Carrie Underwood: Dating is Tough

at . Comments

While it may be hard to sympathize with a beautiful singer when it comes to dating, Carrie Underwood made some good points about her love life under the glare of celebrity during a recent interview.

"Eventually you are going to get busted if you are dating someone," the American Idol champion told Nashville's Tennessean newspaper in an interview published Sunday. But she added "there are definite ways around it."

In this latest profile, part of her media rounds to promote her new album Carnival Ride (out Tuesday), Underwood talked about Romo and the pitfalls of finding love after American Idol.

Despite rumors to the contrary, Carrie said her and Romo were never officially a couple. But the two remain close pals.

"Right now, the place we are at, he is my best friend. He'll call me after games. ... Either I'm flying high with him or making him feel better. It took a little while to get to this point. It seemed like maybe for a bit we were headed there. We never got there."

But what about Gossip Girl actor Chace Crawford? Are he and Underwood now dating?

"It's just weird when it's not a date and people immediately assume it is," Carrie said, although it was unclear if she had a certain young star in mind.
