Kelly Clarkson Will Emerge “Stronger” Following Divorce

Earlier this month Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock after almost seven years of marriage. Well, things may be tough now, sources close to the singer insist she will emerge stronger than before.

“Kelly is a doer, a pusher, someone who forges ahead even when it’s difficult for her,” an insider tells “People.” “Being busy is a blessing and she knows that.”

The source adds, “Music builds her up even if her songs are confronting her troubles. Kelly will come out of this a stronger person.”

ONE MORE THING! Kelly channeled The Cure for her latest edition of her daytime talk show segment Kellyoke. The singer performed the band’s hit “Just Like Heaven.”

Carrie Underwood Thrilled Someone Mistook Reese Witherspoon For Her

Over the weekend, Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon tweeted that she was actually mistaken for the country star, sharing, “To the woman in the parking lot who just asked me if I was Carrie Underwood : You officially made my day ! 🥰”

Well, it seems Reese’s day wasn’t the only one that was made. Carrie responded to Reese’s tweet with, “YOUR day?!?!?!?! That lady just made my whole life! ❤️❤️❤️.”

ONE MORE THING! As we get ready to celebrate the Fourth of July this weekend, Carrie shares that one of her favorite memories growing up was going to the fireworks stand at age seven or eight to pick out fireworks for the holiday. “Of course I couldn’t wait until it was dark outside,” she shares. “I made my Mom and Dad get the lawn chairs and come out to the backyard and watch some not very dramatic fireworks at like six o’clock in the evening, but I was so proud of myself, and I was so proud of the show that I put on.”


Garth Brooks Drive-In Concert Gets Mixed Reviews

Garth Brooks’ “Encore Live Presents Garth Brooks: A Drive-In Concert Experience” took place this weekend, and it looks like reaction was a bit mixed.

It seems some attendees didn’t quite understand that they’d be watching a pre-taped concert, with folks taking to social media to say they thought they’d be watching a live concert in real time. Others were unhappy that the concert movie was only a little over an hour, and they had to sit through 30 minutes of video from an artist named Randall King before it even started.

One writer who attended the drive-in concert said it didn’t come close to replicating a real-life concert experience, and for $100 per car, it was a pretty steep price to pay for basically a concert film. The writer also noted that the movie seemed “too perfect,” since it was sleekly edited, and also mentioned that the audio experience was at best “OK, and in some cases “awful.”

As for the concert itself, Garth performed 18 songs, including hits like “The Dance,” “Friends in Low Places,” “The Thunder Rolls,” his cover of Billy Joel’s “Shameless,” “Callin’ Baton Rouge” and more.
