Major cuteness alert! Kelly Clarkson dropped the music video for hit new single “Broken & Beautiful” today, and it’s all about the mother-daughter love between Clarkson and her 4-year-old daughter River Rose.
The track is featured in UglyDolls, the 2019 animated film also featuring original songs by stars like Janelle Monaé, Nick Jonas, Bebe Rexha and Blake Shelton. The full soundtrack comes out April 26, and the movie’s release date is May 2. For now, we can enjoy Clarkson’s animated character Moxy whizzing through the world of her latest music video. Set backstage, the video starts with the singer getting ready with daughter River Rose: goofy poses in the mirror, putting on make-up and an all-out dance party at the end.
A few months back, Clarkson made waves when she admitted she “crushed [River’s] dreams” by explaining voice acting. When trying to explain her own role in UglyDolls, she compared it to one of River’s favorite movies Frozen. “It’s my voice,” the singer told her daughter, referring to the animated Moxy. “Like how Elsa and Anna, there’s a person that plays Elsa and Anna?” As it turns out, this was news to River Rose — and her mother quickly tried to undo the damage. “Isn’t it exciting that you can meet the real girl that plays Elsa?” she asked her daughter next.
Judging from this music video, River Rose has since gotten on board with Clarkson’s latest project. And given what a delight she is on camera, we’re hoping this isn’t the last peek at mother-daughter life we get from the duo. Who knows — in 10 years, they could be releasing their first duet!
