Kelly Clarkson Praised for Taking Aim at iHeartRadio Over Her Music

The 'American Idol' alum calls out the radio network for not playing her music on iHeartRadio's channels.

AceShowbiz - iHeartRadio's congratulatory message to Kelly Clarkson apparently didn't sit too well with the songstress. After the radio network tweeted a message praising Kelly for being multi talented, she replied that she did everything besides getting her music played on iHeartRadio's channels.

Kelly also mentioned the fact that she was invited to perform at the iHeartRadio Music Festival this coming weekend even though her songs were never played on the radio. "I guess I'm cool enough to invite, but not cool enough to play my record," she tweeted, adding the hashtags #truth, #check and #seeyasaturday. She also tagged the post with the title of her album, "Meaning of Life".

Fans were quick to jump in the reply section of the post to heap praises for the "American Idol" alum for having the courage to speak up. "You did great snapping. They should respect your value as ARTIST," one said, as another follower called her an "inspiration." One other, meanwhile, said, "This is why we love you! In addition to your incredible talent, you are not afraid to speak the truth!"

Kelly will be taking the stage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival at T-Mobile Arena is Las Vegas. Besides the songstress, other performers who will grace the stage include Chidish Gambino (Donald Glover), Mariah Carey, Justin Timberlake, Sam Smith and Carrie Underwood.

It was also recently announced that her daytime talk show, "The Kelly Clarkson Show", has been picked up by NBC and is slated to premiere in fall next year. Aside from hosting the show, Kelly will serve as executive producer along with Brandon Blackstock.

Kelly teased the news when she appeared in the Tuesday, September 18 episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon". She said, "We're doing a live segment during my show. So every night on tour, we're going live online." The songstress also teased that there would be "fan request thing" on her show.
