After Kelly Clarkson delivered a powerful rendition of Selena Gomez’s ‘Rare,’ Sel herself said she absolutely ‘loved’ the ‘American Idol’ alum’s performance.
Kelly Clarkson kicked off the new year with a string of new episodes of The Kelly Clarkson Show, and on Wednesday’s program, the 38-year-old singer brought a little “Rare” flavor. During the Jan. 6 edition of Kellyoke, Kelly and her band, Y’all, busted out an upbeat version of Selena Gomez’s 2020 hit. Kelly’s version of “Rare” got the seal approval from Selena herself. “Love this and [heart emoji] you,” Selena, 28, tweeted while sharing a clip of Kelly’s performance.

The love between Kelly and Selena goes both ways. Selena stopped by The Kelly Clarkson Show in March 2020 (the same month Kelly covered “Lose You To Love Me”) to discuss her Rare album, and during the chat, Selena opened up about her insecurities. “I know that people may not think I’m the greatest singer,” said Selena. “But I just work my ass off. I really love writing and creating and creating melodies and growing.” Upon hearing this, Kelly did her best to shut down Selena’s inner saboteur by giving Sel a pep talk.
“I want to point something out,” said Kelly. “The best singer in the world, talking to everyone in the world right now, is not the loudest, and is not the, you know, ‘Oh my god, you sing like Whitney Houston.’ The best singers in the world move you. And that comes from all different sounds and styles, and from a singer to a singer, it’s beautiful what you do, and I love your record. I love big huge songs, but I love singing your music, it means something, and it moves people. So, don’t ever negate your gift because it’s powerful.”
During this chat, Selena also spoke about Rare was her chance “to say all the things that I wanted to say in that way, which was talking about relationships and talking about difficult times or being vulnerable or being stuck in your head because I can do that a lot. I wanted it to feel good. I wanted it to feel like every word mattered, and you could feel it physically. I’m still in the studio actually now because I feel like it’s inspired me, and I want to keep going.”
A day before Kelly shared her performance of “Rare,” fans were buzzing about Selena’s ex, The Weeknd. The R&B singer, who dated Selena for 10 months back in 2017, released the official video for “Save Your Tears.” Many fans thought that the actress cast in the music video bore a resemblance to his ex-girlfriend. “How is no one talking about how the girl looks so much like Selena G,” one YouTube commenter said, while another added, “Girl dancing looks like Selena.”
Suri Cruise Sports Long Hair While Posing With Flowers & Goofing Off With Friends On 15th Birthday
Suri Cruise looked super sweet while enjoying her 15th birthday in the Big Apple! The teenager showed off her long hair and posed with some flowers as her friend snapped some pics!
Suri Cruise is another year older! The teenage daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise turned 15 years old on April 18, and she looked like she had a total blast on her big day. The newly minted 15-year-old spent her birthday out and about in New York City and was spotted having some low-key birthday fun. Suri and a few of her pals were seen snapping some photos together while posing with a pretty bouquet of pink and white carnations.
The birthday girl also showed off her long, brunette ‘do, and looked like the spitting image of her famous mom, 42. Naturally, Suri followed the necessary safety precautions while celebrating her birthday amid the COVID-19 pandemic. She and her friends wore protective face masks while having fun in the Big Apple. The teens only removed their face masks while smiling for a quick photo, or enjoying some delicious ice cream!
Despite her birthday falling during the middle of a pandemic, Suri truly showed the she was enjoying her day like so many around the world who celebrated their special days during COVID-19, as well. Suri’s mom, Katie, made sure to celebrate her daughter’s birthday by taking to Instagram and sharing a carousel of photos to her social media account. Far more precious than the intimate pics of Suri and her mom, however, was the sweet caption Katie wrote and dedicated to her teen.
“Happy 15th Birthday Sweetheart! I love you,” Katie wrote, adding a string of exclamation points and a number of emojis. “I can’t believe you are already 15!” Katie concluded the post. It’s hard to believe that Suri is already 15 years old. After all, it doesn’t seem like that long ago that she was just a tiny tot being photographed while out with her famous parents.
Over the course of the last few years, though, Suri’s adoring mom has made a concerted effort to offer her daughter as normal an upbringing as possible. Suri’s bond with her mom is so incredibly strong and it’s amazing to see the teen grow up to be her Katie’s mini-me. Fans cannot wait to see what the future holds for the teenager!
Happy 42nd Birthday, Kourtney Kardashian: Look Back At Her Hottest Photos Of All-Time
In honor of Kourtney Kardashian’s 42nd birthday, we’re looking back at some of her hottest outfits ever!
Kourtney Kardashian is celebrating another trip around the sun on April 18! The reality star turns 42 this year, and she has many reasons to celebrate. For the big day, we’re taking a trip down memory lane and looking back at some of the sexiest outfits that Kourtney has ever worn. From little black dresses to short shorts and more, Kourtney definitely knows how to dress to impress.
Black Leather Dress
In December 2019, Kourtney attended the Dior Men’s Fashion Show in Miami. She wore a black leather dress with thin straps, paired with strappy, open-toed heels. Although the dress reached down to Kourt’s knees, it provided a sexy, dominatrix style for her night out. She wore her hair in wet curls, with minimal jewelry and subtle makeup to complete the edgy look.
Purple Slip Dress
When it comes to mini dresses, Kourtney is definitely a pro. She’s even mastered the art of wearing lingerie as clothing! In June 2019, Kourtney enjoyed a night out with some friends, and she wore a purple slip dress for the occasion. The ensemble featured lace detailing on the edges, and could easily be doubled as a nightgown. However, Kourt dressed it up with some heels and it was the perfect mini for a night on the town!
High Slit Dress
Another one of Kourt’s sexiest looks was worn in Feb. 2019. Kourtney attended the amfAR Gala with sister Kim Kardashian and looked absolutely stunning. She rocked a black Versace dress featuring a double scoop neckline and a sexy thigh-high slit. The eldest KarJenner paired her look with pointed toe stilettos and styled her hair into a dramatic high ponytail.
These are just a few of Kourtney’s best looks, though. She’s one of the most fashion-forward celebs we know, so of course there are plenty of other outfits to admire. Luckily, we gathered some of her sexiest ensembles of all-time and put them in the gallery above for your viewing pleasure. Happy clicking – and happy birthday, Kourtney!
