This Is Why Kelly Clarkson Has an Eye Patch on "The Voice"

The singer posted about the accessory on Instagram, revealing the reason behind the new look.

Kelly Clarkson has always been a trendsetter when it comes to her fashion sense, from her casual style during her early days on American Idol to her more recent glamorous looks on the red carpet. However, it's her latest accessory that really has fans talking. On Nov. 9, The Voice judge posted a photo of herself to Instagram in which she's sporting an eye patch. Read on to find out why, and for more of today's Hollywood news, find out the story behind why an ABC Sitcom Star Quit and Called Her Show a "Toxic Environment."

"Something got in my eye and it got a little infected, so I have to wear an eye patch," Clarkson explained on Instagram.

But she seemed to be taking the situation in stride. In October, Clarkson joked about her eye patch with Common on her talk show. "I'm sorry I look like a pirate. I hurt my eye and I have to wear it, so it's ridiculous," she said. "I think I'm just going to make it my thing."

And in her recent Instagram stories, Clarkson has done just that. "I feel like I could be a really great super-villain," she joked.

That said, Clarkson admitted adjusting to her look wasn't entirely easy. "I have no depth perception," she said on Instagram.
