Carrie Underwood bitch-slaps Hollywood

November 4th, 2008 // 96 Comments

Country music star Carrie Underwood has no love for celebrities who can’t keep their endorsements to themselves, according to TV Guide:

“There is someone I do support, but I don’t support publicly. 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.

You’re right, Carrie Underwood, celebrities should stop endorsing candidates. (Except for McLovin. That kid’s hilarious!) Which is why you should bikini wrestle Lindsay Lohan and Elisabeth Hasselbeck in the mudpit I made with a garden hose out back. But don’t do it for the camera hidden in the lawn gnome. Do it for democracy!

    # 48 Bono is an idiot he lives the life of riley and if he cared so much he’d reduce his footprint and donate shitloads of money. If i want political intelligence i’ll go to an educated academic not singers/actors/assorted idiots. They don’t live in the real world and therefore don’t deal with the shit consequences of government decisions.

    “Just because the mike is on, it doesn’t mean that you spout out any stupid shit that occures in your little pea-brain. ”

    Jesus. What part of “free speech” do people misunderstand (or, as Bush would say, misunderestimate)? If you disagree, argue. Saying “shut up” is the Islamic way. She’s telling celebrities to keep their mouths shut for the same reason Republicans try to suppress voter turnout: the people they’re trying to silence mostly support Democratic candidates. If all of her celebrity friends were endorsing McCain/Palin she’d be chirping along mindlessly along with them.

    Good for her. The reason they have voting booths is to keep your vote private other wise it could just be a show of hands. You know if all the money that was spent on political campaigns & mud slinging was put towards research on finding cures they might find one for all these dumb ass remarks. Grow up America! It dosen’t matter who gets elected they are just puppets for the people who really run this country. Welcome to Corporate America!

    Egads #12, don’t EVER give up your day job…

    #16, but at least I bet she knows how to spell CARIBOU you fucking dumbass.

  9. I Love Carrie

    She is simply stating that it is one thing to support a candidate, but don’t advertise it. Why? Because just look at how obsessed people are with celebrities and their lives, if Oprah says “Read this book”, people flock and buy it and it becomes a super best-seller. If she said I support Ralph Nader, he would get a huge amount of votes because people are stupid and believe what celebrities actually say. I think a lot of Americans are dumb and don’t know the issues behind the candidates, they only see who Oprah picks or who Brad and Angolina vote for and they want to be like them and vote the same way…STUPID! I’ll never say who I vote for to anyone, it is my choice and my business. Celebrities should keep their mouths shut too…more than anyone else.

    #3 and #4 are the perfect example that most people are stupid. Anyone who cares what Oprah or Tina Fey (et al) think about politics is a moron. Anyone who chooses their candidate based on who celebrities endorse is a dangerous moron. Yes, celebrities are entitled to hold their political views and vote for whomever they wish, but to abuse their fame, earned by taking money from the masses, to try to sway those who idolize them is dishonorable.
    Furthermore, if I were to go to a Dixie Chicks concert, which I won’t because I don’t like crappy music, I would go to hear the music, not listen to their political views. They are performers. perform. don’t talk.
    Keep in mind that celebrities are celebrities because they are pretty or handsome, or can sing, not because they have better insight into politics.
    It is time for all Americans to step up and think for themselves.

  12. Capitalism/Socialism

    Economies in capitalist systems are essentially unplanned, so they often crash, producing depressions that damage the lives of millions. Socialist economies are planned, which means that problems can be foreseen and prevented. Ultimately, socialism guides with the aim of human happiness in mind, rather than the glorification or gratification of a particular individual or class. To gain this for all rather than just for some requires an element of social control – the excesses of capitalism will forever mean that too many fall by the wayside as the strong profit, and the weak are left behind. Examples such as Britain’s National Health Service, or the European social model of welfare provision show the strengths of a socialist approach.

    Carrie Underwood is smarter than a lot of celebrities twice her age (in this matter at least).

    I don’t care what a celebrity thinks about politicians. Why does their opinion matter to us? Just because they are famous for having a job doing a tv show or movie or sing or something doesn’t make their opinions any more valid or informed than anyone else’s.

