Carrie Underwood Responds To Homophobic Backlash!

carrie underwood pink dress dean pipers birthday responds to homophobic backlash

As one of the most sparkling queens of country music, Carrie Underwood has a good chunk of her fan-base living in the bible-belt.

So when she decided to publicly support gay marriage, she endured some of the most fiery backlash we've ever seen!

It's funny too. Most of the people condemning Carrie used religion in their reasoning, yet it was their fiery feedback that roared with hate.

After being called a "disgrace" and being accused of working with the devil, Carrie finally responded to all of their hell in a statement, saying:

"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.

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.

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."

So classy!

She definitely understands love one another, that's for sure!

We're proud of you, gurl. Stay strong and don't back down! A little controversy means you've stood up for something you believe in.

And standing up for gay marriage doesn't harm anyone or hinder civil rights, so even better! Ha!

    The ones that are condemning Carrie are the biggest frickin hipocrites you will ever meet. They get drunk and curse up a storm one minute and the next minute they are preaching the service. Nothing worse than a southern bible thumper!!

    Keep fighting the fight Carrie.

  2. 2

    This is very similar to when the Dixie Chicks made unfavorable comments about GW Bush. They really suffered for that - even though they were right.

  3. 3

    Can't stand this hillbilly with her big fake chompers. But glad she supports gay rights. Only a moron wouldn't.

  4. 4

    Shut up, Perez. Gay rights shouldn't matter to you because no one wants you. You're too fug and you're too stinky (you always look like you smell like sweaty feet). Give it a rest already.
    Underwood knew her fan base. I don't care what hate you liberals throw at conservatives (and you all do it, so cram your denials because we all know they're lies); everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion. But once that opinion is expressed publicly, a celebrity can expect his or her fan base to react. If she couldn't think her answer through, she should have declined to answer the question until she could have a more prepared response available. She's been in the entertainment industry several years now; she's no newbie. Even she can't be stupid enough to think that what she said wouldn't be published and reacted to. Idiot.

    So, Carrie,
    You want to delve into the political realm, instead of just singing us a song, go ahead.
    Make our day.
    You know it's controversial and you still decided to speak up.
    It's our perogative to Dixie Chick you because of your stance.
    You people need to look toward the Michael Jordan concept…all money is green…
    why screw with that when so many fans will be offended.
    Just shut up and sing.

    Poor Omniscient Gal…she posts on every one of Perez' topics with the same trolling attitude. She doesn't take a stand. She's just another troll who opposes everybody elses stand.

    Sad girl.

  11. 11

    Her career is over, just like the Dixie Chicks.

  12. 12

    These interviewers should stop asking these artists their political and personal opinions. If she wants to support something, then I am sure she would openly do something. Don't put her on the spot.

    BRAVO Carrie!!!

    It's not that Christians are homophobic or hate gays or hate Carrie Underwood. It's that marriage is defined in the Christian bible as being a man and a women - it is written this way throughout the bible in several places. I say yes be in love, be happy, and get United in a United ceremony and leave the word marriage out of it. We don't redefine others term/words/definations. In the end we all face our maker!

    I won't purchase anything from Carrie Underwood and have and will continue to turn off the radio when she's on and I've been a fan since 2005 - American Idol days.

    Re: LovesGossip – learn how to spell hypocrites, you can agree or disagree with Carrie you can also agree or disagree with the bible what you cant do is change the misquote the bible to make it agree with your political views
