"It's like your give-a-crap factor drops," she says.

Woke mom extraordinaire Kelly Clarkson is a total body-positive role model. On top of shutting down trolls, the singer has been open about how she learned to accept and love her body. Most recently, she shared the two things in her life that helped her feel better than ever: getting married and having children.

"I know it sounds funny but I've never felt sexier, I've never felt more confident, I've never felt more empowered," Kelly said on NBC's Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist. "I don't think you have to get married or have children to have those things, but that's what happened to me. It's like your give-a-crap factor drops," she joked.

Kelly has had an incredibly successful career since becoming the OG American Idol in 2002—and has three Grammys and a slew of chart-toppers to show for it. But over the years, she's gotten just as much attention for her body as her accomplishments. (Unfortunately, she's not alone: Here are 20 more celebrities who receive criticism for their curves.)

Hopefully, her candidness will encourage other women to ~breakaway~ from the haters and channel those DGAF Ms. Independent vibes.
