Following a video of American singer Kelly Clarkson’s interview with Rose McIver which was uploaded to Instagram, some fans of the former The Voice coach and talk-show host were angry with her.
New Zealand actress Rose McIver and Kelly Clarkson were observed having a conversation in an interview shared on Clarkson’s Instagram, revealing McIver’s desire to be a rapper. When asked who inspired her most the 33-year-old McIver stated that she is influenced by the music of Tupac Shakur aka 2Pac.
With more than 75 million albums sold globally, 2Pac is broadly considered as one of the most influential and enduring best-selling rappers. Repeatedly his music focused on the social issues of the inner city. Often he is regarded as an image who struggles against injustice.
On 7th September 1996 in Las Vegas, ‘Makaveli’ was fatally shot in drive-by homicide. He died on 13th September which is six days after the incident. The rap icon breathed his last at the age of 25.
“Growing up by the beach, Bohemian, kind of New Zealand lifestyle, I discovered Tupac, and I finally felt really seen,” McIver told Clarkson, who then began laughing. Clarkson asked, “You related? You related to the core messages there?” After McIver nodded, the talk show host continued, “That’s amazing. You should be a comedian.”

On the Instagram post of Clarkson, commenters recently criticize the former The Voice coach for her reaction to the story of McIver.
One person wrote: “Tupac was legendary! If you didn’t feel something while listening. You have no soul.”
“Kelly is too loud, overbearing, and insulting. She needs to learn how to LISTEN,” wrote another person.
