"The Voice, literally, it's nearly full circle for me how I started singing", Clarkson, who kickstarted her career on Idol, exclusively told Us Weekly at the Television Critics Association in Pasadena, California, on Tuesday, January 9.
The show has not announced the artists whom Clarkson will mentor during the show's upcoming 14 season.
Kelly Clarkson isn't above giving her two children a little spank when needed, she's revealed during a radio interview. So we suspect she'll get a heaping helping of both mom shame and atta-girls for her latest truth parenting bomb.
To be clear, the American Idol alum confirmed she and Brandon and "done having kids!"
"I warn [River]. I'm like, "Hi, I'm going to spank you on your bottom if you don't stop right now" ... and honestly it's really helped". Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie will be tasked to find the next big name in the music industry.
The singer said, "I'm not above a spanking, which people aren't necessarily into". "Just because I was in the first one that everybody kind of watched". "The ones that aren't insecure or threatened".
Her 3-year-old daughter, River Rose, has learned her lesson and stopped doing things that her mother told her not to do.
For now it seems the singer is planning to continue to spank her kids when she thinks the situation demands it.
She said: "Meryl Streep caressed my face on the red carpet, so that would probably be my favourite moment of life - other than childbirth, I'm supposed to do that". One poster said that spanking is "proven to be detrimental to kids", while others said that it was simply "wrong" and perpetuates "physical fear tactics".
The Voice Season 14 premieres on February 26, Monday, at 8 p.m. on NBC.
