Even though Kelly Clarkson has achieved great success since winning American Idol years ago, her weight is often at the center of attention more than her talent.

"I love how people think that's new - like, 'Welcome to the past 13 years,'" the singer said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "Yeah, I was the biggest girl on [American Idol], too. And I wasn't big, but people would call me big because I was the biggest one on Idol, and I've kind of always gotten that."

While the "Heartbeat Song" songstress said she's not concerned with comments about her own weight, she does take offense when her fans get upset about theirs. "I think what hurts my feelings for people is that I'll have a meet-and-greet after the show and a girl who's, like, bigger than me will be in the meet-and-greet and be like, 'Wow, if they think you're big, I must be so fat to them.'"

In spite of what her weight critics have said, Kelly is still keeping her head up. "It's like, you're just who you are," she continued. "We are who we are. Whatever size, and it doesn't mean that we're gonna be that forever," she said. "That's the thing. Sometimes we're more fit. Like especially me, I'm such a creative person I yo-yo. So sometimes I'm more fit and I get into kickboxing hardcore. And then sometimes I don't, and I'm like...I'd rather have wine."
