A Preview of Stronger
Following several red herrings this summer (Clarkson says she felt ”robbed” by the glut of tracks that leaked online without her knowledge), Stronger‘s first single, ”Mr. Know It All,” will debut live via webcast on Aug. 30. ”I can’t wait to perform it,” she says. ”It’s everything I am as a woman and a singer. I love telling men off!” she quips. But Clarkson’s already got her own favorite among the radio-friendly mix.
