Carrie Underwood Continues Support of HSUS

Carrie Underwood Remakes Mötley Crüe Hit for American Idol
March 9, 2009

Carrie Underwood has recorded a version of Mötley Crüe's "Home Sweet Home" for American Idol. Starting on Wednesday (March 11), the song will be played when contestants are voted off the show and will be available as a digital single on iTunes on March 16.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). "I've always loved this song, and besides being very fitting for Idol, to me, the title is also very fitting with animal rescue and finding animals their own homes," Underwood said. "So we felt it was important to tie the release into an amazing animal charity like the HSUS." Underwood won American Idol in 2005. Link

Carrie Underwood continues to financially support a vegan based, animal rights group. From a girl that grew up around ranching, it’s highly disappointing. But what’s more disappointing is her support of a group that is telling her fans to become vegans, a diet that is quite dangerous for growing and developing teenagers. This isn’t the message I want my children to get from their favorite musicians.

What a pity. Her association with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) will undoubtedly damage her career. Just like the Dixie Chicks found out, it is unwise for entertainers to align themselves with political hot button topics - and the Humane Society of the United States [HSUS] is just that. They are a lobbying organization with a $200,000,000 war chest. Most certainly they do not need any money from Miss Underwood. How unfortunate that she is not donating to local animal shelters or rescue groups, herself, because these needy groups will never see a penny of it from HSUS.

Agreed, she has made a deal with the devil. I hope she knows what she is up against as the HSUS true agenda unfolds. The HSUS no pet and vegan America agenda will damage her career to no end. I hope she has something else to fall back on.

I hope Carrie Underwood has nothing else to fall back on except her ass.
