Clarkson defended her choice to spank her daughter, saying that she was disciplined in the same way as a child. "I'm excited. We already started filming, it's been so fun".

In a new interview, the singer-songwriter revealed the one reason why she made a decision to join The Voice: she is a fan of the show's format. So we suspect she'll get a heaping helping of both mom shame and atta-girls for her latest truth parenting bomb. "That's why this show really does complement my desires for this industry".

The Grammy victor also disclosed that American Idol producers asked her to join the revival as a judge. "I think there's a fine line obviously but I believe in spanking, so you might catch me spanking my child at the zoo".

Clarkson said this show sets itself apart from all the other singing competition shows simply because of those blind auditions. "And I don't mean like hitting her hard, I just mean a spanking", Clarkson said.

That's a tricky thing, when you're out in public, because then people are like-they think that's wrong or something, but I find nothing wrong with a spanking.
"The ones that aren't insecure or threatened". One poster said that spanking is "proven to be detrimental to kids", while others said that it was simply "wrong" and perpetuates "physical fear tactics".

The Voice returns Monday, February 26 on NBC.

Meanwhile, Clarkson will mark her debut stint as a coach on "The Voice" when season 14 begins its run in February.
