kelly clarkson blasts clive davis memoir

Clive Davis hit the talk show circuit Tuesday to promote his new memoir 'The Soundtrack of My Life.'  He dropped a bisexual bombshell on Katie Couric but what got Kelly Clarkson all fired up were the "lies" he wrote about their relationship.

The former 'Idol' winner immediately prepared a blog response to set the record straight about the misguided recollections of the 80-year-old music mogul.

A pop rock artist with crossover success in country music, Clarkson wrote, "So I just heard Clive Davis is releasing a memoir and spreading false information about me and my music.  I refuse to be bullied and I just have to clear up his memory lapses and misinformation for myself and for my fans.  It feels like a violation.  Growing up is awesome because you learn you don't have to cower to anyone -- even Clive Davis."

She went on to point out inaccuracies and omissions that appear in the Davis life story.  She described her lowest point during their association.  "He stood up in front of his company at a convention and belittled me and my music and completely sabotaged 'My December' ....  it never had a chance to reach its full potential.  It was an album I needed to make for myself for many reasons and the fact that I was so completely disregarded and disrespected was so disheartening, there really aren't words to explain..."

Kelly ended by saying, "Anyway, I love my job.  I love my music.  I love my fans.  I love my label and all of my professional relationships... now.  And I am grateful to Clive for teaching me to know the difference."

clive davis comes out to katie couric1

Music industry executive Clive Davis revealed during an interview with Katie Couric that after a failed marriage in the 80's he discovered that he was bisexual.

Why would an 80-year-old business mogul speak out now?  The music veteran has a book that is set to launch today.  'The Soundtrack of My Life,' released by Simon & Schuster will cover his five decades in the business with shared snippets of a decidedly personal nature.

Davis revealed that after the breakup of his marriage, "I opened myself up to the possibility that I could have a relationship with a man as well as the two that I had with a woman.  I'm also attracted to women.  You don't have to be only one thing or another.  For me, it's the person."

The father of four told Couric that he is currently "in a monogamous relationship."

You can catch the entire interview Tuesday, Feb 19, on the ABC syndicated talk show 'Katie.'

Check out a clip from the interview below:

It has been some time now that we have been hearing about the big Whitney Houston comeback.  Now only a few months out, Houston's 7th album will be released on September 1st by Sony Music.

Whitney's 2002 album Just Whitney brought her short-lived success before her life seemed to spiral out of control.  Married at the time to singer Bobby Brown, they hit the headlines frequently for their drug fueled lifestyle that included many fights.

The two ended their marriage in 2006 and Houston sought treatment for her addiction issues.  Although Bobby's state of health is still in question, it seems that with the support of friends and family, Whitney is on the right track.

Long time friend and record industry mogul Clive Davis has always had Whitney's back and in February he spoke to MTV News about her comeback.

"You wait for the great songs to be written -- the greatest hits Whitney has given to the public for so many years -- you keep encouraging and setting the bar."

We are very excited to see what she has in store for us and congratulate her on her road to recovery.

usher and tamika

Usher fans were disappointed last night after record mogul Clive Davis announced that the singer would not be performing at his Pre-Grammy party as expected, due to a family emergency.

The R&B singer is married to Tamika Foster and they have two children.  The rumor mill was working overtime with talk that Tamika had passed away after having some plastic surgery procedure that went terribly wrong.  Although friends are denying the death, Access Hollywood is saying there were indeed some complications for Foster after having cosmetic surgery in Brazil.

Details remain sketchy but Clive did tell his guests last night that he had received phone calls from Usher and his mother, who both reported that they were dealing with a very serious illness in the family.

Leona Lewis, up and coming singer and Clive Davis protegee, was back in the UK to film videos for her songs Better in Time and Footprints in the Sand. Lewis performed last week at Davis' pre-Grammys party where she got rave reviews from veteran Whitney Houston, who called the rising star a 'baby me' and said "she looks so incredible."

Lewis was an office receptionist before winning on the British TV series The X Factor in December 2006. Her debut album was released in November 2007. The stunning 22 year old did a photo shoot for Harper's Bazaar UK in October 2007, which was filmed in Los Angeles.

Lewis is under contract with Clive Davis worth a reported $9.7 million.

After a very public clash over the summer, Kelly Clarkson and Clive Davis appear to be back on good terms – at least if the photo at the bottom of this page is any evidence.

The BMG (Bertelsmann Music Group) chairman visited the American Idol champ and Grammy winner backstage at the sold-out opening night of her tour at New York's Beacon Theater Sunday - according to People Magazine. The road trip marked Clarkson's return to the stage after a bumpy summer that included the cancellation of her first tour, and her war of words with Davis. She later extended an olive branch to the music mogul in July, saying, "I'm well aware that Clive is one of the great record men of all time."
