Kelly Clarkson has been torn down by internet trolls for the past few years now and it has to do with the fact that she has gained some weight over the last few years. And Kelly Clarkson has finally decided to speak out about it… She says that she is happy in the skin she’s in—but that wasn’t always the case.

E! News posted that 15 years ago when Clarkson was on American Idol and became an overnight sensation her first album was a success but her second album caused her a lot of stress and put her under immense pressure to lose weight and look as “skinny” as her peers. The “Since U Been Gone” singer, who battled bulimia in high school, knew she was fighting a losing battle. “When I was really skinny, I wanted to kill myself. I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life,” she says in Attitude magazine. “But no one cared because aesthetically you make sense.”

Clarkson, who was signed to Clive Davis’ RCA Records at the time, calls it a “very dark time” in her career. “I thought the only way out was quitting. I, like, wrecked my knees and my feet, because all I would do is put in headphones and run,” she says. “I was at the gym all the time.”

So things haven’t always been easy for Kelly Clarkson, she has always had an issue with how people saw her and her weight, she fought bulimia in high school and now, she is finally happy with where she is at. “I don’t obsess about my weight, which is probably one of the reasons why other people have such a problem with it. There are just some people who are born skinny and with a great metabolism–that is not me,” Clarkson told Redbook two years ago. “I wish I had a better metabolism. But someone else probably wishes they could walk into a room and make friends with everyone like I can. You always want what someone else has.”
