Heartbeat Song

1) Kelly Clarkson is singing an upbeat song about falling in love. Think of your favorite love song. Is it about finding love or losing it? celebrating love

2) This song was co-written by Kara DioGuardi, who was a judge on American Idol. Kelly was, of course, the first American Idol. Do you watch Idol, The Voice, or America's Got Talent? I watched the first ten seasons of Idol faithfully, I occasionally watch now. Sometimes I watch The Voice and AGT.

3) In this video, Kelly is blonde. Clairol based a famous ad campaign around the assertion that "blondes have more fun." Tell us another commercial catchphrase (it can be for any product at all). "Just do it"

4) As a young girl, Kelly wanted to be a marine biologist. She jokes that she changed her mind after seeing Jaws. Tell us about a movie that really scared you. The Shining

5) Kelly is very involved with NASCAR, performing at pre-race concerts and appearing at their Champions' Breakfast. Are you a race fan? I am not a race fan

6) Kelly is married to Brandon Blackstock, stepson of country superstar Reba McEntire. Are you a country music fan? I do not mind some country now and then

7) The Blackstocks have a baby girl, River Rose. In May, the family visited an Australian wildlife preserve and introduced her to koalas and kangaroos. Have you visited the zoo this year? no, I probably won't either

8) Upon learning that she was getting criticized on Twitter for being "big," Kelly responded, "Say what you will. It's a free world. It doesn't bother me." How about you? Do you worry what other people think of you? not too much

9) She bid over $200,000 and won a ring that had once belonged to Jane Austen. (She doesn't have the ring, though; the British government banned its sale because it's a historic artifact and Kelly's money was returned.) She also has a first edition of one of Austen's novels. Who is your all-time favorite writer? hmmm... all-time favorite? I guess I'll go with Stephen King

The Shining was a very scary movie. I saw it in the theater when it came out even though my mother forbade it. I wished I'd listened to her after it was over and done!

"The Shining" was horribly scary. I'd honestly forgotten about it. It's more scary than "Pitch Black" but not by much! Even after his comedy roles, I couldn't get over the one Jack Nicholson played in that movie.

The Shining was really creepy.

IT scared the living crap out of me. Stephen King is a genius when it comes to pressing our buttons.
