While chasing an ideal body, many Hollywood stars have come across a miraculous drug, Ozempic, a drug that has gained popularity mainly because of its side effects. This powerful drug was originally developed to treat diabetes. However, many celebrities have been using it to get a picture-perfect physique.

Its main purpose is to control the insulin levels in people with diabetes, but the unintended side effects of this have made many of them interested in losing weight. Many celebs like Amy Schumer, Heather Gay, and Patti Stanger have openly talked about taking Ozempic. However, singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson is not one of them.

Amidst the Ozempic frenzy, Kelly Clarkson is in the middle of rumors about her own drastic weight loss. During a recent episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, Clarkson had Whoopi Goldberg as her guest, who herself went through a weight-loss journey. According to Deadline, Goldberg had used Mounjaro to lose weight.

In the interview, Goldberg said,

“It’s all the weight I’ve lost. I’ve lost almost two people. I am doing that wonderful shot that works for folks who need some help, and it’s been really good for me.”

However, when it came to Clarkson, she quickly addressed the rumor of her using Ozempic and said,

“Mine is a different one than people assume, but I ended up having to do that, too, because my bloodwork got so bad… Everybody thinks it’s Ozempic. It’s not.”

Clarkson has been under criticism for her weight and has also been alleged of using the popular drug earlier as well. However, after her recent clarification on the drug, American weathercaster and journalist Al Roker defended Clarkson. On the Today show, he said,

“People, as long as they’re working with their doctors and being healthy about it, people ought to just back off and let them live their lives.”

Roker was also vocal about how hard it is to battle obesity, especially after surgery. Nevertheless, although Clarkson has not revealed her drug, her weight-loss journey is commendable.

Even though Clarkson did not say the exact medication she has been taking, she did reveal the fact that it is the one that is used for the improvement of her worsening bloodwork and that it helps the breakdown of sugar in her body. Being diagnosed with pre-diabetes, Clarkson uses the drug to maintain her sugar level.

Clarkson reveals that her doctor played an important role in her journey. She said in the interview,

“My doctor chased me for, like, two years, and I was like, ‘No, I’m afraid of it. I already have thyroid problems..’”

She revealed that, at one point in time, she weighed almost 203 pounds and couldn’t recognize herself when she looked in the mirror. She felt that she would die of a heart attack.

In an earlier interview with People Magazine, Clarkson revealed the changes she made in her diet and lifestyle that helped her lose weight and get healthier overall. She said,

“I eat a healthy mix. I dropped weight because I’ve been listening to my doctor — a couple years I didn’t. And 90 percent of the time I’m really good at it because a protein diet is good for me anyway. I’m a Texas girl, so I like meat — sorry, vegetarians in the world!…walking in the city is quite the workout.” 

Although she had been struggling with her weight for quite a while, Clarkson mentioned that she never felt unhappy about it, unlike what her critics thought her to be.
