The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "Mr. Know It All" is a clean track from American Idol darling Kelly Clarkson. There's no explicit content or language; instead, the song focuses on its inspiring message about ending a relationship with someone who's not treating you respectfully. The song is a good choice for young kids who are just starting to build their self-confidence and navigate romantic relationships.
What's the story?
"MR. KNOW IT ALL" is the first single from Stronger, the fifth full-length album by Kelly Clarkson -- winner of American Idol's kick-off season. Known for her largely inoffensive lyrics, Clarkson keeps it clean here and adheres to a positive message about never settling for second best in a relationship: "Well ya like to bring me down don't ya, but I ain't laying down, baby, I ain't going down / Can't nobody tell me how it's gonna be ... Baby you should know that I lead not follow."
Is it any good?
