Carrie: Maybe Hunter Hayes Should Get In on the “Lip to Lip”
Carrie says all those signs in the crowd can be distracting when she’s performing.
You might recall that Carrie Underwood gave a first kiss to a 12-year-old boy with a sign at a show in Kentucky. At the boy's request, the kiss was “lip to lip.”
Carrie said at the time that there would be no more smooches for audience members—but that hasn't stopped dozens of fans from trying. In fact, Carrie tells a California newspaper that she's seeing more signs than ever. And that's not necessarily a good thing.
“I have a hard time reading and singing at the same time and I cannot do both successfully," she says.
"I read one the other night that was something like ‘I missed my homecoming to come here.’ I felt bad. I was like, ‘You shouldn’t have done that!’”
But back to the smooches—Carrie says lots of requests are geared toward opening act Hunter Hayes. Carrie’s advice: “He’s young, he should have fun.”
