We're not big users of celeb-gossip site TMZ.com -- at least, far as you know. That said, this item about Kelly Clarkson tickled us: "Kelly Clarkson was spotted leaving Nobu sushi restaurant in New York last night, looking less like an American Idol and more like a Moscow middle school student sent in search of herring. Dasvidanya, baby!" The picture of Clarkson's after the jump. And no, we don't feel all that good about it. Far as you know. --Robert Wilonsky
