Kelly Clarkson tweets angrily about leaked song

Posted on

As noted by Idolator, the online leak of a track known as “Cleopatra” today has inspired not one but two furious Twitter messages from the star. First, about an hour ago: “‘Cleopatra’ is NOT a song on my next record! It was written for another artist! I have no idea how it leaked, it’s a rough demo, unfinished!” Then, minutes later: “I’m so tired of disrespecting, lying, sneaky little trolls that pretend to be human.” At least, we’re assuming that the second tweet was also about “Cleopatra.” It’s possible that Clarkson just coincidentally bumped into a mean old troll guarding a bridge shortly after hearing of the leak.

Funny thing is, “Cleopatra” is not bad at all. It’s clear enough that it’s an unfinished demo, and Idolator is quite right that it leans more toward hip-hop/dance-pop than anything Clarkson has done in years. Still: Kinda catchy! Let us know what you think of this contretemps in the comments below.
