Kelly Clarkson to The Voice Contestant: You Said WHAT About Me?!?

Kelly Clarkson is not one to stir up controversy.

She’s not one to engage in any feuds or get herself involved in really any scandals at all.

But the singer has felt the need to speak out against an accusation no one could have seen coming.

On last night’s edition of The Voice, an aspiring artist named Molly Stevens was shown the door… and she wasn’t happy about it.

The contestant, who is openly gay, wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post that she was upset by a comparison Clarkson made during the battle rounds.

For those who missed the episode, Kelly said Stevens reminded her of the Indigo Girls and Melissa Etheridge, which Stevens referred to as a “labeling trap” and “small minded.”

This is what she wrote in its entirety:

While I’m extremely honored to be in that category of talent, I do believe that comment did us all a disservice and only threw us into a labeling trap

It felt small minded to me and exactly what I feel we need to bring attention to the world. I am a singer-songwriter who happens to be gay.

And so it @melissa_etheridge and @indigogirlsmusic… But it’s a common stereotype that happens too often. People put us in boxes.

How about for today I am just Molly Stevens and you be you too.

As you can see above, Stevens also thanked her preacher for giving her the courage to make this statement.

But it’s not a statement Clarkson believes she deserves.

“Wow. This really bums me out,” the original American Idol Tweeted upon being informed of Stevens’ critique.

She continued, in her own strong defense:

“I need everyone to hear me and hear ALL OF THE WORDS I SAY.

“I compared Molly to Melissa Etheridge, Patty Griffin (a name that was left out conveniently), and the Indigo Girls purely because of the rasp in her voice and that she’s an amazing storyteller.”

kelly writes back

We tend to believe Kelly.

She’s never shown any hints of homophobia or of any kind of “small-minded” thinking.

She’s always seemed incredibly open and laid back and accepting, never really changing at all through the years, even as her fame sky-rocketed to very impressive levels.

Before this issue was brought up, the only thing Clarkson had ever gotten into trouble for was admitting she sometimes spanks her kids.

And even the reaction to that remark seemed a tad overblown.

What do you think of this so-called scandal?

Is it even a scandal?

Did Clarkson misspeak?

Or did Stevens just react in a bitter manner that she later thought better of upon deleting her comment and this really isn’t a story at all?

Sound off now!

Bekah Martinez: The Bachelor Contestant Listed on Missing Persons Report, Found on Show

Sometimes we see The Bachelor spoilers coming ahead of time. Other times not so much, such as in the bizarre case of Bekah Martinez.

No, we’re not talking about her age (so damn young!) but the fact that she was on a Missing Persons List prior to being found …

… on The Bachelor.

Yes, she was just removed from a missing persons list in California after someone recognized her from the hit show, according to reports.

The strange saga unfolded after the North Coast Journal asked if readers knew any of 35 people declared missing in Humboldt County.

One did.

Acting on a tip from a member of Bachelor Nation, the publication compared Martinez’s Instagram photos to her missing person’s photo.

At that point, they reached out to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office, where officials reached out to her using her phone number on file.

It worked. After speaking to Bekah Martinez, officials confirmed that she was indeed not missing, and she was removed from the list.

According to the sheriff’s office, the now-infamous Martinez was reported missing by her mother at about 1:06 a.m. on November 18.

The mom hadn’t heard from her since November 12; Martinez last told her she was planning on working at a marijuana farm in the area.

Martinez’s mother told deputies she she asked Bekah to come home; Bekah refused, and said she would see her in 7-8 days.

At the time, Martinez told her mom that she was near Eureka, Calif., an area about 45 minutes from any known marijuana farm.

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office attempted to contact Martinez and others associated with her, receiving no response.

The case went to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division, where a deputy contacted Martinez’s mother.

According to Martinez’s mother, Bekah had contacted her late in the afternoon on November 18, stating that she was headed home.

As of December 12, no one had heard from her, and deputies were not able to make direct contact with Martinez after that point.

Thus, she was entered into the Missing and Unidentified Persons System and not removed until The Bachelor fan’s sighting.

Bekah may have left her mom hanging, but she’s been active on Twitter and Instagram throughout the time she’s been missing.

On September 17, long before she disappeared, she posted that she was “giving up” her phone and social media for weeks.

This was for The Bachelor.

She resumed posting November 23 after she finished filming (incidentally, if you want to know who will win The Bachelor, follow the link). 

Bekah addressed her Missing Persons status on Twitter: “MOM. how many times do I have to tell you I don’t get cell service on The Bachelor??”

“Honestly the scariest thing about this story is that my efforts to conceal The Worst Drivers License Photo Of All Time have been thwarted.”

Clearly she’s not taking this too seriously.

As for the marijuana farm component of this story, Northern California has long been known as fertile ground for the product.

Now that it’s legal, gigs on the farms are seen as a good way to make money, but often times are in remote places with no cell service.

Bekah Tweets

According to officials, many of the farms don’t have permits and are still illegal, and many who go to work on them don’t come back.

“It’s something that we’ve been battling with for years,” said one local official to People. “It’s actually a huge problem here.”

“I’m sure that her mother had a legitimate concern … women can be held against their will, or forced to do things they don’t want to do.”

Sounds even worse than being on The Bachelor.
