American Idol winner and pop singer Kelly Clarkson was caught without make-up outside her New York hotel last night (picture below). She was a far cry from the glamorous 'Since You Been Gone' singer that we all know.
The 29-year-old singer/songwriter also showed off her curves in a floral top, black trousers and leather jacket.
Clarkson's weight has fluctuated, with her slimmest being in 2006 when she won two Grammy awards. In 2009, Clarkson made headlines when she was digitally-slimmed for the cover of Self magazine.
Popular VideoCongress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?
The singer's enhanced image on the publication was ironic given her statements in the accompanying interview: "My happy weight changes. Sometimes I eat more; sometimes I play more. I'll be different sizes all the time. When people talk about my weight, I'm like, "You seem to have a problem with it; I don't."
"I love healthy stuff and junk an equal amount. Whatever I'm craving, I go for it. I'm never trying to lose weight, or gain it. I'm just being."
Kelly is currently in New York City to promote her new album 'Stronger,' to be released on October 24.
