Carrie Underwood Plays It Safe

| Filed under: PolitikCarrie Underwood

Hey, Carrie!

Don't hate! Appreciate the different ways that people express themselves politically.

For goodness sake, this is America!

In a recent interview Underwood said, "I lose all respect for celebrities when they back a candidate. It's saying that the American public isn't smart enough to make their own decisions. I would never want anybody to vote for anything or anybody just because I told them to."

We think that's an unfair statement, Carrie!

Why are you assuming to know where people are coming from when they voice their political opinions?

Are you projecting, missy?

    she's totally right



  2. 2

    I would do the same. Voting should be private.



  3. 3

    If people are aware of everything they should talk, however there's a lot of people who say something about a candidate just to look smart… in part she's right… but every and anyone are free to say whatever they feel like, they should take the consequences…



  4. 4

    poor thing??……girl is on top of the world……oozing talent……..and smart to boot



  5. 5

    I totally agree with her.

    Miss thing .. YOU are Not All That

    Pa lease



  7. 7

    i COMPLETELY agree with her statement! She is right, whether people want to believe it or not, celebrities persway peoples votes… I'm Canadian, but I would vote for Obama if I wasnt.. BUT part of me cant help but think that it is because of this site, and the MASS amount of content posted for Obama… Nothing negative have been posted yet, and I am sure he has a few flaws. Who doesnt?



  8. 8

    she's an idiot…can't stand her



  9. 9

    leave her the fuck alone fat ass, she has a point, all these celebs think they have the power to convice us to vote for their candidate of choice. And most dumbasses are buying it.

  10. 10

    I agree with her 100%. I wish celebs would shut their big traps about their political views. Who cares what they think?



  11. 11

    That comment may bite her in her a** one day…



  12. 12

    i mean, it's free speech. I love hearing celeb's views on candidates, because I really think their personalities reflect who they vote for. It has helped me become informed by hearing so many celeb's takes on politics. It's their right to be able to endorse a candidate, and it's totally cool.



  13. 13

    I think maybe what she should have said was "Celebrities who tell people to go out and vote and encourage voting should not turn around and say you MUST vote Obama or they will move to another country if McCain wins." The whole point of voting is that it is your choice. Who a celeb endorses really doesn't make any difference to me anyway.



  14. 14

    who cares if a celebrity is backing a candidate, their regular people who vote just like the rest of us



  15. 15

    What is she on about? Celebs have just as much right to voice their openion as ordinary people.



  16. 16

    I AGREE!!



  17. 17

    she is right, its gross.and oooh "projecting" huh? didnt know you had your psychology degree.



  18. 18

    quite possibly THE smartest thing ANY celebrity has ever said. HERE HERE CARRIE!



  19. 19

    Gotta agree with her. None of anybody else's business.



  20. 20

    She is an idiot! Celebrities are Americans who can voice their opinions like anyone else!!!



  21. 21

    Whatever Perez. Just because you and so many other celebrities shamelessly flaunt that you're voting for Obama, doesn't mean others can have an opposite opinion.

    I think she's totally right and I agree with her 100%. More power to her.



  22. 22

    GOOD FOR HER!!!! She so right…Hollywood needs to stick to what they gt paid to do, entertain not give political speeches. If they want to be in politics then they should run for office!



  23. 23

    I definitely agree with her. I'm so sick of everyone pushing their decisions on me. Especially because I'm a first time voter- I feel like I'm getting it from all angles .. professors, family members, and CELEBRITIES. So annoying.



  24. 24

    I completely agree with Carrie!!!! I've lost respect for so many people due to that



  25. 25

    I do not understand your point Perez. She is so right. It is the biggest turnoff when celebrities get all political. The only interest I have in celebrities is for them to entertain me.



  26. 26

    She's right, it's a tacky, stupid thing to do. "Hey people I'm a star so do what I do, you stupid little ignoramuses." Yeah, so classy. Some things should be kept private. Religion, too, Tom Cruise, Kabbalists, Christians, etc!!!



