Sponsored by Cigar Company, Kelly Clarkson Is Under Fire


Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids wants the singer to take action against Indonesian tobacco company that puts the brand's logo on the promotional posters.

Anti-smoking protesters have taken aim at pop star Kelly Clarkson for lighting up a fuming feud in Indonesia by appearing in billboard ads for cigarette company Djarum. The tobacco firm's bosses are sponsoring the "Since U Been Gone" hitmaker's April 29 concert in Jakarta - and they've splashed their L.A. Lights brand logo all over posters advertising the show.

The marketing ploy comes two years after Alicia Keys objected to a similar tobacco-fueled sponsorship deal in Indonesia. The "No One" singer insisted the cigarette logo was removed from all ads promoting her Jakarta concert, and U.S.-based anti-smoking groups want Clarkson to do the same.

Matt Myers, the president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, tells the Associated Press, "If Kelly Clarkson goes ahead with the concert, she is by choice being a spokesman for the tobacco industry and helping them to market to children."

"She has the power now to turn this situation around and to send a clear message to Indonesian young people and, frankly, to the young people of the world."
