    Clive Davis Responds to Kelly Clarkson's Criticism of His Memoir: "I Had Every Fact Checked"

    Mr. Know It All, indeed! One day after Kelly Clarkson wrote a scathing review Tuesday, Feb. 19 of his new memoir, The Soundtrack of My Life, Clive Davis responded to her claims, countering he had everything fact-checked.

    In a lengthy Twitter response of his own Feb. 20, Davis said, "As anyone who has read The Soundtrack of My Life 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 that she has decided to take issue with what I know to be an accurate depiction of our time together."

    Clarkson, 30, took major issue with many of Davis' accounts of their time together, charging that her former mentor "bullied" her. "I just have to clear up his memory lapses and misinformation for myself and for my fans," she wrote on her WhoSay blog. "It feels like a violation."

    "First, he says I burst into 'hysterical sobbing' in his office when he demanded 'Since You Been Gone' be on my album. Not true at all," she said of her 2004 album Breakaway. "I cried because he hated [Because of You] and told me verbatim that I was a 's--tty writer who should be grateful for the gifts that he bestows upon me.'"

    But Davis argues that his memory of their interactions is completely accurate.

    "Before the book was published, I had every fact checked with five independent individuals who were present on a daily basis throughout it all," he wrote in his response to the American Idol singer's claims. "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."

    The "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" singer, however, probably isn't interested in his well wishes. She concluded her note on Davis' book by writing, "I love my label and all of my professional relationships . . . now. And I am grateful for Clive for teaching me to know the difference."

    This makes him look even more like a bully. He should just shut up already.

    Team Kelly. Because of You is a fantastic song and many patients are attracted to the lyrics and find strength from her words.
    I like having the articles bc my filter at work and most travel locations (which is pretty damn ridiculous) won't let us go to those sites because they are classified as entertainment/gossip/forum. I am still dumbfounded as to why gossip rocks does not fit into any of those categories. Please keep dodging the filters!

    I have never liked him. Some things that he allegedly said about R&B black music while grooming Whitney's career really bugged me. Just another nasty rich old queen to me.

    Howard Stern Slams Clive Davis Over Kelly Clarkson Comments: "I Find It Sickening"

    Howard Stern is adding his voice to the very public, very messy back-and-forth between Kelly Clarkson and Clive Davis. The radio shock jock, who is known more often for slamming celebrities than defending them, took a surprisingly sympathetic stance toward the American Idol alum's accusations that Davis had "bullied" her during their collaborations -- and mischaracterized her in his memoir, The Soundtrack of My Life.

    "I always find it sickening when management guys like to set the record straight about how f--king creative and what geniuses they are," Stern said on his show on Wednesday, Feb. 20. "And, like, this guy's trying to diminish what she does? Doesn't he have enough in life? Can't he sort of tell his story without f--king degrading her and putting her down?"

    Earlier this week, Clarkson, 30, took to her blog to slam what she called Davis' "memory lapses and misinformation."

    "First, he says I burst into 'hysterical sobbing' in his office when he demanded 'Since U Been Gone' be on my album. Not true at all," she wrote of her 2004 album Breakaway. "I cried because he hated ["Because of You"] and told me verbatim that I was a 's--tty writer who should be grateful for the gifts that he bestows upon me.'"

    The legendary 80-year-old record producer defended the details of his memoir, though he did own up to "a few creative differences' in their years working together.

    "As anyone who has read The Soundtrack of My Life knows, I think Kelly Clarkson is a tremendous vocal talent and performer," he wrote on Twitter one day later, on Wednesday, Feb. 20. "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 that she has decided to take issue with what I know to be an accurate depiction of our time together."

    Stern's comments Wednesday similarly praised Clarkson's vocal prowess, though he too saw Davis' memoir as a knock on the "Stronger" singer's talents.

    "I think she has an amazing voice, and the girl has worked hard to get to where she is," he said. "I don't understand Clive Davis' motivation for knocking this chick down."

    The 59-year-old radio host is no stranger to controversy himself, having come under fire earlier this year after calling Girls creator Lena Dunham a "little fat girl" and likening the HBO show's sex scenes to "rape" -- he offered Dunham an on-air apology a few days later.

    "It makes me feel bad, and I think she is getting the impression that I somehow think she's just a talentless little fat chick," he said.

    Clive Davis and his fact-checking bullshit doesn't mean a thing when it comes down to a conversation between Davis and Kelly Clarkson. Then it becomes just a he said/she said argument. Kelly wanted more creative control of her second album and Clive didn't want her to have it. So they let her make the album and then they talked it down, didn't promote it, didn't release more than one single from the album, described it as a failure and basically tried to humble Kelly Clarkson. So kudos to Kelly for standing up for herself and her music.

    As for Clive Davis being bisexual? He's a disgusting old creep -- who cares who he slept with?