  14. mumin08

    Best celebrity comment on the candidates in the circus of enter-dorsements.

  15. leslie

    go ahead, Carrie!

  16. Sarah

    That’s ridiculous. America CAN vote for whomever they want, I don’t know many who listen to celebs for their candidates. Celebs should be able to publicly announce who they support without worrying about influencing the general public.

  17. HM

    Carrie is correct. With few exceptions, people in the entertainment industry are uneducated idiots who have large followings of equally uneducated idiots. Anyone who thinks they don’t have influence over those followers are fools.
    #18 said it best with her Ben Franklin quote. Idiots and fools really shouldn’t vote.

  18. janine

    Who cares what this country bumpkin thinks. Celebs who say they don’t speak about who they are voting for are mostly Republicans. Go Obama

  19. kim

    Carrie Underwood is a loser anyway….as if someone cares what she thinks.

  20. jessicas

    She can’t tell someone what to say or think bc people are smart enough to make their own decisions about who they are voting for. No wonder Carrie has no friends and can’t keep a man bc she always runs off at the mouth. Obama “08″

  21. courtney

    Carrie Underwood is very annoyning…..she always has something dumb to say bc she wants to stay relevant. She loves her some George W Bush

  22. King Monkey

    “It’s saying that the American public isn’t smart enough to make their own decisions”

    Yeah …. we’re the ones walking around with an entourage cuz we can’t wipe our own asses or drive ourselves to the store

  23. OBAMA'08

    for those of you confused bunches here is the key to the first part of my previous post……. *** EQUALS “I” **** EQUALS “E” ***** EQUALS “U” ****** EQUALS “A”.so replace the “?”‘s in the following comment with the appropriate letter……enjoy——————————————————————-She’s a B”?”TCH, so who the H”??”LL cares, plus she probably is in love with that old F”???”CK from Arizona and wants him to stick his D”?”CK up her F”???”CK”?”NG “????”SS, OBAMA IN ’08 BABY!——————————————————————-

  24. Suzi

    I hate her now.

  25. Katherine

    This whore knows she’s a hard-core Republican and just doesn’t want to admit it. She’s probably voting Yes on Prop Eight in Cali as well. She just doesn’t want to admit that she is because all the people who do her hair and makeup, that take her from looking like white trash to Country Diva are probably gay. Yes, “Jesus take the wheel” and while your at it run Carrie UnderHOOD over with your car, and do us all a favor.

    p.s Did you guys know that she called Jessica Simpson fat? Some nerve coming from a girl who used to yank cow tits for a living.

  26. Kim

    what a dumb bitch.
    carrie – ever heard of free speech?

  27. nikki

    I hope Oprah sits on this bitch.

    Probably the stupidest comment everrr… fuck off Carrie Underwood.

  28. ahark

    She is busy with her online dating thing, Her profile was seen at the fitness & celebrity dating club ^^^^^^FitnessKiss. C O M^^ ^^^^ yesterday.

  29. Jeff

    She is absolutely correct, and it needed to be said.
    Too bad most of you are to stupid to really get it.

  30. freber

    Translation: I like McCain but am too embarrassed to admit it.

  31. Sarah Palin

    G0ds will must be done. Pray for that. Pray for our servicemen being sent to fight wars, they are being sent to do g0ds will. Pray for them as they do g0ds work.

    And most of all, pray that I am elected Vice President! Oh yea, pray that John McCain is elected President!

  32. Baloney

    God she’s an idiot. She has a voice, not just for singing. God forbid she has an opinion. She clearly just trying to avoid losing sale on her next album.

    If you say nothing, you count for nothing.

  33. Baloney

    God she’s an idiot. She has a voice, not just for singing. God forbid she has an opinion. She clearly just trying to avoid losing sale on her next album.

    If you say nothing, you count for nothing.

  34. Baloney

    God she’s an idiot. She has a voice, not just for singing. God forbid she has an opinion. She clearly just trying to avoid losing sale on her next album.

    If you say nothing, you count for nothing.

