"I lose respect" for celebrities who back candidates, says the country singer
Like most Americans, Carrie Underwood says she’ll vote. Just don’t ask for her pick.
“There is someone I do support, but I don’t support publicly,” the country star tells TV Guide in its Nov. 10 issue.
And she thinks other stars should keep their lips zipped on their political picks: “I lose all respect for celebrities when they back a candidate.”
Underwood says voters should make up their own minds.
“It’s saying that the American public isn’t smart enough to make their own decisions,” she says. “I would never want anybody to vote for anything or anybody just because I told them to.”
