Kelly Clarkson has taken a long hard look in The Mirror, and she doesn't like what she sees.

The singer has accused the paper's 'Celebs On Sunday' magazine of misquoting her to make her sound "obnoxious and arrogant".

Linking to her WhoSay account from Twitter, she wrote: "Just to clear up the absolutely wrong so-called quotes from me, I have never had anorexia nor did I ever say "no-one should be as famous as me"."

The magazine had used the "No one should be as famous as me" line as their cover headline, but Clarkson denied ever saying it. She clarified: "I said in the interview, when asked about fame, that I have no desire to be as famous as Britney or Madonna. I said that kind of fame was too much for any person and that I have experienced a portion of what they deal with and that I didn't handle that well and I'm happy where I'm at in my career."

Kelly Clarkson was the winner of the first season of American Idol, the TV singing contest broadcast in the USA.
