While she insisted her experience with Dr. Luke is nothing like Kesha's alleged experience -- "He didn't do anything like that with me," she said in the Z100 interview, referring to Kesha's allegations of abuse and her ongoing legal battle against the producer -- the former American Idol star is just "not a fan" of him.
"There's a lot of times in my career where you don't see my name on the song and that's because sometimes I don't write them," she explained. "A lot of times I do change the song in a way that probably you should ask for credit, but I don't because the song was already great -- I just made it more me. I think a lot of artists steal credit a lot from writers, which I think is super crappy 'cause that's their livelihood."
"If I deserve it, I usually ask," she continued. "And I did deserve it on that song just 'cause I changed it a bit," she said of "My Life Would Suck Without You," which went to No. 1.
"Basically, they were gonna sit on my record unless I did what they wanted. I was so frustrated because I literally said, 'Anyone in the world but this one person. I will work with anyone you want to put in my path.' I love people. I think that's apparent. I think I'm a nice person, that's apparent. It was just this one thing, and I asked not to work with Dr. Luke just because I had not a good experience with him," said Clarkson. "If an artist like me, I generally love everyone. You have to really be a special kind of ... for me not to like you."
"They brought up writing credit at the end," she went on. "They were like, 'Well, you changed the song.' And I was like, 'I don't want my name near his. I want to pretend this didn't happen in my life and I want to forget it.'"