  27. 27

    I AGREE WITH HER 100% ! honestly, do i really care if Oprah is for Obama ?

    when it comes down to voting it should be PERSONAL values, not the popularity of the candidate !

    BOB BARR '08 !



  28. 28

    She's right. Everytime some tard celebrity backs up a candidate by opening their big mouths and pockets…I RUN in the other direction. In terms of politics I have no respect for Hollywood and their opinion. Soooo…let me get this straight…say your a successful actor and make a shit ton of money every year. Ok! The best thing to do is vote for the person who is going to tax the crap out of rich people. That makes sense!



  29. 29

    Anyone who agrees with her is completely ridiculous and illogical. It is a bit of a stretch to say you would lose all respect for a celebrity just because they voice their views publicly. I find it hard to believe you could lose all respect for notable celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Tom Hanks who are well-known charity philanthropists just because of what they believe in. Point is , Sweetie, you're a walking contradiction! Good thing your music is decent because your logic totally blows!!! VOTE OBAMA!!!!!

  30. Sgirl says – reply to this


    30

    I absolutely agree with her. She's right. These people need to shut the fuck up they are living in a dreamworld. No one cares what they have to say. Most of them have no clue what they are saying or what they are voting for. It is ridiculous. Do we really give a shit that Akon (scumbag) wil move out of the country if McCain wins? Move now freak!



  31. 31

    I really don't like knowing, but is she claiming to be a celeb as well.
    She's a friggin american idol, someone's taking themself a bit too serious.
    Although Romo what the hell are you thinking, at least this girl seems to have a brain. No accounting for taste I guess.



  32. 32

    She is exactly right. I've offered free tickets to see Cher and Bette and some other mouthy celebrities who didn't finish high school but think they are political experts, while they live in mansions and ride in jets and tell us how to live. If i see an act, I want them to stfu and do what their "talent" is. I don't want a damn lecture from them. I don't care if they AGREE with me or not. That is not the point. they are talented but ignorant in so many ways. You never hear their sorry asses discussing string theory because they are basically stupid. Carrie went to college, has had decent parenting that makes her polite, and knows we don't want to hear her political theories, we want her to sing.
    btw, we don't want to hear yours either.



  33. 33

    She is soooo right!

    and no perez, stop saying " WE " we dont. fuck you.



  34. 34

    Yeah, i completely agree with her. I mean, look at Diddy's rock the vote campaign in 2004; total failure.



  35. 35

    hahahah I love that the majority of people agree with her and perez is expecting everyone to agree with him. it just makes my day. I agree with her!



  36. 36

    I agree with her. All of the celebrities endorsing Obama certainly makes me want to vote for him less bc I know my morals and the morals of a lot of those coke head celebs don't line up. It scares me to think I would be going with a trend that these people with no ethical or moral standards are behind. No thank you.



  37. 37

    Except…she's right. There are a lot of people who are easily influenced when it comes to voting. That's the same reason why people aren't supposed to wear any stickers or buttons showing their support at the polls.



  38. 38

    It's easy Perez. Just like everything else in Hollywood, being outspoken about politics is a fad. There are a few people in Hollywood that actually know what they're talking about, but dumb shits like Eva Longoria and Lindsay Lohan don't know what the fuck they are talking about. It becomes overbearing to listen to all of these dumb shits try to tell us who to vote for (like yourself), because they are not qualified to speak on the subject!! Do you honestly think a dumb bitch like Eva Longoria know the policies of Barack Obama? They make these videos because it is in vogue!!



  39. 39

    Preach on, sista! Carrie's right. Whether they realize it or not, celebrities have a huge influence on the American public. Although everyone has the right to free speech, I think celebrities should keep their opinions to themselves when it comes to politics.



  40. 40

    lol its sad that perez even thinks he is a celeb. thats why he is offended by her true and sweet statment because hes OBama's bitch. he knows nothing about politics either.

    perez. WE dont agree with you at all. only the 12 year old democrats living in canada do.



