I just want to be able to go into the Carrie Underwood tag again without getting pissed off.
The truth is: Carrie Underwood is not Julie Andrews. Carrie Underwood is Carrie Underwood. She’s a living person. She is not an inanimate idol. She is a real person with a real soul. She is somebody’s daughter and somebody’s friend. She smiles when she is affirmed and cries when she is brutalized, just like we do. And on her worst week, she is doing a lot more than most of us do in a year. Even her legs are a Pinterest phenomenon. Most of our legs are under Snuggies right now.
Maybe acerbic public criticism doesn’t hurt seasoned stars like Carrie.
But I think it hurts our children. We can’t run up to the schoolhouse and beg for a parent conference because our child is being made fun of at recess, when we are making fun of someone else’s child at home. (Don’t pretend she can’t read what you write; she can.) We can’t expect our children to be the kind of people who will try something new and brave, when they hear us chopping those kind of people to bits.
It is not enough to tell children that risks are worth taking.
We have to let them hear us applauding the people who take them.”
I get the “Supper stare-down” starting at about 4 o’clock! Ace finally got what he wanted! [x]
honestly though, if you didn’t like last nights version of TSOM, that’s fine. but why stoop SO LOW to bringing someone down. carrie underwood is a HUMAN BEING, with FEELINGS.
