Clive Davis is in the News a Bunch for Being a Heartless Queen

Clive Davis Kelly clarksonClive Davis and Kelly Clarkson’s feud is a little confusing. Here are the facts… Davis, CEO of Clarkson’s record label RCA, wrote a memoir called The Soundtrack of My Life. In the memoir, the 80-year-old producer credited for kickstarting the careers of talented acts like Whitney Houston, paints Kelly as an overly emotional twit with terrible instincts.

Specifically, he says Kelly was “hysterically sobbing” in his office because she hated what turned out to be the most successful songs from her 2004 sophomore album Breakaway.

Clarkson remembers it differently, writing an open letter on WhoSay about how Davis called her a “sh*tty writer” and told her to “just shut up and sing” after she performed the very personal “Because Of You.”

In a new, extra long Tweet from today, Davis complimented her skills as a vocalist and performer (but not as a songwriter, because he still thinks she sucks at that).

“I am truly very sorry that she has decided to take issue with what I know to be an accurate depiction of our time together,” he wrote.

(I’m completely on her side, but I also think Clive is just the bisexual version of Tommy Mottola, and I oddly admire how they both unapologetically own that whole misogynistic asshole thing.)
