Carrie Underwood is all about the music, not politics.
Yet the 29-year-old country music star has found herself in a media storm after voicing support for marriage equality.
In an interview with British newspaper The Independent, Underwood, who is married, was quoted as saying she believes everyone should have the right to love. She also noted that her church was gay-friendly and it wasn’t her job to judge people.
Underwood’s comments created a backlash online from those angry with her stance.
Speaking in London, Underwood was uncomfortable revisiting the subject and said she was staying away from reading the reactions.
