Kelly Clarkson Slims Down: For Better or Worse?

Kelly Clarkson has been battling her weight -- or the media has been buzzing about it -- pretty much since she was crowned the first American Idol back in 2002. But the 30-year-old singer looked slimmer (and hotter) than ever when she performed "Dark Side" at Sunday night's Billboard Music Awards, wearing a revealing hot-pink cutout gown (pictured on the right hand side of the photo below.)



Professionally, Clarkson will next be seen on Thursday's premiere of the new singing competition show "Duets," along with co-stars Robin Thicke, Jennifer Nettles and Lionel Richie. Personally, she has a steady boyfriend, 35-year-old talent manager Brandon Blackstock, which is affecting her songwriting (and not necessarily in a good way).

"It is killing me," Clarkson told People. "I'm trying to write a tough song and it is coming out like butterflies and rainbows. It is ruining my creativity. I'm writing all this happy [stuff]." But while Clarkson is looking sexier than ever, don't expect to see her teetering around in Christian Louboutins. "I don’t want to wear no stiletto," she said. "I am not a model and I am not Beyoncé. It is not going to happen."

    It's probably just the picture, but I don't see any difference. But she does look a lot better in the picture on the right. If she did lose weight, good for her.

    She always looks amazing, but I do think for her health that losing that 20 or so pounds is better for her. Plus, she has said before that she prefers not to "feel gigantic".

    Having been in a battle for a few months to lose about that much, it is hard, it is hard work, and your body naturally craves the really lovely high fat foods. So good on her for sticking with it.

    She looks good in both pictures, but that after picture of her doesn't do her justice because of what she's wearing.

    Leave her alone and let her sing. If you're concerned about weight, worry about your OWN weight.

    I think she's always looked good: a little heavy is a lot fine with me. It also doesn't hurt she has appealing facial features and nice hair.

    I feel bad for Kelly. No matter what she does, she just can't win. It's like Jessica Simpson all over again.

    Well, yeah, but in regards to weight, Jessica Simpson can't win, either. Which was my point.

    It could be the dress, which is ugly, but she looks much worse on the right than she does on the left.

    more importantly, does she feel healthier and better?

    binge eating can weigh you down more than just physically

    I really like Kelly Clarkson and she look food after losing a little weight. She looked fabulous on the Billboard Music Award in that red gown. Great job Kelly!

    Neither, she looks fine just as she is, but she hasn't lost weight.....if she did it isn't obvious.

    However, those pictures don't allow any difference to show.

    Any time you can slim down within reason It's better and I don't mean like those under fed runway models.
