Carrie Underwood - "Elle" December 2008

Carrie Underwood -

Country superstar Carrie Underwood gets perky for the December 2008 cover of Elle. The complete article will be going live tomorrow along with a behind-the-scenes video from the cover shoot. In the meantime, this is what the 25-year-old former American Idol champ had to say about fame, her voice and that other blond:

On the rumor she was dating Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps: “I swear on everything, on my job, on my house, my dog…That’s how serious I am. It’s all just a lie. Anytime any [media source] ever says ‘a friend said,’ or ‘a close’ whatever – no, they didn’t! It’s just made up. None of my friends would say anything. Ever. About anything!”

On her comment that a taken Tony Romo still calls her: “It was just something that was said in passing, and I would never mean to say anything to hurt anybody or to stir up anything, because I’m just not about drama. At all. I might be mad too if somebody said my boyfriend was calling some other girl. So I can definitely see where she [Jessica Simpson] would be coming from. But I haven’t talked to him since, like, May.”

On whether or not she’s dating someone: “If I say I am or I’m not, as soon as this magazine comes out, it might be the opposite of what I tell you now. In three months, it’ll be ‘Carrie said she’s not dating anybody,’ yet last night, I was out on the town with some guy. He’s going to get mad at me. Everybody’s going to think I’m a liar. It’s just best not to go there.”

On life on the road: “I don’t know how people do it. It’s tiring. It’s hard. Right now I do a lot because I have no reason not to. I don’t have a husband or kids. If I go home, I’m home by myself. I have no reason not to be on the road, no reason not to just get out there and do everything right now, while I’m young enough to, while I can enjoy it. But I think when I get a little older, I definitely want to slow down, just because it’s very stressful. It’s hard on your body, hard on your mind, hard on your emotions.”

On dealing with celebrity: “I knew what I was signing up for, and I’m not complaining at all. I’ve learned how to deal with it, and my life is great, I’m a happy person. What are you going to do? Give it all up? No!”

” “It was just something that was said in passing, and I would never mean to say anything to hurt anybody or to stir up anything, because I’m just not about drama. At all.”

Sounds a bit too coy, I think she knows how to stir things up just fine.

omg!! watch paramore’s new video!!
please, JustJared post this on your site.

i dont like her. she seems really fake like fame has gone to her head. She could learn a thing or two about being humble from Taylor Swift.

i agree… she used to be so humble… now she has just bought into the fame life. stay humble girl or else it’s all gonna go away.

Tia how does it seem like fame has gone to her head? She hasn’t changed since her days on Idol from her interviews, maybe she’s become more smart on what she should reveal to media sources.

i agree with poster 12 and 13!! she used to be sweet and now she’s annoying and cocky. i don’t even like her voice anymore.

Tia how has fame gone to her head?

Carrie is a sweet ,adorable and yes humble woman.
Taylor ” oh gosh your clapping for me!!!” Swift ( how fake can you be) could learn a thing or two from Carrie.

I love her. She is so talented.

Spactic smile. Her nose looks really big and flat. She is a famewhore! Paparazzi-hungry sl*t!

I don’t think she is arrogant at all! I think most people when they achieve a great deal of success, may let it go to their head a bit, but she seems refreshingly down to earth. I think she is cute and talented, and obviously has done well for herself. Tony was a fool for letting her get away. Also, I think Carrie has become more savy about how to handle the media and how much personal information to divulge. Some things like how you are dating, etc. should be kept close to the vest IMO.

who you are dating

Carrie needs to tone down her arrogant attitude a bit. She’s cute and that’s it. The media is trying to create a sexy Carrie, but I just don’t think she is sexy at all. Cute, pretty maybe, but in no way sexy.

First thing, she needs to get rid of that mop on her head. What look is she going after, the Farrah Fawcett 70′s look?

She’s an ok singer but she needs to reinvent herself!!! Looking at Carrie is like listening to the same old song over and over….

oh my god. are some of you serious ??
Carrie has not let game get to her head at all ! Everytime she recieves a new award she’s always so humble and always thanks the fans and american idol because she knows that is where she started..
She’s the most successful AI winner out of everyone . yet she is still very likeable .. She seems so down to earth and she also seems very real ..

Screw Jessica Simpson anyway .. she’s just a stupid jealous person..
&& for someone that compared Taylor Swift to Carrie. get a grip.
They’re both great artists in the country industry and they are both equally humble and great.

Wow! She looks great in these pictures!!

Don’t say anything negative about Obama. Jared won’t allow it !

#21 . she’s an OKAY singer.
can you please please get your ears checked..
If you’re a hater you can say all the things that you want about how she needs to get rid of that haircut and what not ..
but even the haters should know that Carrie has one of the greatest voices in the industry..
her voice isn’t just OKAY .
she’s got one of the best voices in country music let a lone music itself
&& you can tell that she has real talent cuz she can actually sing LIVE.. and she still sounds the same as she did in the recording.
