‘Since She’s Been Gone’: Eliminated ‘The Voice’ Contestant Attacks Kelly Clarkson on Instagram

Remember the good old days, when rejected contestants on American Idol used to just curse out Simon Cowell and wear bikinis and stuff? Now that social media exists, contestants on singing and other talent shows can now publicly broadcast their hurt feelings.

This is precisely what The Voice contestant Molly Stevens did on Instagram. After being eliminated, the singer posted an angry message directed towards Kelly Clarkson. Apparently, the judge compared Stevens to Melissa Etheridge and the Indigo Girls, and Stevens now feels this was a mistake.

“While I’m extremely honored to be in that category of talent I do believe that comment did us all a disservice and only threw us in a labeling trap,” she wrote. “It felt small minded to me and exactly what I feel we need to bring attention to in the world. I am a singer songwriter who happens to be gay. And so is @melissa_etheridge and @indigogirlsmusic.”

Kelly Clarkson responded to the accusation. She was quick to point out that she compared Stevens to these artists, and others, because of the interesting, raspy quality of her voice, and not the fact that they are all gay musicians.

Stevens has since deleted the Instagram, of course. She also apologized to Clarkson.

Not a very exciting end.
