Kelly Clarkson has hit out at a troll who suggested she put her work before her marriage.

The 'Breakaway' hitmaker recently filled in for Simon Cowell on 'America's Got Talent' after the music mogul broke his back, and a Twitter user claimed her hectic schedule, which also includes being a mentor on 'The Voice' and hosting her self-titled talk show, led to the demise of her marriage to Brandon Blackstock in June.

The fan wrote it's no wonder Kelly's marriage didn't work and added they are surprised she has time for her kids. They also said the star is no longer the good old country girl we fell in love with and insisted it's now all about Kelly being on TV.

The singer quickly hit back at the troll for "shaming" her over her great work ethic and said they were shaming a woman who is a great mum and steps up and fills in when a friend asks her for a favour as that's actually what good old county girls do. She then told the fan to aim higher.
