The vocalist of OneRepublic confirmed that he is involved in the making of Kelly Clarkson's next studio installment despite controversy over song 'Already Gone'.
Kelly Clarkson apparently has left behind her beef with Ryan Tedder as they have reunited for her upcoming fifth studio album. Opening up about that matter was the frontman of OneRepublic himself in a recent interview.
"I'm working on stuff for her next album and am personally over any of the drama between the two of us," Ryan told The Denver Post. The vocalist furthermore commented on the similarity of Kelly's "Already Gone" and Beyonce Knowles' "Halo". He said, "It's silly. 'Already Gone' is now a bigger hit than 'Halo' was, so I think she's probably happy, too."
On Kelly's recently-leaked song "Wash, Rinse, Repeat", Ryan didn't rule out any possibility that the "American Idol" singer slams him on the track. He stated, "I'm pretty sure that song was 'somewhat' about me ... and her record label."
But, the 30-year-old singer/songwriter didn't despise it. He gushed, "I actually like it - I think Kelly speaks her mind regardless of anything. She's great with lyrics, and I love that she is her own person. She's no puppet."