  35. Carrie Has Butt Herpes

    Carrie Underwood is a no-talent hag. She wants real celebs to keep their mouths shut, but here she is spewing garbage from her pie hole and she’s nothing but a z-list reality show has-been. Hypocrite bitch needs to STFU.

    And yes she does have ugly, beady snake eyes.

  36. ……………….THIS FAKER LIKES ME?

  37. Mama Pinkus

    Heaven forbid that celebrities dare to exercise their right to free speech. Stupid bitch.

  38. ANOYMOUS

    I HATE THE ROAD THE USA IS GOING BASED ON THE WIN OF LAST NIGHT, IF IT IS SO THAT HE REALLY WON, CONCIDERING THE OFFICALS LOOKING FOR FRAUD….BALLOT, ESPECIAL BY RACIST SEEKING VANGENCE ON THE WHITE RACE…… AND THROUGH OF THE JEWISH RACE……ANYONE I’M NOT STAYING IN THIS COUNTRY WITH THAT AS PRESIDENT……..GOOD LUCK ,YALL!!!!

  39. Peanut

    In other words, she supported McCain but knew he would lose and didn’t want to look like an idiot.

    WHOOPSIE, TOO LATE.

  40. reality

    Carrie is a democrat on public record. I agree with her 100%. She had some balls to say that and I’m glad she did. Some many Americans don’t want to hear some celebritiy giving them political advice. It turns me off too. I don’t want to hear it. You got a view fine and I’ll form my view myself from getting educated on the facts.

  41. She's right

    She’s completely right. And the only people that disagree with her are the exact same ones that voted for a certain candidate because *insert celebrity here* told them to vote for that candidate.

    The only problem I have with her comment is: “It’s saying that the American public isn’t smart enough to make their own decisions.”

    Most Americans are stupid. I bet 90% of the youth of this nation DID vote because a celebrity told them to vote for someone they edorse. Only furthermore proving her statement to be true.

    Thank you for putting these retards in their place.

  42. spj

    i don’t buy into celebrity endorsements of candidates. i think they can be really annoying most of the time. however, i think carrie’s rationale is WEAK. if you believe strongly in something, even if it’s annoying, you should have the balls to talk about it. she tries way to hard to be a goodie two-shoes, which in my humble opinion is even more annoying than celebrities who talk politics.

  43. MCcains tumor

    What the Hell is she wearing, did she steal that from the Swiss Miss lady.

  44. Alan5

    Seeing that she’s in Country, she was wise to say this.
    Chances are she went with McCain, not that she really likes him, but
    Country Music is a Republican wasteland.

    Speaking of waste, where did she get that outfit from?

  45. You are all a complete embarrassment!

    You are all an embarrassment to this country! Why must we turn politics into this drama filled chaos? RIDICULOUS! We all have different views and different opinions but that does NOT mean we must sit here and slander one another. The election is over and I will tell you that I voted for John McCain, but I have many friends who voted for Barack Obama! However, that does not mean that I have an issue with Barack Obama running this country. He is now the president and we should ALL respect him and the job he does! We should also all respect each others difference of opinion!

    Now… Not all of you are as ignorant as our friend # 85 who thinks that simply the girl doesn’t wish to give her polictical views now make her a “no-talent hag”??? what is wrong with you? And for those of you who say that country music stars are all republicans… check again and look at the so called “king and queen” of country music Tim McGraw and Faith Hill who are democrats and voted Barack Obama!

    I am just sit of this type of bull shit that splits our country! It is you people who are to blame for the hell this country is in so look in the mirror, say a prayer to God (b/c lord knows you need him), and them come back to this website with some sense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    What difference would it make if she had endorsed a candidate of your preference or not? How would that affect her as a celebrity and as an American? Being a famous celebrity is tougher than being an American. You all need to differentiate those two lives. If she had endorsed one or the other, she will still have fans running away from her either ways. Why judge her based on political views? She’s just a singer, and she wasnt a drop out. She graduated with honours. So what she’s so country. That’s where she came from and was born to be. It’s God’s gift and she is grateful for that. All I am saying just leave her alone. She has her own rights and freedom of speech so as anyone else.
