Kelly Clarkson's Response to Mean Girl Tweet Calling Her 'Fat' Is Awesome

kelly Clarkson hits back at fat shamers In the real world, when it comes to losing the baby weight after giving birth, many moms subscribe to the "nine months up, nine months down," theory, acknowledging that it's going to take a little while and a lot of hard work to get back to pre-baby shape. But in Hollywood, it seems like new moms have about nine minutes to skinny down to their original weight. Well, singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson is having none of it. The new mom was recently attacked over her figure and had the ultimate comeback.

Columnist Kate Hopkins, aka "the most hated woman in Britain," had this to say about the original American Idol:

Yikes! So just how did 9-month-old River Rose's mom respond to that? With a quick and classy:

She's tweeted something nasty about me? That's because she doesn't know me. I'm awesome! It doesn't bother me. It's a free world. Say what you will.

Wow, Clarkson is totally living the lyrics to her hit song. What doesn't kill you does make you stronger! And is there anything more empowering and attractive than self-confidence? The 32-year-old's reaction is totally inspiring for moms everywhere.

She continued:

I've just never cared what people think. It's more if I'm happy and I'm confident and feeling good, that's always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family — I don't seek out any other acceptance.

We love that Clarkson is happy and content exactly as she is. What a perfect example to set for her young daughter as well as the multitude of new moms who beat themselves up for years because they struggle to get back to their pre-baby weight.

Every woman's body changes after giving birth, like it or not. And if you don't love the idea of spending hours in a gym or starving yourself, you shouldn't be made to feel bad about that. Many new moms would rather spend that time with their new baby, while others need to return to work to support their families. No matter what their circumstances are, their bodies are their business.

What makes Clarkson's response so awesome is that's so refreshing to hear from a woman who's perfectly fine with being herself rather than someone else's idea of what she should look like. Good for her!
