When it comes to being a role model, Carrie Underwood (www.carrieunderwoodofficial) admittedly takes her role very seriously. In a recent magazine interview that circulated everywhere from CNN to People to tabloids like OK Magazine, she acknowledged that it’s “scary” but an absolute must.
“I take it very seriously, and my motto is I would never want to do anything that would embarrass my own children in the future,” Carrie says. “I think that’s the best way to look at things. I never want to do anything that would make my parents, my role models, disappointed in me.”
But sometimes, taking a stand has its critics. When the “Jesus Take the Wheel” singer shared her views on gay marriage with a British newspaper, basically saying “it’s not her job to judge people,” a few of her fans weren’t exactly shy about communicating their disappointment. Some even questioned her openly Christian beliefs.
While it would’ve been easy to back down in the wake of angry comments, Carrie stuck to her guns in favor of kindness. Admitting she has no interest in being a public spokesperson on the subject, she pointed everyone toward love, rather than judgment.
