Carrie Underwood in hot water for supporting gay marriage

Carrie Underwood found herself in trouble with some fans after coming out in support of gay marriage.

In an interview with British newspaper The Independent, the country music star said she believes everyone should have the right to love. She went on to say that her church was gay-friendly and that it’s not her job to judge people.

Underwood’s comments created a backlash online from those angry with her stance. When asked about it later she said she is all about the music, not politics.

“I was asked a difficult question in the last five minutes of an interview and I answered it the best way I knew how, and after that I do what I do and I love making music and I generally try to stay out of any kind of controversy,” she told The Associated Press in an interview on Tuesday.

That said, Underwood is a former “American Idol” and Grammy winner who knows what she says will be heard.

“The role-model word is really scary to me, because no matter what happens in your life, something you do, wear, say, sing, whatever – somebody somewhere is probably not going to like it too well,” she said. “I just really try hard to do what I do and try to be nice to people and make great music and if people think they can look up to that, that’s wonderful. If not, that’s OK too.”

I agree with Carrie completely. Religion (and I’m religious) gets a very bad rap for being judgmental. And I don’t believe it’s our job to judge, either. You can do more good just by loving people than you can by judging them.

Carrie Underwood Tries to Loosen Up

Carrie Underwood may always look/seem perfect, because she’s very conscious of how she’s portrayed in the media. Still, after four albums and numerous hits, the star is really trying to loosen up.

OMG reports that Underwood learned fast about how she presented herself on her season of American Idol.   “It seemed like every single solitary stupid thing I said was aired and featured and replayed over and over and over again.”

Now,  the singer is glad that she had those blunders.   Underwood says, “I can present a polished version of myself when it counts.” And she definitely can, and has! But now,  she’s trying to show her personality and get goofy every once in a while, especially when she writes her songs.  “Before you have a chance to think about something, you blurt it out and it doesn’t make any sense, and everybody gets a good laugh out of it. You can’t be afraid to sound completely dumb when you go to write.” Aw!  This superstar is successful and incredibly loved by everyone who works with her, and this is one reason why.

We love Hollywood stories like these!

Carrie Underwood is the June cover girl for Glamour Magazine!

Mega-hot Carrie Underwood is back in the spotlight after a year-long, blissed-out honeymoon (lucky girl!). Now on the eve of her fourth album, the country star talks to Jonah Weiner—and doesn’t hold back. Read on for an excerpt of her June 2012 Glamour interview.

Glamour: You come from a working-class background, and your songs reflect that. But that’s not you anymore. Is it possible to write a great country song about being rich and famous?

Carrie Underwood: With no irony? I don’t think so, because country music is for real people. I think it would be very hard to write about my Louboutins. Do you know what I mean? My giant house, it’s not relatable. But my husband came from a small town and hardworking parents like I did, and I don’t think we’ve lost that mind-set. We don’t have a bowling alley in our basement. We don’t have houses on the beach and one in New York and one in L.A. I drive a three-year-old Ford Escape Hybrid. We don’t care about stuff like that.

Glamour: What was the first big, irresponsible, awesome purchase you made when your career took off?

Carrie Underwood: My first stupid purchase was an accident. I was in Paris and went into one of those big, name-brand, fancy-schmancy designers, and I picked up a sweatshirt. Maybe I didn’t understand the price tag. I’m really bad with numbers. But when I went to check out, that sucker was $2,000.

Glamour: Two thousand dollars for a sweatshirt! What was it made of?

Carrie Underwood: Not cashmere but thicker than cotton. I’ve worn it twice.
