Anyone who’s heard Kelly Clarkson’s new album, My December, or has read the pre-release interviews (basically, everyone except my grandma), knows that the singer is having a very public conflict with a certain man in her life. No, I’m not talking about the allegedly golden-eared Clive Davis, who, for the record, isn’t among the many people thanked in the album’s liner notes (even God himself is mentioned multiple times), but former Evanescence member David Hodges, who co-wrote and produced Clarkson’s hit “Because Of You” and was reportedly the inspiration for much of her prickly new album, including the single “Never Again.” Judging by the photographs in the CD booklet for My December, it seems Hodges (who posted and then removed a rebuttal to Clarkson’s single that was called “Just A Little Girl” and included lyrics like “You could never understand the demons that I face/So go ahead and bat your eyes and lie right to the world” and “Decembers were never meant to be our graves”) may have done more damage to his ex than simply break her heart. No less than half of the pictures find Clarkson covering or grasping her…lady parts. Now, I’m not accusing anyone of date rape or anything, but take a look for yourself above.