  41. 41

    Just like she has the right to comment on others, others have the right to comment on politics.



  42. 42

    I respect her even more for this



  43. 43

    I agree with Perez. Even though it may be annoying to some people when celebrities voice their opinion, it is still America. Its cool for her to say she don't want to endorse someone publicly but don't look down at others who do things differently from you. I find that comment to be really snobby…. Also voting should be whatever YOU want it it be. If you want to be private, great. But don't tell other people what to do. Regardless of who anyone is voting for, everyone should just be PROUD that so many people are stepping up to VOTE.



  44. 44

    Itsss the fucking TRUTH.. People look up to celebrities, they are VERY influential on people.. Your such a fucking scumbag Perez.. You tell people not to go out and vote unless they are voting for Obama, even if it was a fucking "joke" nobody wants to hear that shit, EVERYONE has their own opinion on things.. I'm glad she isn't out there talking half the shit you do, or any other celebrity has for that matter during this election, people should be able to decide for themselves.. She is a breathe of fresh air.. She is gorgeous, talented, and extremely smart.. Go Carrieeee.. Fuck you Perez for even making her sound bad for saying something TRUE.. look at most of the comments and I guarantee you, most will agree WITH HER not with you..



  45. 45

    Re: halielise

    Morons! You all know that by voicing ya'lls support for her statements that you all are basically agreeing with her because she is very much against voicing opinions and each one of you that supports her bat-shit crazy logic are doing just that! Think before you throw your support all you winners! VOTE OBAMA!



  46. 46

    So because they are a celeb, they can't back a candidate? Normal people do it all the time…



  47. 47

    I agree with her!! It's obnoxious the way that celebrities try to tell people what to do and then turn around and say they're voting for Obama. PLEASE…90% of the people in Hollywood didn't even finish high school, let alone have a degree in Political Science. They're all phonies.



  48. 48

    plus its not fair when you support a political person and the celeb you like in all your favorite movies calls sarah palin a stupid bitch or to suck it.

    then its like a pain because i have to sell all their movies and stop buying their CDs because they ruined it all. and now i cant like them.



  49. 49

    its america, people have every right to express their opinions, for example, my opinion is that carrie underwood is a dumb fugly slut =)



  50. 50

    that is the dumbest statement I have ever heard.. Hope she doesn't think that of Oprah, cause yo ass wont be sitting on her couch if you do.. Celebrities can back a candidate if they like. They are not telling Americans to vote for who they are voting for. They are merely showing you who they are voting for. Everyone is capable of makng there own decision, at least I think they are…(hehehe) Love



  51. 51

    I totally agree with her!



  52. 52

    November 4, 2008, could have been a shining moment in American history. After all, a black man is running for president, and might actually win. This should have united the country like never before, and come close to ending the racism that has been one of our nation's banes since its inception.
    However, because Obama used race to get himself to this point, while also pitting folks of differing incomes against each other for his own political benefit, it seems far more likely that tomorrow will divide our country like it hasn't been in over a century ushering back in hatred that will make Martin Luther King Jr. roll over in his grave.



  53. 53

    Go Carrie!

    I actually heard a group of girls state that they were voting for Obama because Oprah said too….. did they go online and find out the facts themselves? No. Do any kind of research? No. They voted a certain way because that is the way Oprah was voting…..
    SCARY!



  54. 54

    People are dumb here, everyone has their political opinions. Some people choose to voice them. I mean, if it's not going to sway you, why the fuck do you care if they say something or not?



  55. 55

    she's clearly for McCain. so annoying. i love celebs who show us their non-celebrity, patriotic side.



  56. 56

    she's entitled to her opinion, i'm entitled to mine. here's mine: HORRIBLE WEAVE, GIRL.



  57. 57

    Ugly.



  58. 58

    Re: dont be insane vote McCain
    You are everything that is wrong with our society you close minded freak. Maybe you should have looked at the issues before voting for McCain because he was a POW. Come on now, that is just ridiculous and they have a name for that: IGNORANCE! Get over the whole "blah blah blah I was a soldier blah blah blah I was in a war". It's a shame there are people like you who vote that way ignorance is clearly an epidemic with people supporting Underwood's statements luckily there are people like me who see more clearly! VOTE OBAMA!!



