Don’t Call Carrie Underwood’s “Good Girl” Character Bad
“She’s just trying to give her some knowledge,” Carrie says of her video character.
Carrie Underwood released the über-fashionable video for her latest single, "Good Girl," earlier this week, and now she's giving fans a look at the making of the clip. "It's just such a fun, rockin' song," Carrie says in a behind-the-scenes video. "We've all been this girl before who just believes the best in the man she's with no matter what, and people are like, 'What's wrong with you?' so we tried to take the story of dual personalities."
Indeed, throughout the clip, we see two sides of Carrie--one garbed in worldly black leather and even garter belts, the other one sweetly dressed in geek-chic glasses, pink and cream tones and tons of ruffles. "It's still high-fashion," says Carrie. "We're not taking a geeky stance on things and making [the 'good girl'] ugly like they do in the movies and then all of a sudden she's gorgeous once you take the glasses off."
Just don't call the dark-clothed girl "bad." "She's not bad," says Carrie. "She's not trying to get the good girl to do anything bad, she's just trying to give her some knowledge, saying, 'Wake up, open up your eyes and see this guy for who he is.' It's the knowledgeable part of yourself trying to tell . . . the innocent kind of self what's really going on."
