Kelly Clarkson is used to criticism of her music, having competed in American Idol and being a chart-topper.

But her harshest critic surprised her, which she revealed in a hilarious interview with the Today Show. In fact, it was her daughter who told her how she was “bored” watching mom perform.

When rehearsing, Clarkson explained that her daughter, River Rose, was listening in.

“I wasn’t singing full-out because it’s, like, three days in a row and then we have four days in a row for the show, so I was holding back,” Clarkson said.

“She was like, ‘Mommy, you know when you’re on stage and you were singing?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, baby.’ I was thinking like a compliment was about to come. She was like, ‘Yeah, I was really bored,'” Clarkson said.

“I was like, ‘Oh. Damn.’ … ‘Well, that was sweet, honey. Maybe don’t tell people that when they get off stage,'” she added.

“They do not care anymore. They’re not impressed,” Clarkson added about her children’s approach to her fame.
