Tuesday Tribute: Please remind me who I really am

I have been mocked numerous times for my love of all things Kelly Clarkson. I don't care. Mock me if you must, but I love her music.

My friend, B, & I have seen her multiple times and we'd go see her again if she were anywhere in PA tomorrow.

We drove about three hours to see her on Saturday and it was fantastic. I loved how she opened the show with a song off her new album called Dark Side. The gist of the song is that we all have a dark side and the question is that if once you know it, will you love the person anyway?

At the concert, the stage is draped with a sheer curtain. On the curtain are images projected of all the negative publicity Kelly has received over her decade long career. Kelly is Fat, Kelly has a makeup mishap, Kelly's album not up to par. The words are repeated over and over. As she belts out the lyrics from behind the sheer curtain, when she gets to the verse "please remind me who I really am" the drape disappears and the cheers from the crows erase all the negative comments.

Do you have someone who reminds you who you really are? Do you have someone who loves you even though they know about your dark side?

We all need someone to chase away our critics!

You knew I'd say it, but definitely Hubby is that person for me. He has seen me at my ultimate worst and still loves me. What more could a gal ask for?

I guess I didn't know you were a Kelly Clarkson fan! I love what she did with her negative publicity though.

Wonderful song! I've not heard it before, but that's not surprising, I'm not up on more current music.

I have to tell you a story. My son and I are watching the Stargate series together, he has seen them all several times and convinced me to check them out, now I'm hooked. Anyway, we were watching one and there was this actress and she looked familiar and suddenly I realized that she looks like you. Now keep in mind I've only seen a few pictures of you on the blog, but go to Google and do an image search for Tamsin Kelsey. I'll bet you'll think I'm nuts, but to me she looks like she could be your sister.

Wow...what a cool song. I can't say that I enjoy Kelly Clarkson but I don't not like her either. I would never make fun of you for going to see her in concert...well maybe not much! But that's why you love me right!?????!!!!
