Following her ugly divorce from Brandon Blackstock, Kelly Clarkson has begun rewriting the words of her songs.
During her Las Vegas residency, the 41-year-old pop artist recently delivered an updated version of her poignant ballad Piece by Piece.
Kelly highlighted the significance of the shift to the audience, throwing a not-so-subtle jab at her ex-husband in the process.
The singer – who was married to Brandon between 2013 and 2021 – said: ‘This song I initially wrote just super hopeful, right?
‘And well, sometimes hopeful turns into hopeless, so here we go, Piece by Piece.’
The song is a follow-up to Kelly’s 2004 smash track Because of You, which focused on the anguish she felt as a result of her absent parents.
Kelly sung about her then-husband and how he was always there for her in the original version of the wonderful song.
The lyrics include: ‘He never walks away, he never asks for money, he takes care of me, he loves me.’
But on the amended version of the track, she sang: ‘I just walk away, when they ask for money, I take care of me, ’cause I love me.’
To be honest, we admire a strong lady.
Meanwhile, Kelly previously said that her children still ‘dream’ of reuniting with her ex-husband.
The singer, who has two children with Brandon, Remy, seven, and River, eight, claimed that her children still hope for a reunion.
Kelly told the We Can Do Hard Things podcast: ‘Your kids will still have a hard time.
‘It doesn’t matter if you stay, it doesn’t matter if you go, I am still having conversations [with my kids] three years later.
‘My kids just came back from my ex and any time there’s mention of maybe him being with somebody else… they are just really adamant about keeping that dream alive that we might still be together one day.’
