Carrie Underwood Isn’t a Control Freak, But . . .
“There are few things I am in control of, but those I am über in control of,” she says
Carrie Underwood admits it—she absolutely, positively has to be early or on time, for everything. She likens her obsession with it to behavior of people with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
"I'm OCD about time," she tells The Daily Mail in London, where Carrie's headlining a two-day country festival this weekend. "I'm early for everything to the point where it freaks people out.
"That's my one—it's a good thing I guess, but I know it's annoying to the people around me. I'm on time for everything. If I'm late something's wrong, like I've wrecked my car."
The underlying issue: control.
"My life is so nuts, there are few things I am in control of, but those I am über in control of," she said. "That's why I'm on time, because I can control that.
"Food I'm weird about food, because I can be. There's certain organizational things. Stuff has its place all the time. I'm not a clean freak, but there are certain things that have their place and that's the place they have to stay."
Of course, Carrie does give herself a little flexibility with food and drink, especially when overseas.
In Ireland on Thursday (March 14), Carrie tweeted a picture of beer: "Gotta have a Guiness [sic] in Ireland!"
You go, girl!
