Kelly Clarkson said she understands people in her industry get Botox, but she never plans to.

During Mayim Bialik's podcast on Tuesday, singer and talk show host said she is forgoing all kinds of cosmetic procedures for two reasons.

First. she's afraid of the toxic chemicals in Botox. Second, she wants her fans to see her age naturally. "I'm gonna look like a total Shar-Pei, like a dog. I'm gonna have every wrinkle in the world on my face," Clarkson said, according to Today.
