Kelly Clarkson credits her slimmer figure to her 'glam squad'
Amid much media attention about Kelly Clarkson’s surprising weight loss, the '"American Idol" star made a hilarious comment on the reason behind it.
During a press conference about the season finale of "The Voice", Clarkson answered candidly to a fitness-related question raised by an ET journalist.
Clarkson didn’t think twice about explaining that the credit for her slimmer and fitter look went to her team, who worked tirelessly to give her a perfect appearance.
She termed her team as her "glam squad." Clarkson then went on to hilariously compare her glam squad with the fictitious character, Harry Potter.
“I have to shout out my whole glam squad. I literally hired Harry Potter and SPANX, it’s all like a sausage.”
The 36-year-old star’s one of the recent performances came during Billboard Music Awards when she hosted the evening amid an audience full of Hollywood stars and celebrities.

With a glossy black belt and an abstract neckline with skin-fitting full sleeves, her outfit completed her glamorous look and gave her a unique presence.
Although she has lost weight in recent times, Clarkson has never been shy about accepting her body image in the past.
She has always been proud of her figure irrespective of her weight and size and has even celebrated it in the past, calling herself a "pot full of grits," in one of her songs titled "Whole Lotta Women."
Clarkson added that that people tend to give too much importance to physical appearance, which she believes is plain wrong. Many people look up to her for confidence, she further admitted.
She explained how people often credit her for giving them the confidence to be in their own skin because of her positive body image.
