Kelly Clarkson "Already Gone" and Beyoncé "Halo" issue

Hey everyone, Ryan here. So.....i'm in Europe on vacation with my wife yesterday when I get a flurry of emails with links to gossip sites and media outlets saying "Kelly clarkson throws producer Ryan Tedder under the bus re: Already Gone" etc etc etc... Alleging that I copied myself or "pulled a fast one" on Kelly Clarkson. This couldn't be farther from the truth and the whole thing is absurd....however, I need to actually read what the hell is going on, make a call or 2, and be fully informed of it, then I assure you I will have a proper, respectful response. I don't take allegations of this nature lightly- ESPECIALLY when it's in regards to artists I respect and admire. Nor do I let things like this go unaddressed. So, give me a minute, and I'll tell u whatsup and what really happened, or in this case, "didn't" happen.

Now, Tedder is firing back at Clarkson with the following statement:

"Already Gone" is one of the best song I've written or produced since "Bleeding Love" and stands tall on it's own merits apart from "Halo".

They are two entirely different songs conceptually, melodically, & lyrically and I would never try to dupe an artist such as Kelly Clarkson or Beyoncé into recording over the same musical track, the idea is both hurtful & absurd.

I think when people hear "Already Gone" they will hear what I hear-one of the greatest female vocalists on earth giving her most haunting and heart-breaking performance on a song she helped write.

I challenge people to listen and form their own opinions.

In my opinion Tedder thinks we are stupid. I feel like I can sing "Halo" to the instrumental of "Already Gone".
