Pop star Kelly Clarkson refused a $10 million offer from her record label boss Clive Davis to remove five songs from her
Clarkson recently admitted executives at RCA and Sony BMG had put pressure on her to record songs previously offered to other artists, but she was determined to contribute more songwriting to My December than her previous discs.
The Because Of You singer tells the American edition of Elle magazine that Davis offered her money to remove five tracks from the album in favour of other songs, which he believed had more selling ability.
