This Kelly Clarkson Song Is Going Viral Because People Are Mishearing a Lyric
Her new song, "mine," contains a lyric that says one thing — but a very popular singer thought it was something else.
Let's face it: Misheard lyrics are some of the most delightful mistakes in life. Everyone can think back to a time when they completely flubbed the lyrics of a beloved song. It can even happen while listening to The Voice Coach Kelly Clarkson's portfolio of iconic tracks. The latest song that's fallen victim to this relatable mishap is her new single "mine," which Australian singer Troye Sivan mistakenly believed was speaking to him directly.
Clarkson hilariously responded to the slight on The Kelly Clarkson Show. For context: "mine" has taken the world by storm, with Clarkson delivering yet another heartbreaking anthem. The misheard line in question stems from a live performance where Clarkson sings the track's emotional bridge: "Your choice of art / Who the hell do you think you are?"
Enter Clarkson superfan and fellow entertainer Sivan, who took to TikTok to share his funny misunderstanding. While Clarkson actually powerfully belted, "Your choice of art," Sivan instead he heard his name, "Troye Sivan," followed by, "Who the hell do you think you are?"
"What did I do to upset Kelly Clarkson?" Sivan jokingly pleads in a now-viral TikTok about the moment.
Clarkson, naturally, had a big laugh after catching wind of the misheard lyric situation.
"Apparently Australian singer Troye Sivan thought I was calling him out in my song, 'mine.' I died when I saw this," Clarkson shared. "I laughed so hard. Somebody sent it to me, and I had just woken up. I laughed so hard alone in my house. Belly laughed."
Clarkson invited Sivan to The Kelly Clarkson Show virtually to chat about the cheeky ordeal. Sivan says it was a friend of his who reached out to ask what his beef was with the Season 23 Voice Coach. As a Clarkson stan, Sivan was slightly (but playfully) concerned.
"I watched it, and I immediately had the same reaction, like, belly-laughing because it's so scary," Sivan laughed. "You're so sincere when you sing it, as well, that I was like, 'Oh my God, what did I do?'"
Clarkson released two tracks from her upcoming album Chemistry, "me" and "mine," to give fans a taste of what's to come. The album is set for release on June 23. In an Instagram post about the album, Clarkson explained the origins of the album's title.
"Having chemistry with someone is an incredible, and overwhelming, feeling. It’s like you have no choice in the matter," Clarkson revealed. "You are just drawn to each other. This can be good and bad. This album takes you down every path that chemistry could lead you down. We decided to release [the first singles] 'mine' and 'me' at the same time because I didn’t want to release just one song to represent an entire album, or relationship. There are many stages of grief and loss on this album. Each song is a different stage and emotional state."
