All Kelly Clarkson ever wanted was not to be taken out of context.

The ex-"American Idol" champ is bashing the U.K. Mirror's Sunday Celebs edition, claiming the paper misquoted her and portrayed her as "obnoxious" and "arrogant" in a cover story emblazoned with the headline "No one on the planet should be as famous as me."

Clarkson also accused the editors of twisting her words to make it sound as if she admitted to having anorexia, which she vehemently denied.

"Just to clear up the absolutely wrong so called quotes from me, I have never had anorexia nor did I ever say 'no one should be as famous as me,' read an angry tweet from the "Catch My Breath" singer on Monday.

Clarkson then laid out what she really said in the sit-down. "I said in the interview, when asked about fame, that I have no desire to be as famous as Britney or Madonna," the Texas native explained. "I said that kind of fame was too much for any person and that I have experienced a portion of what they deal with and that I didn't handle that well and I'm happy where I'm at in my career."

Clarkson concluded her scathing post by calling out all those at the paper who blatantly misrepresented her. "Side note, I love when people take what you say and twist it to make you sound obnoxious and arrogant ....nice job Mirror," she wrote.

Clarkson also got a show of solidarity from her friend and fellow "Idol" alum Jordin Sparks, who tweeted her, "tell 'em girl!"

To which the hitmaker replied back: "@JordinSparks I just can't stand when people do stuff like that. It drives me bananas. By the way, I just saw Sparkle. Great job!! Loved it!"

Those Idol folks sure know how to stick together.
