do a moment of change? Why don't we change what's happening? Because it's horrible," Clarkson said.
