From her multiple gown changes hosting country music awards shows, to her stint as Maria Von Trapp in the live TV version of The Sound of Music, to just plain being herself: We're used to seeing Carrie Underwood glammed up to the hilt every time she makes a public appearance. However, the usually glossy/gleaming superstar showed off a whole new side in a stripped-down, bad-girl photo posted on Twitter over the holiday weekend.
This is undeniably a new look for Underwood. If her natural hair, bare feet, and apparently makeup-free face weren't unlikely enough, it's certainly not every day we see the petite blond straddling a bike which likely weighs about six times more than she does!
The motorcycle was a gift from fellow country chanteuse Miranda Lambert, who wanted to thank the "Before He Cheats" singer for her contribution to Lambert's upcoming release Platinum (the pair duet on a tune called "Somethin' Bad"). Given that a new bike can run anywhere from the $10K to $30K (and beyond) range, that's one mighty nice way to say "thank you."
"Well, it's not every day @mirandalambert buys you a motorcycle! Next stop, motorcycle driving lessons!!! #RansTheBest," Underwood tweeted. The pair of lovely ladies debuted "Somethin' Bad" live on stage at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, which were held May 18. "I had such a great time tonight singing with my girl @carrieunderwood," Lambert tweetedfollowing their performance.
Not sure if Lambert indulged in a matching purchase for herself, but we'll keep looking out for a follow-up tweet about the great time they had on their hogs together.
