Good Charlotte disses Kelly Clarkson on blog

Filed as News on September 30, 2005 3:49 am

by Duncan

Firstly, apparently the band Good Charlotte has a blog, indeed 4 blogs, one for each member and secondly, people are reading them, because apparently one of the members of the band, Benji Madden, has been using his blog to take pot shots at American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, including implying that she’s fat as well!

According to MTV (hmmm….the still do music, didn’t know that), the post, since removed, read as follows:
“My mom told me if I didn’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all, so I won’t say ‘Amercian Idol’ sux, but it does make me laugh when someone like Kelly Clarkson disses someone like Hilary Duff….Cause let’s not forget Kelly (BTW-Kanye West thinks u have a nice ass, I saw him look at it one time … me, I prefer the more fit look), you were a contestant on a TV show. Hilary made herself.”

Quality content from the rock world :-) The blog can be viewed here.

    You’re an idiot. Kelly made herself and your stupid girlfriend is just jealous. Isn’t she in enough fights with others already? Are you that jealous. I’ve seen Kelly in concert and she has an awesome voice, she doesn’t have a big backer like disney, etc.. who made Hillary? Not Hillary. Bitch about something you know about, don’t continue to show your stupidity

    Benji is spelt Benji, not Bengi. Hilary is spelt Hilary, not Hillary. Oh, yeah, Hilary’s dating JOEL, Benji’s twin, not Benji.

    Gah. When I first heard about that I was like ‘Fuck Good Charlotte. Fuck Benji…stupid ass-hole doesn’t know one single damn thing about Kelly and yet he’s making assumtions…god dammit!’

    I think Benji was an immature self absorbed brat in this. He only stated about Kelly’s weight and her mother. (When personally, he shouldn’t be talking, what with his seven chins hanging out) God beeping dammit! Benji, it’s a life. It’s a joke. Deal with it if Kelly’s better than you and Hilary! GAH!

    And if you Kelly haters are so sure of yourself, come on. Let’s see whose better. Let’s see whose more immature. Let’s see how much you know about Kelly, only to realize you hate her because Benji, the ‘hardcore my ass’ said she sucks. Psh. Twelve year olds

    P.S. Benji apologized already…after he learned it was a joke…that’s what we call in my hometown ‘dense’

    The only thing Kelly Clarkson does is SCREAM in those mics,her songs are like hell!
    If I listen to Clarksons tracks for one hour I would have to rest for a week,Hilary for that matter has a more relaxed voice.
    Btw have you been watching World Idol?Did you see that dissapointing bitchy look on Clarksons face when she learned that another contestant earned more points than she did? I really don’t get her,she really thinks she is IT,she thinks she comparable to Mariah Carey,Whitney,Aretha and Celine but she must be kidding herself badly,in a lifetime she won’t be at par with them.
    I’d say she sould work on her bitchiness and try to be more down to earth.

    I totally disagree with Benji! What an ass. Frist off Good Charlotte sucks, all they do is scream in their songs and it sounds like shit. Second Hillary Duff REALLY sucks, more than good charlotte. She is a winey little bitch who is spoile. The only reason she even has a recording contract is because of her gay little tv show. And ya know what Benji Kelly obviosly must be pretty damn good. Even though she did get her start on American Idol, she still has to be pretty good to stay on top. You never hear of anyone else from american idol being really successful. I would really like to see hillary and kelly fight so kelly could knocksome since into hillary. Also Benji, you say kelly is fat, and I say guys don’t wear make up. Kelly ROcks and Good Charollete SUCKS! all of yall who disagree can just kiss my ass!

    I love both kelly Clarkson songs and good charlotte songs. I was even planning on dating Benji Madden once I became famous.(AND I WILL) He is just the hottest thing ever! Joel is really hot too, but I don’t think I would want to date him because I think Hilary is really awesome 2, and I wouldn’t want anything to happen to break them up. Of course, he probably wouldn’t like me anyways. I am nothing compared to the beauty and talent of hilary.

    I totally agree, though Kelly does have a ray of talent to have achieved what she did.

    In Conclusion:

    1. Good Charlotte DO suck. And anyone that denies that won’t understand actual music well enough to put up a good enough answer as to why they don’t, so don’t even bother, especially as most of you write like retards.

    2. Hilary Duff is a spoilt little whore that only got a record contract due to her little TV show (and probably sucking off the director).

    3. Kelly Clarkson is OKAY, as I do admit she can sing, though she is completely commercialized, she does have some original talent in there.

    4. All of you that slate Kelly Clarkson with no reasoning… I.e. “I HATE KELLY!!!!!1223090-” only dislike her cause you’re fat and ugly and want to look like her.

    5. People that call Kelly “fat” are pathetic little kids that watch too much TV and have been completely brainwashed by the media.

    I’ll get lots of hate from this, but considering I’ll never visit this page again, and am completely right whether you choose to believe it or not … I don’t actually care.

    Just please, attempt to type properly… please.

    i think Hilary Duff is to blame because it was all her idea.so she set up Benji.he had no other choice…i used to even like Hilary Duff but now as i think of it i think she is the worst singer…ppl don’t blame Bunji because it’s not his fault,it’s all Hilary Duff’s fault.

    GC is a pretty good band, but for Benji to be so rude and immature is very uncalled for. If he’s honestly 26 years old, he should act like it, cheesy bashes like that aren’t impressing anyone. That really upsets me, Kelly Clarkson is very talented and has really made something of herself since American Idol, she’s moved forward. Hilary Duff is talentless, she’s got a cute all-american blonde look and it has gotten her very far apparently. Plus, her family wasn’t exactly poor b4 she was famous. If Benji’s brother, Joel wasn’t involved with Duff, he probably wouldn’t have 2 words 2 say about Kelly. So to Benji, shut up for your own sake, judging someone based on your ignorance is quite pathetic.

    I have to say that Kelly Clarkson does have an insanely good voice and she is in a completely different class to Hilary Duff. Secondly, she takes an active part in producing and writing her songs, which as to my knowledge Hilary Duff does not do. Also, judging by the numerous tv interviews and American Idol itself Clarkson is far from a bitch. Anybody, including Good Charlotte that think Kelly is shit might want to look at the 6 million copies of Breakaway she has sold. I will leave it there….

    Hey well im a g.c. representer but i have to disagree with u benji. Kelly Cklarkson is a great singer so maybe she came from annoying show but if it wasnt for that we would have never heard her great voice she is one of the best out there and for hilary duff i respect the whole dating joel but you dont have to defend her just cause she is your brothers girlfriend she is old enough to do it herself. I personally think hilary duff sucks her music(beat of my heart, wake up) what kind of shit is that and i was watchin trl and hilary didnt even make it on the top 10 while kelly was #1 so i think you need to think twice maybe three time before you say hilary is better than kelly. plus kelly is healthy looking and the way hilary looks makes want to feed her some big macs cause she is to skinny and with her new fake theeth i wonder how joel kisses her well i cant wait and hear your new cd hopefully good like the others but i hope that hanging around hilary didnt change you too much Remember punk take it to the grave dont you forget well c u at your next concert

    First of all,C.L.W.,it’s Benji.Not Bengi!
    Hello?Kelly’s just joking about the ‘fight’ thing!Benji is just wanna be ‘more’ famous so he saids that!I agree with Kelly!
    Kelly (Rockin’ cool good great nice fun great voice princess) vs. Hilary (sweet princess ‘beat of my heart much?’ candy so can’t rock!)????
    That’s so obvious that Kelly is better!
    You’re all stupid taking Benji’s side!
