The singer who won the first season of 'American Idol' tells her soon-to-be ex to back off, and gives fans a closer look at her 'Wall of Doubt'.
Days leading to the premiere of music video for her new single "Mr. Know It All", Kelly Clarkson dropped an official sneak peek to the clip. The teaser gives a glimpse of the 29-year-old singer facing the guy she's about to dump and confronting him about his controlling behavior.
Kelly also gives a closer look at the "Wall of Doubt" created as a background for her performance scene. A newspaper clipping that's "basically all the crap" people talked about her, it bears such news headlines as "The Win Went to Her Head" and "Creative Differences With Label".
"The whole point of the song that I like is 'you don't know a thing about me.' I love that concept because it's ignorant to think you know everything about a person," she once dished on the concept. "There's many sides to everybody's personality. We're kind of doing a variety of different Kellys."
The "Mr. Know It All" video is directed by Justin Francis (Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey) and will be premiered on Monday, September 26. A month later, "Stronger", the album where the single appears, will be made available for purchase across the U.S. on October 24.
