New Video: Kelly Clarkson, ‘Dark Side’

Kelly Clarkson makes us all kinds of emotional in her new video, ‘Dark Side.’

We may have congratulated the newest “American Idol” winner, Phillip Phillips, last night, but it’s a treat to get a fresh video from OG “Idol” star Kelly Clarkson. It’s been 10 years, and even after all the girl’s hits, we can’t help but swoon at Kelly’s consistently heartfelt videos (we STILL get weepy at “Because Of You“) — especially after watching her latest emotional visual tale, “Dark Side.” While Kelly’s latest may be about some of the bad moments in life, girl is looking real good singing about them.

Watch Kelly Clarkson’s “Dark Side” video after the jump.

“Dark Side” captures an empathetic Kelly softly gazing into the camera while sharing the screen as a montage captures different personal struggles: weight problems, job losses and bullying. Don’t worry, though — Kel’s powerhouse vocals make us feel like we’re going to be OK after all. The video even wraps up with Kelly embracing all the of the characters herself. (If your eyes don’t start tearing up at this moment, check your pulse.)

We’d be lying if we didn’t admit that the video left us feeling a bit melancholy, but we’re pretty sure that’s its job. That and to remind us that a) that Kelly is looking more flawless than ever, and b) be nice to every single person in the world. Where’s Kelly’s Nobel Peace Prize?
