Do NOT make Kelly Clarkson mad!

Wow! Have ya heard Kelly's new single, "Never Again?"

What happened to that cute lil' Kelly Clarkson, the one I voted for like a million times on the first season of "American Idol?"

(Here's Kelly in happier days. I actually had a friend who's a girl who said that she thought Kelly had a "pig face" back then! I totally disagree.)

So here's the Cliffs Notes version of Kelly's new song: Some guy dumps Kelly and breaks her heart. (How could he?! Look how cute she is!) So she sings about it, and she is not happy about it!

Just look at some of the lyrics from "Never Again..."

Does it hurt to know I'll never be there?/Be it sucks to see my face everywhere
It was you who chose to end it like you did/I was the last to know you knew
exactly what you would do
Don't say you simply lost your way/She may believe you, but I never will

I know, right??? Ouch!
Bitter ... table for one!

It's kinda like Alanis' "You Oughta Know," but a little bit tamer. (And can you believe that song was supposed to be about Dave Coulier?! Yes, Joey Gladstone from TV's "Full House." How did he ever get someone like her??? But I digress...)

Not that Kelly is the only "AI" alum to take a walk on the bitter side.

Have ya listened to "Before He Cheats" by Carrie Underwood (she's the cutie on the left) or "Over It" by last year's runner-up, Katherine McPhee (the hottie below)? They're all about the break-up.

What's the deal with all the "AI" girls getting all dumped on? I mean, want to hear them singing the happy songs — remember "A Moment Like This" and "Inside Your Heaven?" — and not crooning all about the bitterness. I like to think of my "AI" singers as happy, girl-next-doors, not actual people with real feelings and emotions.

Yeah, I know they're just singing. But still, it kinda ruins that cheery image in my head.

Maybe it's just me!
