Carrie Underwood Covers 'Self' January 2010

Carrie Underwood Covers 'Self' January 2010

Carrie Underwood is a casual beauty on the January 2010 cover of Self. Here’s what the 26-year-old girlfriend of hockey player Mike Fisher had to say:

On her biggest pet peeves being animal neglect and kitchen chaos : “I hate it when people don’t take care of their pets. It’s important to spay or neuter them… And it drives me crazy when people put stuff in the wrong place. When I have people over and they try to help clean up, I’m like, ‘No, I’ve got it!’ I may not be able to control every aspect of my life, but I can control where my pots go and what color cups are lined up where. The red ones go here.”

On ways to blow off steam: “If I’m ticked off, I’ll get a punching bag and beat the crap out of it… I [also] love Monday Night Football and The Biggest Loser, and I rarely miss an episode of American Idol.”

On wanting to start a family: “Not that I have a husband to have one with yet, but someday I’d like a family”not a big one, but not a small one either. Two kids is good; three is fine. Four? Somebody’s getting something done, because we ain’t having five!”

  • shell

    Why because she doesn’t like shit put in the wrong cabinet? I hate that too…that’s far from controlling.

  • Andy

    Love Carrie, and especially love how she started out with big hair and slightly chubby and transformed herself into a fashionista!!

    Love you Carrie!!! XOXOXOXO

    Great article on her here:

  • Amanda

    Okay, having stuff put where it doesn’t belong is really annoying. I can find you five or six people that agree with me. And saying that a certain number of kids is not going to happen is perfectly fine. She would be the one doing the work, she gets to make the decision.

  • amanda

    I LOVE her!

  • Big Pimpin’

    one of the prettiest photo shoots ever

    Holy, she has no idea how RIGHT she is, and how common this issue is. We had relatives over for the weekend, and because they insisted on helping out with everything in the kitchen, a nice box of crystal china smashed to the floor.

    My mom was so pissed, but she couldn’t say anything out of courtesy even though she was hosting them.

    Totally agree with you Carrie, and it’s not control, it’s more about knowing how things work in your kitchen without adding ten hands.

    cute girl but i think she must be annoying in life
    she seems like one of those chicks that never stop talking
    she kinda reminds me of jessica simpson, but she’s a dumbass like her fortunately

  • Barney Baby

    She is so perfect

  • okla

    We still hope that Carrie will save her hometown movie theater

  • Amanda

    @lakers fan in boston: Carrie’s actually really shy in real life….so that shows how much you know.

  • Stone

    If she was my pet I’d take excellent care of her!

    @lakersfaninboston (Carrie graduated summa cum laude from college and definitly has common sense. She IS NOT a “Dumbass like Jessica Simpson”. I think she is far from it.!)
