American Idol Fodder

Kelly Shuns "Idol"

kclarkson.jpgSince she's been gone -- well it looks like Kelly Clarkson might have wised up. Access Hollywood is reporting that the very first "American Idol" is now biting the hand that has fed her so well.

The show needs to get permission to use songs on the show. No wonder the catalog seems so limited! Well supposedly, the singer does not want future contestants using any of her songs. Maybe she saw the Chicago hopeful that butchered one of her hits last night.

Simon Cowell blasted back (surprised?) saying "I think that by ignoring the show you're ignoring the audience who put you there." A spokesman for Song BMG says it was nothing personal, but she is not putting any of her songs out there for public use.

While Cowell may have a point, Clarkson seems to be doing pretty well since trying to separate herself from the "Idol" image. Before her most recent, Grammy-nominated album "Breakaway," AI creator Simon Fuller handled Clarkson's career. Is he the same one that OK'd "From Justin to Kelly?" Clarkson may have a point indeed.

Cowell is hoping Clarkson will reconsider. If not, there seems to be no shortage of Celine or Whitney songs up for grabs. -- Rachel Cericola
