Kelly Clarkson was honored to have the opportunity to work with One Direction, wherein she helped write the song "Tell Me A Lie" for the British boyband at the request of Simon Cowell.
'When Simon Cowell put me forward to write for One Direction I said: 'Let me hear them first.' Simon has been really supportive since I won American Idol. Tell Me a Lie is the cut I've got on 1D's album [Up All Night], as I like the story of them, how they came together as a group,' she said to Pressparty.com
. 'While I wrote the song for me, it didn't fit in the current album, as I never want an album to sound like one thought.'
Kelly also reveals that she is a huge fan of British musicians.
'One Direction have worked so well in America as well as the UK because people love a story, plus they have this innocence about them that attracts people," she explained. 'There's a lot of British talent doing well in America right now. I'm a huge fan of Ellie Goulding and Jessie J.'
