All American Morning News with Eric Scott
5/9/2012 (TheBoot.com) — Carrie Underwood may exude a flawless and poised persona on stage, but that’s in part because she learned early on in her career how important it is to be extra-careful in front of a crowd or a camera.
“I’m glad I can present a polished version of myself when it counts,” the “Good Girl” singer maintains (quote via CBS News). “When I was on [‘American] ‘Idol,’ I said some dumb stuff, and learned what that could do, and that stuff lives on. It seemed like every single solitary stupid thing I said was aired and featured and replayed over and over and over again.”
Carrie has since learned to watch her words on stage, but she hasn’t necessarily learned the same lesson in her personal life. “My husband [professional hockey player Mike Fisher] calls me ‘the queen of awkward moments,'” Carrie acknowledges. “If something can be said to make an awkward moment even worse, I’m going to say it.”