  59. 59

    she is right…i remember when voting used to be private…
    not saying that she did but if she says im voting obama she would most likely be praised
    if she voted mccain she would be considered a racist….i know that is what ive been called several times even though im not



  60. 60

    I'm not sure if my other post went thru or not but a big PS. to that.. While the average person may be able to run around and voice their opinion, even though most of us don't give press conferences and interviews talking about who were voting for, celebrities carry the "burden" of having people hang on their every word, and they really do influence people, so well yes, they have every right to voice their political opinions like everyone else, it isn't the same fucking thing.. They don't want to run around talking about their personal lives, their sex lives, they try to keep themselves private in many matters- and yet when it comes to talking about who their voting for, it's okay to shout that at the top of their lungs, isn't it? BS and you know it, don't be so hard on the fucking girl asshole..



  61. 61

    so now on my hate list is, Modonna,pdidy(aka dumbass),Akon(child abuser wife beater ),pam,oprah,chelsealatelyshow,matt damen(stupidass),all rappers.

    and so so so many more ( i know i got some names wrong but i dont really care)



  62. 62

    Well P, she is voicing her opinion, that is the American way! I think she made a very good point, and said it very well. If you have a thought out opinion, and you want to share it, why not? If you want to leave it alone, why not? I gained respect for her, reading her thoughts on this subject.



  63. 63

    She's 100% Right
    **
    **
    **
    Plus she's smart…why run the risk of alienating 50% of her fanbase. She likes both sides of her Toast buttered!!!!!
    **
    **
    Personally, ALL actors, musicans, celebtards LOSE my $$'s in the end. They may make a good movie or album but I'm NOT SPENDING A DIME ON THEM IN THE FUTURE…….My ONLY way of TELL them what I think….



  64. 64

    Re: zeebee – oh 13 year old sweety. thank god you cant vote yet. you get spoon fed BS by perezhilton.com. you want to ruin america.

    so please, really think about the issues. im gay. im voting republican. i love bdsm. i want gays to marry and i am voting mccain. im not close minded.

    you probably live in canada



  65. 65

    i completely agree. what ever happened with not telling anyone who you are voting for? celebrities are imposing their views on the public and so are you perez. Just because u and Katy Perry vote for Obama doesn't mean everyone else should.



  66. 66

    Re: princesskrista People do have the right to express their opinions here, funny how it's okay for you and everyone else to do it, but when she expresses her views that deserves and insult lmfao stupid ass



  67. 67

    With society these days people will do anything just because a celebrity does it, the clothes the hair everything, and now since the election is on everyones minds celebrities mostly being all liberals AND the media realize how much they can affect the American people. They want Obama and they're making YOU want Obama. She's just saying why don't you people stop listening to what the media is saying and think for yourselves, I bet you she's Republican.

    and P.S Perez, just because she's not coming out and saying who she's voting for and wearing a shirt to television interviews with Obama's face on it doesn't mean she's playing it safe, she's just not being obnoxious.



  68. 68

    Re: McCainIsMyHero – lets not give up just yet! ive got love for my boy!



  69. 69

    She is so dumb….no wonder all guys end up dumping her flat ass….



  70. 70

    This coming from someone who got their fame from PEOPLE VOTING? LOL! ummmmm ok. To each their own tho. Although quite presumptious to think someone would vote for a candidate because someone in the public eye says they are.



  71. 71

    and this is coming from someone who was on American Idol……
    the ultimate "vote for me" reality show.
    eat me underwood.



  72. 72

    She's totally right. If the media didn't make such a big deal about what celebrity is backing a certain candidate, I would feel differently; Unfortunately, the media makes it seem like the rest of America should feel exactly how a celebrity feels. Society has a weird obsession with celebrities these days. People rarely seem happy with being just themselves and not wanting Angelina Jolie's lips, Brad Pitt's sex appeal, or Perez Hilton's sarcasm. GO CARRIE UNDERWOOD!



