Kelly Clarkson, 41, flaunts her newly slender figure in a skintight top and belted skirt… after losing weight this summer (but she STILL won’t say how)
Kelly Clarkson has been looking very slimmed-down these days after losing weight this summer when she moved from Los Angeles to New York City.
On Tuesday the 41-year-old American Idol veteran showed off her incredible shape yet again in a skintight black turtleneck top when on her talk show.
And she added a long black-and-beige snakeskin print skirt with a black belt that highlighted her tiny waistline. The looker also had on black platform heels that added another six inches to her petite frame.
Her guest for the day was Saved By The Bell actor turned TV host Mario Lopez and country music singer Shane McAnally.
‘Hanging out with our friends Mario Lopez and Shane McAnally today on Kelly! PLUS the debut of Broadway in 6A with the cast of Shucked!’ she wrote on her Instagram caption.

On the program, Mario said 50 is the new 30.
‘It kind of messed with me a little bit…but then I just kind of leaned into it!’ Mario shared about coming to terms with turning 50, and celebrating his 40th year in the entertainment business.
Mario also dishes on hosting the new game show Blank Slate on the Game Show Network, and covering this year’s awards season red carpets with Access Hollywood.
And he touched on this year at NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony.
‘It looked like we were in freaking Whoville!’ Mario said of his and Kelly’s experience at the event.
Kelly also said she had a last-minute wardrobe change because it was so cold.

This comes after Kelly’s ex-husband Brandon Blackstock was ordered to return $2.6m on booking fees he overcharged her for.
This comes after Blackstock reportedly overcharged her by millions when he represented the pop star as her manager.
A California labor commissioner ruled Blackstock, 46, ‘unlawfully’ booked jobs for Clarkson – including inking her deal as a judge on The Voice – while employed as her manager, as only agents can secure roles for talent, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.

Blackstock collected fees for booking The Voice and other endorsements like Wayfair and Norwegian Cruise Line in the amount of $2,641,374, per the outlet.
The labor commissioner ordered Blackstock to return the commissions – which includes the $1.98 million for The Voice gig – to his ex-wife.
The outlet reported that Blackstock said he will appeal the decision.
The slim-down fueled speculation that she had turned to surgery – or the new celebrity favorite, Ozempic – to shed the pounds.
Kelly has yet to publicly address her transformation, but a source has insisted that she will speak openly with fans if she has used Ozempic.
‘If she were to have taken Ozempic, or if she were to take it in the future, she would be the first person to share that with the world,’ they said.
And she also chatted up country music singer Shane McAnally (seen next to Kelly with the Shucked cast). ‘Hanging out with our friends Mario Lopez and Shane McAnally today on Kelly! PLUS the debut of Broadway in 6A with the cast of Shucked!’ she wrote on her Instagram caption
‘She wouldn’t keep that a secret. She is very transparent and real, and that is the person she always has been. Kelly doesn’t BS anyone.’
Her divorce, relocating from Los Angeles to New York City, and wanting to be ‘healthier’ for her children – River Rose, nine, and Remington Alexander, seven – are all thought to be behind her decision to focus on her well-being.
‘She is now in New York, and the stresses of divorce and those who talked about the toxic work environment at her show have really taken all the toll they could, and now her well-being and health are more of a focus for her and that improvement is now happening,’ the source continued.
‘She is making better life decisions and making decisions that are right for her and her family.

‘Now that she is a single mom, she wants to be healthy for her kids and be around for a long time, so just like everything else, she has maintained her new life and her weight with a structure of doing things the old-fashioned way, through hard work.’
Kelly first flaunted her new figure on Instagram on Saturday as she prepared for an appearance on Jimmy Fallon.
Predictably, fans were quick to comment on the sizzling new snap, with many questioning if she had used Ozempic – a medication used to treat type 2 Diabetes but also has a weight loss side effect.
Celebrities including Sharon Osbourne, Tracy Morgan and Amy Schumer have all used Ozempic.
Kelly, who won the first season of American Idol in 2002, also showed off her slimmed down form while attending the We Can Survive concert in support of mental health awareness on October 14.

According to a source close to Kelly (pictured left in March 2022), she likely had ‘a little nudge from somewhere’
In 2020 she admitted that she felt ‘more pressure’ in the music industry when she was thin.
The Since U Been Gone singer said that she used to be shown naked magazine covers of women and told ‘this is what you’re competing with.’
‘I felt more pressure. It was more of magazines shoved in front of you and, ‘This is what you’re competing with and we’ve got to compete with it.’ I can’t compete with that. That’s not even my image. That’s not who I am. That’s who they are,’ she told Glamour UK.
Kelly and her ex, Brandon, were married for seven years before they split in 2020, setting off a protracted bout of legal squabbling over money.
The divorce dragged on for a year and a half before it was ultimately finalized in March of 2022. It led to a brutal custody fight between the exes, with Clarkson eventually securing primary custody.
Kelly released a bitter break-up album earlier this year called Chemistry that detailed the ‘good, the bad and the ugly’ of her relationship with Brandon.
She recently moved to New York City with their children for a ‘fresh start’ and will now host her self-titled talk show out of the Big Apple.
