This is kind of surprising. Kelly’s working on a new album with Ryan.
The reason this is surprising is because [lastfm]Kelly Clarkson [/lastfm]was not exactly thrilled with Ryan Tedder of [lastfm]One Republic [/lastfm]after her song, “Already Gone” sounded a lot like [lastfm]Beyonce[/lastfm]’s “Halo,” also written by Tedder.
After that, Kelly wrote a song called, “Wash, Rinse, Repeat” directed at him. He must be pretty cool about it though, because he said, “I’m pretty sure that song was ‘somewhat’ about me … and her record label,” said Ryan. “But I actually like it — I think Kelly speaks her mind regardless of anything. She’s great with lyrics, and I love that she is her own person. She’s no puppet.”
Then he added something that probably made Kelly want to work with him again, “I’m working on stuff for her next album and am personally over any of the drama between the two of us,” Tedder continued. “It’s silly. ‘Already Gone’ is now a bigger hit than ‘Halo’ was, so I think she’s probably happy, too.” (Photo by Christopher Polk/Getty Images)
