Kelly Clarkson recently opened up about her first GRAMMYs back in 2006 when she won for Best Pop Vocal album and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance with the song “Since U Been Gone.” The singer was emotional but not for the reasons you might think. Clarkson had been told at the doctor before the big show that she had cancerous results.
“I go the whole day, and I like completely cried; they had to redo my make up like four times. I was like, ‘Wow, I’m so young’ and was completely freaking out,” Clarkson recalled. (Quote via Health.com)
“When I won, I thought, ‘Oh my God, this is God, he’s like giving me one cool thing before something horrible happens.’ Nobody knew because obviously I didn’t want to talk about it,” she added.
Afterward, though, the performer found out that her diagnosis wasn’t correct.
“I went [to the doctor] the next day, and they apologized for mixing up results. I was like, ‘Are you for real?! You completely ruined my entire…’ You know, first time for an artist, as a kid watching the Grammys, that’s a big dream. It was kind of the worst greatest day. And then the next day, also was the worst greatest day because I wanted to like punch someone,” she adds with a laugh. “I was like, ‘Who mixes up results?’ And why wouldn’t we test again?”
