Kelly Clarkson shared a powerful women’s empowerment moment on The Kelly Clarkson Show with her guest interviewee, Selena Gomez.

Gomez stopped by to discuss how her new album, Rare, helped her find her own identity through certain periods of time in her life. During the interview, Gomez opened up to Kelly about why she considers Rare her most self-realized album yet saying, “Because I started so young, there’s a huge part of me that didn’t get a chance to develop my identity in a normal setting.” She continues,” I’ve constantly been trying to make my music better and better because, you know, I know that people may not think I’m the greatest singer, but I just work my ass off and I really love writing and creating and creating melodies and growing. I felt like this was my chance to say all the things I wanted to say in that way. I wanted it to feel good.”

Before the interview proceeded, host, Kelly Clarkson was quick to circle back and contradict Selena’s remarks about her singing ability. “The best singer in the world — talking to everyone in the world right now — is not the loudest and is not the, you know, ‘Oh my god, you have to sing like Whitney Houston every time you get,” says Clarkson. Kelly continued saying, “The best singers in the world move you, and that comes from all different sounds and styles. So, like, from a singer to a singer, it’s beautiful what you do. I love your record and I love singing your music; it means something and it moves people. So don’t ever negate your gift ’cause it’s powerful.”

It is just so beautiful witnessing women empower one another. To check out more clips from this interview, be sure subscribe to The Kelly Clarkson Show on YouTube.
