Kelly Clarkson:

I Won't Change for Anyone!

5/19/2007 3:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kelly Clarkson is definitely Miss Independent now -- giving the "screw you" treatment to her record label and doing what she wants for her new album.

At a photo shoot for Entertainment Weekly, featuring Kelly as its covergirl, Clarkson stands by her new music, saying, "This album's different, it's better as a record and it's better as in singles (sic)," and added that artists should "never be afraid to step outside of the bubble."

Kally ClarksonRumors flew last week that record label honcho Clive Davis wanted to scrap the original American Idol's new album, "My December," but TMZ learned Kelly refused to compromise with him over the material, most of which she co-wrote.

"My December" drops July 24, her EW interview is on stands now.

As much as I dislike Clive Davis, I have to admit he may be right about My December if the song she sang at the finale is any indication of the content of the cd. Kelly has a fantastic voice, I just wish she would sing and not scream. Disagreeing with the PTB and having the good girl, Carrie out there and now Jordan, another girl with a big voice like Kelly's may make her dispensible.

I've gotta say that even though manufactured pop has never been my thing, you' ve got to give major props to Kelly on this one!! She is the only performer to come out of a reality TV show, who I am more that happy to call a genuine artist!!
