Controversy Makes Kelly Smile

It's been quite a year for Kelly Clarkson. From the look of this outfit she was caught wearing at the airport in NYC, it may be taking its toll.

The Grammy-winning singer was looking more like a 15-year-old pizza boy than a young starlet. All she's missing is her skateboard! Not that we're expecting her to doll it up just to spend a few hours on a plane, but this thrown-together neo-emo mess is starting to be a signature look for the idol winner.

A little effort will go a long way ... as you can see.
