Vegetarian Views: Carrie Underwood


Carrie Underwood grew up on a cattle farm, but her family’s form of income did not stop her from choosing to be a vegetarian.  In an interview she said, “they were like my pets, eating them freaked me out…  I’d rather pet them, and talk to them than eat them.”

Being a country music icon and this doesn’t exactly  fit the mold of a true country girl and her followers don’t always agree with her. While most of us love to hate her for her flawless skin, perfect hair, and legs to die for, there are others who hate her for what she doesn’t feed that bangin’ bod.

For example, this FFA (Future Farmers of America) club organized a walkout when she performed at the National FFA convention.

While I am a supporter of farmers, I’m also a supporter of people who stand by their choices.  I think it’s important for her to be proud of her decision to be a vegetarian and not try and play nice with her fans.  If people get offended, so what?  If they schedule a walkout, oh well.  Maybe her message shouldn’t be, “don’t eat meat,” but instead, “stand up for what you believe in.”  And that’s why this next interview bothers me.  She laughs about how she has to hide the fact that she’s a vegetarian (Sorry, Car, everybody knows now, so stop trying to deny it), because she’ll get booed in some areas of the country.
