Kelly Clarkson is here to remind you that you can be broken and beautiful in her new song. On Thursday (April 26), the songstress released the music video for her new song “Broken & Beautiful.” The track is featured on the soundtrack for the upcoming animated film “UglyDolls” while the music video finds one of the dolls from the movie trying to break into Clarkson’s show.
The almost-four-minute clip begins with the Moxy (the pink UglyDoll voiced by Clarkson) trying to get into the backstage area of the concert venue, but is blocked by a burly, security guard. She finally figures out a way to get in without getting caught, but things don’t work out in her favor. Most of the video finds Moxy trying to make her Clarkson as the security guard is hot on her tail.
All the while, Clarkson is in her dressing room getting ready for her show with some assistance from her daughter, River Rose. In between the footage of Moxy’s journey to the stage and Clarkson’s pre-show rituals are shots taken directly from the upcoming animated film.
In the end, Moxy ends up on stage with Clarkson performing the song. A sweet ending for the doll who spent most of the music video running away from a security guard.
