Carrie Underwood, who has a song and a CD at the top of Billboard‘s charts, advised Miley Cyrus to “just take it easy.” She also said, “If you can be engaged for a while, I’m sure that’s really nice. Plan everything slow, and take your first couple of years just to really hang out together and enjoy it.”
Cyrus recently became engaged to Liam Hemsworth. She told People Magazine, “I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam.”
Underwood also spoke out in support of gay marriage. She is reported to be traditionally conservative, but she is supportive of equality and happiness for all. “As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love and want to marry. … I can’t imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love,” she told The Independent.
She stated that her support of gay marriage and equality stems from her faith. “Above all, God wanted us to love others. It’s not about setting rules or ‘everyone has to be like me.’ No. We’re all different. That’s what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other. It’s not up to me to judge anybody.”
Underwood continues to be happy with her husband of two years, Mike Fisher. They still aren’t planning on having any children yet.
