Adele, who has been open about her own experience with post partum depression after the birth of her son Angelo, adds, “She has written the most intimate, witty, heartbreaking and articulate piece about her experience of becoming a new mum and being diagnosed with postpartum psychosis. Mamas talk about how you’re feeling because in some cases it could save yours or someone else’s life x.”
Kelly Clarkson Didn’t Know Christina Aguilera Helped Write “Miss Independent”
Kelly Clarkson’s hit song “Miss Independent” has a co-writing credit by Christina Aguilera, and, in case you missed it, Kelly admits she had no idea that Christina had written part of the song until she noticed the credit on her album.
Kelly explained on “Watch What Happens Live” that Christina had started the song with producers, but it didn’t go anywhere, and Kelly eventually picked up the tune and finished it.
“My label at the time didn't tell me but I guess the producers and writers started it with her but then it wasn't finished so I ended up writing the rest and finishing it without even knowing she was on it or ever a part of it," she shared. "I swear to God, I got my album booklet and I was like, 'Oh my God, my first album,' and then I was like, 'Why is Christina Aguilera on it? That's weird?' And I love her, so I'm like, 'Cool... but what?' It was a weird thing."
Kelly then noted, “She made good money, that was a pretty big song."
