Kelly Clarkson Says She Gave Up 'Millions' in Songwriting Royalties to Show How Much She Dislikes Dr. Luke
"I was like, 'I don't want my name near his.
I want to pretend this didn't happen in my life and I want to forget it.'" Kelly Clarkson has revealed she willingly lost "hundreds of thousands of dollars," "or millions," in royaltiesÂ for refusing to associate herself withÂ Dr. Luke as aÂ co-writer on her 2009 singleÂ "My Life Would Suck Without You." In a new interview with Z100, the singer said,Â "I was making a point to the people working with me, going, 'This is how much I didn't want to do this.' I don't care about the money. I don't care about, oh, 'You're going to be the most famous person ever if you do this.' That's not what holds weight in my life." Last year,Â Clarkson allegedÂ that those who worked at herÂ record label at the time, RCA (owned by parent company Sony), said they would not releaseÂ her album if she did not work with Dr. Luke.
