Kelly Clarkson apologizes to Clive Davis

After months of feuding with Clive Davis, President of RCA Records, Kelly Clarkson is apologizing and making an attempt to play nice. It looks a little like damage control to me.

“I want to set the record straight on this by saying that I want my band, my advisors, those close to me and my record label to be one big, tightly knit family,” the 25-year-old singer said Monday in a statement posted on her Web site.

“Like any family we will disagree and argue sometimes but, in the end, it’s respect and admiration that will keep us together.”

“A lot has been made in the press about my relationship with Clive,” the former “American Idol” said in her statement. “Much of this has been blown way out of proportion and out of context.”

“Contrary to recent characterizations in the press, I’m well aware that Clive is one of the great record men of all time,” her statement said. “He has been a key advisor and has been an important force in my success to date.”

“I really regret how this has turned out and I apologize to those whom I have done disservice,” she said. “I would never intentionally hurt anyone. I love music, and I love the people I am blessed to work with.”

I guess it’s pretty obvious who won that pissing contest.
