Carrie Underwood Responds to Gay Marriage Backlash
Carrie Underwood hits the stage at Royal Albert Hall on Thursday (June 21) in London, England.
“What an incredible night! Thank you all for being so wonderful at the @RoyalAlbertHall! I can’t wait to come back!” the 29-year-old country star tweeted after performing her first show in the UK.
Carrie recently chatted with the Associated Press about the backlash she’s received since publicly voicing support for gay marriage.
“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 shared.
“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,” Carrie added. “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.”
