Kelly Clarkson is adding some home goods to her growing endorsement roster. Wayfair has tapped the singer and daytime TV star as its “first official brand ambassador in the U.S.,” the online retailer announced today. The deal includes TV ads, digital marketing and brand integrations on NBCUniversal’s “The Kelly Clarkson Show.” Also, in April Wayfair will release an “exclusive, two-part collection of furniture, décor and more, inspired by her lifestyle and southern roots,” according to a press release. The TV campaign begins Monday and is called “Home: You Got This.” Ads, which were handled in-house, show Clarkson popping up inside people’s homes to suggest kitchen and living room furniture via Wayfair’s app.
