Listen. There seem to be a lot of people who are pretty upset that Carrie Underwood still looks flawless after her accident, and after saying her face might look different when she comes back. I’m not sure why that would bother you – she’s human and has insecurities just like the rest of us, and at the time, she had a bunch of stitches in her face and really didn’t know what that was going to mean in the future. And she also has a team of professionals who are experts at using makeup to disguise pretty much any flaw. So go ahead and take a seat.
Carrie talked about the accident to Hoda Kotb on the Today show, and about her first performance after the accident, when she sang “Cry Pretty” at the ACM Awards. Turns out there were some insecurities there, too, and she said it was like she was living the song while she was singing it, but then went back to just Carrie when it was over. So that standing ovation she got? It was a little uncomfortable.
Watch the whole interview here, and find out where her favorite place to cry is. If you’re wondering, and I know you are, mine is in the kitchen. Possibly with ice cream. Or wine. Or cake. I’m not picky.
