Kelly Clarkson's Secret? Stuffed Mushrooms Before Inauguration Performance (Video)
Kelly Clarkson ate stuffed mushrooms before her sensational "LIVE" performance of "My Country, 'Tis of Thee' at the presidential inauguration earlier this week.
Is that her secret?
"…Before Kelly rocked the National Mall in front of more than 800,000 people ... she and a few friends carbo-loaded at Buca di Beppo in D.C." and "Kelly and co. feasted on lasagna, bruschetta, stuffed mushrooms, half-pound meatballs, spaghetti, chicken parmigiana -- and the always delicious colossal brownie ...all for a cool $230."
Clarkson was kind to the staff and a good time was had by all.
She then crushed it with her performance!
