Carrie Underwood: Don't Watch Me Shopping For Underwear

Carrie Underwood: Don't Watch Me Shopping For Underwear

American Idol alum Carrie Underwood takes the cover of Entertainment Weekly this week.

And for good reason! Her 2005 debut album, Some Hearts, is the most successful record from any Idol contestant. It’s sold nearly 6 million copies, squeaking by Kelly Clarkson‘s Breakaway. Here are some interview snippets:

On, all these user reviews say… ”She’s not country.” [Makes raspberry noise and sticks her thumbs down] Okay, here’s my thing: On Top 40 stations, nobody cares that you’ll have Fergie next to 50 Cent. They’re different. Why can’t you have me next to somebody that’s more traditional country? You can call me ”not country” until your face is blue, but I sing country music.

On if she likes being famous: I love being able to perform in front of people. I like potentially making a difference in somebody’s day or somebody’s life. Sometimes things can get kind of scary. Like, I was in Victoria’s Secret the other day, which I went to for the first time last year, ’cause, I don’t know, I have a weird thing about that… I have problems going into a store like that. I’m a private person, and I don’t want people knowing what kind of underwear I like. It’s creepy! But these girls followed me the whole time, and I’m like, ”Man, they see every single pair of underwear I’m putting in my little shopping bag!” Just say something. Say hey, I’ll say hey, it’ll be good, and then we can both continue shopping.

On her once-upon-a-time blossoming relationship with NFL quarterback Tony Romo: “At one point it seemed like that’s where it was headed but point blank, he is about football. I don’t know if it’s that I’m not quite his type or whatever, but I don’t think he’s at the point in his life where he would be willing to sacrifice football. He hated so much that people thought that he was paying more attention to me and that was causing him to not do well.” (Well let’s hope Chace Crawford causes him not to act well on Gossip Girl!)
