British TV personality Katie Hopkins recently posted some nasty tweets about singer Kelly Clarkson's weight, including this one: "Did she eat all of her backing singers?"

Clarkson, 32, told Heat magazine that she doesn't care what Hopkins, 40, thinks about her and is totally comfortable with her body nearly nine months after giving birth to her first child, River Rose.

"I'm awesome. It doesn't bother me," she said. "It's a free world. Say what you will. I've just never cared what people think. It's more if I'm happy and I'm confident and feeling good, that's always been my thing. And more so now, since having a family -- I don't seek out any other acceptance."

Clarkson is riding high these days with her new album "Piece by Piece" and a tour being readied for this summer, including stops at Radio City Music Hall July 16-17.
