Carrie Underwood sees gay marriage backlash
LONDON -- Carrie Underwood wants to be a musician, not a politician.
The American country music star is dealing with a backlash, however, after telling British newspaper The Independent that she supported gay marriage.
Underwood added that her church was gay-friendly and it wasn't her job to judge people -- comments that ignited online anger against her from those against gay marriage.
The Christian singer tells AP she tries to stay out of such controversy but knows it's unavoidable.
Underwood says "no matter what happens in your life, something you do, wear, say, sing whatever -- somebody somewhere is probably not going to like it too well."
Underwood wants instead to concentrate on launching her debut U.K. album release, "Blown Away," and performing at her first U.K concert at the Royal Albert Hall in London on Thursday.
