But it looks like her next one will be crossing back over to a “Dark”-er place.
The “Mr. Know It All” singer talked with Z100 recently to discuss her Super Bowl performance (“I never want to do it again!”), her coping mechanisms (“When I get really nervous, I just want to hurt people”), and what she wants her next single to be.
“I like ‘Dark Side’ because it’s still got a beat to it,” Clarkson said. “It’s a sweet-sounding song but with a dark lyric, and I like that.”
Kelly fans, what do you think about the choice? Is there another cut off the album — perhaps the bouncier “I Forgive You” — that you think would make a better single? To help refresh your memory, give “Dark Side” a listen in the video below:
