Raleigh's Molly Stevens faced off against Justin Kilgore for team Kelly Clarkson this week in the Battle Rounds of The Voice, and in the end it was Molly who was sent home.
Seems she had a lot to say after being eliminated, and ripped Kelly Clarkson in a since deleted Instagram post!
Molly tore into Kelly, calling her "small minded" for comparing her to Melissa Etheridge and Indigo Girls. Since Stevens is gay, and so is Etheridge and the Indigo Girls, she felt Clarkson was comparing her to those two artists solely for that reason."While I'm extremely honored to be in that category of talent I do believe that comment did us all a disservice and only threw us into a labeling trap," she wrote. Take a look at the post...
Word got back to Kelly very quickly, and she stepped up on Twitter to defend herself. "Wow. This really bums me out," she started her tweet.
Kelly pointed out that while she did compare Stevens to Etheridge and Indigo Girls, she also compared her to Patty Griffin, "a name that was left out conveniently," she wrote.
She then went on to say how she likened Stevens to those singers because she sounded like them, not for any other reason.
After seeing Clarkson's tweet, Stevens deleted the comment directed at her and wrote her an apology. "I'm truly sorry. I hope our paths will cross soon so I can tell you this in person," she said.
I am so sorry to have caused any pain and hurt with anyone. Learned my lesson to not process my thoughts on social media today. Especially the day after being aired on The Voice. I’m truly sorry. I hope our paths will cross soon so I can tell you this in person.— Molly Stevens Music (@mollystevens_1) March 27, 2018
