Kelly Clarkson -- I Didn't Steal From Beyonce!

7/27/2009 2:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kelly Clarkson is so worried that people are going to think she ripped off Beyonce's beats for her new single that Kelly's throwing her song's co-writer under the bus instead.


Clarkson is reportedly furious at her record label for releasing her new single "Already Gone" -- after the singer realized it has the exact same backing track as Beyonce's "Halo."

But according to CBCNews.ca, who actually spoke with Clarkson, the former "Idol" champ is blaming the whole thing on music producer Ryan Tedder -- who allegedly gave the same beat to Beyonce without informing Kelly. FYI -- Tedder is also the front man for the band OneRepublic.

Clarkson told the CBC, "No one's gonna be sittin' at home, thinking 'Man, Ryan Tedder gave Beyonce and Kelly the same track to write to ... no, they're just gonna be saying I ripped someone off."

Can't believe Clarkson got 54% , you racists!

Ryan Tedder is a busy guy, Kelly , he is not there to organize the sharing of the beats he creates! Since Beyonce put her song out earlier, you should have just admit you used the same tune or either cancel the single's release.

Well, she already stole from "Turn My Camera On" by Spoon on her song "All I Ever Wanted"... why not make it 2 unoriginal songs?

Stop hating on KC people and TMZ. And Kelly did not rip off from Beyonce'. Like Kelly said her and Tedder worked together before he worked with any other artist. After that Beyonce' went to some guy who was mixing "Already Gone" and she overheard it and loved so she went to Tedder and demanded to have that sounded like that so he gave her "Halo" which was originally for Leona Lewis but she didn't have to recorded so it was just sitting there till he gave to Beyonce' but when he did he change the music to it to wear it sounded like "Already Gone'. Man I have lost my respect towards Ryan Tedder. And I love how Beyonce' has writing credits on the songs and she probably did squat on the song so I also say Kelly deserves to have writing credits on "Halo", she deserves it more than Beyonce'. And Kelly not wanting to release "Already Gone" in respect towards Beyonce' just goes to show what a awesome person KC is. "Halo" is good but "Already Gone" is way better it's a song that comes from the heart and more people can probably relate to it more. To ones who say Kelly has no talent your wrong and just jealous. Hello the girl did win a singing competition and every since album #1 she has wrote on all of her records, not like 30% percent but 98% of it, and 100% of it on third records. She's one of the worlds best vocalist and songwriters which she has won four or five songwritintg awards. And her last record just goes to show how talented she is.

Both songs begin with the word "remember", lmfao.

Clarkson is far more talented, however, neither artists write their own music or lyrics. Neither are to blame.

Jay-Z needs to get with Rhianna and leave that broke, washed up bitch Beyonce.

Shut up, Kelly didn't steal anything. Besides, she is ten times better than Beyonce & anyone else. TAKE THAT, REWIND IT BACK!

If any of these so-called "artists" had talent they would write their own lyrics and music and maybe even learn to play an instrument or two. Today's music is nothing but pre-packaged crap fed to the masses who will blindly buy anything.

atleast it is not like Darkchild giving two different artists the SAME song!

look up Jennifer Lopez "If You Had My Love" and Chante Moore "If I Gave Love"

and I am not 100% but i THINK the baseline is VERY similar to a couple of OTHER tunes he gave to different artists...i.e. Brandy...

fortunately i like the songs but i am JUST sayin.....

I LIKE KELLY CLARKSON'S SONG WAY BETTER. BEYONCE IS AN UGLY COPYCAT, SHE HAS STOLEN OTHER PEOPLE'S SONGS AND TAKEN CREDIT FOR WRITING SONGS THAT SHE DID NOT WRITE.
