OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood Buys Her Own Video

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

After obsessing over Carrie Underwood’s new “Good Girl” video Monday (March 19) and watching it no less than a dozen times (seriously), I wondered what she had to say about it. So I checked Underwood’s new Twitter account. After announcing its debut last week, she wrote, “Just bought my own video for ’Good Girl’ on iTunes!” and included a hashtag of “#isthatsowrong.” I cannot blame her, so I’d say absolutely, “No, that is not so wrong.” But here’s what it does make me wonder: Does Underwood get some kind of artists discount? Or did she pay the full $1.99? Is it the first video of her own that she bought? How often has she watched it? Will she write a customer review and add to the current 100 reviews of the video? How many stars will she give it? And do all the other country stars buy their own videos and, for that matter, download their own songs? Just curious.
