Kelly Clarkson Addresses Ozempic Rumors, Mocks Her Former Appearance

Kelly Clarkson is opening up about her weight loss and the negativity she feels in her own skin.

During Monday’s episode of “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” the host hosted Whoopi Goldberg, who said in March that she lost weight while taking Mounjaro — an injectable drug in the same class as ‘Ozempic which is also used to manage blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.

Clarkson opened her interview with Goldberg by immediately commenting on her appearance, noting that she looked “younger” lately.

“First of all, that’s all the weight I lost. … I lost almost two people,” Goldberg responded. “I’m making this wonderful shot that works for people who need help, and it’s been really good for me.”

Clarkson then noted that she had also lost “a lot” of weight recently, and attributed some of it to the use of an unnamed medication.

“Mine is different than people think, but I ended up having to do it too because my blood work was so bad,” Clarkson said.

Clarkson later clarified in his interview with Goldberg: “Everyone thinks it’s Ozempic, but it’s not.”

Although Clarkson never specified what medication she was taking, she explained that her prescription medications are “something that helps break down the sugar” in her blood because her body “doesn’t do it properly” on its own.

The “Stronger” singer revealed on her talk show in January that she lost weight after being diagnosed with prediabetes..

Clarkson said that when she was bigger, she “didn’t view” her weight as a problem. But the conversation took a long time much more negative turn when she described a revelation she had in April 2023 reviewing his 41st birthday performance at Belasco.

“I was watching it, we were at my house in New York… and then all of a sudden I paused it and I was like, ‘Who the hell is that?'” Clarkson said, recalling that she thought she looked like she was “about to die of a heart attack”.

Goldberg responded by describing similar feelings she had about her own body.

“I did a movie and a woman thought I was wearing a fat suit,” Goldberg said of her role as Alma Carthan in 2022’s “Till.”

She said, ‘That movie was good, but that big suit was horrible.'” Goldberg recalled from the anonymous fan. “And I was outraged, I was like, ‘It’s not a big suit, it’s me!’ And then I saw Me …and I was like, “Well, yeah, it looks like I’m wearing a big (suit).”

“It’s still pretty amazing,” Clarkson said. “I never considered myself fat. I was never afraid, I was happy… and people said, “Oh, she must not have been happy.” I said to myself, “No, I was happy!” I just didn’t see that.

Goldberg admitted she felt the same way and made fun of her body unconsciousness before taking Mounjaro away.

“I turned around and thought, ‘Oh, wow, did I just iron my own pants?'” Goldberg joked of her previous size. “Because I weighed 300 pounds.”

“My heaviest weight was around 203. And I’m 5’3 and a half,” Clarkson said. Then the singer took a long pause, looked at her audience with a gesture of disbelief and sang the word: “Why?

Clarkson and Goldberg’s bashing of their old bodies is pretty typical of people who have recently lost weight. But the stigmatization of tall people can harm their health.

A review of 2018 in the Journal of Advanced Nursing found that weight stigma increased the risk of diabetes, eating disorders, depression, anxiety and body dissatisfaction. It was also linked to increased chronic stress and chronic inflammation, as well as decreased self-esteem.
