Kelly Clarkson Blackballed Over Clive Davis Feud

American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson Blackballed in the music industry for publicly attacking Clive Davis.

Kelly Clarkson seems to be getting shunned by her peers. In a new interview with BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw, the “Heartbeat Song” singer says she has approached several other artists to collaborate with but every single one of them has said no.
“I honestly would collaborate with a lot of people, but everyone usually says no. I’m not kidding you. I have legitimately asked several people who I’m not going to call out. And that’s cool, but I don’t know,” a disappointed Clarkson told Grimshaw, adding that she feels like she “has the plague or something” since no other artists seem to want to work with her.
Sources in the music industry tell us there’s more to it than artists simply not wanting to work with Clarkson, however. One of the main reasons being Clive Davis.
As you may recall, back in 2013 Davis and Clarkson were famously at odds over the her music and excerpts of his book, and the two went on a he said she said tirade which wound up with Clarkson calling Davis a “bully” and a liar. Despite Clarkson’s attempt at discrediting Davis, he issued a statement with nothing but kind words for the pop singer, saying: “As anyone who has read my book knows, I think Kelly Clarkson is a tremendous vocal talent and performer. In the book, I provide an in-depth look at our years together during which we shared major multi-platinum success, as well as a few creative differences. I am truly very sorry she has decided to take issue with what I know to be an accurate depiction of our time together. Before the book was published, I had every fact checked with five independent individuals who were present on a daily basis throughout it all. The chapter as it is written was thoroughly verified by each and every one of them. I stand by the chapter as written in my book. At the same time I wish, and will always wish, Kelly’s talent and her career to soar to ever new heights.”
While what happened took place 2 years ago, it is still fresh in the minds of many in the industry and none have taken too kindly to it. “People don’t just forget about things like that,” one music executive told us when we reached out for comment. “Clive is a highly respected music industry professional. Kelly is a tremendous talent in her own right, but a lot of the people she has recently reached out to have worked with Clive or know of people who have, and they have a huge problem agreeing to work with someone who shows such flippancy and discourtesy towards someone who helped her get to where she is today.” 
In other words, they’re saying don’t bite the hand that feeds you.