  73. 73

    I guess she's a republican then. People seem to be afraid to admit they are republican in public. I think that says it all.

    Of course celebrities should show who they're voting for if they want to. I think this year, they got maaaany more to vote at all. It's not like all of them are telling you who to vote for, just to vote at all.
    People should know anyway where they stand.

    OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT!



  74. 74

    1st of all, it's their 1st amendment right to say whatever they want. The American people do NOT need to listen to them if they are not interested. 2nd, why should celebrities shut their trap, but newspapers and churchs can back candidates? They get their word out to as many people as celebrities do, if not more. So whether you like it or not, celebrities have every right to endorse whoever they wish. You, however, have the right to decide whether you agree with them or not.



  75. 75

    She's totally right tho'. They can back whomever they want but they shouldn't put that out as part of their paparazzi frenzy.



  76. 76

    soo true some people are such clebrity followers so if they agree on something others will too cuz they think its the "cool" thing to do because that certain celebrity said so.



  77. 77

    I agree with her



  78. 78

    I totally agree with her.

  79. Tater says – reply to this


    79

    yeah i think its funny how this year its "cool" to vote for obama, and you know why?
    because the media is telling us its the right thing… "celebrities" need to stick you what they know, and its not political advising.



  80. 80

    Re: && I got a thing for you!

    If you think Perez is such a "Fucking Scumbag" then why dont you do us all a favor and get the fuck off his website! If you dont like him so much its odd that you're on here…Idiots like you and Underwood are the reason why this country is all fucked up because of your fucked up beliefs and unfortunately you're entitled to them however shitty and ignorant they may be! VOTE OBAMA AND I LOVE YOU PEREZ KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK WE LOVE YOU PEREZZZZZERS!!!



  81. 81

    Goes both ways…she's allowed to say what she wants to say about those idiots that stuff their beliefs down the throats of others. (cough cough Perez cough cough)

    You're just mad she didn't come out and support Obama. Get over it. Not everyone is drinking the koolaide.



  82. 82

    If you're not a fuckin follower and you have your own fuckin brain (Unlike Underwood) then what a celebrity says shouldnt be able to sway you and if it does you have no business at a polling booth if you cant think for yourself and clearly most of the people on here supporting Underwood cant think for themselves…SO SAD…VOTE OBAMA AND I LOVE YOU PEREZ!!!!!



  83. 83

    She does have a point. Imagine if the Jonas Brothers said they endored McCain, all of the 18 + 19 year old voters would suddenly vote for McCain.

    You should base your political opinion on YOUR beliefs, not your favorite celebrity's.

    Oh, and I absolutely LOVE Carrie Underwood. She's so gorgeous, talented, and seems like a down-to-earth person. I'm seeing her in concert on December 12th, I am SO psyched.



  84. 84

    Re: princesskrista

    Couldnt agree more!



  85. 85

    I agree with her. I am so sick of people screaming about who they are going to vote for, celebs threatening to leave the country, etc.

    Just go vote and shut-up.

    Besides, you know any celeb who supports McCain will get blacklisted.



  86. 86

    She is AbsoFUCKINGlutely correct. Some SHEEPLE cannot make their own decsions so they follow what celebretards say.



  87. 87

    Re: John Mccain will save America – America[/re]

    Aww You're so cute! I'm actually 20 and I early voted for Obama. I have a 4-month-old girl and I'm from Oregon, not Canada sweetheart. But I understand you're kind of slow since you are voting for a candidate who hates gays like you . Real smart dude keep up the good work voting for oppression. That's smart and educated. I LOVE YOU PEREZ!



  88. 88

    Re: princesskrista – Well opinions are like Assholes…everyone's got one…and some of them *ahem* sink.



  89. 89

    i agree with her… the rest of us don't give a shit who you are endorsing, so quit shoving it in our face.



