Carrie Underwood 'feels awful' that people call her husband 'Mr. Underwood' & says he won't cheat

title or description

Carrie Underwoo see Mike Fisher s her equal, not her subordinate. So when the media refers to her hockey player husband as "Mr. Underwood," the singer is understandably upset.

"It made me feel awful," the country music superstar, 29, says in the February issue o Allure "Somebody works real hard to make a name for themselves, a respectable name, and then it's 'Mr. Underwood.'"

Canadian-born Fisher, 32, was called "Mr. Underwood" many times when he was traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators in February 2011, according to the "Blown Away" singer.

"He was drafted there, and that was the only team he had ever played for [in the United States]. He would have played and he wanted to play for Ottawa for his whole career. He had no say in any of it," Underwood says in her husband's defense. "[But] I love it that he's here."

Underwood is in it for the long haul with Fisher, despite what doubters say.

"We've seen a lot of celebrities, professional athletes, not exactly always being on their best behavior away from girlfriends, wives, families," she says. "People would say, 'Do you ever worry that? You know, he's an athlete, he's young, he's good-looking?' And I've never had to worry about him, because I've never trusted anybody so completely. Or I didn't know the true meaning of trust. He just. . . He just wouldn't do that."

Though the "Before He Cheats" chart topper has often sung about heartbreak, the athlete makes her feel more loved than ever. "We want that person to be everything we've always wanted," Underwood tel Allur of her music. "If they're not Prince Charming, we try to make them Prince Charming. But Prince Charming does exist! I found one."

i always hope that whenever he gets a penalty in a game, the arena plays "maybe next time he'll think before he cheats" while he's in the penalty box lol.

lmfao! do they? they should.
mydogfred 18th-Jan-2013 10:51 pm (UTC)
why does she feel awful..

sometimes i find her personality really unlikeable.
swissbeauty23 18th-Jan-2013 11:40 pm (UTC)
she's got that annoying Republican-vibe to her

My name would sounds stupid any other way, so it's not ever changing. Pre-gaming the divorce.

All my bank stuff in a foreign country has my name, so it's awkberg if I change it here and not there.

Plus I'm Chinese and my BF is white. It's gonna be so weird plus his last name is Portuguese.

So the answer is hopefully no.

Idk if i would change my name. depends if my husband has a short and good last name. my last name is 11 characters long and no one can spell/ pronounce it unless they speak Spanish.

I'm conflicted. On one hand, I think it's kind of primitive for a woman to take her husband's name just because he's a man. I don't know, but to me it feels like a dumb tradition that implies that you're his property (sort of like having your father ~give you away~ at your wedding), and I really don't like that. On the other hand, I cherish the idea of my husband and my children and I all having the same last name. To me, that's just an important thing to be a family unit and it would mean a lot to me.

So I don't know. Maybe I'd have my name legally changed from FirstName MiddleName LastName to FirstName MaidenName Husband'sLastName? Or maybe we can both hyphenate both of our last names together, if the names aren't too cumbersome. Idk.
velvetunicorn 18th-Jan-2013 11:02 pm (UTC)
Yes this is my thought process as well. I imagine I'd keep mine professionally and tack his name on for legal purposes but I'll never be Mrs. anything. A couple of months ago, it popped into my head that a woman changes her Status 3 times in her life depending on her age / marital status yet a man is Mr. from birth to death. It really annoyed me and I got really wound up about it. Ms. FOREVER!
abcdlovelife 18th-Jan-2013 11:21 pm (UTC)
yep im hoping to hyphenate my last name
soavantgarde 18th-Jan-2013 11:30 pm (UTC)
it's just weird to me how out of the question it is to have your husband take your last name

like why is his identity/name any more important than mine?
_eleni 19th-Jan-2013 01:12 am (UTC)
You also have the option of creating a whole new last name that both you and your husband could take on. It's kind of an out there idea but I do know a couple that did this and I think it's awesome.
soleil_luna 19th-Jan-2013 02:42 am (UTC)
that IS awesome. i like when people use maiden names as middle names for their children? i think it's a nice way to honor your family if you decide to take someone else's last name
kurtvonnegut 18th-Jan-2013 10:53 pm (UTC)
i have a last name that is characteristic of my race/ethnicity so fuck if i'm changing it to something anglo tbh
roguewave3 18th-Jan-2013 11:03 pm (UTC)
Are you certain you are going to marry a white person?
kurtvonnegut 18th-Jan-2013 11:06 pm (UTC)
no but i'm currently dating one and i live in boulder colorado which is like 95% white.
deathbytamarind 19th-Jan-2013 12:03 am (UTC)
Same, I like my Hispanic last name and fuck you (you in general, not you, kurtvonnegut) if you think I'm changing it to some basic Anglo shit.
_eleni 19th-Jan-2013 01:13 am (UTC)
This was one of the reasons why I didn't change my last name (among many other reasons). I liked that my name represented my ethnicity and felt weird changing it to a name that represented a completely different ethnicity.
girlwonderrobin 18th-Jan-2013 10:55 pm (UTC)
I'm currently engaged, and tbh, I actually prefer his last name over mine. You'd hate it too if you'd been called Shitley...

he'll survive.

He won't cheat because he knows she'll dig her key into the side of his pretty little souped-up 4 wheel drive, carve her name into his leather seats, take a Louisville slugger to both head lights and slash a hole in all 4 of his tires.

if i get married i'm not changing my name unless the other person has a really, really cool name. my last name has two possible spellings and mine is the stranger/less common one, so it's annoying, but i've gotten used to it.
vagabonden 18th-Jan-2013 10:57 pm (UTC)
As time goes on, she annoys me more and more.

I personally wouldn't care if my husband was referred to in that way, and he wouldn't care, either. I kept my maiden name for art business reasons where I was already known as that name, even though I like my husband's name more....oh well.
anolinde 18th-Jan-2013 10:58 pm (UTC)
Never changing my name tbh. Fuck that shit.

(Unless my husband has, like, the coolest last name ever. Then maybe I'd consider.)

Not planning on having kids, but if I did, I'd make sure that they got my last name. It pisses me off that the husband's name is always the default.
lonexmirage 18th-Jan-2013 10:58 pm (UTC)
I don't see the big deal. It took my parents 27 years to get married, so people were always calling my dad Mr. ___Mom's last name____. People always just assumed that we all had the same last name or something. He even signed his name as that on report cards, notes home from teachers, and on lots of random things just to mess with people's heads. I guess he's just secure in his masculinity, haha.

These two are so cute together. Mike is like a guys guy and treats Carrie so adorably well. Watching their interview on Oprah you can see how much they cherish one another. Saying that, I think it would be annoying to call him Mr. Underwood seeing as how he's such a tough guy and I'm super old school when it comes to things like these.

There are just some cases where I prefer a man to be a man, whatever that means.

LOL @ all these responses. It's not even that serious.
kurtvonnegut 18th-Jan-2013 11:12 pm (UTC)
lol no one is taking it seriously, they are making humorous responses to a humorous opinion.
