Unlike many celebs who claim they never asked to be a role model, Carrie Underwood takes the responsibility to heart.
"I take it very seriously, and my motto is I would never want to do anything that would embarrass my own children, in the future," Underwood, 26, tells fans in an Invitation Only Q&A that will air Tuesday. "And I think that's the best way to look at things."
She adds two other reasons why she won't follow the likes of Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton: "I never want to do anything that would make my parents, you know, my role models, disappointed in me."
She's not hindered by her American Idol fame, either.
"I literally would not change a thing at all, not bad stuff,” she says. “Not Simon [Cowell], like, ripping me apart on national television, in front of millions and millions of people, because that brought me to where I am now. And I’m so blessed, I wouldn’t change a thing.”
Invitation Only: Carrie Underwood — which features performances by the country crooner — will air Tuesday at 9 p.m. on CMT.
