Carrie Underwood is swiftly tarnishing her goodie-two-shoes American Idol image with a bad case of foot-in-mouth syndrome.
In an interview with Elle, the singer insists that her now-infamous Tony Romo remark was taken out of context, and that she hasn't spoken with the football player - whom she was once linked with - since May.
She says, "I don’t think people realize that when you do an interview, the magazine comes out six months later. 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."
Fellow Idol alum and pal Kellie Pickler is quick to defend Underwood with, "She’s so talented, and she’s sweet and beautiful—all in one package. For anyone to say anything bad about her—I think they’re jealous."
Jessica Simpson is probably jealous of her career!
