Kelly Clarkson Says ‘Country Music Is Gone’ & Calls It ‘Weird Word Rap’

Kelly Clarkson has some thoughts about the state of today’s country music and she is NOT afraid to share them.

During a Q&A to promote her new show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, the “Broken & Beautiful” singer went on a bit of a passionate rant about the music genre during a game where she was defining Internet slang terms. “Country music doesn’t sound country anymore,” she lamented. “Country music is gone, like, I don’t know who’s making it but there might be, like, four people ’cause now it’s, like, weird rap… weird word rap.”

She continued: “Country music doesn’t even sound country anymore and I’m not even in the country music industry… I just love country music,” she said. “I don’t want to feel like I’m at some weird rock show where they start rapping… what? Why are you rapping in country music? There’s a lot of y’all and it’s bad.”

The American Idol alum made a point to say that she’s not a country artist and isn’t trying to make it in the country world but is voicing her thoughts solely as a huge fan of the music genre.

Her biggest gripe with the genre may be that she misses the music of the ’90s and wishes more women were represented in country music — the latter something, I think, we can all agree on. Proving her point, she goes on to list the incredible and inspiring women of ’90’s country like Trisha Yearwood, Reba, Martina McBride and more.
