Oh is that what a Carrie Underwood is? Heard the name before, never seen her. Generic blonde. Thumbs down.

Blondes usually aren't my thing but she's an EASY thumbs up. She's a very beautiful woman.

That said, I'm not surprised she's not doing well for a number of reasons even if I think it's silly she isn't.

Yeah, I generally favour brunettes but I don't automatically exclude an attractive woman just becasue she's blond.

What he said. I don't really understand that mentality. I mean, why exactly are blondes "generic" when brunettes and redheads aren't?

That said... sideways for Ms. Underwood. Objectively speaking, she's reasonably attractive, I suppose, but nothing about her really jumps out at me. Her music isn't really my sort of thing either.

Through TV and movies (and porn, but let's not go there), the generic one-size-fits-all idea of a hot girl to appeal to men is always a blonde chick with huge tits.
Hence every not so great looking chick thinks they can instantly make themselves hotter by dying their hair blonde. There are a lot of them around too. Therefore the idea of the blonde has become generic. So some people are just tired of the blonde look.

That's just my personal take on it. Obviously there's nothing stopping a blonde from being as hot as a brunette or redhead, but it's just become so common that there are too many generic blondes drowning out the hot ones.

My post is so superficial and shallow my brain hurts. Sorry.

Thumbs Up. I'll admit, she's never particularly stood out to me from the Nashville crowd (though hopefully her husband playing for the Preds helps the team sell tickets ), but she's obviously gorgeous and a good singer. Tough crowd indeed.

Also, for "Carrie Fisher."

Currently 50%. But is it really to do with her being blonde? For me, simply because have no idea who she is. Making her brunette won't make any difference

Thumbs Up. I have to admit that I like only a couple of her songs.
