Wow. This story is…something else, and we’re only just now hearing about it! Kelly Clarkson revealed she had a cancer scare the DAY OF the 2006 Grammy’s where she was nominated for and WON 2 awards, E! Online reports. Could you imagine?!
“Well, not many people know this—not to be a Debbie Downer—but I was told that morning that I had cancerous results for something,” the singer said in a recent podcast. “Here’s the horrible part: I went the whole day crying. They redid my makeup like four times because I was like, ‘Wow, so young.’ I was just completely freaking out. Then when I won, I thought, ‘Oh my God. This is like God giving me one more thing before something horrible happens.'”
She went on to recall, “I went to the doctor’s the next day and they apologized for mixing up results. And I was like, ‘Are you for real?! I was like, ‘You completely ruined my entire [experience].’ The first time for an artist…as a kid watching the Grammys, that was a big dream! It was kind of the worst/greatest day. And the next day was also the worst/greatest day because I wanted to punch someone. I was like, ‘Who mixes up results? Why wouldn’t you test again?’ It was very much a roller coaster ride, that day, for me. So, it’s kind of unfortunate, but a lot of the moments got stolen from that mishap. But hey, I didn’t have cancer!”
Omg! Looking back, she was very emotional in her speeches. Not that winning a Grammy isn’t an emotional moment, but it makes more sense now. I’m sure mix-ups happen somewhat often but not to someone the day they’re about to win 2 Grammy’s!
