Kelly Clark Mistaken For ‘American Idol’ Star
Olympian snowboarder Kelly Clark and American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson have been mistaken for one another. While their names and Twitter handles are similar (@kellyclarkfdn and @kelly_clarkson) their pastimes are completely unrelated.
Clark is a gold-medal Olympian and five-time winner of the Winter X Games in the halfpipe.
Kelly Clarkson is the season-one winner American Idol and a three-time Grammy winning artist.
“I would say at least five times a week I get some pretty funny Kelly Clarkson misinterpretations, like, ‘I love your music’ or ‘Congratulations on getting married!’” Clark said.
While that constant confusion could get annoying to some people, Clark is totally loving it.
“I’m like, ‘This is amazing.’”
The snowboarder and singer also have very similar looks. The two are even close in age with Clark being 30 years old and Clarkson just a year older at 31.
People are even mistaking them online, tweeting at the wrong Kelly.
In November 2012, someone tweeted a photo of dancers surrounding Kelly Clarkson with this message: “Performing at the AMAs with the coolest girl in school, Kelly Clark @ American Music Awards at Nokia Theater.”
Another Clarkson fan tweeted: “MUSIC IS LOVE THANK YOU!!” and included Twitter handles of numerous musicians including Kelly Clark.
A spokeswoman for Clarkson said she was unavailable for comment because she was “enjoying time with her new family and preparing for her baby.”
