Kelly Clarkson reveals she's 'not above spanking' while disciplining her kids

"I think when you're younger and, especially in this kind of industry where everybody's always applauding you or even if they're talking bad or good, they're still talking about you".

It wasn't all fun for Kelly though, as she admitted she was craving a cup of tea for the whole evening, and had to resort to sipping on wine when she discovered the event wasn't serving the hot beverage. "News", Kelly explained that it was the idea of the blind audition, which eliminates any bias towards physical appearance, that lured her into working as a coach on "The Voice". The OG American Idol victor said she learns as much from her kids as they learn from her and Blackstock.

"The Voice, literally, it's nearly full circle for me how I started singing", Clarkson, who kickstarted her career on Idol, exclusively told Us Weekly at the Television Critics Association in Pasadena, California, on Tuesday, January 9. This is Kelly's first season as a coach, and she'll join experienced coaches Blake Shelton, Alicia Keys and Adam Levine. But I am a pop star and this is the image that I exude. Filming has already started on the 14th season of the reality series. "I mean, I think artists in general love helping other artists, right? The ones that aren't insecure or threatened".

"I'm not above a spanking, which people aren't necessarily into and I don't mean like hitting her hard, I just mean a spanking", Clarkson told 98.9 The Buzz in Rochester, New York.

When The Voice returns from its winter hiatus on February 26, it will mark Kelly Clarkson's first season as a coach for the NBC series. Meanwhile, American Idol returns on March 11 on ABC.

She justified her parenting further saying, "My parents spanked me and I did fine in life and I feel fine about it".

The 35-year-old singer is mother to three-year-old daughter River and 21-month-old son Remington with husband Brandon Blackstock, as well as being stepmother to his two children from a previous relationship.
