Kelly Clarkson was so depressed after a show on her last U.S. tour she cancelled a planned meet and greet with fans and instead locked herself in a bathroom and wrote about her feelings.
The singer admits she was struggling to cope with a break-up and couldn't even fake a smile anymore.
So, backstage at a concert in Irvine, California, she penned the tune Irvine, which appears on her upcoming album My December.
She explains, "It was literally the lowest point I've had in my life... I was just so burned-out.
"I was really struggling at getting somebody out of my life and finding people that really cared.
"The whole song is a prayer. I wrote it in a bathroom of the venue after the show... It was just a really, really bad night."
