From Kelly Clarkson To Justin Guarini

In case you haven’t already heard, American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson has landed herself a movie role as well and she’ll be starring opposite the runner-up, Justin Guarini.

She, speaking to the press the other day, said “It’s called From Justin to Kelly. It’s like a text messaging thing. That’s why the title is so cute. It’s just Justin and I doing it with other actors we pick. It’s your basic romantic comedy.”

And meanwhile, to just set the record straight, they are not dating.

“Oh my dear God. I swear we’re just friends. We haven’t even been together to even do anything like that. That’s what I find funny. I’ve never had a boyfriend ever. I’m really focused. Justin is the same way. That’s why it’s funny that they linked us. We’re the two of the group that would totally not do that. My career is too haywire and my schedule too hectic for anything like that right now.”

American Idol Champ, Kelly Clarkson Makes History

American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson saw her new double-A-side record ‘A Moment Like This’/’Before Your Love’ rose from the No 52 spot to No 1 after going on sale in stores last week, marking the biggest leap to No 1 in the history of the Hot 100, her label, RCA Records, said on Wednesday. “We’re in uncharted territory” said Geoff Mayfield of Billboard magazine, which publishes the charts. “It’s unusual to have a retail single to begin with, and it’s even more unusual to have one sell decent numbers.”

The album sold 236,000 copies its first week in stores, the first time since 1999 that a single has sold more than 200,000 copies.
