Weezer's Rivers Cuomo and Kelly Clarkson share mutual fan moment

LifestyleKelly Clarkson explains why she’s fine with spanking her kids Mum shamers stand back

After singer Kelly Clarkson, the "American Idol" victor, stated that she spanks her children, and some accused her of abuse.

Clarkson also said there is a line that crosses over into abuse, but she doesn't believe a simple spanking crosses that line.

That said, she does wish the new judging panel of Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan luck.

"I'm not above a spanking, which people aren't necessarily into". "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 has two children with her husband Brandon Blackstock and she's the stepmother to two other children.

Kelly Clarkson has defended her decision to use smacking as a method of discipline for her two kids.

Mum to 3-year-old daughter River Rose, and nearly 2-year-old son Remington, the singer explained that while other parents aren't about physically disciplining their kids, she see a little spanking as totally acceptable. "My mum would call the principal if I ever ended up in the principle's office and give permission for her to spank me", the singer added.

Yet Clarkson isn't the only one to think the effects of spanking have been overstated.

It wasn't all fun for Kelly though, as she admitted she was craving a cup of tea for the whole evening, and had to resort to sipping on wine when she discovered the event wasn't serving the hot beverage.

Clarkson said in a radio interview with Rochester's 98.9 The Buzz, "I don't mean hitting her hard. You are lacking something if you cannot discipline without violence", another said. "They teach me", she continued. "If you have questions about disciplining your children, talk with your pediatrician". "I feel fine about it, and I do that as well".
