I really love Carrie Underwood and I always thought ‘that would be the day that I would write something about bad about her,’ but some of her more recent public comments really have me wondering if the bright lights have really gotten to her in a not-so-good kind of way. The first interview that got me thinking I read in the Daily Blabber, where she talks about her new feud with Jessica Simpson. Remember when Carrie started talking some time ago about how her ex, Tony Romo, kept calling her? Well apparently, Jess didn’t like Carrie talking that way about her man and got upset. Really?!?! I am not a Jessica Simpson fan by any stretch but really, you have to understand why this would upset her. Apparently Underwood didn’t think that far in advance before she let that story slip from her lips. From the Daily Blabber,
“Carrie says that she’s sorry for making Jessica Simpson mad by telling the world that Jess’ boyfriend/Carrie’s ex Tony Romo still calls the American Idol winner.
“It was something that was said in passing, and I would never mean to say anything to hurt anybody or stir up anything, because I’m just not about drama…at all,” Carrie told the mag.
Jessica reacted by saying that there was no way her man was calling Carrie — and that she had looked at his call log to find out the truth.
And Carrie says she gets why Jess was pissed at her. “I might be mad too if somebody said my boyfriend was calling some other girl,” she said. “So I can definitely see where she would be coming from.”
Now, I’m not going to mention the fact that if you need to look through his call log to get the truth, chances are there are bigger issues. But really, Carrie! How could she be so naive as to think that a statement such as that isn’t going to offend anyone. But she wasn’t going to stop there. She still had a whole slew of celebrities to insult, by stating that she has no respect for anyone who publicly supports a presidential candidate. From US, ”
Carrie Underwood has a message for Oprah, Diddy, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and even Heidi and Spencer: Don’t publicly back candidates for office.
“There is someone I do support, but I don’t support publicly,” she tells TV Guide, as excerpted by Just Jared. “I lose all respect for celebrities when they back a candidate.
“It’s saying that the American public isn’t smart enough to make their own decisions,” she goes on. “I would never want anybody to vote for anything or anybody just because I told them to.
“Music is where you go to get away from all the BS,” adds Underwood, who recently apologized for saying ex Tony Romo still calls her. “Whether it’s from politics or just the world around you, music should be an escape.”
I don’t think anyone was saying anything about the American public until she brought them into it, to begin with. And I also don’t think that it’s wrong to publicly support one candidate or another or to choose to keep your opinion to yourself. I would much rather someone that I recognize speak from their heart and tell me why they are voting for someone, rather than have a politician reiterate their rehearsed speeches and tell me why they are the best. Whichever way you want to play it, whatever you want to say about politics, I think it’s an area that needs to be respected at all times and saying something such as you have no respect for people who publicly show support really does just seem idiotic to me.
