Carrie Underwood lands the June cover of Marie Claire, proclaims, “I’m not a mushy person at all.”

Carrie Underwood lands the US cover of Marie Claire (earlier today we saw Miranda Kerr’s racy Australia cover). I think she looks absolutely gorgeous on the cover, and in the picture inside. It’s not a typical magazine cover, and I think I kind of like that. She looks very beautiful.

In the interview, she talks about how she’s perceived by the public, and how she can’t help her personality. It’s obviously gotten her where she is today, so who’s complaining?

Here are some highlights:

On her personality: “I’m not a mushy person at all. We were never a huggy family. Or a ‘let’s talk it out’ family. Technically I have siblings but they are quite a bit older than me – I was the accident – so I have the only-child syndrome going on. I’m a little more selfish, a little more independent, a little closed. I do wish I were softer. I wish I were able to form relationships better. But hey, I mean…I’m not a sociopath.”

On anxiety: “At the beginning of my career, I used to have panic attacks. People were touching me, screaming – it made me really nervous. In public, I just get nervous. It’s a physical reaction, feeling like the walls are closing in. The fans are great. It’s not their fault. I don’t ever want to come across as ungrateful. But on my end, it is hard for me to process. Because I am still just me.”

On awkward moments: “My husband calls me the queen of awkward moments. Anything that can be made awkward, I will make it awkward.”

What she wrote in her high school yearbook: “You were supposed to say what you would be doing in 10 years, and I said, ‘I will be rich, famous, and married to a hot guy.’ I guess I should have added a few more things.”

On having kids: “I don’t feel old enough to have kids. I know I am mature. But being responsible for another human?”
