Introducing Kelly Brianne

Kelly Clarkson is changing her name to Kelly Brianne in order to better reflect her true self. The singer made the announcement on her website, explaining that she has always gone by her middle name but decided to use her first name professionally when she started out in the music industry. However, she now feels that her middle name better represents her true self. 

Kelly Brianne is a more accurate reflection of who she is as a person, and she wants her fans to know the real her. The name change is just one way that Kelly Clarkson is being true to herself these days. She’s also been open about her struggles with anxiety and depression, and has been candid about her journey to self-acceptance.

Name change not due to her divorce

In the legal documents she filed, Clarkson wrote that she had a “desire” to go by Kelly Brianne, as “my new name more fully reflects who I am.” 

Some people are speculating that she’s changing her name because of her divorce from Brandon Blackstock. However, Clarkson has said that the name change has nothing to do with her personal life and is simply about representing herself authentically.

“I just got divorced so they dropped—I had to drop my married last name so I just kept my middle name from my personal life. No, I’m still Kelly Clarkson. I don’t think I can change Clarkson at this point. I’m 20 years in.”

Clarkson is known worldwide as a pop superstar and former American Idol winner. She rose to fame in the early 2000s with hits like “Miss Independent” and “Since U Been Gone.” Clarkson has always been known for her powerful voice and personal lyrics. In recent years, she’s been open about her struggles with anxiety and depression, and has become an advocate for self-acceptance. Clarkson is currently a coach on The Voice, and her most recent album, Meaning of Life, was released in 2017.

Despite the change in her personal life, Clarkson’s daytime talk show will still be called The Kelly Clarkson Show. The show debuted in 2019 and has been a huge success, winning an Emmy for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show. Clarkson has said that she loves hosting the show and is passionate about connecting with her fans.

“It’s not just a talk show, it’s a movement,” Clarkson said of The Kelly Clarkson Show. “It’s all about positivity and love and fun.”
