Kelly Clarkson says she's not against spanking to discipline kids


"It's her kid if she chooses to spank or not spank". Filming has already started on the 14th season of the reality series. "It's a rare opportunity that this show represents that people might not get through on other shows", Clarkson said. So we suspect she'll get a heaping helping of both mom shame and atta-girls for her latest truth parenting bomb. Clarkson also interacted with American Idol alum turned Voice coach, Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Hudson.

That said, she does wish the new judging panel of Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan luck. "I think when you're younger and, especially in this kind of industry where everybody's always applauding you or even if they're talking bad or good, they're still talking about you".

Clarkson is confident that the show's big television comeback will be a success.

The Texas-born star acknowledged that espousing spanking can be "a trick thing" because some people think it's wrong to discipline a child that way. "The ones that aren't insecure or threatened". Physical punishments, including spanking, are not part of the recommendation from the American Academy of Pediatrics as it apparently instills aggressive behavior in kids.

The Voice Season 14 premieres on February 26, Monday, at 8 p.m. on NBC.

"I warn her", Clarkson continued.

"I'm not above a spanking, which people aren't necessarily into and I don't mean like hitting her hard, I just mean a spanking", Clarkson told 98.9 The Buzz in Rochester, New York.

Clarkson added she was spanked as a child and she "did fine in life".

During a radio interview, the Stronger singer says she was smacked as a child and occasionally does the same to her children, three-year-old River Rose and one-year-old Remington.
