“It’s a solemn anthem written for my late turtle, Stanley”
After the untimely death of Kelly Clarkson’s beautiful turtle Stanley, Clarkson fell into a deep depression, turning to a life of peyote and playing chess with seniors at the park.
It wasn’t until she received a call from an old friend, and American Idol runner-up, Justin Guarini, that shook her to her core, pleading with her to continue making beautiful music.
So Kelly wrote, and recounted the afternoons she spent at home with Stanley, feeding Cheez-its into his snapping mouth, grooming his shell with an electric toothbrush, and watching episodes of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition together.
A song was made.
A gorgeous heartfelt piece about a girl and her turtle.
