FILE - In this Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013 file photo, Kelly Clarkson performs on stage at the 55th annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. The British government has stepped in to stop singer Kelly Clarkson from taking a ring once owned by author Jane Austen out of the country. The "American Idol" winner bought the gold and turquoise ring at auction last year for just over 150,000 pounds ($228,000). But on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013, Culture Minister Ed Vaizey put an export bar on the item until Sept. 30 in the hope that a British buyer will come forward. (Photo by John Shearer/Invision/AP, File)
