Singer Kelly Clarkson’s latest album “Stronger” has gained momentum in sales reportedly on both Amazon and iTunes digital sales charts following her controversial endorsement of Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul.
On last Thursday, Kelly Clarkson wrote “I love Ron Paul,” adding that she liked him during the last republican nomination and says if “he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012” then he’s got her vote.
Clarkson’s followers didn’t all agree with the singer, who came under fire from some fans.
Many of Clarkson’s fans urged her not to back the candidate who’s been in the mix of controversial allegations concerning racist statements including his stands on gay rights and the death penalty.
Clarkson insured her fans though that she does “not support racism” but does “support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights.”
Clarkson says she “likes Ron Paul because he believes in less government and letting the people (all of us) make the decision.”
Clarkson, who kicks off her “Stronger” tour on January 13th, added that out of all the Republican presidential candidates, Ron Paul is her “favorite.”
