Kelly Clarkson takes aim at press in new video

Idolator

If you thought the mister in Kelly Clarkson's "Mr. Know It All" video was going to be some dude who beat the singer at a game of Scrabble, then surprise -- turns out she's lashing out at the press and gossip bloggers in her latest clip.

In the new video, Kelly sings in front of a wall covered with newspaper and magazine clippings about her. We also catch her reading a gossip blog, watching footage of herself as she dances on a bar and drunkenly falls off the edge.

Oh, sure, there's a faceless fella we occasionally see Clarkson standing in front of and singing to with a vindictive look gleaming in her eyes. But the anti-rumor theme becomes crystal clear at the end of the Justin Francis-directed clip, when the iHeartRadio Music Festival performer tears the articles off the wall to reveal a road outside.

The singer steps through the barrier of bad press with her suitcase, letting us know that her life would not suck without all the unwanted attention. And, just like the song itself -- which serves as the lead single off Clarkson's upcoming album, "Stronger" -- things become hopeful and upbeat for the first lady of "American Idol" once more.

Overall, it's a great visual that matches the tone and feel of the song perfectly. Watch below:

An excellent video from Kelly- putting the band in silhouette was visually brilliant.  It is an unfortunate human condition that people have with tarnishing or disparaging others that have success and celebrity.  There seems to be no immunity from misinformed idiots posting trash and innuendo, particularly when someone has achieved garnering the spotlight and adoration of others.  To give these individuals any consideration is not worth the time it takes.

I've always liked Kelly; Idol got it right the first time.  Some of the winners that came after her made me go, "Huh????!"   Hope her new album does well.