  90. 90

    I agree. Celebrities should stick to doing what we pay them to do…look pretty and play dress-up. They should also stop saying that they're going to leave the country if their candidate doesn't win. Who are they kidding? They're not going anywhere. In what other country could they make as much money as they do in the U.S.A.? Alec Baldwin didn't keep his promise. Unfortunately, I doubt Akon will either.



  91. 91

    THAT'S THE FIRST
    SMART BLONDIE
    I'VE SEEN IN AGES!!
    keep your shit to yourself….
    those out there screaming are just
    scared!!!
    wanna influence others…….
    vote. pick who YOU want….
    fuck celebutards…..



  92. 92

    Re: John Mccain will save America

    Go ahead and give up. Obama is going to win and eventually you will realize that it's good for you and I just know in the long run you will see it my way! Oh thank God for people like me who vote for the right people and who are here to lead uneducated, misinformed and ignorant people like you down the right way and that way is for OBAMA! I know tonight will be rough for you watching your poor old senile decrepit tempermental racist nursing home case lose tonight but I am here for you to show you that Obama is the much better choice! VOTE OBAMA!!

  93. nubsy says – reply to this


    93

    she's absolutely right. many young people are impressionable and when a celebrity says something is cool, they follow along. voting should be a private matter. sure everyone has the right to voice their opinion but celebrities need to be aware of how their voice is heard by others. when diddy says who he wants others to vote for obama, millions hear him. when the average non celebrity says who they are voting for, maybe 100 people here and chances are those 100 don't look up to them.



  94. 94

    She's got class!
    That's why she keeps it private!
    She actually respects people as well because she isn't interested in converting anyone!!!!
    Unlike you, Perez!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  95. 95

    I am now a fan of hers. It is not their place to endorse candidates. most of them are political morons anyway!



  96. 96

    Re: zeebee – Wow, and I thought those who followed Obama was in it for a change! I thought they wanted to share the love and peace! Not to insult and name call.

    Dems and Reps….. both do it. Everyone has a right to vote for their candidate… no need to spread HATE. If someone insults you…. just let them.



  97. 97

    She just saying that cause she don't wanna look like an idiot when McCain loses his ass. Guuurl, please! We know you country folk back McCain without even hearing your opinion.



  98. 98

    Re: zeebee – 88 - Great. Another teenager who can't keep her thighs closedl. No wonder you voted for Obama. You are probably one of those trailer tramps who will keep popping out babies expecting me to pay for them while you sit at home collecting welfare.



  99. 99

    Re: zeebee Oh please bitch.. he is a fucking scumbag.. and I have EVERY right to say so just like you have EVERY right to fucking disagree with me, get the fuck over yourself and don't start petty arguments with someone and tell them to leave because you don't like what they have to say, if I wanted to not fucking come on this site, I wouldn't plain and fucking simple, and I have a love/hate relationship with Perez if you must know you stupid fuck, have you ever liked someone or in this case some of what their doing but HATED alot of fucking stupid things they do? Yeah.. So fuck you for making uneducated and ignorant comments about shit you know NOTHING about.. stupid ass.. and FYI bitch, his site would not be half as successful as it is and he would not have made HALF as much money as he has doing this if it wasn't for people's contradicting opinions and his haters.. but for future reference you can actually like someone and not agree with some of the shit they do and some of the things they say.. Oh and did I mention fuck you? Not all of us are "die-hard" Perez fans like you fucking twit, we realize people can have contradicting opinions in the real world and don't feel the need to tell people to leave, like your opinion really fucking matters to anyone but you.. PS. Maybe I would have responded to you more respectfully if you didn't type/act like a fucking 12 yr old.. grow up and then come get at me fucking loser…



  100. 100

    shes completely right
    perez you dont count as a celebrity sorry to break it to you
    your a blogger, youre meant to write about your opinion
    so its okay that you push obama on people
    but other celebrities persuade people
    and shouldnt
    every single person in media is a democrat
    and that is whats pushed on the audience
    its bullshit
