Kelly Clarkson Blames Songwriter For Beyonce Song Similarity

(ohnotheydidnt) If you've noticed similarities between Kelly Clarkson's new single "Already Gone" and Beyonce's hit "Halo," well, you're not the only one. Turns out Clarkson has also noticed, and she's not too happy about it.

In an interview with Canada's CBC radio network, the former "American Idol" champ said she was unaware of any similarities between her song and Beyoncé's "Halo" until she heard the two songs side by side (according to Clarkson, her All I Ever Wanted album was finished before Beyoncé's I Am ... Sasha Fierce was released). And she's not mincing words about who she blames for the similarities: OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote both songs.

"Ryan and I met each other at the record label, before he was working with anyone else. He's from Oklahoma, I'm from Texas; we got along really well and had some of the same influences," Clarkson said. "We wrote about six songs together, four or five of them made the album. It was all fine and dandy. I'd never heard of a song called 'Halo' ... [Beyoncé's] album came out when my album was already being printed.

"No one's gonna be sittin' at home, thinkin' 'Man, Ryan Tedder gave Beyoncé and Kelly the same track to write to,' " she continued. "No, they're just gonna be sayin' I ripped someone off. I called Ryan and said, 'I don't understand. Why would you do that?' "
