Kelly Clarkson fan AnneChantel posts an awesome concert video…and then the freaks want her head
On Top Idol, we often discuss the crazy fans of the MALE contestants, as they typically bring out the REAL batshit crazy. We would also like to assume someone as talented and established as Kelly Clarkson aka THE ONE AND ONLY AMERICAN IDOL just doesn’t have to deal with this crap. Sure, I’ve heard about fan wars on her boards, too, but, hey…I just find the Glamberts, Confrauen, Cooktards, et al, well, they just open themselves up to greater public mockery.
I had no idea this funny video posted of Kelly Clarkson firing her guitarist Dwayne in 2005 would irk so many diehard Kelly fans. It’s awesome. It was posted on MJs and VFTW and both MJ and Dave thought this was EXCELLENT. (Even Useless Douchebag Perez Hilton thought it was good enough to post, and I don’t think he’s even tried sticking his head as far as humanly possible up Clarkson’s ass.)
I finally watched the video, and I have to agree. Hell, it also made me realize I just have to see Kelly live one of these days because she’s obviously an artist who plays to her fans rather than to her ego (i.e., SPRINGSTEEN).
Not only did I think what she did was REALLY COOL, I was also impressed with how she made that ridiculous A Moment Like This a bit more true to her and rocked the shit out of it. (Remember, kiddies, its only been recently that Idol contestants have been allowed to play around with arrangements.) If anything, this made me adore Kelly even more, as it proves just how gutsy she is. She doesn’t give a rat’s ass. She’s just gonna be herself. And she’s gonna stand up for herself and her fans if she sees something isn’t right.
GO KELLY CLARKSON!!!!
Anyway, now devoted fan AnneChantal, who posted that killer video is being ATTACKED. Yup. ATTACKED. Anne Chantel has been attacked by her “fellow” Clarkson fans for posting this video. Like me, you probably first wonder why. Then you think, what the hell is wrong with you people?
“I’ve since been the subject of EXTREME harrassment by members of the KCE (Kelly Clarkson Express) whom are upset with me for uploading the video as they don’t want their precious Kelly Clarkson to be seen in a negative light and get any bad press for it,” says AnneChantal.
Here are a few samples of the insanity (but definitely read the link above where AnneChantal has detailed out the crazy even further. GO ANNECHANTAL!)
Little did I know it would anger a certain fanbase of Kelly’s – that fan base is known as the KCE a.k.a Kelly Clarkson Express. Seeing as the video was from 5 years ago, I didn’t think it would be such a big deal until I watched it myself. I, admittedly, hadn’t seen it until the day I uploaded it. Since uploading the video to YouTube, myself and a few others have been the target of extreme personal attacks and threats by this group of fans. From slander/defamation/libel on Kelly’s own fanclub message board, to receiving anonymous phone calls and threats. I’ve included a few screencaps below for your viewing pleasure, just to get a taste of what these individuals are really like…
Well, good job lunatics, because Music City Networks, who runs Clarkson’s official website and forum out of Nashville, doesn’t want to hear about this shit. They’ve also removed the thread lambasting AnneChantal–especially when a few lunatics decided to use the whole “insider” thing in an attempt to contact Clarkson’s backup signers, Jill and Kate.
A harrassing post on Kelly Clarkson’s fan club message board was deleted by the administrators, but once the “fans” found out they couldn’t harrass me or anyone else directly on the board, they decided to take it to PM – and not only that, but use the names of Kelly’s back-up singers, Jill and Kate, as means to justify it…
Really, whackos? What good did this do for you? MCN knows about it and are also contacting Jill and Kate about the incident and any unwarranted private messages they may receive.
Don’t you love how, in an effort to prove you’re the BIGGEST AND BEST FAN EVER, you end up shooting yourself in the foot and being tagged with word “psycho” from the very people you want so desperately to get closer to?
