Kelly Clarkson Radio

Kelly Clarkson is awesome. Why? Because she's not only taking the high road in response to some nasty comments about her weight ... she did it FLAWLESSLY. 

The pop star, who gave birth to her first daughter eight months ago, was targeted by British TV personality Katie Hopkins. She tweeted, "that is not baby weight. It is fat. Quit calling it cute names to make yourself feel better."  

She has no remorse.

But Kelly shrugged off the comments in a new interview with Heat magazine, saying:

"She's tweeted something nasty about me? That's because she doesn't know me. I'm awesome! It doesn't bother me. It's a free world. Say what you will." 

"I've just never cared what people think. It's more if I'm happy and I'm confident and feeling good, that's always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family - I don't seek out any other acceptance."

Kelly has A LOT to be happy and confident about. Her new album Piece by Piece was released earlier this week, her daughter River Rose is one of the CUTEST babies you will ever see, and she's about to rule the world and go back on tour.

Run and tell THAT. HOME BOY.
