Aside from being America's first Idol and blazing up the charts with hit songs over the last 17 years, Kelly Clarkson has made a name for herself for being delightfully unfiltered.   

'I usually clapback when it's something funny,' Kelly said while sitting on the set of her new show. 'Here's the thing, I don't get ever offended.'

'I know that sounds weird and maybe that's because I grew up kind of in a small town and everybody offended me left and right,' the blonde beauty quipped with a cackle.

Adding: 'It's just on a bigger scale in the limelight.'

Unfortunately, over her storied 17 year career many a critic and troll has come along to judge her for things like her style and her body - but Clarkson let's it roll off her back. 

'What bothers me about the shaming,' Kelly explained, 'whether it's what you're saying, what you look like, what your music is like - whatever - it is it's like to each his own, man.'

'Why are you taking time out of your life to be hateful towards someone? It's just weird. It says more about you than it does to the person you're hating on.'

Clarkson admitted that she feels like trolling, bullying and especially body shaming is more toxic for her fans than anything else. Which is what really gets under her skin. 

All about her fans: Kelly revealed that the body shaming she has received never really bothers her because she's 'confident and comfortable' in her own skin but it breaks her heart when it impacts how her fans see themselves
'I'm not perfect. I'm far from perfect,' the star said. 'I've never been and I'm okay with that. I'm very confident and comfortable in my skin because these were these were my cards and I'm very blessed.'

'When it comes to body shaming, I mean, it's the worst feeling in the world for people to come up at meet and greets and say "Oh my god, wait, if they think that you're huge than what do they think of me? Because I'm bigger that you."'

'That's the part that breaks my heart. Because it's like ... screw 'em! Who cares what they think? Are you happy with you? That is the point.'

That is exactly the mentality that Kelly says she wants her new show to be and represent - and she practices what she preaches.  

'I'm not perfect. I'm far from perfect,' the star said. 'I've never been and I'm okay with that. I'm very confident and comfortable in my skin because these were these were my cards and I'm very blessed.'

The newly minted talk show host ruminated a bit on the things she's focused on in her own life like 'healthy kids, healthy family, healthy life.'

Sadly, though, she admitted that positivity doesn't seem to sell as well as hate and she hopes her daytime platform can help shift that.  

'I feel like there's a lot of division going on right now and I want an even playing field. Everyone's invited here everyone's represented everybody's included.'

She added with a giggle: 'Don't worry, I'll still clapback!'

Changing the conversation: Everyone is included at Kelly's new talk show and she aims for the series to be a place for all people and all opinions in what she called a time of 'a lot of division'

The chart-topper's clapbacks, fangirl moments and self-deprecating humor have made her one of the more delightful celebrities to follow on social media and Kelly wears her candor with a sense of pride.

'Me? Oh I haven't stuck my foot in my mouth for me,' Kelly laughed when she was asked about her no holds barred approach to being open.

'But, I know a lot of people I work with were like "maybe you shouldn't have said that,"' the songbird added with her infectious chuckle.

Clarkson premiered her eponymous daytime talk show last week and it's already a smash. The Kelly Clarkson Show is the top rated new daytime show in the last seven years.

She welcomed huge A-listers like Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, John Legend and Jennifer Garner as well as hosting icons Ellen DeGeneres and Jay Leno but people seem to be tuning in for Kelly herself.  

'I don't ever feel like I'm saying things [that are] completely crazy,' she said. 'I feel like I'm very normal, I say things that people are - I don't know - normally thinking.'

The small town girl turned superstar likened her honesty to that of the often prickly former American Idol host Simon Cowell. 

'Everybody thought Simon was so mean,' she said thoughtfully. 'I guess he can be very honest sometimes, like on Idol, but I felt like he represented what a lot of people said, you know, in their homes.'

Her unfiltered candor is something people love about Kelly and she likened her approach to Idol judge Simon Cowell: 'Everybody thought Simon was so mean,' she said thoughtfully.

The Behind These Hazel Eyes belter joked that she's very real because she's 'way too lazy to be otherwise.' 

In truth, Kelly really doesn't have a moment to waste as one of the world's most popular recording artists, a judge on The Voice and now the host of her show daily show. 

'The show is very down-to-earth and I want it to feel authentic,' Kelly said of her new series.
