“Already Gone is Halo” says Kelly Clarkson
I just heard about it this morning (6:30 AM) that first and former American Idol Kelly Clarkson reportedly was aggravated at the fact that her latest single “Already Gone” sounded too similar to Beyonce’s “Halo”.
She blames Ryan Tedder, the song’s co-composer, since he was the one responsible for giving the song to both Clarkson and Beyonce.
“No one’s gonna be sittin’ at home, thinkin’ ‘Man, Ryan Tedder gave Beyoncé and Kelly the same track to write to’. No, they’re just gonna be sayin’ I ripped someone off. I called Ryan and said, ‘I don’t understand. Why would you do that?’ “

Author’s reaction: I still think Already Gone is a beautiful song. Too bad Ryan Tedder’s an asshole.
