Carrie Underwood flips an "I don't care" to rumors involving her plastic surgery
Carrie Underwood doesn't really bother herself with the rumors about her plastic surgery being just a publicity stunt.
Carrie Underwood looks more or less the same after her accident. However, the 35-year-old country music star couldn't help but feel different about herself. The 'Cry Pretty' singer met with an accident when she fell down the stairs at her home in Nashville, as a result of which she had around 40-50 stitches on her face and had to undergo a surgery for her broken wrist. Her new album 'Cry Pretty' is set to release in September, about which she spoke during an interview with Redbookmag.
"Any time someone gets injured, it looks pretty bad in the beginning, and you're like, 'What is this going to wind up like?' You just don't know. It was also a perception thing because I look at myself [now] and I see it quite a bit, but other people are like, 'I wouldn't have even noticed.' Nobody else looks at you as much as you think they do. Nobody notices as much as you think they will, so that's been nice to learn."
The singer had posted a picture of herself on Twitter following the stitches, as she kept her selfies limited after the accident.
However, when Bravo personality Adrienne Gang posted a post-workout picture with Carrie, fans had immediately lashed out at her for using Carrie's injuries to her own benefits. Some fans said, "Shame on you for using this as your own personal gain...Stop milking her accident for yourself." However, Gang told E!News that she had no idea about the accident. "I noticed she wasn't moving her face a lot...She didn't smile in the photo and she apologized for not smiling...She was in a great mood. She was on the treadmill next to her husband for half an hour. When they got off I asked her for a photo and she said, 'Sure! No problem.' She seemed fine and not upset at all."
Carrie had carefully avoided the public eye until she appeared for the cover story of Redbookmag. During the interview, she spoke about her hard times in the past year and how she was able to cope with it through her husband, Mike's support and her three-year-old son, Isaiah's love.
She said that at the present moment she feels a lot stronger than ever. "A lot happened in 2017 during my "off year." I love it when people say, 'You took a year off.' I'm like, 'You know, I had this shoot and this thing, and I was writing this and doing that.' There was always so much to do, but it was also a very soul-searching year for me." Carrie said that her soul-searching began after she met with the accident. Moreover, last year for her was not a good one as she probably had "more downs than ups. She also revealed that her confidence was pretty much busted after the facial injury.
Carrie even wrote to her fans in January following the accident, she mentioned, "There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up...It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life.” However, she doesn't really bother herself with the rumors about her plastic surgery being just a publicity stunt. In fact, she would probably have had a plastic surgery to make the scar look better.
She left a note of confidence for the women to encourage them, "The first thing I would tell them is that we're all insecure; that's just called being human. I feel like the most important thing to realize is that even people who seem to be super confident have insecurities that they are dealing with. Honestly, you just do the best you can. Don't worry about things you can't change."
