Between coaching on The Voice, hosting the recent Billboard Music Awards, and raising her four kids, Kelly Clarkson has certainly been busy lately. But after almost every appearance, something about the star seems to surface as a topic of conversation: Kelly's weight.

As she told the last year: "Too skinny, too fat, too blonde—so much blah. This is who I am and I'm happy. Happy looks different on everyone."
