Kelly Clarkson’s nanny may lose her job! Not really, but she will definitely annoy her boss if she keeps talking about 2003’s From Justin to Kelly. The “Heartbeat Song” singer recently joked to Rolling Stone magazine that 11-month-old River Rose’s caretaker is a really big fan of the disastrous flick.

“I have a little joke with our nanny, because she told me she loves that movie. She was like, ‘My roommate and I used to watch it all the time! I’m totally going to show your daughter From Justin to Kelly,'” Clarkson, 33, recalled to the mag. “I’m like, ‘I will fire you.'”

But that’s not all! Clarkson would even burn every copy of From Justin to Kelly if she got the chance. “…I think I would have to own it first,” she said, laughing. “But that is something I will look into.”

In one of her only forays into acting, Clarkson starred in the film with her American Idol season 1 runner-up and former flame, Justin Guarini. “I cried for a solid hour on the phone with the creator of American Idol,” she told Us Weekly exclusively back in February. “[I] pleaded to be let out of the contract that said I had to film From Justin to Kelly.”

Needless to say, fans won’t find Clarkson watching her big screen debut with husband Brandon Blackstock anytime soon. Instead, the couple are fans of Matthew McConaughey’s 2014 scifi drama Interstellar.

“Oh, my gosh, it’s so trippy! I want to be an astronaut at this point,” she told RS. “We also play board games. My sister, my mom, me and [mother-in-law Reba McEntire] are the gamers in the family. Everyone else we just drag into it.”

She added: “Reba and I are both competitive – she’ll tell you she’s not, but she’s a liar. I can win Sequence, but if we play backgammon or Mexican Train dominoes, she kills me. She’s like a backgammon magician.”
