Clarkson drops tobacco sponsor

American pop “idol” Kelly Clarkson has done the right thing and dropped her tobacco sponsorship for her Jakarta concert on April 29. Billboards and television ads featuring her beneath a cigarette brand logo have been cancelled.

It’s a bit late, as thousands of her young fans have already had their brains polluted with her promotional campaign. Her defence that she was unaware that a tobacco company was backing her Indonesian gig just makes her look lazy and irresponsible. But it’s better late than never, and for that I offer her these flowers.
