Jay Cutler is a BIG Kelly Clarkson Fan

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is apparently a BIG Kelly Clarkson fan.  Jay and Bears backup QB Caleb Hanie were reportedly at a private Kelly Clarkson concert hosted by the 101.9 The Mix.  Here’s what the Trib’s Luis Arroyave had to say about the Poppy (as opposed to Punky) QB’s appearance in his About Last Night column:

Kelly Clarkson performed a five-song acoustic set at Hub 51 (51 W. Hubbard St.) on Monday in front of 101.9 FM contest winners and invited guests, including Jay Cutler. The Bears quarterback had dinner and watched as Clarkson sang locker room favorites “I Do Not Hook Up” and “My Life Would Suck Without You.”

Bears backup QB Caleb Hanie joined Cutler at the show, which means Cutler likely used the phrase “If I’m going down, you’re going down with me” a few times Monday.

Either JC is a big fan or he’s a fan of BIG Kelly:

I think she could open a better hole than current left guard Frank Omiyale, don’t you?  That came out wrong, but I kinda like it, so I’ll leave it.

I heard that during the Josh McDaniels/Matt Cassel/trade drama while still in Denver, Jay turned to the American Idol winner’s tunes to connect with his deepest, most raw emotions.  Here in no particular order are Jay’s favorites:

  1. Miss Independent
  2. Breakaway
  3. Since U Been Gone
  4. Because of You
  5. Walk Away
  6. Never Again

Notice a common theme?  His new favorites, since joining the Bears:

1. My Life Would Suck Without You – for his new BFF Greg Olsen

2. I Do Not Hook Up – for his receivers with whom he can’t seem to hook up


Through the month of October, my usual BEAR DOWN signoff will be in pink to raise awareness for National Breast Cancer Awareness month.

    I love Kelly Clarkson. She is an amazing singer and performer. I think it is cool that Jay Cutler enjoys her music. She is awesome. Maybe you should try listening to her as well before you make nasty comments. The weight comments are ignorant, stupid, and shows your immaturity. I saw Kelly in concert on October 10th, and she looked beautiful.

    Sassy – you live up to your name. Don’t get me wrong – I have no problem with Kelly. She’s an exceptional talent. She’s just not the type of artist that you’d expect a professional football player like JC to be a fan of. With regard to the weight comments – guilty as charged on all counts. It’s an insult to put Frank Omiyale anywhere close to the same class as Kelly, but I hear Frankie O can carry quite a tune in his own right.

    Sassy sounds like a big girl too. Big girls like Sassy and Kelly need to stick together…kind of like peanut butter and jelly, macaroni and cheese, or eggs and bacon. Sorry, I shouldn’t mention food; I know it’s making Sassy drool.

    If I want to learn about “inner beauty” and “how weight is just a number”, then I will watch a movie on Litetime. Hello, this is a Chicago Bears Blog not a Fatty Girl Power Support Group. Anyways, Kelly Clarkson doesn’t need other (fat) people coming to her defense. Celebrities want attention so they should handle all the criticism that comes with being in the spotlight (even when that spotlight makes their ass look like a hippo). If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen…. and if you’re Kelly Clarkson you should get out of KFC drive-thru.

    Miss M,
    I am not heavy and neither is Kelly. And people can have class at any weight…shame you don’t have any. You are right about one thing, Kelly doesn’t need me defending her because she could care less what an ignorant jackass thinks of her. Look in your mirror, Loser!
    p.s. I can take anything stupid you have to say. Shame your mother didn’t raise you right.

    Kelly needs to date Ben Roethlisberger. If Ben gets out of line she can use her physique and throw on a jersey so he can mistaken her for a blitzing nose tackle.
