Ryan Seacrest Calls Carrie Underwood a “Superstar,” Dissing Kelly Clarkson
Maybe his comments wouldn’t have been so bad if the 41-year-old host didn’t specifically say the “Stronger” singer wasn’t the best.
After naming Carrie as No. 1, anchor Natalie Morales asked if maybe Kelly, who’s won three Grammy awards, also qualified.
“Kelly too, but, you know, I was just on New Year’s with Carrie, and she’s just a superstar,” he declared. “She really is. So I take Carrie.”
Well now we know someone isn’t getting asked to be her soon-to-arrive baby’s godfather.
But Ryan didn’t just take the morning show interview as an opportunity to diss Kelly. He also told viewers what to expect from AI’s final season.
“We’ll be focusing on the competition, but also on nostalgia,” he promised. All the series’ past hosts were invited back and former winners are expected to pop up as well.
We wonder if “Miss Independent” will even want to show up anymore.
