Note to potential Carrie Underwood suitors: Keep your Valentine’s Day chocolate and roses.
“I’m anti-Valentine’s Day,” says the country singer, 25, who just scored her fourth Grammy last Sunday. “I don’t believe – and this goes for anybody – your man shouldn’t love you for one day out of 365. He should love you 365 days out of the year. I want Valentine’s Day every day.”
But she does have a special guy in her life: Ace, her rat terrier. “My little man!” she says. “He’s here with me. We’ll be on a plane together Saturday.”
Trip to Disney
Underwood was one of dozens of former American Idol contestants who turned up for the grand opening of the American Idol Experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando on Thursday. The attraction allows Disney World guests to perform on an Idol-like stage while audience members vote for their favorite. And the winner lands a fast pass to the front of the line at a future Idol audition.
“I think it’s awesome,” Underwood said of hearing the current crop of Idol wannabes sing her songs. “When I went through, I wanted to be Kelly [Clarkson], I wanted to be Fantasia. It’s just so crazy now to think, ‘Oh my gosh, somebody actually wants to be me!’ ”
