And in October she clarified some comments she made to Attitude magazine about battling her weight.

“When I was really skinny I wanted to kill myself,” the publication quoted her as saying. “I was miserable, like inside and out, for four years of my life. But no one cared, because aesthetically you make sense.”

She later tweeted to say that being thin was a result of her unhappiness, not the cause.

“Just to clear something up. I wasn’t ever miserable because I had to be thin,” Clarkson said on Twitter in response to a CNN article. “I said I was miserable & as a result I became thin.”
