    Kelly Clarkson’s Beyoncé Rip-Off?

    Kelly Clarkson’s album has "already gone" to the presses—and she’s none too happy about it. The Idol winner wrote the lyrics to her third single on the album, “Already Gone,” and paired them with music by Ryan Tedder. The only problem: unbeknownst to Clarkson, Tedder had already supplied the track to Beyoncé for her popular single, “Halo.” Realizing that Tedder had two-timed her, Clarkson frantically tried to recall the album—but it had already shipped. Clarkson said that she fought to stop the single’s release, but in the end, her label, RCA, went ahead with it anyway. “No one’s gonna be sittin’ at home, thinking ‘Man, Ryan Tedder gave Beyoncé and Kelly the same track to write to,” Clarkson said. “No, they’re just gonna be saying I ripped someone off.”
