There is no better way to make a point than through the vehicle of song. Season 1 American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson is taking a shot at producer and Onerepublic member Ryan Tedder and her longtime label, RCA, in her recently leaked song "Wash, Rinse, Repeat." The song, reportedly a demo for her next album, addresses the controversy that marred "Already Gone," a single Clarkson released in 2009. The song was criticized for being eerily similar to "Halo," a Beyonce song that was released nearly a year before.
Clarkson claimed that Tedder, the man who penned both songs, simply rearranged the song and then blamed Clarkson's label. Both Tedder and the label denied that they were at fault.
"Wash, Rinse, Repeat" features these lyrics: "I can't take the pressure of new/Give me old, rip it off/Let's see if it sticks to the wall again…Does it sound familiar/Does it linger in your ear/Like something you remember from just last year?" If that isn't Clarkson taking a shot at Tedder, then slap my ass and call me Sally because I don't know what else is. It's venomous, that's for sure.
Other lyrics are as follows: "Wash, rinse, repeat, why are you fighting it?/No, no, no/Don't get crazy, keep between those lines/Here's what we have in mind/We've worked with everyone, trust us and see") and "Hi, my name is … and I'm here to run everything/Spreading like a cancer, I will die and take you all with me." Wow. Miss Clarkson sounds irate, doesn't she?
Is singing and writing well going to be the best revenge for Clarkson? Who is your favorite Idol?
