After following Kelly Clarkson's career from winning American Idol to global tours to The Voice to her successful chat series The Kelly Clarkson Show, fans might be quick to think that the Grammy-winning entertainer is a fearless, confidence-oozing machine. But that's not exactly the case, at least when it comes to certain facets of her life such as breast enlargement surgery.

Not one to shy away from talking about details from her personal life if the situation calls for it, Kelly Clarkson appeared on Big Bang Theory vet Mayim Bialik's podcast Bialik Breakdown, where conversations tend to focus on mental and physical health, and how those elements can be affected by the entertainment industry. In the middle of the episode, the dialogue turned to the pressures that female actors (and some male actors) face to stay looking youthful, including Botox treatments, and Clarkson took charge in explaining why she would never go that route, as well as why she'll never get the big boobs she's always wanted. Joking that she's going to look like a "total Shar Pei" when she's older, Clarkson explained:

I am afraid of stuff called botulism toxin. It’s literally called botulism toxin and I’m like, ‘No.' Any needle that goes in my body is either taking blood to check my thyroid, ’cause it’s off... or healthy things for you. Not, like, a bunch of pharmaceuticals or a bunch of things that mess you up. I’m afraid of stuff like that. So that’s not me being, like, ‘I’m above it.’ I’m terrified! If I weren’t terrified, I would be sitting right here with some double-Ds. I’m gonna be real with you. 'Cause I never had big boobs, and I always wanted big boobs, but I’m terrified! I would never get a boob job. I'm like, 'Why would I cut on myself?'

So while Kelly Clarkson clearly doesn't seem to have any personal or moral distaste for plastic surgery and other forms of elective medical procedures, her abject fear over going under the knife is pretty much a guarantee that she's not going to suddenly show up for The Voice Season 21 with massive boobs that accidentally hit the chair-turning button each time she exhales. I'm sure she wouldn't want to hear Blake Shelton's jokes about them, either.

But while Mayim Bialik noted that she wanted to get out of the entertainment industry before she reached a wrinkled point of no return, Kelly Clarkson shared that she felt the exact opposite way. In her mind, it's better to remain squarely in the public eye during that aging period so that it can help normalize the idea of aging naturally, both for celebrities and for women in general. So even though Clarkson may be afraid of getting any medical procedures that involve scalpels and needles, she's definitely not afraid to be her Texas-born self in any situation. For my money, that outlook is way more inspirational than a pair of big boobs ever could be, and it puts way less strain on women's backs.

Fans can listen to Kelly Clarkson and Mayim Bialik talk about lots of other topics as well, and be sure to tune into The Kelly Clarkson Show airing weekdays in syndication. While waiting for The Voice coach to eventually take over Ellen DeGeneres' time slot when the comedian and longtime host departs, be sure to keep track of all the awesome shows hitting the 2021 Summer TV schedule soon.
