Carrie Underwood: In Need of a Man

by at . Comments

Carrie Underwood can sing, look beautiful and keep a smile on her face when Simon Cowell lets loose with a barrage of insults.

But she can't find a date.

Simply the Very Best

The American Idol winner tells Cosmopolitan in its May issue that she's shy and "horrible around guys" â€" and hasn't had a serious relationship since she split with college boyfriend Drake Clark in 2005.

And her newfound fame hasn't helped.

"Guys who would never look at me twice before might ask me out now, so I guess I have better opportunities," she says. "But when I do meet a guy, there's this 'Does he just want his picture in a magazine?' factor."

We assume Lindsay Lohan has the same problem. Not that it makes a difference in whether or not she brings the guy home.

Lohan's easiness aside, Underwood remains hopeful: "I'm not saying I want to get married tomorrow, but I'd like to have someone other than my mom to call when I have good news."

You know, like Britney Spears supposedly now does with Howie Day.

Underwood has been spotted recently with British singer Oliver Trevena, Cosmo notes, but she denies she ever dated fellow American Idol contestant Anthony Federov or Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

Besides the guy issue, Underwood says there's another downside to fame: "The music business is about packaging. People have to be pleased by what they see on TV or they'll change the channel."

Hence, the reason why Haley Scarnato is still on the show this season.

Finally, Carrie commented on her recent weight loss: "I gained weight on Idol, but I didn't starve myself afterward. I may think about it a little too much. I might feel guilty if I eat a pizza. But I've tried to be healthy and exercise as much as I can. If that's made me lose weight, I guess I needed to."

On a related note, apparently a heated divorce has made Jenna Jameson lose weight.

Carrie Underwood Quotes

I feel more beautiful when I see the pictures after. I'm like, 'I wish I had felt like I looked like that when I was actually there.'

Carrie Underwood

I’m content with 90 percent of me. I like my teeth. Sometimes I wonder if my orthodontist realizes how important he was.
