Kelly Clarkson Fangirls Over Gal Gadot: ‘Bitch Got It All!’

Singer, songwriter, and “The Voice” coach Kelly Clarkson was honored at Variety‘s Power of Women L.A. luncheon on Friday for her work with the education organization XQ Institute. But she used her platform to celebrate some of the others in the room who inspire her and her daughter.

Seeing Gal Gadot in the crowd, Clarkson stopped her speech before she really got it started to talk about how nice it is to have a “bold female figure” like “Wonder Woman” as a role model for young girls like her own 3-year-old daughter.

She fawned over Gadot, saying “Bitch got it all, she got it all,” before praising the film itself.

“I love this movie, I don’t know what James Cameron is talking about,” she recalled telling director Patty Jenkins, referring to the “Titanic” director’s criticism of the superhero pic.

She then explained the significance of the movie to mothers everywhere.

“For women that are moms, the story of Belle and the beast, it’s a little scary. She was in a dungeon, trapped, and then they fell in love,” Clarkson said of the classic early influence many girls have in “Beauty and the Beast.” “Or Aurora, she just slept it out; she didn’t do a damn thing. And those are her favorite ones. And I’m like ‘ughhh.'”

But the strength of “Wonder Woman” is a whole new level, as is watching her daughter act out the fight scenes from it. “You’re a little proud cause you’re like, ‘Oh, you’re cute in the Belle dress,’ but you’re more proud when she’s like [wields imaginary Wonder Woman sword].”
